Looking for info on college instructor who shot faculty members
No source, just a question, personal | June 11, '12 | me

Posted on 06/11/2012 8:40:16 PM PDT by 4buttons

College instructor, woman, in Georgia I believe. Maybe two years ago or so. Shot other faculty members at a meeting; she had shot her brother, I think, when she was younger. Originally from Massachusetts. Looking for outcome of second shooting, jail time, NAME, etc.

Thanks.

My friends, thank you.

I googled this just now(as I have her name), worth a look, too, if you are interested, as I am. Thanks again.

It’s interesting how fast this story vanished off the radar when it became known that she was a Democrat and a staunch Obama supporter.

If she had been anyone who could have been tied to the right in any way, everyone would still be getting daily updates courtesy of the MSM.

I googled this phrase:

“College instructor, woman, in Georgia I believe. Maybe two years ago or so. Shot other faculty members at a meeting; she had shot her brother, I think, when she was younger. Originally from Massachusetts. Looking for outcome of second shooting, jail time, NAME, etc. “

I got 41K hits.

-her parents were connected, academic-political.

I think her father was a police officer and her mother was a court magistrate or manager - they used their political influence to get her out of jail time for killing her brother.

The broad got off the hook for the bro (shotgun) shooting cuz her mother worked as some biggie at the local PD —knew the chief personally.

They were interrogating the psycho, but Mommy showed up, and yanked her out of there in no time.

Apparently in that jurisdiction if you REAlllllly prefer for your kids to not face charges for capital murder, then that’s ok, ya just gotta really be bothered by that prospect.

Got off scott free so later she, uh...went on that l’il KILLING SPREE and stuff....

She was originally from Harvard, she was Jewish, and had been transferred after some kooky problems to Alabama. Then, lo and behold, that didn’t go so well, either.

I remember that there was a committee that was negatively evaluating one of her papers, or something.

And....she got MAD.

That woman is crazy AND evil. The deep thinkers just humored her out of an instinct of fear.

I also believe that congressman William Delahunt, Democrat, MA, decided not to seek reelection after Bishop killed her coworkers in AL, because he was the DA that decided not to press charges against Amy Bishop years ago when she killed her brother.

“If she had been anyone who could have been tied to the right in any way, everyone would still be getting daily updates courtesy of the MSM.”

Yep. And that’s all just part of the cycle of media bias. Dems/Left=Good, Reps/Right=Bad.

Can you imagine what the reaction would have been if it had been reported that George W. Bush was hand-selecting drone targets?

But when Obama does it, it’s OK, in fact it’s cool and macho.

Breitbart was right, the MSM is the ENEMY.

Another case that originated in MA, that seems to have dropped off the radar. Student, I think, killed professor, ROP involved somehow.
