The professor accused of killing three colleagues during a faculty meeting was a Harvard-educated neurobiologist, inventor and mother whose life had been marred by a violent episode in her distant past.

More than two decades ago, police said Amy Bishop fatally shot her teenage brother at their Massachusetts home in what officers at the time logged as an accident _ though authorities said Saturday that records of the shooting are missing

The evil Harvard psychopath has a track record of murder.

She is reportedly also a socialist...so she and Obama have something in common.

Hey, she thought they were her dead brother coming back to get her. She had to protect herself, you know?

"Workplace shootings of that kind are overwhelmingly male," said Franklin E. Zimring, a law professor and director of violence prevention at the University of California, Berkeley. "Going postal was essentially a monopoly position of the XY chromosome."

Oh, Franklin, you dumb-ass. There is no XY chromosome.

What's the difference between Delahunt and Specter?

Delahunt's sponsor/murderer didn't chop up the body parts.

At the University of Chicago Division of Biological Sciences, the usual consequence of not getting tenure is to get hired into a tenured position at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Yes, there’s an X chromosome and and Y chromosome, but no XY chromosome. The poor boob should have said that going postal was the monopoly position of the Y, or male, chromosome.

From a story at Boston.com:

At his home in Braintree today, Polio, who is retired, disputed Frazier’s version.

‘‘That’s a joke. That’s got to be a joke. If anybody knows history, I never covered anything up,’’ he said. He said he thought that the Bishop family’s explanation of an accident was murky and that he wanted the district attorney to hold an inquiry.

But just one day after the shooting, Polio told the Globe, ‘‘every indication at this point in time leads us to believe it was an accidental shooting.’’

The district attorney at the time, current US Representative William D. Delahunt, is out of the country and could not be reached for comment.

Looking more and more like something was covered up.

“The evil Harvard psychopath has a track record of murder.”

And “distant past”, my butt! This happened during the second term of Ronald Reagan, not in the Silurian period, for cryin’ out loud!!! Like what does this jackass think-we should just “get over” a murder committed back in 1986??? These MSM’ers are IDIOTS!!!

Oddly enough, Delahunt said Friday, on the day of the shooting, he might retire from Congress. Like to know what time he said that. New York Times reported Saturday night it could not reach him...he is in Israel.
February 13, 2010 US Representative William Delahunt said yesterday that he is considering retiring from his congressional seat representing the South Shore and Cape Cod . . .

Delahunt says he is considering leaving his seat - The Boston Globe

And from the New York Times, Saturday, Feb 13th:

The district attorney at the time was Bill Delahunt, who is now a Democratic congressman from Massachusetts. Mr. Delahunt was traveling in Israel and could not be reached.

This case brought to mind another case in 1992 in Bakersfield, Ca. I tried to find the story to refresh my memory and I can’t.

A guy had a couple of visits from a health department worker at one of his rentals or a dive hotel he owned. She showed up at the place to talk to him and he shot her. He then goes and takes all the panels of his car out,and places newspaper padding inside and then put the panels back on. I remember the car was a older type long Cadillac like a El Dorado. Not something you use for a getaway car.

Then he tries to make a break for it and get out of town. Law enforcement followed, they had a big shoot out and killed him. Newspaper was a waste of time.

Anyway, turns out the guy had killed his whole family when he was a teen in Alaska. This will sound familiar, his records were kept hidden or expunged because at the time he killed his family Alaska was not state. It became a state in 1959. We could have a few of these nuts running around. You have to know when someone kills they have a problem.

This morning on fox they said this woman in this article shot her brother, then ran out of the house, pointed the gun at a car. Then law enforcement had to take her by gun point. And all records are missing. Her mother had something to do with the policie department at the time so she was released to her mom. She will claim insanity.
