What do you do when you are an assistant professor at a public university and youve been caught red-handed retweeting a tweet advocating murder?
If youre University of Rhode Island professor Erik Loomis, you delete your entire Twitter account
Were glad he wont be advocating violence on Twitter any longer. Hopefully, he will use the freed-up time to seek help from a mental health professional.

Update: What exactly is Loomis hiding? Before he deleted his Twitter account, we managed to make note of a few of his angrier tweets

This moron is a history professor? Hey, white boy, we'll drop you in the the middle of Mogadishu in 2012 and see whose head ends up on a stick.
Ah, yes, the Patton reference! I wonder is Professor Pasty would have gotten it?
Who is she? Let's ask wikipedia:
"A frequent theme of her workparticularly evident in her early storieshas been the dilemmas of a girl coming of age and coming to terms with her family and the small town she grew up in. In recent work such as Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage (2001) and Runaway (2004) she has shifted her focus to the travails of middle age, of women alone and of the elderly. It is a mark of her style for characters to experience a revelation that sheds light on, and gives meaning to, an event.
A *GUY* LOVES THESE BOOKS...? HOW GAY IS THAT...?
The haircut pinned my gaydar. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
However, it does leave me curious - when he discussed dildos in class, did he bring one of his own?
...with females, at least.

He is a dildo.
Princess Loomis lectures about THE AMERICAN WEST...?!?!?!
1. How the West was Won (by brawny, lonely males with horses).
2. Scary Indians, and Techniques for Befriending them
3. Gun Battle at Boot (up my ass) Hill - Learning to REALLY Enjoy it..!
Oh. My. God. What a fruit!
I’ve always wanted to do this:
LOL... one for the ladies.
When this story popped up on FR yesterday I sent it to the Boston office of the FBI. I wonder...
He was probably “wearing” one that day.
I can’t figure out what a dildo has to do in a classroom for Americam History??
I’m curious as to whether sites such as Twitter or Facebook are liable in some way for posts that call for violence against others.
I’m also curious whether this a$$hat will have a job by the end of the week.
Further, I’m trying to recall the last time a member of the TEA Party endorsed wholesale violence against people with whom they disagree.
Conservatives can't even use crosshairs in their ads.
Copy od letter I sent today.

Re: Erick Loomis
Dear Sir or Madam,
Much has been said about the state of mind of the shooter at the elementary School in Connecticut and what may have provoked him to do such a horrible thing. Many have said he should have been diagnosed as mentally unstable and should not have been allowed in an open society.
I am writing you to say that you have this same type person, Eric Loomis, on your campus and in fact he may be as unstable as the shooter in Connecticut!!
My Loomis recently tweeted @rudepunditt First fucker to say the solution is for elementary school teachers to carry guns needs to be beaten to death. This is exactly the type of language that could cause some unstable person to go out and kill. I believe and hope you would agree that we can have a civil debate on this without the need for inciting violence?
As a member of the NRA and an advocate of teachers being armed, I now fear that my travels which take me on occasion to your fair state may put me at the risk of being harmed because of this type of tweet by Mr. Loomis.
It is my belief that you should immediately have a psychiatric evaluation of Mr. Loomis and provide the public with proof that Mr. Loomis is a stable person capable of teaching in an institution such as yours. Failure to do so and blood could possibly be on your hands because of his tweets.
