UPDATED: FAU Student Threatens to Kill Teacher in Class; Students Respond by Filming the Whole Thing (VIDEO)

fau-flip-thumb.JPG
UPDATE, 3/30: Carr's family has commented about her history of mental illness.

UPDATE, 3/22, 4:50 p.m.: We got the police report in this case, and it's a doozy.

UPDATE, 12:11 p.m.: The student has been identified as Jonatha Carr. The University Press, FAU's student paper, has the full story.

Original post:

​An unnamed Florida Atlantic University student was forcibly removed from class yesterday after screaming, among other things, "I will kill the fuck out of you" in a biology class.

Sitting in the front row of the classroom, she screams at a person who appears to be the teacher, "I hate this shit" and then "You better shut the fuck up before I fucking kill you." The class, rather than running away or moving to protect the teacher or anything, responds by going "oooooohhhhh" like a bunch of second-graders who just heard Suzie call Billy a fart-smeller. In one video, several students are filming on cell-phone cameras.

She then hits another student in the face; he apparently decided against clobbering the woman in favor of waiting for her to be removed by two men described in an FAU statement only as "employees." The statement also said that "the FAU Police Department escorted the student off of campus property and transported her to a local hospital for examination in accordance with Florida's Baker Act."

Here's one video from the class:

The people that are just sitting there afraid of one little black idiot are a perfect examples of how a couple of terrorist could overtake an entire airplane and crash it. Where is your pride and sense of self respect in situations like this? I swear, we as americans are so weak as a unit, and that boy that got pushed in the face, and did nothing but look an his cell phone, is an embarrassment. That girl would be eating fried chicken and watermelon through a straw for a year if she put her greasy hands on me.

this was really hard to watch this woman obviously had a mental breakdown the students should have gotten out of there they put themselves in a dangerous position standing around laughing and recording her rant. if she had a weapon they could've been hurt. the thing to do is get to safety, call for help, and let authorities handle the situation.she simply had a meltdown we should be sympathetic to the fact that sometimes people crack under pressure. im thankful that she did'nt lose her life over this and that the police officers handled the situation with compassion. Hopefully she'll get the treatment that she needs toward a full recovery.

I imagine that some of the students are laughing because that's how some people respond to uncomfortable situations.  It's not that they found the situation amusing.  They were just nervous as hell because they didn't know if the girl was going to pull out a gun or something.  "If I just go with it and don't appear confrontational, the situation will resolve itself."  It's the last step before you get to fight or flight.

I imagine students started filming becuase they thought they were witnessing a student just going off on a rant.  Very quickly, they probably realized they were witnessing something much worse, but at that point fear made them unable to do anything than continue with their selected course of action.

As for the girl, it's obvious this was a psychotic breakdown of some sort.  She's ill and needs treatment.  The professor should have immediately ordered everyone in the classroom to calmly exit as quickly as possible, with himself being the last to leave.  Rather than try to continue with his lecture, he should have tried to talk her down while the rest of the class exited.

Why were some of the other students laughing?

If this were a white student that said all these racial slurs, threatens a black teacher and black students, and acted like a crazy person, and then hit a fellow black student, there would be a backlash from the black community. Where is the outrage and accountability when the show is on the other foot? Disgraceful. If you hate the class, leave. There is no one making you stay there.

She should be charged with a Hate Crime.  She made racist statements about white people, threats against white people and she assaulted a white person.  If the races were reversed a hate crime charge would be automatic. She should be charged in accordance with the law, otherwise this is just more proof that hate crime laws are egregiously unfair.

This was bad considering so many killings have happend on universitys in the last years,its good she didnt have a wepon to harm anyone,clearly she was upset and angry,her anger did look like it was directed toward whites,the good thing is the authorities saw it was a need to bring her to a hospital instead of a jail cell,im sure the hospital has seen this behavior before in another patient and helped her,if she returns to school tomorrow give her a chance to say sorry,we have all had a bad expirence,pray for her not laugh at her,you would want that as well.

Sad to see a melt down like that. Everyone so focused in capturing the moment. For what? To sell it? To watch it and laugh? People, this is a woman with what appears to be a total breakdown. I hope she gets the help that she needs.

What happened to my alma mater? Have no idea why anyone would have stuck around for the entire rant. Hard to cut through the  dialect but sounded as if she was pissed at the honkies. Then there is the pussy boy who she smacked. Come on dude. That was your opening when she came back for a second shot.

Another brilliant mind lost, to drugs, stupidity and the educational establishment.  Alas, but the budding reality show producers captured valuable footage for their promo tapes.

Hey Cracker, she should get expelled for her actions, but you are just as bad as she is with your racial slurs. Regardless of her minority standing and the financial help she MIGHT receive, you disgrace the human race, and more importantly the Caucasian race, with your callous comments. Grow up.

Exactly! I can't believe he kept on lecturing. And then after the whitecoats took her away, the professor went on with his lecture...

The moron that shot him is the type of person who did not need to be carrying a weapon. Its ppl like him that piss themselves at the thought of a physical altercation, leading them to do something dumb like shooting someone instead of beating their ass.

 You can't be serious. If this had been a pretty white girl then the new would have been all over reporting that she must have some sort of mental illness and that none of it could possibly be her fault.

Ummm... She will not be in school tomorrow.

Legal charges: assault with a hate crime enhancement.

Violations of school policy would be disrupting school activity. 

I'm sure she'll be expelled.

its a damn good thing she didnt have a weapon... you don't give her another chance, or chance to say sorry, are you kidding? There's no excuse for anyone to act like that, in a class setting, on a college campus? Get the F outta here, get out of my college, get out of my state, and out of my country... lets put her up for auction with crazy people from the movie Hostel 2 and let them take a hack at her. You go to college to gain the necessary knowledge and resources to better yourself as a person and go on to start a career. Would she then pull this garbage on an employer for some reason? She needs to pay a visit to Dr. Hannibal Lector and let him straighten her out.

Well, I think if mental illness or a psychotic break is diagnosed, the DA will most likely decline to pursue criminal charges. At this point the charges are only preliminary, and the decision to file formal charges has not yet been made.

I agree that she will most likely be expelled, though I would favor suspension for the remainder of the semester, with leave to reapply next term if she gets help.

come on....coddling people like this is the reason this shit happens. college is a privelege that some people don't have the necessary means to take advantage of. she did, and she trashed it. game over. she doesn't get another blue ribbon for showing up.....she loses her opportunity to attend FAU. there are millions of people in this world that would gladly give everything they have to sit in her chair....there are 19 years old kids getting shot at in afghanistan so that when/if they get back, they can go to college......and she uses it as a pulpit to spew her misguided and misdirected anger towards people that are more than likely on her side? she told that boy that she punched that "YOU raped all of my ancestors". how in the world was it him that raped her ancestors?? did he and marty mcfly jump in the delorean and go back in time to rape people? come on. this bitch picked the wrong time and place to jump on her uneducated, racist soapbox. game over, you lose. enjoy your social security/disability checks for the rest of your life, we'll foot the bill, and go yell at a stop sign.

Good insight, but she's a danger to teachers. Why let her back in next term? Should the school take great care to be sure she only has black teachers in the future to avoid a repeat? If I was the school administrator overseeing this case, I would work with her. But she assaulted two people.
