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