A Florida Atlantic University student flew into a rage during an evolution class, threatening to kill her professor and her fellow students.
WARNING: Some language below may not be suitable for everyone.
At one point in a video of the incident posted to YouTube, student Jonatha Carr screams, "I will kill the **** out of you."
University Press, the school newspaper, reports that the altercation started after Carr repeatedly asked her professor, Stephen Kajiura, "How does evolution kill black people?"
Kajiura tried to explain that evolution doesn't kill anyone and that's when Carr got even more emotional, eventually slamming the palm of her hand into the forehead of a fellow student.
In the YouTube description, FAU student Rachel Bustamante, describes the incident as, the "craziest thing I've ever seen."
Students and staff eventually tried to get Carr to leave the classroom and police were later called, according to the Miami New Times.
The paper also reported that police used a taser on Carr and that she was later sent to a hospital for observation.

Totally called the taser and mental evaluation

In America, college is more of a racket than anything else. What I think needs to happen, is a complete overhaul of the education system. By 18 (12th grade), you should be ready to enter the work force (don't tell me it's to young to decide on a degree). You don't have a sudden breakthrough from 18-22. High school should be your college education (free). Therefor all you pay for is graduate degrees etc. To many kids can't afford college, and end up in trouble. Soon enough our country will be a shithole because of it, with extremely rich and extremely poor, aka China.

Well every education has a requirement. Most after highschool requires a certain grade-average for you to be accepted.

To get to where I am right now, I was required to have a B average and a relevant bachelor degree. Experience in this area of work certainly doesn't hurt you either.

The quality of education is fairly high, I'm unable to find any statistics ATM as I'm kinda in a hurry and off to work. I'll try to look something up when I get home

Man that girl has some mental issues. She needs to be in a hospital in a straight jacket instead of a classroom.
