A professor at Rutgers University angry about Donald Trump’s victory was dragged to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation—after he threatened to shoot white people.

New York City police came to Kevin Allred’s house on Tuesday after he tweeted: "Will the 2nd amendment be as cool when i buy a gun and start shooting at random white people or no?” Campus cops had been alerted by someone else at Rutgers, who was alarmed by the violent tweet, and they alerted the NYPD.

They didn’t come to arrest him—but, rather, came to take him to the hospital for a mandatory psychiatric evaluation. Officers placed him into an ambulance, and brought him to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, where he was released after a two-hour exam.

Undeterred by the psychiatric evaluation, Allred continued to tweet about his experience while he was in the ambulance: "NYPD just came to my house bc Rutgers Police told them i'm a threat based on political statements i've made on campus and on twitter.”
He continued to defend his initial kill-the-white-people tweet, as free speech: "

YES, my 2nd amendment tweet was incendiary but completely w/in free speech. ZERO direct threat involved. posed as a rhetorical question.” He added, "expressing anger/rage over politics in whatever form online is MUCH DIFFERENT than making a distinct plan to kill real people."

The tweet that landed Allred in the psych ward wasn’t his only controversial tweet. Last week, he posted an image of a burning American flag, along with a status saying, "“Every single person that voted for Donald Trump is a racist. or saw racism as easily overlooked."

Allred returned to Rutgers to teach on Wednesday morning—but not before launching one final, and exceptionally ironic, tweet: “White people's feelings are so fragile.”
