"I Am Dr. Amy Bishop"

There's word of another violent episode involving the Alabama professor accused of killing three colleagues and wounding three others in a shooting rampage at a faculty meeting.

Eight years ago, Amy Bishop was charged with assault, battery and disorderly conduct after an alleged tirade at an International House of Pancakes in Massachusetts. Police say Bishop became incensed when she found out another woman had been given the restaurant's last booster seat.

The police report says Bishop hit the woman while shouting, "I am Dr. Amy Bishop."

Her husband says "the whole incident was just stupid." When asked if he was referring to his wife's actions, he said: "Everything."

James Anderson says it was "way overblown." He says it's "someone trying to make something out of nothing."

    Sounds like she was making something out of nothing to me. An ECU professor was shot in Daryl's around 199-2001 over a game of darts.

    The more I think about this, the more I get mad! Tell me how did this lady even keep her job? Tell me!

    She sounds like some ECU faculty members, except they never shot anyone, that I know of.

    Another report states that students in her class complained about her behavior in the class room and they were not listened to. Remind you a bit of Texas and the shootings there. If the college had any knowledge even by way of student complaints, they should have done something sooner and are also to blame for the deaths.

    This woman has been let off with too much! I hope the wheels of Justice stop on her and crush her. She should have been locked up for good a long time a go when she killed her brother. And for her to hit a woman in the head because she wanted a child seat at I HOP for her baby and yell I am Dr so and so! Would have laughed in her face and then told her who she really was.I don't like people like this due to they think their crap does not stink,But if you stand down wind from them everyone knows they do! I am sorry for the families here and I hope they find some peace soon and when they light her butt up in the chamber with the good stuff in her veins then justice will have been served for the teachers and her brother!

    If anyone could expect that to have happened before, I would think that tazing the crazy woman would have at least helped to a certain degree. To ALWAYS REMEMBER, if it has been that long, it would not surprise me if he was a dead man by now. Otherwise, he could have been in a foreign country and got himself a fake name. To Phil, where did you see that she went to Harvard and the victins went to N.C. State? I have never had much respect if any out of these Ivy League schools anyways.

    It's the sense of entitlement that comes from being a Harvard grad. and she looked down at two of the people she killed who were NC State grads. Elitist professors who thinks they know better than the common man and yes the same point can be said about President Obama.

    This lady has the same complex as the obama professor, "DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM".
