Kevin Allred Update: Rutgers Lecturer Taken to Bellevue for Psychiatric Evaluation

(Before It's News)

Good news — Rutgers educator Kevin Allred received some much-needed psychiatric attention, after a recent tweet earned him a visit from authorities:

Allred, who is white, was taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan by the NYPD for a psychiatric evaluation on Tuesday after his Nov. 10 tweet, which said: “Will the 2nd amendment be as cool when I buy a gun and start shooting at random white people or no…?” …

“Rutgers police contacted the 94 Precinct and requested a wellness check be conducted on the professor based on comments he made in the classroom and on Twitter about killing white people,” Kellyann Ort, with the NYPD, told Patch. “Based on these comments he was transported to Bellevue Hospital for psychological evaluation.”

After he was released, not having been arrested or charged with a crime, he quickly returned to Twitter to bark, “this is a sh**show and is proof positive that Trump’s crackdown on free speech has absolutely begun.”

Too bad they didn’t cure his paranoia while he was in Bellevue. But you can’t expect a mere university lecturer to know that Trump will not have any control over the NYPD even after he takes office.

According to his website,

Kevin’s mission is to facilitate conversations about alternative narratives, histories, and ideologies that confront mainstream America’s current definition of “normal.”

A more constructive mission for Kevin would be to aspire toward normality, rather than trying to confront it.
