AURORA, CO — A Colorado man has been arrested for allegedly bringing a firearm to school and threatening staff members, the Sentinel reports.

That would be bizarre enough, but the man who came in and did the threatening was none other than a high school dean.

Court and jail records show Tushar Rae, 30, was released from Denver jail after posting a $200,000 bond in connection with the Aurora case stemming from charges of carrying a concealed weapon at a school and making violent threats.

The high school dean seems to have gone completely insane. According to the report:

According to an arrest affidavit filed in the Arapahoe County District Court, the jarring incident stemmed from an argument Tuesday between Rae and school Principal Taisiya Tselolikhin over school testing practices.

Rae did not arrive for work Wednesday, but texted Tselolikhin Wednesday afternoon and told her to meet him in his office. When they met that afternoon, Rae took a black handgun from his waistband and placed it on the counter between himself and Tselolikhin, police reported.

“Try and f**k with me. You shouldn’t have said what you said. I don’t want to hurt you, I’m going to hurt all the people around you,” Rae said, according to the affidavit. He then said he was going to shoot the knee caps off of two school administrators.

Obviously, after the conversation, Tselolikhin got the school placed on lockdown. Police swarmed the school, and Rae was later arrested in his home.

Coming from a family of educators — there are no ideological issues on education worth going on a kneecapping spree.

Just so that’s clear.
