V for Vendetta obsessive Clay Duke took a Florida school board meeting hostage, apparently irate over his wife being fired by the district. Here's video of a board member, Ginger Littleton, trying to disarm Duke, who eventually killed himself without harming anyone else.
Here's a link to Duke's Facebook page, which gives rare insight into the mind of the sort of person who goes off the deep end (and please chill on the jokes about an anti-government anarchist nutjob being pissed that his wife got fired from a public school job). From his bio statement:
My Testament: Some people (the government sponsored media) will say I was evil, a monster (V)… no… I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us…
"There's class warfare, all right, but its my class, the rich class that's making war and we're winning"
– Warren Buffet
Rise like lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number.
Shake your chains to earth like dew.
Which in sleep has fallen on you.
Ye are many – they are few.

His favorite quotation? "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!"
His pics are heavy on V for Vendetta stills and images such as this one:
