The Berserker

Dean Jake is meeting with the father of a kid who is about to be suspended. The father is getting emotional because the suspension amounts to a violation of his son’s probation and means he’s gonna have to go to jail. The father’s desperation is nearing a climax and he is actually about to cry when the phone rings and Jake answers it. It’s the head of security. He informs Jake that the man he is meeting with is carrying a loaded gun. The man has a legal-carry permit and he informed Safety before going through scanning. Jake hangs up the phone and calmly excuses himself. He walks to the other side of the office and immediately informs our union representative, Dean Flint.

“Is he a cop?” asks Flint.

“I have no idea,” Jake says.

“I’m VERY upset right now!” Roars Flint. “He could go berserk in theah and we’d awll be dead! I wanna know who knew what! And when!”

“This fury, which was called berserkergang, occurred not only in the heat of battle, but also during laborious work. Men who were thus seized performed things which otherwise seemed impossible for human power. This condition is said to have begun with shivering, chattering of the teeth, and chill in the body, and then the face swelled and changed its colour. With this was connected a great hot-headedness, which at last gave over into a great rage, under which they howled as wild animals, bit the edge of their shields, and cut down everything they met without discriminating between friend or foe.”
