Caught On Video: Georgia Teacher Threatens To Shoot Student For Laughing In Class
A shocking video has emerged online showing a Georgia teacher threatening to “put a bullet in one of his students head” for laughing in his classroom.
Paul Hagan, a teacher at Rockdale Career Academy is being investigated after footage of the incident surfaced on social media, the Atlanta Journal reported.
“You screw with me you’re going to be in big a** trouble,” physics teacher Paul Hagan can be heard saying. “Don’t smile at me. That’s how people like you get shot. I got a bet. I bet by the time you’re 21 somebody’s going to put a bullet in your head. OK. And it might be me the one who does it.”
According to the report, the students were laughing and joking around while Hagan was writing on the board prior to the outburst. But one student’s mother, April Carr, didn’t find anything funny about the incident.
Carr posted the video to Facebook and started a petition demanding the teacher be fired. While he apologized to the 11th-grade-class, he was only put on administrative leave.
Rockdale County Public Schools released a statement saying: “We were made aware of the video Thursday afternoon and immediately launched an investigation into this personnel matter, which is ongoing at this time.”
