When an Atlanta physics teacher was caught on camera threatening to “put a bullet” through a student’s head, he was put on administrative leave.
“Don’t smile at me, man. That’s how people like you get shot,” Rockdale Career Academy teacher Paul Hagan can be seen telling a black student. “I got a bet by the time you’re 21 somebody’s gonna put a bullet right through your head. Okay? And it might be me, the one who does it.”
The footage went viral after it was posted to Facebook by April Carr, the threatened student’s mother.
“I think it’s a terroristic threat on my son’s life that I definitely don’t take lightly,” she said.
“Hagan went on the violent rant after Carr’s son and other students were laughing while he wrote an equation on the board,” the mom said.
Carr filed a police report and is calling for the teacher to be fired. The school said it was still investigating the incident.
