MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - A substitute teacher for Rutherford County Schools has been prohibited from working in Rutherford County Schools for posts he allegedly made on social media about supporters of President Donald Trump.
Officials with Rutherford County Schools said they received several messages Wednesday about a substitute teacher allegedly “making inappropriate, threatening comments on social media during the work day.”
Some of the statements, purportedly made by David Colin, were posted in January and on November 9.
“The only good trump [sic] supporter is a dead trump [sic] supporter,” one post read.
Replying to a different comment a month later, Colin posted: "Shooting [Trump supporters] sounds more appealing than getting along with them."
Speaking to NewsChannel 5, Colin admitted he posted those comments in the aftermath of a divisive election.
As of Thursday night, Colin was still employed by PESG, which contracts substitute teachers to Rutherford County Schools.
PESG officials said that Colin's behavior was "under investigation," and that he would not be placed in any schools at all, until the investigation was completed.
