A Georgia special education teacher has been fired over disturbing comments that were discovered on social media.
The DeKalb County school distract has confirmed that Brian Papin, a special education teacher, is now officially OUT of a job.
He was under fire for comments that appear to encourage a BLM supporter to kill a white baby.
Papin is accused of commenting on a viral image of a BLM supporter kneeling on the kneck of a white baby.
In the comment, Papin said:
Lean into it until death! You saw the video.
It appears that Papin was encouraging the BLM supporter to kill the white baby, referencing the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer.
More details, including a statement from the school district, below:
The scary part is that Pappin is (was) a school teacher.
Not only could he have potentially posed a threat to students different from himself, but who knows what he taught in the classroom when administrators weren't watching!
Radical comments like the ones he's accused of posting on social media are not made in a vacuum.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution confirms the accusations against Pappin:
A DeKalb County School District special education teacher is being accused of making disparaging comments on a social media post that echoes a Minneapolis police officer’s knee on the neck of George Floyd.
The photo appears to show a white child pinned to the ground by two persons who appear to be Black; one has a knee on the child’s neck. It is not clear where the photo was taken or if it depicts a real assault.
“blm now m-” the caption reads.
In the Minneapolis video from May 25, several officers surround Floyd in a street as one holds a knee on his back and neck for several minutes until after he loses consciousness. Floyd was pronounced dead and the officers have been charged in connection with his death.
“Again! Your (sic) doing it wrong!” Cedar Grove High School teacher Brian Papin writes on the social media post. “One knee on center of the back one on the neck and lean into it until death! You saw the video! Get it right or stop f------ around!”
A district spokeswoman said Wednesday that Papin is still an employee with the district.
“Administrators were made aware of the disturbing social media posts,” she said. “The district is currently investigating the allegation.”
The school did not confirm whether they fired Pappin or whether he resigned.
They did confirm that he is no longer employed by the school district.
However, many social media users are claiming that Pappin resigned, and if so, they are upset that the school did not take more firm action.
If Pappin had been fired, it would be more difficult for him to get another job.
However, if he resigned, there is a better possibility of another school district hiring him.
The Daily Mail reports that Pappin resigned:
A Georgia teacher resigned after he made comments on a social media post of a man kneeling on a child's neck that was reminiscent of George Floyd's murder.
Brian Papin, who taught special education for the Dekalb County School District near Atlanta, was being investigated after his comments were reported to the district's administrators, a spokeswoman told Dailymail.com Friday.
'Again! Your (sic) doing it wrong!' Papin wrote on the social media post with the image. 'One knee on center of the back one on the neck and lean into it until death! You saw the video!', he added, in reference to footage taken by a bystander of Floyd's slaying.
'Get it right or stop f****** around!' Papin also remarked in the post.
The man in the image posted online was identified by police as Isaiah Jackson, 20, of Clark County, Ohio, who faces charges for taking the image.
Jackson was taken into custody by the Clark County Sheriff's Office on a parole violation this week and is facing possible felony charges for the image which circulated on social media with a caption 'BLM now MF', in a reference to the Black Lives Matter Movement.
Jackson was identified Tuesday after cops said they learned the image was circulating online.
What's scary is that Pappin had the conviction to post such radical comments online.
Most people who have radical beliefs try to hide them.
If he's willing to post such evil stuff on social media, then what was he teaching children in the classroom behind closed doors?
Fortunately, he will no longer be working with the special ed students at DeKalb County schools.
