A northeast Ohio music teacher has been suspended after posting a Facebook rant over the weekend to complain about trick-or-treaters.
Akron Firestone High School teacher David Spondike described some trick-or-treaters he said came from the “ghetto” by using the N-word twice and said they’d urinated on a telephone pole in front of his home.
“I don’t mind if you come from the ghetto to trick or treat,” Spondike posted. “But when you whip out your teeny ***** and **** on the telephone pole in front of my front yard and some preschoolers and toddlers, you can take your ******-*** back where it came from. I don’t have anything against anyone of any color, but *******, stay out!”
The post was taken down by late Monday morning and the 51-year-old Spondike apologized “to those who are sincerely offended” before deleting his Facebook account.
Akron Schools placed Spondike on administrative leave, and a school official said evidence from the case was sent to the Ohio Department of Education as a procedural matter.
