Cops: Teacher Tried to Take a Hit Out on a Student Because He's Gay

An Atlanta teacher remains on administrative leave amid allegations that he wanted to put a "hit" on a student after questioning the teen's sexuality.

Police have charged Randolph Forde -- who teaches at Mundy's Mill High School in Clayton County -- with making terroristic threats.

According to the police report, on October 9 Randolph took a student off a school bus and told him he "would pay him to kill the victim." When the student asked who the target would be, Randolph said he'd write the name on a note. On that note was the name of a student who he a run-in with days prior. On about Sept. 29, the student said Randolph summoned him outside the classroom and asked him if he is gay. Then, according the student's attorney, the teacher and student had an argument in class and Randolph threatened to "hit him in his fucking mouth."


The student made complaints to the school and according to his attorney, nothing was done until a police was filed on Oct. 12.

Randolph was arrested on Oct. 14. He's free on $10,000 bail.

Here's a local news report with the boy's mother and attorney.
