A substitute teacher was fired for anti-law enforcement comments she made in a Sumner County, Tennessee, classroom, reports WKRN.
The teacher was let go Wednesday morning after allegedly making those disparaging comments in front of students studying government.
According to a police officer whose son is a senior in the class, the substitute said all cops are criminals and they wake up every day wondering how many people they are going to kill.
That account was confirmed to WKRN by Sumner County Schools' Public Information Officer Jeremy Johnson.
"She made an inappropriate comment to students in a class. It was about police officers, and it was not representative of what the administration or the school system believes," Johnson said.
The parent and police officer also told News 2 that his son and another student, also the child of a law enforcement officer, were upset by the teacher's remarks and left the class in protest.
According to Johnson, the principal immediately investigated, spoke to the class, and escorted the substitute teacher off campus.
