A Grafton, Wisconsin, middle school teacher allegedly made terroristic threats to his students after he discovered students had drawn swastikas on a notebook found in his class, according to reports.
On May 12, police were dispatched to John Long Middle School after a report of a teacher making threats about guns and harming students, Fox 6 in Milwaukee reported.
When police arrived, they spoke with the school principal who said David Schroeder reported finding a notebook with a swastika on it in the classroom. Then, two days later, the teacher saw two students in possession of a drawing with swastikas on it.
A student claimed Schroeder confronted the class about the drawing and said it was inappropriate before telling them, “I wish pain on all of you and your families.”
Schroeder also said he owns firearms, according to prosecutors.
He was escorted off school grounds after the incident.
Schroeder was booked into the Ozaukee County jail for making terrorist threats and exposing a child to harmful material, according to police.
Schroeder made an appearance in court on Monday and his bond was set at $10,000.
In a statement obtained by Fox 6, Schroeder’s attorney described the teacher as a “family man” and educator dedicated to “positively impacting students.”
