David Spondike is a music teacher at Firestone High School and he is now on paid administrative leave while the school district investigates what they are calling racially insensitive comments.

According to, the school sent out a release describing the comment. They say the Facebook comments "appeared to reflect his anger over actions taken by young people trick or treating and, according to his Facebook writings, urinating on or near his property and in front of his children.

The comments have now been removed and the account has been deleted.
