Teacher Busted For Naked Stroll In School Hallway

Cops: Georgia man claimed his “third eye was open”

APRIL 28--A teacher who stripped off his clothes and walked naked around a Georgia elementary school gave cops a New Age explanation for his behavior, claiming that he had achieved a “new level of enlightenment” and “wanted everybody to be free now that his third eye was open," according to a police report.

For allowing others to see his third eye last Friday afternoon at the B.C. Haynie Elementary School, Harlan Porter was charged with public indecency. The 31-year-old educator, pictured in the mug shot at right, was booked into the Clayton County Jail on the misdemeanor charge and released after posting $2000 bond.

Since Porter’s April 22 stroll--which came at about 3:20 PM--was not witnessed by any students, who had been dismissed, he avoided more serious charges.

After Porter told a Morrow Police Department officer about his enlightenment, the cop reported that, “I then explained the obvious problem with his third eye being opened in public.” While acknowledging that his education career would be damaged by the bust, Porter said that he still desired to teach, except “on a new level, with hands in the earth, gathering the essence and learning how to love one another and fully appreciate the spiritual realm.”

Police reported that Porter had “several books in his belongings that appeared to be on topics such as spirituality and transcendental meditation.” 

According to cops, fellow teachers reported that Porter “did not drink sodas or other canned beverages and maintained a strict vegan diet” and was not known to take drugs or drink alcohol. “However on the date in question they noticed that he was drinking a coke and had gone to taco bell to get tacos for lunch,” reported Officer Khari Reed.

It is unknown what role, if any, the Mexican delicacy may have played in Porter’s ill-advised decision to unveil his third eye, though Reed did note that the teacher “had recently learned that his employment contract would not be renewed.” Reed also reported that Porter had previously been “diagnosed schizophrenic,” though the school’s principal told cops the educator had never exhibited “strange behavior.” (2 pages)

This has to go down as one of the best days news days in recent history! First OBL is KIA then this story. Admittedly it's not nice to laugh at mentally ill people, but you gotta hand it to him, it is funny. And then to top it off with all the responses I'm splittin a gut laughing! Thanks Again!
Nobody noticed his round lips?
Yeah...this guy and Donald Trump must use the same type of straws or they both shared a jail cell with the same bully
When I saw this headline, I was hoping it was a female teacher and that there was footage. Oh well, darn.
Must have been under tremendous pressure, where was school management in all of this?
This man is suffering from a mental illness. This isn't funny.
Agreed this is in bad taste - another news story is saying he was "diagnosed" schizophrenic. Again, what was school management doing? They should have been keeping closer tabs on someone like that. Not saying he can't be a good teacher, just needs proper management.
It's ok. There is no actual meat in Taco Bell tacos anyways...
To show his third eye, he would have to bend over.
Dang it, that was what I was going to say.
.
Well, it's obviously something in the Verde taco sauce. I knew there was something funny about it.
Bush made him do it.
There`s a time and place that everybody decides to get naked,but normal people DO NOT get naked at a elementary school,kidnap,molest or take a gun and shoot a bunch of children and just because somebody votes for Obama does`nt make people do stuff like this!Most of you LAME bloggers with twisted versions of why this happend only makes us wonder whats really going on in your closets,or maybe this is your brother from another mother.Quit smoking that PCP with your step daddy before you end up like this fool!
This guy is definitely a democrat,he fits the profile, just like those monkeys in Reverend Wright's so called church. Obama was one of those monkey disciples.
Curious. What does president Obama, and party affiliations have to with this article?? I think you are just as far out there as this nut who is running around the school naked!!
Just keep saying the word 'monkey' but your pathetic life still exists, doesn't it? Ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!
A tea bagger in seach of a tea baggee
Kind of strange that you would say that. Let's go through the checklist. He's an African-American, and roughly 95% of them voted for Obama. Then we factor in his being a teacher. Statistics for how teachers voted are a bit sketchy, but considering most are union, and the unions are staunchly pro-Democrat, the odds favor this guy voting Democrat as well. Then there's his vegan, new-age philosophy ... no, I just can't see many tea-baggers going for that. I'll have to say this guy most definitely voted for Obama. Then again, I also think his party affiliation is a non-issue in his case. He's a guy who got laid off and had a schizophrenic episode. Even worse, he had Taco Bell for lunch! It's enough to drive anyone of any party affiliation over the edge!
Lazy worthless democrat, get a job and quit sucking off of us hard working honest conservatives.
Hard-working at what? What exactly do you do, Cletus? No really. I know rightwing people who own small businesses. Basically it means they pick up a bunch of illegals from Home Depot, pay them $10 an hour, get some jobs (landscaping, painting, roofing) and sit on their pasty fat-laden arses all day beating off on Internet porn and posting comments about yours about being sooooo hard-working. LOL! Yeah, right! On the off-chance that you ARE hard-working, you are just another sheeple making other people rich while you do your slave labor.
Pan-sexual freak
I am a Mechatronics Engineer if you know what that is. You would have no idea on how hard it is to start a small business from scratch. All you can do is put down those who do. Get a job ***.
It's obvious that Porter suffers from a mental illness. It's called liberalism. You'd think that teachers would have to be scrutinized and tested for mental illness, but too many educators, nowadays suffer from the same disease and it's become the norm. You have to be crazy, yourself to send your children to public schools where they're indoctrinated into liberalism and turned against their parents (especially conservative parents). No doubt, Porter is gay, too.
Hmmmmm Third Eye? In his case it must be his butthole .....
&@#^^ !, I was going to use that. Must be a transendental thought...
Guy has the blank stare of a serial killer...
Another Glenn Beck disciple.
More like a obama disciple
What he says makes a lot of sense. However, he should take his naked strolls out of the elementary schools and into another venue. The floor of the US Congress would be good.
Hes not a schizo,hes just been smoking that PCP!
I wonder if Spanky's "Third Eye" was looking up or down!!
"HOT NUTS!...GET YER HOT NUTS HERE!...SAY G'NIGHT, DICK!"
"Working Liberal" I'll take a Big mac, Fries and coke or should I order some sort of frilly coffee? The problem is that the dude is obviously nuts, he's a vegan, that's proof right there this guy is a raging lunatic.
You dont have to have a dead-end job to be liberal. I agree he has his issues (particularly on this day) he needs to work on. I also agree being a vegan is a crazy person decision. As you know, most users like to blame the party affliation on this site. For instance, when an article involving incest is posted I like to mention that they vote red.
Liberals... Thats right, I beat you to it. Now go back to the birth certificate.
Working at what, getting more well-fare?
Poor uneducated thing can't even spell a simple word like WELFARE??? No wonder you are so bitter. You have been taught your whole life that White people are superior to people of color (even though most of the people in your family and surroundings are under-educated) and now a Black man is in the White House who went to Harvard and has a very intelligent, well-educated BLACK wife. Mwah, bytch!!!!!
What is this Mwah Bytch did you just get done sucking yourself off? Get a job pan-sexual freak.
If you can not recognize how pathetic of a person you are, then someone must show you, your mother certainly didn't. How do know what race I am. There are many Black conservatives that feel the same way as I. These Black conservatives don't need affirmative action to get ahead in life. Obama did, he admitted so. As far as educated, I graduated with honors (Magna cum Laude) as a Mechatronics engineer, if you know what that is. You are nothing but a getto fabulous entitlement suck-up.
It's very funny how Mr. Magna cum Laude can't spell. I am also an engineer and I sure know how to spell welfare and ghetto. If you're going to act smart, maybe you should learn to spell first. Instead your arguments are flawed with ridiculous insults. So smart... yet you don't even know how to debate.
What's the matter, Working Liberal? Feeling guilty, so you tried to head us off the path?
Keepin' it real compared to what.
I used to work with Schizophrenics and other types of psychiatric patients, and can say that the loss of his job could easily trigger a psychotic break. He needs help, not prison, and certainly not this type of media exposure (pun sort of intended)... Its clear that his actions were bizarre and potentially harmful, but don't think there was any malignancy here. It would be in good taste to take this posting down TSG...
No malignancy here? Good grief! He's a teacher with vulnerable children as a captive audience! As a teacher, he's spreading a 'cancer' that our children don't deserve. Enough of the political correctness baloney that gives leftist deviants civil rights and concentrate on educating our children the right way.
I never thought of it as a "third eye" I always thought of it as a head with no brains...
Mine has a brain, only because it is blind.
Feel sorry for the poor guy walking around butt naked. Hallucination from all that Mexican food at Taco Bell sent him over the edge. Poor guy let's just blame his bad behavior on tacos and coca cola and leave it at that.
"One Eyed Waldo" and the twins?? He got it a little wrong eh? maybe his anatomy lesson got him confused between a third eye and his third leg?
Leaving out only "The accused has been diagnosed schizophrenic in 2004 in NY." from that court filing kinda cheapens a good laugh somehow TSG.
