An Alabama teacher used assassinating President Obama as a way to teach his students angles. The Secret Service spoke with the math instructor but didn’t pursue anything beyond that.

The teacher was appar­ently teaching his geometry students about parallel lines and angles, officials said. He used the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama.

“He was talking about angles and said, ‘If you’re in this building, you would need to take this angle to shoot the president,’ ” said Joseph Brown, a senior in the geometry class.

Superintendent Phil Hammonds says there are no plans to fire the teacher.

“We are going to have a long conversation with him about what’s appropriate,” Hammonds said. “It was extremely poor judgment on his part, and a poor choice of words.”
