This isn't Breaking Bad, dude, with that background you're going to screw this up sooner rather than later:

CNN
While he was working as "dean of academy" at English High, Harrison was also running a marijuana distribution enterprise, according to Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney, David Bradley. At an arraignment hearing Thursday, Bradley said the 55-year-old now-former dean shot a 17-year-old student he had allegedly hired to sell marijuana. (snip)

Bradley said in a news release that the two got into a dispute after leaving Harrison's home Tuesday evening. They were walking along a street when Harrison then "produced a handgun, pointed it at the back of the victim's head and fired," Bradley said in a news release.

The incident was captured on surveillance footage, but the police have not released it.

The teen, who has not been named by police yet, was shot behind the right ear, according to a police report. He is expected to survive his injuries, Bradley's release said.

Harrison had worked in various positions with the Boston Public Schools since 2010. He had been "dean of academy" at English High School since January 5, where "he provided services, like finding housing for homeless students or social services or disciplinary alternatives to suspension," said Denise Snyder, a representative for Boston Public Schools. His employment has been "terminated effective immediately," Snyder said. (snip)

Groover said Harrison was already an ordained Baptist minister when he came to the Charles Street AME Church. He recalled Harrison usually attended services alone, but he "got along with everyone." (snip)

A not guilty plea was automatically entered on Harrison's behalf. He posted $250,000 bail and is under house arrest, according to police documents. He has been ordered to "stay away and have no contact with the victim" and wear a GPS monitor, the DA's release said.

Some people are awfully successful at hiding terrible things behind a smokescreen of good deeds. Until they bounce a bullet off of a 17 year old's skull on camera.

Oh yes, it was the war on drugs that caused him to attempt murder. And ISIS militants just need good jobs.

What a classy dude. Wonder why he bothered to go to church? Just to keep up appearances?

Boston's ABC affiliate WCVB interviewed Harrison in 2008, when he was running an outreach group that tried to keep young people away from guns.

Religion is a cash cow in those communities.

Keep folks poor as dirt and dumb as shit, as long as they fork over their cut to the community organizer minister and keep prayin' that Obama ups their EBT allotment.

Harrison, who prosecutors said leads substance abuse and anger management programs at the Jamaica Plain high school, allegedly has a mural of Latin King members in his home and shared a matching tattoo with two other men arraigned in connection with the shooting.

Harrison’s son Jeremy is currently under indictment for shooting his girlfriend in the head in 2013. The unlawfully owned firearm went off accidentally while he was cleaning it, Harrison explained at the time.
