A California teacher was caught yelling at her students on camera due to parents’ complaints about the way she’s running her virtual lessons.

In a video shared on Facebook and later posted on Twitter, San Marcos High School teacher Alissa Piro is heard daring parents to “come at me” and said she was “sick” of them telling her how to do her job.

“If your parent wants to talk to me about their profession and their opinion on their profession, I would love to hear that,” Piro is heard saying in the video.

“However, if your parent wants to come talk to me about how I’m not doing a good enough job in distance learning based on what you need as an individual? Just dare them to come at me.”

“Because I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job.”

“I have never once gone to a doctor’s appointment and tried to tell my medical health provider how to treat me,” she continues.

“You know why, ’cause I know nothing about that. I didn’t get my degree in medicine.”

She then apologizes, saying, “I am going off, sorry. This is my go off period.”

Piro went on to tell one student there’s no need for a “white student union” because whites already “get everything.”

According to Fox News, Piro was referring to an ongoing lawsuit launched by a group of California parents against Gov. Gavin Newsom and six California school districts seeking to end virtual learning and return to in-person instruction.

San Marcos school district recently switched from virtual learning to a hybrid model, where students return to the classroom two days a week. The school union reportedly voted to keep the hybrid model for the rest of the school year, angering parents who have pushed for a return to in-person learning.

Fox News reported that that school’s principal, Adam Dawson, called Piro’s behavior “inexcusable” and vowed to address it.

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts




After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
