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.

The Tate Brothers and Associates Face Human Trafficking Charges in Romania

In a recent development, the Tate brothers, Andrew and Tristan, along with two associates, find themselves at the center of a high-profile case involving human trafficking allegations.

The charges leveled against them indicate the formation of an organized criminal group in 2021 with the intent to carry out human trafficking operations not only in Romania but also in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to the BBC.

The investigation, which led to their arrest in December last year, has culminated in an indictment filed with the Bucharest court. According to the indictment, the Tate brothers are accused of luring their victims with false promises of love and marriage. Seven individuals have been identified as alleged victims, who were later coerced and subjected to a harrowing ordeal.

Prosecutors contend that the victims were taken to locations in Ilfov county, Romania, where they faced constant surveillance, intimidation, and control. The defendants allegedly forced the victims into debt and coerced them into participating in pornographic activities, with the explicit material subsequently shared on social media platforms. Shockingly, one of the defendants is accused of raping a woman on two occasions in March 2022, further amplifying the gravity of the charges.

While the trial is not expected to commence immediately, as a Romanian judge is granted 60 days to inspect the case files, it is anticipated to be a protracted legal battle. The complexity of the case and the severity of the charges will undoubtedly result in a lengthy trial process, with several years potentially passing before a verdict is reached.

Representatives for the Tate brothers released a statement acknowledging the unsurprising nature of the news but maintaining their belief in their innocence.

As reported by the BBC, the Tate brothers media team stared, “While this news is undoubtedly predictable, we embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation.”

They expressed their eagerness to present a comprehensive body of evidence meticulously collected over time, which they believe will substantiate their claims of innocence and restore their tarnished reputation.

However, it should be noted that additional charges, such as money laundering and trafficking of minors, are still under investigation. If evidence is uncovered to support these allegations, a separate indictment could be filed, further complicating the legal proceedings for the defendants.

Andrew Tate, who gained notoriety through his participation in the reality television show Big Brother, has a controversial past, having been removed from the show in 2016 following a video that appeared to depict him assaulting a woman.

Despite subsequent bans on social media platforms due to his contentious statements, he has managed to amass a following, particularly among young men, by promoting an ostentatious and hyper-masculine lifestyle.

As the case unfolds, public attention will undoubtedly be drawn to the trial, with many eagerly awaiting the outcome and hoping for justice to be served for the alleged victims. The complex web of charges and the high-profile nature of the defendants ensure that this trial will be closely monitored and scrutinized by the media and the public alike.
