A Tennessee elementary school teacher, Alissa McCommon, is facing serious charges of rape and harassment in a case that has taken a disturbing turn.
Local reports suggest that McCommon, a fourth-grade teacher, allegedly implied that she might be pregnant with the child of the boy she is accused of raping when he was just 12 years old. This shocking revelation emerged during a phone call played in court.
According to reports from Fox News, in the call, McCommon can be heard saying, “I’m going to raise this baby. I can do this,” raising questions about the disturbing nature of her alleged relationship with the victim. McCommon, who hails from Covington, was initially arrested on September 8 and charged with the rape of a child.
Furthermore, she was released on a $250,000 bond but was subsequently rearrested on September 28, facing additional charges of coercing, harassing, and stalking the victim.
A judge revoked McCommon’s second bond after authorities discovered that she violated the terms of her release by contacting the victim using a previously undisclosed phone number.
Covington Police Chief Donna Turner expressed concern about McCommon’s actions, stating that they were not only appalling but also raised concerns about potential violations of her bond conditions. She added that the police were investigating further to determine if others may have been contacted by McCommon.
In the messages she sent to the victim, McCommon displayed fear and desperation, writing, “I’m just really scared. I don’t even know if it’s you or not … I will never text you again. You will never hear from me again, just please don’t say anything.” She also pleaded with the victim to delete her number, expressing regret and concern about getting into trouble.
In September, McCommon reportedly admitted to “communicating inappropriately with former students” through online video games and social media apps. She allegedly sent inappropriate photographs and requested sexual relationships with the victims.
The Covington Police Department began investigating McCommon after receiving information from the Department of Children Services regarding her alleged sexual contact with a teenage male student.
Authorities clarified that there is no evidence suggesting McCommon’s alleged crimes occurred on school grounds. The police are urging any potential additional victims to come forward. McCommon was suspended without pay on August 24 when a parent brought forth allegations of misconduct against her.
As this disturbing case unfolds, McCommon’s attorney has not yet issued a statement. Police are encouraging anyone with concerns that their child may have been victimized by McCommon to contact the Covington Police Department or the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office CID.
Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year
The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.
According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.
ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.
Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries.
Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.
Surprisingly, ADN reports:
A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.
Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
