    Tennessee Teacher Tad Cummins Arrested in California, Teen Elizabeth Thomas Safe

    Article is here.

    The 50-year-old Tennessee man accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old former student was arrested in Northern California — and the teenage girl was recovered safely after she was missing for more than a month, authorities said Thursday.

    Tad Cummins, a former high school teacher in rural Tennessee, was nabbed in California after disappearing with Elizabeth Thomas on March 13, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a post on Twitter. The TBI said Thomas was recovered safely.

    The two were discovered Thursday morning "at a commune" in Cecilville, California, the TBI later said in a statement. Siskiyou County authorities first discovered the Nissan Rogue used by Cummins early Thursday, and then later located the pair, according to the statement.
    Looks like they finally got the creep. Hopefully this manipulative child predator gets locked up for a good while. I can't imagine how the girl's doing; what her state of mind is like at the moment.

    Thoughts?

    If the stories are true about her mom beating/abusing her and her siblings, she probably doesn't have a different attitude than when all this started.

    My understanding was that her home life was ****. Hopefully, she won't be going "home".

    I'm so glad that she was found safe. What a sordid story this was. So many lives ruined, including his family's. I hear his wife filed for divorce in March.

    Send him to jail and let his fellow inmates neuter him.

    There will now commence a lot of coaching connected to bribes to get her to say bad things about the guy...which almost always work, eventually. She will be kept away from the media till she is ready to say the "right" things. We cant have our victims contradicting victim culture, Oh No.

    At some point, this practice of denunciation being insuperable and due process just an irritant and a useless antiquity, like an appendix — as it has been in the Weinstein and Moore cases — will have to stop, if the U.S. wishes to retain any credibility as a society of laws<<<<<<Conrad Black

    She is a victim. She's 15. He's 50.
