Tad Cummins’ personnel file obtained through open records request

Tad Cummins’ personnel file obtained through open records request

The Maury County School System has released the personnel file for its former teacher Tad Cummins, who is accused of running away with a 15-year-old female student of his.

Tennessee Watchdog obtained the file through an open records request via Tennessee’s Public Records Act.

According to the Columbia Daily Herald, “Cummins has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual expolitation of a minor.”

In the 57 page file, which you can read by clicking here, Cummins writes that he holds 65 song copyrights. He also describes his time as an interim youth pastor, how he didn’t originally think teaching was his destiny, and how he mentored troubled teenage boys at a wilderness boot camp.

The file also includes a March 14 letter from Superintendent Christopher J. Marczak informing Cummins that he is terminated from his job.

    Oh yeah, this guy is real ‘scary’. The more they learn, the more scared they are. Remember in English 101 and supporting statements after statement of fact is made? Never with this story. What is so scary? Where is the dangerous past of this guy? Where is the video of him taking her? The only thing I see is a fat crisis actor saying she’s his wife. These are the worst actors! And now more interviews with the family. The things they say don’t even fit the situation.

    I know when I kidnap someone I let them walk behind me (Walmart) so that I have my eyes in the back of my head on them at all times. I would hate from them to run off. Sure is the “Best” place to have a kidnapped victim walk. People are truly this stupid to buy this nonsense. Seriously? More Fake News by the MSM to push some agenda which we will learn of after this ruse is over. Maybe to push some new draconian law in schools? Oh…and inapproriate conduct at the school, but as with all shooting, there is never ONE lawsuit against the negligence which had a role in the outcome? A guy sneaks a rifle and loads of ammo post the front door of Orlando Night club, but no law suits? Whatever. Check out the crisis actors in that one! Awful. Kidnapping doesn’t happen to the willing.

    The sister claims she woke her to say if I’m not back by 6pm to call the police? So no other dialogue was reported. She didn’t bother to say notify mom and dad? She willingly walked into a bad situation? And the situation is with a teacher that she knew…was caught smooching, and who was then later seen walking behind him in a calm non distressed manner? Really? This whole thing stinks to high heaven of MSM nonsense, or it is completely staged. IF.. this is real…then she probably is looking to escape a troubled family full of dysfunction and he sees himself helping her out and getting her out of there. Cameras all around the country, but yet they can’t locate them? Whatever. We live in a police state and they have no footage except that gas station and now the walmart?

    TBI hotline claims that can’t give out the information to the public which states why this guy is dangerous. Really? Since when? What POSSIBLY could they not tell the public? It’s all a ruse.

    Also, I checked on Spokeo and other sites that you and everyone else shows up on, and none of the names involved like him or her, or wifey show up. Just another hole of many in this story. Youtube Aurora shooting man forgets he was shot injury. SMH Then look into crisis actors. Then look into all the “shootings”. We are being played by fake news with an agenda to push. Look around you, the world that you see and live every day is is completely different than what they show us and want us to believe. They want us not to trust each other, to fight with each other, to break our spirits… The MEDIA is your enemy, and those who pull their strings.
