Sunday school teacher arrested after showing up to school board meeting without mask
A Sunday School teacher was arrested for disorderly conduct in New Hampshire after showing up to a school board meeting without a mask.
“You are violating my rights right now. You are remiss,” Kate Bossi told police as she was arrested and escorted out of the school board meeting.
“Come on, Sgt. Porter. You know this is wrong what they’re doing to our kids,” another man shouted.
Bossi and her daughter, Jackie Wydola, planned to address the mask policy and its effects on children at the meeting. Which was planned to be held in person at the schools Performing Arts Center, but board Chairwoman Kimberly Farah canceled it following Bossi’s arrest. Farah rescheduled the meeting to be held remotely.
“Are you seriously doing this, you guys? This is law enforcement. You’re not enforcing laws. You’re enforcing policy. That doesn’t matter,” Wydola told officers.
Bossi’s Sunday School students were reportedly in attendance and cried as police escorted her out. “Come on, Sgt. Porter. You know this is wrong what they’re doing to our kids,” one man shouted.
“Kids are going to be going to the prom in two days. It would be nice to have them be able to enjoy it without a mask. You know? They all got screwed last year,” one school board member said.
Mask mandates have become a contentious political issue after nearly a year of various coronavirus restrictions placed on Americans. Several states have since banned mask mandates, including Texas, which will institute a ban on mask mandates in public schools beginning June 5.
Dr. Anthony Fauci recently admitted that his own mask-wearing after vaccination was to not send “mixed signals,” rather than being based on scientific evidence that it was necessary to stop the spread of the virus.
