Fox News To Interview William Baer, Father Arrested In New Hampshire for Going Over Two Minute Rule In School Board Meeting.Submitted by barracuda_trader on Wed, 05/07/2014 - 09:03
William Baer became furious when he learned that his daughter had been assigned the book. He said the school not only failed to notify parents, but they also failed to offer parents a chance to opt their kids out of reading the book.
“I was shocked when I read the passage, and not much shocks me anymore,” Baer told EAGNews.org. “My wife was stunned by the increasingly graphic nature of the sexual content of the scene and the imagery it evoked.”
Baer, who is an attorney, put it in perspective. He said if someone had been handing those passages to students off campus, they might have been arrested.
Ironically, it was Baer who got arrested – at a school board meeting to address the controversy.
Baer went beyond his allotted two minutes and then got into an argument with a parent who supported the book.
Baer was charged with disorderly conduct.
“’Yeah,’ he groaned, and he pushed her thighs apart. And then suddenly Matt was inside her, pumping her so hard that she scooted backward on the carpet, burning the backs of her legs.”
That’s an excerpt from “Nineteen Minutes,” a novel that 14-year-old English students have been assigned to read at the local high school. It’s a story that was first reported by EAGnews.org, the website of the Education Action Group Foundation.
