A New Hampshire father was arrested for protesting the inclusion of a book in school curriculum that graphically describes sex between minors.

William Baer, who showed up at a school board meeting to voice his opinion on the literature, was arrested and taken away in handcuffs after he went over his allotted 2 minutes to speak.

Baer was upset that the book had been pushed into his 9th grade daughter’s hands and was required reading in order to pass the class.

In years past, the school would have provided the children a permission slip to take home to their parents to make sure they could read the book. This year, no such permission slip was given and children were provided the material without their parent’s knowledge or consent.

Baer challenged that the book should not be part of the school’s curriculum and took part in a dialogue with another parent who actually endorsed the reading of the book.

As WND reported:

Baer spoke beyond the time limit and sat down but then exchanged words with another parent who approved of the book.

“So what is the remedy here?” Baer asked.

The board said it would not take questions on the matter.

“Sir, would you please be respectful of the other people?” a school board member responded.

“Like you’re respectful of my daughter, right? And my children?” he countered.

“Please, be quiet,” admonished the board member.

A police officer then arrived at the scene, instructing Baer to leave with him.

“You are going to arrest me because I violated the two-minute rule?” the father said. “I guess you are going to have to arrest me.”

Baer was not alone in his protest of the book.

Several other parents in the community also felt that the book should not have been required reading.

Though others present at the meeting were able to voice their displeasure about the reading material, none were arrested like Baer for speaking past their time limit.

Baer was given a ticket for disorderly conduct.
