More Police nonsense. Father arrested for Speaking Against Sexually Explicit Book

What the??? He violated the 2 minute rule.

You can jump to around 5:00 in the video.




Gilford, NH- A father of a high school student was arrested at a school board meeting Monday night after protesting the school’s sexually explicit required reading assigned to his 9th grade daughter at Gilford High School.

The book in question, ”Nineteen Minutes” by author Jodi Picoult, is about a school shooting taking place in a fictitious New Hampshire town, and it contains themes of student violence, bullying, and sexual aggression. There is one particularly provocative and graphic depiction of violent, drunken sex between two teens in the story on page 313. Click here to read the passage (warning: graphic language and explicit sexual content).

William Baer came to the meeting to voice his opposition to the school’s failure to send home notification alerting parents of the graphic content. “I’m outraged that Gilford High School would require my daughter to read this kind of material,” Baer told the Laconia Daily Sun.

Josh Youssef, a friend of Baer, spoke with Benswann.com about what preceded the school board meeting and Baer’s arrest. Youssef was at Baer’s home when they were talking about a reading assignment given to Baer’s daughter. Youssef opened the book and came across page 313, and they were shocked by the graphic description of rough sex. “His jaw dropped,” Youseff told Benswann.com.

Baer then contacted Principal Peter Sawyer of Gilford High School last Wednesday to arrange a meeting, but was told by Sawyer it would not be possible to meet before the weekend. Baer attended Monday’s meeting to make his concerns known to the school board. There was a police officer present at the meeting, Gilford Lt. James Leach. Youssef said that he had been told by other parents that it’s not common for police to be present at Gilford school board meetings.

The school board meeting allowed for public comment only; no discussion, questions or speaking more than once was permitted.

After Baer spoke for two minutes- the maximum speaking time dictated by the school board- another parent, Joe Wernig, spoke in support of the book’s content. Baer responded to Wernig’s comments, and it was then that he was asked to leave by Leach. When Baer asked if he was going to be arrested, he was escorted from the meeting by Leach and handcuffed before being placed in a police cruiser. After Baer’s arrest, Lt. Leach was not replaced by another officer for the duration of the meeting.



Baer was not the only angry parent at the school board meeting. Another parent, Sarah Carrigan, said that she was “utterly appalled that this was an ‘oversight’”. Baer’s wife, Barbara Baer, shares her husband’s frustration. “They can discuss this some other way,” she said. “They don’t need that kind of imagery.”

“Nineteen Minutes” has been part of Gilford’s 9th grade AP English curriculum since 2007 when it was published. The school issued a statement that concluded the district “will take immediate action to revise these policies to include notification that requires parents to accept controversial material, rather than opt out.” The school sent out a notice stating that the book assigned “depicts high school relationships, some of which are unhealthy.”

Baer told Benswann.com that the school’s notice was only sent out after he went to the principal to discuss it, and that the notice failed to disclose the graphic passage in the book. “I can’t believe the school requires this as reading material,” he said. “There’s no reason to expect this kind of thing.”

While some parents say that this book opens up critical dialogue between parents and their children, Baer noted that when he asked Sawyer to discuss the passage in context with the rest of the book, Sawyer said he was uncomfortable doing so.

In the extended video below, given to Benswann.com by Youssef, Baer is shown being arrested after speaking out. Youssef believes, and the video shows, at minute 5:05 the superintendent signalling Lt. Leach to confront Baer to remove him from the building.

Teenaged psychology is a weird subject.

First, I'd like to state that there isn't a "right" answer. What works for one child may not work for another. Growing up, my mother was about as lax as could be. She was more of a friend than an authority figure. I waited until I was 18 to have sex (just because I felt that was the smart thing to do) and am now about to be 25 with no life ruiners-er, I mean kids. Meanwhile, in the same household, my little sister got pregnant at 17.

Based on my experience, I'd be inclined to not shelter my children from things like sex, drugs and violence but talk as openly as I could with them about those things and the dangers involved.

Still didn't quite get it.

The article is poorly worded, but it seems that the district "will take immediate action to revise these policies to include notification that requires parents to accept controversial material, rather than opt out.”

When did they issue this statement about taking immediate action? Unknown

The policy apparently requires/required parents to accept controversial information, rather than opt out. So he did not have the opportunity to opt out.

Frankly it's bad journalism and bad writing, since we can't tell what the policy was at any specific time or know what the policy is now.

If they did have a policy in place that let parents opt out, I doubt this would be a story.

Perhaps you should because the only people claiming that there wasn't a notice beforehand were "outraged" parents.

I love it.

No way I would let my kids read that filth.


Kids, shut your mouths and go back to playing COD/GTA (any other mature rated game with sex or extreme violence) and then let them watch game of thrones.

But a book, oh noes.

No, the previous policy was an opt out policy. The new one requires the parent to accept controversial information.

He was escorted out for not following rules, him contineousely disobeying the officer to get up and leave is why he was arrested.

And I have a feeling the reading list went out at the start of the year. Some parents just like to ignore those things until someone else tells them about it personally. How the **** do you know how to turn to the exact page to be offended by? Second thought, they can all **** off. 2007 is how long it has been required. Maybe pay attention to your kids.

I am sure the school board is taking immediate action and not rejecting the claims that the parents did not know the material for the fun of it.
