Parent arrested for speaking too long at school board meeting

Posted: Updated:
A parent in New Hampshire was arrested at a school board meeting for violating the time limit set on discussions.

William Baer was charged with disorderly conduct when police said he did not leave a school board meeting after being asked, according to the YouTube description provided by WMUR-TV.

Parents were apparently upset one of the reading materials assigned to their high school-aged children was inappropriate. School officials say the book 'Nineteen Minutes' by Jodi Piccoult contains important themes about a school shooting. However, the book also contains a graphic description of a sexual encounter between two teens, which parents say they were unaware of until the book was already handed out to students.

    The Trio Animal Foundation in Chicago has been busy with their fair share of animal abuse cases. Recently, workers say they retrieved a terribly matted and urine soaked dog from an open access shelter. According to the workers, the dog’s fur was so terribly groomed; they were unsure which side was the face at first.
