Video shows New York father was forcibly tossed away from school board meeting after refusing to wear face mask

314

A New York man was forcibly thrown away from a school board meeting after he refused to wear a mask this week.

Dave Calus was attending a school board meeting in Webster on Tuesday when 20 minutes after the beginning of the meeting a security came up to him and asked him to put a face mask.

When Calus refused to do so, the security officer insisted that the man “need” to put a face covering before dragging the chair Calus was sitting towards the back of the room. The father of two then was pushed out of a back door.

The incident was caught on camera.

“What are you doing?!” the woman filming the video yells. “What are you doing?! Holy crap. Holy crap.”

“That is assault. That is assault.” the woman says.

“Do you put your hands on our children, too?” another lady asks the guard.

The man, who has one son in high school and another in college, claims the incident was unprovoked.

“I went into the building without a mask on. I signed in and they said ‘you need to wear a mask,’ he said on the podcast. “I said ‘thank you.’”

“I signed in, they handed me a mask – I did not put the mask on – and I put it in my pocket.”

The incident if under the investigation by the Webster Police department.

“The individual … was asked to put his mask on three times and he refused. He was then asked to leave the meeting and refused to do so, resulting in Webster CSD security physically removing the individual from the meeting,” the statement said.

“We understand that individuals have strong feelings about masking. We hear those concerns and are continuing to monitor the rapid changes in this ongoing pandemic. This week, the Monroe County Council of School Superintendents wrote a letter to Governor Kathy Hochul advocating for guidance and guidelines regarding an exit strategy for masking and other mitigation strategies.”
