A group of parents demanded an end to a mask mandate in Florida school district, and one father was escorted out by police.

The Sarasota County Schools requires students to wear face coverings in the classroom to prevent the spread of coronavirus, but a group of parents plans to sue the school board over the mandate, reported WFLA-TV.

“We’re moms, we’re dads, we’re grandparents, and we just want a choice, and we’re not getting a choice,” said Ashley Cote, a founding member of the group Concerned Parents of Sarasota Schools. “It’s a mask, it’s my child, it’s other’s people’s children — it’s not their children.”

Michael Zarzano confronted school board members over the policy, and his microphone was cut off within seconds as he continued to shout that the mandate violated his constitutional rights.

“You cannot force me to breathe carbon dioxide, lady,” Zarzano said. “I am to breathe oxygen. I want to breathe oxygen. I can’t cover my mouth and my nose.”

Board chair Jane Goodwin ordered Zarzano removed from the meeting, and he continued his rant as officers escorted him from the meeting room.

“You have been warned!” Zarzano shouted. “You have been served! Tyranny in Sarasota County!”

The board voted 3-2 to keep the mandate in place for now, despite dozens of parents packing into the room to protest.

Critics slam Alan Dershowitz after he fights to defend his own questionable reputation

Published

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
