A defiant anti-masker was dragged out of a South Dakota school board meeting by police for refusing to wear a face covering, according to footage shared on social media.
The man, identified as Reed Bender, was asked repeatedly to wear a mask at the Mitchell Board of Education meeting Monday before cops were called to the scene, local newspaper the Mitchell Republic reported.
Video shared on Facebook shows an officer explaining to Bender that he is in violation of a district-wide policy that requires wearing masks on school property — and says he doesn’t want to have to forcibly remove him from the building. . .
The father of two then tells the two Mitchell Police Division officers he will not leave willingly — and calls the incident “disgusting.”
“Force me out. You’re going to have to drag me out,” he says, according to the footage.
