We Don’t Need Vigilantes at School Board Meetings

The Legal Brief column by Joan Korb in the Sept. 17-24 issue of the Pulse, “Vigilantes in America,” was spot on. Her account of vigilantism in America was very thorough, and I learned many interesting facts.

It seems so un-American to see school-board meetings in our state and country facing people who interrupt the meetings and actually pose a physical threat to those in attendance. The people who serve on school boards are the true patriots in this situation and deserve to be treated better!

The public is encouraged to attend these meetings, but when attending, they should observe proper decorum. Our school districts, teachers, students and other elected officials deserve that minimum amount of respect.
