ALTON, N.H. (AP) — Some residents in the New Hampshire town of Alton are upset that a school board member displayed a knife during a meeting in which members were discussing the district's weapons policy.
Video of the Feb. 21 meeting shows school board member Stephen Miller holding up the knife for less than 30 seconds.
Alton resident Karl Ingoldsby says there's always discussion and discourse in meetings, but there should never be a weapon involved.
Miller displayed the knife while arguing against allowing such weapons on campus.
Board chairman Jeff St. Cyr told Miller to keep the knife in his pocket.
