Security guards at a school in Webster, New York, forcibly removed a man not wearing a mask from a school board meeting this week, according to a video posted online.
In the video, posted to Facebook Tuesday by the account ROC for Educational Freedom Public Page, a security guard can be seen approaching an unmasked man sitting quietly in the back row of the meeting room while someone is speaking up front.
The two men briefly exchange words, though it's not clear what is said, and then the guard proceeds to drag the man toward the back of the room by pulling on the back of his chair. When that doesn't work, the guard grabs the man's jacket collar and pulls on that, eventually pulling the jacket off of the man's back.
At that point, the man turns around to complain as the woman recording the video shouts, "What are you doing?! What are you doing?! Holy crap. Holy crap."
Another woman can be heard exclaiming, "Is this how you treat our children, too? Do you put your hands on the children like that, too?"
When the man attempts to sit back down in his chair, the masked security guard reaches for the chair's base and tips it over until the man is forced out of the seat. Other security guards can then be seen taking hold of the man and shoving him out of the meeting room.
As the man is removed, a police officer appears to calmly follow after the group toward the back exit.
The incident was first reported by the Daily Wire.

ROC for Educational Freedom Public Page claimed in the caption of its post that the man was a father in the community, though that information has not been confirmed. At this point, it remains unclear as to whether or not the incident was genuine or staged.
TheBlaze attempted to reach Webster Central School District for more information on the alleged incident,but the district has yet to respond. This article will be updated if and when the district provides a statement.
New York Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday an end to mask mandates for indoor gatherings; however, the state leader said mask requirements would remain in place for schools, at least for the time being.
