School board member shows knife at meeting
ALTON, N.H. (WHDH) -- Residents in Alton, New Hampshire are upset that a school board member showed a knife during a meeting in which members were discussing the district's weapons policy.
Video of the Feb. 21 meeting shows Stephen Miller showing a knife to prove a point about a policy he wants changed.
“I took out of my briefcase for a moment and it was a folding knife. It has a 3.5 inch blade and I held it up and I showed them and I said, ‘This is what’s allowed on elementary school campus,’” Miller said. “I had it out possibly 10m 15 seconds. So I just folded it and put it back.”
Board chairman Jeff St. Cyr told Miller to keep the knife in his pocket.
According to Miller, he is the only one out of the five board members who wants to see the law changed.
