TUSD board considers policy change following confrontation

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A confrontational man at this week's TUSD board meeting has some members wondering if a change in policy is in order.

 

"La Raza studies makes it clear Chicanos want to have war, civil war," said a man during Tuesday night's TUSD School Board meeting.

The man showed up with a pocket knife and lied to security at the door.

But they allowed him to leave the knife in the car and come back into the meeting.  He then made board member Adelita Grijalva uncomfortable by singling her out during a rant.

According to TUSD's legal team, the board has the jurisdiction to change its policy to say anyone who brings a weapon to a meeting will not be allowed in, even if they leave the weapon in their car.
