Scott Smith, a 48-year-old plumber according to the Daily Mail, instructed host Laura Ingraham he went to the preliminary June assembly not for any political cause however as a result of he had seen “all this crazy stuff on TV” and was involved after his daughter had been assaulted.

“I am good with gay people and cross-gender people – Anybody who wants to be a good American, I am good with – I went there to find out why our children were not safe,” he stated. “The next thing I know, another parent-activist approached my wife and starting antagonizing her, and I turned around and said stop.”

Smith stated he tried to inform the lady how his daughter was assaulted in the restroom at Stone Bridge High School, however the girl continued:

“She looked me dead in the face and said ‘that’s not what happened’ – That struck me – how do you know what happened, you don’t even know me.”

“I was just shocked. And horrified. I do want to say, though, we support our first responders and our law enforcement. This didn’t have to happen. This could have been handled a lot differently,” he stated.

“I believe they had full intentions on trying to shut that thing down early. Every time we clapped or supported somebody, we got scolded for it. Why aren’t we allowed to clap or… boo? Everybody has their own opinion. Why can’t everybody just get along and discuss our differences?” he puzzled aloud, including that the board members possible noticed the assembly as “a joke”.
