James Akers, the father of a high school student in the Dripping Springs Independent School District west of the state capital of Austin, used his 90 seconds to speak at the 23 August meeting to urge the district to institute mask protocols in schools, despite the inconvenient nature of wearing masks.
“I do not like the government or any other entity, just ask my wife, telling me what to do,” Mr Akers said as he took off his shirt and jacket. “But, sometimes, I’ve got to push the envelope a little bit, and I’ve just decided that I’m going to not just talk about it, but I’m going to walk the walk.”
“At work, they make me wear this jacket. I hate it. They make me wear this shirt and tie. I hate it,” he said.
“On the way over here, I ran three stop signs and four red lights,” he added. “I almost killed somebody out there, but by God, they’re my roads, too. So I have every right to drive as fast as I want to, make the turns that I want to. I got over here to the school today, and the parking lot was full, and I decided I was going to park wherever the hell I wanted to, which, in this case, happened to be a handicap spot,” he said and removed his pants, garnering cheers and boos from the surrounding crowd.
