Watch: Man Threatens Student With Knife At PTA Meeting

A man in Rocky Point High School, New York, was politely escorted out for wielding a knife in front of a student during a Parents Teachers Association meeting Wednesday. The meeting was called to discuss issues of safety after some of the students ignored the school’s stance and participated in the National School Walkout calling for gun control. The students who took part in the protest were reportedly suspended by the school.

A student, who was present at the meeting, recorded the incident and shared it on Twitter. In the video, the man can be seen having an intense argument with a student before he pulled a knife out of his pocket and challenged “What you gonna do now?” The student visibly shaken takes a step back. Meanwhile, nobody steps up to contain the situation.
