She refused to leave the school and the police placed her in handcuffs and arrested her. The school enforced a temporary lockdown. She told a media source, "I'm growing up in a country where I'm supposed to have my God-given rights protected, and they're being taken away. Everybody has the freedom to wear a mask if they choose, but I believe everybody also has the right to not wear a mask if they choose." The local school board voted to enforce a universal mask policy that her family believes is unlawful and violates the constitution of the state of Wyoming. -GEG
