An Indiana school board member was caught on camera telling an activist to “cry me a river” after confronted about unmet needs of transgender students at a school. The board member appeared to motion playing a violin with her arms as she said it. The protester was from the Tri-State Alliance (TSA), an activism group from Southeastern Illinois, southwestern Indiana and western Kentucky. They were at the meeting to speak with the Evansville-Vandeburgh County School Corporation school board, and have been regular attendees at the meetings, according to the Illinois Eagle. Six of the 10 activists in the group signed up to speak at the meeting, but only one was allowed as the others were allegedly denied by board president Karen Ragland. Five more were eventually allowed to speak after protests were launched by the TSA.
