Wake County Schools
Some Wake County parents want charges filed over library books
As for the district, they are aware of the complaint and are currently reviewing it.
if there's a movement in this country back in october, Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson held a news conference saying he wanted three books he claimed were sexually explicit removed from north Carolina schools julie page watched that press conference and she wanted to know more about the books in question like ginger queer, lawn boy and George. So she took a peek. We're talking about very explicit borderline ex rated borderline pornography. You don't even see this kind of language in a book such as 50 shades of gray page joined other parents and filed a criminal complaint against Wake County schools to have these three books banned from the district. The complaint landed on the desk of Wake County Sheriff Gerald baker. He says he will review the complaint, but the district attorney must decide if it is criminal this one, it's different. The sheriff's office doesn't do it and prosecuting we we do the charges based on meeting the elements. So of Criminal law. One of those books, gender queer is a graphic novel with images that depict sexual fantasies and behavior. Page says it's not about sexual orientation. She adds, there are at least 24 books on their short list that are deemed explicit, including a book called Almost Perfect, which details a heterosexual relationship. I want the books to come out of the public schools. They have no business being in them and if the books are not removed page says she has no plans of backing down, We'll keep fighting for that. Um, I think the more that parents know about actually what is in these books
