MOB: A little deja vu

| October 8, 2021 1:00 AM

In his letter to the editor (Tuesday, Sept. 29), Bob Whitehead of Post Falls took exception to the Coeur d’Alene Press reporting of the “MOB SCENE” prior to a meeting of the Coeur d’Alene School Board on Sept. 24, claiming a “misrepresentation of the activity.”

Mr. Whitehead then cites an accurate definition of a MOB, yet argues that the picture reflects only a “public demonstration expressing views on a significant issue.”

I ask, Mr. Whitehead, was the “significant issue” related to testing the strength and durability of the windows and doors that were being pounded as armed police stood guard and as trustees were quickly and furtively led away in fear of their own safety?

Deja vu all over again, Mr. Whitehead. Or were those in our nation’s capitol on Jan. 6 not a MOB, but rather out for a walk, “expressing their views on a significant issue?”
