- Summary: «The Red Oak Community School canceled its Holi-drag storytime Saturday morning following promises of protest from the Proud Boys and what school officials described as only a "casual, distant acknowledgement" of the event from police. / The Columbus Division of Police and city officials, however, said they'd been in communication with organizers since they'd learned about the event weeks ago.» These two accounts do not actually contradict each other, though the wording implies that they do. Later in the article, though, police statements directly contradict what the school said about who first contacted whom.
