Sounds like that Mayor is gonna make some heads roll for this. Also I don't think that guy will be on the council much longer if this is how he is gonna treat the public.

This was a stunt, possibly setup between the mayor and J.J. The thing I found odd, is how she is only there to address the public, is that not a misuse of the system? I don't know how it all works, I just know your supposed to address the guys behind the benches, not turn your back to them and push your agenda on the audience.

This woman had the floor and the right to speak, no one can interrupt that except the leader giving her the floor in the first place.
The councilperson's interruption was out of order according to standard parliamentary procedure.
The lady speaking had the floor, she was not being violent or threatening in anyway, therefore the police should`ve stood down and let her talk. You can bet there will be lawsuits over that illegal arrest.

That was retarded. The mayor wasn't having her arrested, it was the rest of the council violating procedure because they didn`t like it. They guy on the left was trying to call a vote, even though they aren`t allowed to when someone has the floor.
