TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SOURCES SAY ANGRY PROTESTOR WHO INTERRUPTED KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY'S STATE OF THE CITY SPEECH WAS FORMER MO STATE REP. CANDIDATE DERRON BLACK!
News before all of the other media in Kansas City and because they don't actually bother to talk to people at these press events . . .
So . . .
THIS PROTEST NOW TAKES ON A NEW TONE . . . THIS ISN'T ABOUT A CRAZY GUY GRABBING THE MIC . . . THIS IS A KANSAS CITY RESIDENT WHO IS POLITICALLY INVOLVED EXPRESSING A GREAT DEAL OF FRUSTRATION!!!
To put this in context . . .
Here is video of Derron Black speaking about "loving your neighbor" at a community event . . .
Derron Black speaking at a gathering
A candidate listing for Derron Black.
So . . .
This kinda changes my perspective on the whole deal . . .
THIS DISTURBANCE IS MORE LIKE A GROWING SENSE OF POLITICAL FRUSTRATION AND ANGST ON THE EAST SIDE OF KANSAS CITY AND NOT A RANDOM EVENT!!!
Developing . . .
UPDATED: Thanks to FOX4 who confirmed @ around 4:48 what we blogged at lunch time:
"Police would not confirm the man’s identity but multiple sources confirm to FOX 4 that the man arrested is Derron Black, a Democrat who ran for a Missouri House seat in District 23 last year, but lost."
