KSHB: Protesters, mayor clash at Overland Park City Council meeting
The fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy in 2018 and the subsequent payoff given to the police officer who killed him led to a contentious and heated Overland Park City Council meeting Monday night.
Citizens and protesters demanded an opportunity to speak on the subject, but instead talked over the meeting when denied that chance.
“Why are you talking about a pool, when a young boy was massacred in his own driveway,” Bob Hoffman said after speaking about seven minutes without council approval at the start of the meeting. "His mother is here with us right now."
"Officer, could you remove these two from the council chambers?” Overland Park Mayor Carl Gerlach directed police officers in response to Hoffman and another protester standing and speaking before the meeting.
