Mayor Sly James imma let you finish, but I'm the best mayoral candidate of all time. Ha! During Kansas City Mayor Sly James’ State of the City Address on Monday night, a man stormed the stage, threw the state's flag off the stage and went on a brief profanity-laced rant then got into a scuffle with security as they tried to take him away. It's hi-la-rious! That 31-year-old man, community activist and wanna-be politician Derron Black, was arrested and was charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and obstructing government operations.
Here are the raw videos:
Sidebar: While still in jail, Derron recorded this apology: “This is Derron Black. I’m here on 11th and Locust, downtown Kansas City at police headquarters. It is the 19th day of March, 6 p.m., and I’m just reflecting on all today’s events and I would just to apologize to all my fellow Kansas Citians for being disrespectful and disruptive today. But also would like to challenge Sly James because he just seems to be definitely disillusioned with the condition of our city right now. If you have listened to the State of the City, and if you have any consciousness about the true reality of the condition of the people east of Troost or just throughout Kansas City in general, you would absolutely be frustrated just like I am. But it’s okay. Everything — everything is from the Lord above, and I would like to tell everybody that will see you tomorrow 1300 hours when I’m finally released, Lord willing. Thank you.”
Sidebar 2: Derron is planning a press conference today to announce he's running for....... mayor! Good luck with that.
Update, May 21: That "press conference" didn't go as planned.
