I don’t know anything about the politics of Kansas City Mayor Sly James, but regardless, the Mayor’s security team should catch hell for this. Had the man been intent on doing harm to the mayor, this could have turned out to have much more serious consequences.
The mayor was on a stage giving a “State of the City” speech. His security was there, but standing in the wings. They were on the guy within seconds and subdued him. They mayor himself said he had nothing but praise for his security staff and that there wasn’t anything they could have done differently.
