It’s a wonder that many of the speeches given by the president and other government officials go over without a hitch. Remember when the journalist threw the shoe at Bush’s head over in Iraq?

Well, Kansas City’s mayor, Sly James, didn’t get a shoe to the head, but during his state of the city speech, a mad man ran up on the stage, knocked over a flag, and commandeered the mic from Sly and made a brief statement to the crowd before being hustled to the ground by intense security.

“This man just got through talking about exactly what the [beep] he ain’t [beep] did…”

Kansas City Mayor Sly James' security team grabbed an unidentified man from the stage.

That was all he was able to get out before he was tackled by several of the mayor’s security team.  The mayor seemed to be stunned into silence.  He watched as security tried to get the man under control and arrest him.  He broke his silence with just a few words.

“Well that was unfortunate.”

Now we’re curious about what frustrated the man so much to make him spring to action in this way. Check out the CNN report below.

  1. Well, I’m glad he was trying to hurt, injure, maime, or kill this Mayor. What type of security does he have that would allow this man to get that close to him.
