A Tween Just Served The Dallas City Council a Plate of Humiliation

The young man to the right is David Williams, who spoke during the open microphone portion of the Dallas City Council meeting this morning. Rocking a serious bolo tie, he questioned the City Council on school safety, and made sure they knew he was against arming school officials. Then he dropped his bomb and bounced: “Do you feel it’s acceptable for city council members to be up and walking while their constituents are addressing them?”

Point: Williams.

Councilman Dwaine Caraway brought Williams back to the mic, told him they had similar views on school safety and gun control, then got to the heart of the matter.

“It is not so respectful for folks to be walking when visitors are speaking,” he said, promising to try and stay put.
