Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak Runs Away From A Meeting on Gang Violence

In what was supposed to be a meeting and news conference between city leaders elected officials and concerned citizens, it instead turned out to be Brave Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak Running Away:

    ...as Rybak prepared to make "a final statement," the Rev. Jerry McAfee of New Salem Baptist Church got in front of him with remarks of his own.

    "You are not the only one who has a statement," he said, drowning out Rybak. "We're not going to permit you to come in here when you want, how you want. No more easy going, where if you don't get it your way, you get your stuff and go. If you have to go get in your car -- go."

    Rybak proceeded to walk through the crowd and left with his staff.

    The news conference then turned into a rally or protest, depending on the speaker.

Oh...the meeting had Wellstonian Moments, how Deja vu-ish of it!
