Protestors disrupt Metro Council Meeting

A couple dozen protestors interrupted the Council meeting Tuesday night shortly after the meeting started. The were protesting the shooting of armed convicted criminal  Jocques Clemmons by police officer Joshua Lippert. After about a twenty-minute interruption the council agreed to give the protestors time at the end of the meeting to address the council and present their demands.  For more on this follow this link, this link, and this one.

As soon as the video of the meeting is available, I will post it. About the only item of any controversy or interest on the agenda was that the Council voted 33-3 on Second Reading to advance a $13.7 million incentive package for Opryland Hotel to build a water park (link.).
