VIDEO: Man rushes stage during mayor's speech

(CNN) – A man bolted on stage Tuesday to interrupt Kansas City Mayor Sly James as he delivered his State of the City address.

After the man grabbed the microphone from James and angrily chided the mayor, he was tackled by security officers.

Standing calmly at the podium throughout the scuffle, James returned to his remarks and said, "Well, that was unfortunate."

    I respect this guy, he has guts. Don't believe it the way the NEWS is telling or show you... they want you to view this man as crazy and deranged. HE IS NOT! He is speaking truth, and is outraged by these people as how I and many are. They added the censor sound in to block out alot of it to distort the reason why he did this, to instead make it seem worse and crazier than what is really was. He only cursed ONE time and not how they made it sound in this video; so don't believe this misleading report by them on the C-ORRUPT N-EWS N-ETWORK. We need more people like this man, he need more people rising up and speaking out! SO WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    This man who ran on the stage was speaking out about how these liar frauds pretend to be someone they are not, how they really show no interest in us people, how these people in office talk about the things they make YOU believe they do but THEY DO NOT DO, ect.

    NOW KNOW THE TRUTH PEOPLE.

    "they want you to view this man as crazy and deranged. "

    Pretty sure he accomplished that all by himself and all it takes is for people to watch the video and make up their own minds to come to that very conclusion. That kind of behavior furthers nothing...not the causes/issue that man would claim to be concerned about nor civil discourse regarding the same.

    As for "C-ORRUPT N-EWS N-ETWORK," CNN is clearly incompetent and not terribly interested in engaging in the actual art of journalism, but again, there's no way to corruptly "spin" a video of the guy's actual behavior. It speaks for itself.

    There is a right way and a wrong to have your voices and concerns heard. This is not it.
