When “You” Had the Control

Insert the one-time Black Panther Charles Barron into a public safety hearing led by the pro-cop Peter Vallone, Jr. and well, you get some interesting exchanges.

Below is a short, rough transcript from one exchange during the meeting, which you can also hear over here.

Vallone: This is not your hearing, this is ours.

Barron: I’m not finished…In another two minutes, I’ll be finished.

Vallone: You got 30 seconds.

Barron: I got 2 minutes. Those days are over, Peter.

Vallone: What days would those be Council member Barron? What days would those be?

Barron: Those days when you had the control.
