Dane Slater says how he feels about others' opinions in front of some of his former fellow Troy police officers. The occasion is a Troy City Council meeting on July 11, 2011, where various speakers have just expressed their views on the new property tax Council is demanding in three weeks or they will close the library:
The public's right to speak and present supporting OR alternative views at city council meetings is protected by the U. S. Constitution, the Michigan Constitution, and Michigan State Law - the Open Meetings Act. But of course Dane Slater will do his best to ignore these laws when it suits him, just as he attempted to ignore state law on the Mayor's election date until Michigan's Attorney General sued our city to force the election.
