Listen to Texas Mayor’s Response When CNN Asks If There Was ‘Concern’ About Hosting Muhammad Cartoon Contest | Video | TheBlaze.com
After two gunmen were killed after opening fire outside a free speech event in Garland, Texas, the mayor of the city was asked by CNN whether there “was some concern” about hosting the event, which featured a Muhammad cartoon contest.
“It wasn’t at a school,” Mayor Douglas Athas said, correcting the CNN anchor. “It was at a school-owned building, it was a special events center…and they do rent it to the public. Events are held there all the time. This group wanted to rent it. There was concern, which is why he had heightened security in the area.”
