DALLAS — Well, there was plenty of drama going on at the Dallas City Council Wednesday.

During the open mic session activist Richard Sheridan, who actually told the Council he was representing the black community, shouted down the council and took on Mayor Rawlings.

Sheridan wrapped up his rant stating, “Respectfully I believe you should resign. God bless you.”

Apparently, this dude has some anger issues when it comes to discussing hot topics such as ethics and white companies “allegedly” being involved in the John Wiley price scandal.

Oh, and he’s also the same dude who’s a “person of interest” in the unsolved “666” tagging.

Councilman Dwaine Caraway wasn’t too keen about Sheridan’s speech.

After hearing Sheridan’s intro about his involvement in the black community Caraway added, “The black community, we’re not looking for someone to ride in on a horse.”

Before long things got so heated Sheridan had to be escorted out by security.

Caraway got the last words —  “You say something else about my wife I’m coming over to the other side.”
