Fred Keeley Reflects on Threats After Council Vote

Fresh off a meeting with the person who threatened to kill him over his vote on a council resolution regarding violence in the Middle East, Santa Cruz Mayor, Fred Keeley talks about the necessity of being able to disagree without being disagreeable. While defending his vote and the people’s right to have their say, Keeley talks about the necessity for peaceful disagreement. A half-hour before this interview, Keeley met with the teen who threatened to stab him to death over his vote, and the father, both of whom apologized both verbally, and in a written statement.
