CARBON HILL, Ala. -- An Alabama mayor and city leaders refused to acknowledge questions on the mayor's statements about "killing out" gay and transgender people at a city council meeting.
News outlets report Mayor Mark Chambers and Carbon Hill City Council members walked into a council meeting Monday and quickly walked out as spectators demanded answers on the mayor's comments.
Dozens of people showed up to the council meeting but left disappointed. Many said they would continue going to the meetings until the topic is discussed.
Chambers previously offered to resign his position but it's unclear if he still plans to do so.
