Gov. Snyder's meeting with Baptist Ministers in Detroit disrupted

Michigan Gov. Snyder was in Detroit today talking about cooperatively coming up with a new vision for Detroit, but he wasn't met with cooperation by some.

The Detroit Free Press reports his meeting was disrupted by protestors.

A meeting between Gov. Rick Snyder and the council of Baptist Pastors ended abruptly this morning when a group of several dozen protesters disrupted the meeting with shouts about the emergency manager law. “Are you going to make sure the repeal gets on the ballot?” one protester shouted, with several more taking up the chants. After a few moments, Snyder was escorted out of the Bethel Baptist Church on the east side of Detroit.
