CARBON HILL, Ala. (AP) — Two leaders of an Alabama city have resigned after their mayor posted a comment on Facebook about "killing out" socialists, "baby killers" and gay and transgender people.
But mayor Mark Chambers refused to step down and told residents of Carbon Hill that he plans to run for reelection.
Protesters staged a die-in and then confronted Chambers during Monday's meeting, where he sat between two empty chairs.
Some asked just how he would like to kill them. One carried a sign saying "if you kill me, my ghost will haunt you."
