What can be said in 25 seconds? Not much, Des Moines City Council public commenters learn

A surprise to nobody, public commenters at Monday’s Des Moines City Council could not say much in 25 seconds.

Another came more prepared with a short rap about his disdain for the Des Moines Police Department and city leadership. Another person’s comments seemed to be pre-recorded and were gradually sped up until reaching a high-pitched squeak.
