This 1 hour 3 minute audio is missing the first 25 minutes of the hearing. Mostly this is public comment by dozens of speakers against the proposed youth curfew, with only two supporters of the curfew heard here. Four council members speak near the end of the hearing. At one point late in the hearing, as one council member made remarks the crowd found objectionable, one man in the balcony was threatened with having the police forcibly remove him when he tried to explain why the remarks were problematic.
