Robert Jackson to Audience: "Shut Up"

This YouTube video shows Washington Heights City Councilperson Robert Jackson delivering a sharp "shut up" to an audience member after being asked about the 125th Street "River to River" rezoning plan. Jackson, who also caught flack from community members for supporting Columbia's Manhattanville expansion, was interrupted by someone telling him to "answer the question" about rezoning, prompting Jackson's response - and a lesson in public demeanor in the age of YouTube.

In fairness to Jackson, we'd like to see the entire tape for proper context.
