The mayor of Scottsdale, Ariz., is being called on to apologize after he told a citizen “no” when he asked for a minute of silence to honor a fallen Phoenix police detective at a council meeting on Tuesday.A resident asked members of the Scottsdale City Council if it would be OK to have a moment of silence in honor of Phoenix police Detective John Hobbs, who was fatally shot Monday by a suspect wanted for attempted murder. Another detective, also shot, was transported to a Phoenix hospital for emergency surgery.

Later in the meeting, another city councilman made his own request to honor both detectives with a moment of silence. At around 7:45 p.m. — nearly three hours after the first request — Mayor Lane permitted the gesture. However, by the time the moment of silence was finally held, almost everyone had left the council meeting.
