Woman arrested for ‘praying’ by the ‘Keystone Cops’
A woman was confronted by police who asked if she was praying. She said she might be silently praying in her head. That was enough for the UK cops to arrest her. The police were mocked up and down social media and called the ‘Keystone Cops.’ The Daily Signal reported the following:
Authorities have arrested a pro-life woman for silently praying outside an abortion clinic in the United Kingdom.
News of Isabel Vaughan Spruce’s arrest comes amid anxieties over the Justice Department’s crackdown on pro-life activists in the United States, such as Mark Houck, a pro-life father arrested for allegedly pushing an abortion clinic volunteer who was reportedly bothering his son as they prayed outside an abortion clinic.
Footage published by Alliance Defending Freedom shows police confronting Spruce, who has been charged with breaking a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for praying silently near an abortion clinic on four different occasions in Kings Norton, Birmingham.
So imagine that. You’re standing there not saying anything out loud and you still get arrested. I don’t think the charges will stick, but then again, maybe they will. Either way, it’s a pretty dumb law if you ask me.
