As I wrote a couple weeks ago, pro-life activist Todd Bullis recently relocated from California to Texas.
Recall Todd launched The Church Project while in California, showing graphic images of aborted babies on Sunday mornings in front of churches professing to be pro-life but bearing no fruit.
To say the least, Todd had interesting experiences at those churches from being hosed by an off-duty police officer congregant at one church to having signs flipped over by a congregant at another.
Todd plans to continue his project in Plano.
This past Saturday Todd and his son decided to test the waters by holding a little two-person picket on a random high traffic street corner. Todd had run into rudeness when attempting to communicate his future plans in person to the Plano police department, so he decided to check out the lay of the land.
Plano Police Officer Steven Sanders, Badge #1439, responded to a complaint, and as Todd explains in his video, went above and beyond the call of duty to harassment.
Sanders refused to let Todd videotape him, claiming Todds camera just might be a gun. But I found a photo of Sanders, right, in a cigar club puff piece.
Sanders went out of his way to make trouble for Todd. For instance, Todd had parked his car in an empty church parking lot, not even knowing it belonged to a church a block away. Sanders said he was going to encourage the church to file trespassing charges.
Ill let Todd take it from here
Sanders said he was going to encourage the church to file trespassing charges.
“Yes officer, YOU ARE trespassing!”
“We are Pro-Life too!”
Steve, Have you figured out how you’re going to explain to God, “why?” you’re fighting on THAT side of this battle?
Hummm. Seems like Sanders’ actions are not working. I am Pro-Life, but think he should try other ways to stop people from having abortions. And instead of demonstrating in front of Churches, why not join and attend one. Try to talk to people one on one to start a group who demonstrate at abortion clinics?
Sorry, I meant Bullis’ actions not working.
Here in Reno we have pro-life protestors in front of a abortion clinic everyday. More accurately, they are on the side, across a sidewalk but facing a very busy street. Each day I’m on patrol whenever I see them, I slow down and wave or honk in support.
Hey, some people actually get out of the salt shaker.
