Skip to comments.Breaking, video: Abortion clinic security guard pepper-sprays pro-lifers
Posted on 01/23/2013 3:19:14 PM PST by Morgana
This morning pro-lifers were singing and praying in front of Mississippis lone remaining abortion clinic when a security guard pepper-sprayed three of them in the face.
The aggressor was Roy Benjamin, a private, armed security guard who works for Jackson Womens Health Organization, in Jackson.
Clinic staff had placed an oscillating sprinkler on the public sidewalk to spray pro-lifers (also blocking the entrance to patrons).
Benjamin apparently became incensed after 15-yr-old Jim Zastrow put his shoe over the oscillator to keep it from spraying his father Cal, who was witnessing to mothers and staff on the public sidewalk next to it.
After Jim refused to move his foot, Benjamin suddenly and without warning left clinic property and shot first Jim and then Cal in the face with pepper spray.
When pro-lifer Doug Lane, who was videotaping the scene, told Benjamin, Dude, youre going to jail on that one, bro, Benjamin pepper-sprayed him in the face as well.
All three were taken to the hospital, where they were treated for eye, throat, and facial irritation. All three have been released.
When I spoke with Cal, he was at the police station pressing charges. Good for him.
Heres video of the incident:
Here is how the incident was described on WAPTnews.com:
Jackson Police Department spokeswoman Officer Colendula Green said when the three pro-life supporters came onto the property, the guard turned on a sprinkler and got them wet. The trio walked toward the guard and a verbal argument broke out between them, which resulted in the guard spraying them, she said.
Clinic officials said the sprinkler was there to water the grass .
When youve got people screaming at the women who come in here and a governor who evidently thinks thats OK, this is exactly whats going to happen, said clinic owner Diane Derzis.
Derzis said the guard felt threatened and defended himself.
Fortunately there is video to prove this was all totally fabricated.
And who waters their grass in 45 degree weather in January?
I wonder where Roy Benjamin spends his off hours when he isn’t attacking people?
MS Abortion Clinic PING!

Hey kids, here’s an idea—Let’s do like that newspaper in New York did and post a picture of this clown’s house on the internet, along with the address and all of his phone numbers.

You gotta be $hi**in me.
Well ... the closest match available was calendula cream or ointment available here: https://www.swansonvitamins.com/q?kw=calendula+ointment
Might have to do that.
Spokeo gave me six Roy Benjamins in Jackson MS, and I’d hate to post info about the wrong guy.
They hired themselves a racist to take care of those whities out front. Was the sprinkler on private or public property? Is it legal to spray a public sidewalk with a sprinkler?

Why My Support for Abortion Was Based on Love and Lies

A version of this post was originally published at my personal blog as How I Became Pro-Life. I wanted to run it here in honor of this weekend’s March for Life. (Note: It includes a graphic description of abortion.)
Who is human?
When I was younger, I was always particularly shocked when I heard about societies where it was common to abandon or kill unwanted newborns. In college I once read a particularly graphic description of a family in ancient Greece “discarding” a newborn baby girl. I was shocked to the point of breathlessness. I was also horribly confused: How could normal people be okay with this, let alone participate in it? Nobody I knew would do that! Were people that different back then?!
Thanks for posting this.
