Local pastor charged in assault, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Minister accused of speeding off in Lexus with repo man on hood.
If the repo mans story bears out, it sounds like a pretty wild ride:
He said the pastor was smiling during parts of the drive as he weaved and made sharp moves in an apparent effort to toss the repo man off.
''He hit the windshield wipers to try to knock my hands off the hood,'' Falzini said. ''He was laughing at me, telling me he was going to take me on the interstate.''
Pastor Marc Neal is in a heap of trouble:
A month after the incident, Neal has been charged with felonious assault, kidnapping and abduction.
Here they are: Counts one, two and three.
But curious thing about Neal. Hes a prominent local activist pushing citizen disarmament as the way to stop the violence.
''As community leaders we must promote safety. The possession of guns increases the risk of tragedy,'' Neal said.
Believing something needed to be done to get illegal guns off the streets, Neal approached the Akron Police Department and the Summit County's Sheriff's and Prosecutor's offices, with the gun buyback idea.
And its not just on the streets where Neal wants to remove the guns. From the following years event:
"It relieves the easy access of guns being available inside the home," Neal said.
All things considered, I guess thats understandable.
And hardly surprising.
Funny thing about some people who dont trust the rest of us with guns
“Hes a prominent local activist pushing citizen disarmament as the way to stop the violence.”
Why am I not surprised? Most gun control activists are the biggest hypocrites.
May the judge throw the book at Pastor Neal and throw him in jail.
What’s up with the preacher man owning (until it was repossessed) a Lexus?
Agreed. Another charlatan hiding behind the title of Pastor. There ought to be special place in hell for people like that, which includes Jackson and Sharpton.
There is. Read 2 Peter 2.
Too bad it wasn’t the bald headed belligerent numbnuts from the Repo show. Or the fat girl with the lip piercings.
Indeed. From the original article referenced by this article, it's pretty obvious this "pastor" is not a regular pastor, but a swindler...
When buyers fail to make a loan payment, the lender notifies the debtor that the car will be repossessed. It's Falzini's job to tow away the vehicles.
In Neal's case, Falzini said, the 2007 vehicle, worth nearly $60,000, was purchased through the minister's church.
The car's monthly payment of about $1,000 was overdue, and the balance owed was about $50,000, he said.
How can you buy back something you didn’t sell?
No kidding, he could have just as easily killed that man as if he’d had a gun shooting at him. I hope they throw this man into prison for a long time. Seems like the people that scream the loudest about peace are the least likely to actually do what they say.
This whole article brings to mind, WWJD . . . What Would Jesus Drive?
Awww, never mind. I will bet this Pastor helped fund raise for President For Life Barrak Milhous Odumbo.
Wow! $1000 a month car payment!
Play stupid games. Win stupid prizes.
A carpenter with a 12-man crew? An F-350 with a long bed and king cab. Maybe even a duallie.
This sounds like something from the movie “Car Wash”.
I love that movie!
It is strange to me to think that a congregation would be heartened to see their pastor driving a $60k car Lexus I guess that is the way sometimes.
“Oh look how the Lord has blessed Rev Ike”
God has designs for people who intentionally lead the sheep to slaughter...
I’m betting he’s one of those who claim they were “called to preach” and just began their inane babblings to whatever fools would listen. He can’t pronounce most of the words, much less understand what they mean, and he preaches “social justice” on the order of “Vote Democrat”.
Preachers make good money. It is more about how much you bring in each Sunday rather than what you give out each Sunday.
Explanation of the source of the left’s ideology can be found here:
The Lord giveth, the Small Print taketh away...
"..Now, just as a central purpose of religion is to order the soul, the central purpose of politics is to order the collective. But again, not for its own sake, but for the possibility of higher things (which ultimately revert back to the order of the soul). Thus, a government of disordered souls who only increase political disorder is actually a real evil, and should be recognized as such. .."
Let’s take away cars to stop car violence!
LOL, I still prefer my snubbie to a Lexus for self defense.
