On July 17, 2014, the national pro-life group, Created Equal, who was recently attacked by a pro-choice woman in Ohio which made national news, uploaded a video showing complete disregard by the Jackson, Mississippi police department as their property was stolen.

The group visited Jackson site of the state’s last remaining abortion facility as part of Day 4 of their Summer Justice Ride.

Upon arrival, and despite several attempts by Created Equal’s leader, Mark Harrington to convince police to intervene, their pro-life signs, displaying pictures of abortion victims, were stolen while police stood by idly.

In the video, you can see the group notifying police that a man is walking off with their signs:

A second man brings several signs into the same building- both men boldly walk in front of the video with no concern about the police who are standing by and just watching.

According to the group-since the incident occurred, charges have been filed against the perpetrator….

Instead of criticizing the police for their inaction- here is how the local media reported this:

FROM WAPT:

The group began its protest outside the clinic, but when they started putting signs up in front of businesses across the street, a problem arose. The protesters claim some business owners removed the signs and stole them, so they called police.

Nathan Glenn, who owns Rooster’s, a restaurant in the building across the street from the clinic, said he didn’t take the signs off the sidewalk, but he was unhappy about how the protesters affected his business Thursday morning.

“(Customers) can’t get to my building. They can’t get to my front door. I’ve got four signs this way and three signs behind you,” Glenn said.

Protesters argued that the business owners had no right to touch the signs because they were on a public sidewalk. The municipal code for the city of Jackson prohibits portable signs. But the signs stayed on the sidewalk until the protest wrapped up, even after police arrived.

And the Clarion-Ledger said:
