This happened right up the road from good ol pb.

Watch the video.

In the video, the lying police thug, "claims that (the peaceful protester, Damon Atkins) “began to yell to the people” attending the pride event.

The police thug claims, “I immediately approached him and told him that, while he was free to stand on that side of the street and hold his sign,” he wrote in the affidavit, “he could not cross the street nor yell comments intended to disrupt the event.”

Sgt. McClure added that Atkins “said he understood.” But the video does not show Atkins agreeing to remain silent and Atkins told The Lancaster Patriot that he never agreed to McClure’s instructions.

The affidavit continues with McClure claiming that in less than a minute Atkins “resumed yelling derogatory comments to the people at the event.”

The video records the only words from Atkins as “God is not the” immediately prior to McClure arresting him.

...the Reading Police Department...explains that a violation of the Disorderly Conduct statute entails “the intent to cause substantial public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, he engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or tumultuous behavior” and that Atkins “despite being warned by police just moments prior, yelled derogatory comments at an organization that was holding a permitted event.”


Sgt. McClure is lying like a rug in his affidavit. Obviously. Indisputably. It was only after the video went viral...note that one of my links is to the UK's DAILY MAIL...that the charges were dropped.

Gang,

This is why po's "MAGA Republican" "Christian theocrats" ain't backing down! It's why Donna's "fascistic and disgusting" legislation is being passed in state after state.

The guarantee in the first promise of the First Amendment means less and less when it's unwoke people who are employing it.

To the SS trans people and trans-philes: Tell me that the guy in the video was committing the crime he was arrested for. Tell me the cop was justified.

Lovers of the liberties guaranteed to all citizens by the Bill of Rights are increasingly furious...by the day. Tell me that you don't understand why.

    Sounds like the cop was wrong. Cops are often wrong, and their victims are often journalists and peaceful protesters.

    Some Christians have a persecution complex. I think it comes from their awareness that, unlike in some parts of the world throughout history where Christians were persecuted to the point of being murdered for their faith, they themselves and their fellow Christians have never experienced real religious persecution in America, which they feel guilty about, so they manufacture the idea that they're being persecuted to con themselves into believing that they're martyrs, thus removing their guilt of never having suffered for their faith. IMO.


  2. by HatetheSwamp on June 11, 2023 8:15 am

    Sit down.

    Agreed, mostly.

    You may be exaggerating how commonly American Christians suffer from a persecution complex. Some do.


    What I find increasingly common is the institutional, well persecution, not of Christianity nor Christians, but of religion. Our secular culture has become increasingly hostile toward belief...much of it, TQ.


  3. by Ponderer on June 11, 2023 8:19 am

    NO! Donna, this one single case absolutely proves beyond any doubt that there is a concerted and organized effort by the Woke/BLM/Dem/Lib/Trans/Woke/Progressive/Liberal left to totally eliminate Christianity from our society!!!

    Not Christians of course. We don't want to eliminate Christians.

    Just Christianity.

    ...there is a concerted and organized effort by the Woke/BLM/Dem/Lib/Trans/Woke/Progressive/Liberal left to totally eliminate Christianity from our society!!!

    po, I specifically said not Christianity or Christians but religion...belief.

    There's definite hostility from secularists toward the religious. I'm sure you're aware of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence flap involving the LA Dodgers. And,...you remember the high school football coach Supreme Court decision last year. Few people were surprised that the Court sided with him but I was stunned that anger at that decision approached that of the Dobbs decision.

    There's definitely increasing hostility toward belief among the secular today. I don't see that that's debatable.

    Oh my god yes of course Bill!!! These THREE SINGLE EXAMPLES that you gave are clear and demonstrable evidence of the sinister cabal of Woke/BLM/Dem/Lib/Trans/Woke/Progressive/Liberal Lefties of which I just spoke!

    I said "some" Christians, yet you say that I "may be exaggerating", Hts. What word should I have used instead of "some".

    With that said, I was surprised to find that we're in general agreement on what I posted. 🍻


  7. by HatetheSwamp on June 11, 2023 11:26 am

    "small minority?"


  8. by Donna on June 11, 2023 3:30 pm

    I said "some" because I can't honestly be more specific. Apparently you have enough info to say that it's a small minority, though. Are you using at a survey or poll, or is "small minority" a guess based on your personal experience?


  9. by oldedude on June 11, 2023 8:22 pm
    Okay. Donna, I understand your point.

    My issue is about 1. Which side of which street was he supposed to be on. That information was redacted. 2) If he was contacted by the PD, I would assume he was on the wrong side, but it doesn't sound like that. So it's a point of clarification. This would weigh heavily with the video.

    If the guy is on the correct side, it could very well be assault (by the officer). If not, the officer may be within his training and lawfully place the guy in a position to be arrested. Remember, every jurisdiction is different.

    Lead.... these officers are very eastCoast to me. Maybe there they need to be. I dunno. AND the "preacher" is, my guess a frequent person in the contact card list. Jussayin.


  10. by oldedude on June 11, 2023 8:33 pm
    Okay, saw it. This is an example of free speech. They were on the correct side of the street. They were using their free speech ACROSS THE STREET. Reading is going to be sued from this. Oh well... It could be the city fathers were put under some "pressure" to keep other's away from this. Then they should be paying the debt for the actions.


  11. by HatetheSwamp on June 12, 2023 3:03 am

    Interestingly, my wife worked as an administrative assistant for the Reading Police years ago. They weren't woke then. But, apparently, things have changed. That cop's affidavit doesn't comport with truth.

    It's understandable that people who are mistreated end up calling for the defunding of the police. But, get it. po's "MAGA Republican" "Christian theocrats" ain't.


  12. by HatetheSwamp on June 12, 2023 3:35 am

    Just a note about Fox for Donna and all y'all. I only began my Fox News Channel and Fox News Radio boycott about a month ago. I'm still up to date. Fox ain't CNN and MSNBC. It actually does report some news...it's not a pure preachin channel, like you progressives have.

    The program, FOX NEWS SUNDAY, is a Fox Network show, not a Fox News Channel show, and it's moderator is sumpthin CNN and MSNBC does employ, an actual, as po'd say, EFFIN journalist.

    On CNN and MSNBC, they would do the progressive version of taking a cheap shot at Hillary. But. FOX NEWS SUNDAY ain't that. It's, by far the closest thing to Tim Russert's version of MEET THE PRESS that there is today....by a looooooooong shot. That's why pb watches.

    And, Donna! Bill Barr?, take a cheap shot at Hillary? C'mon man, as the Former Truck Driver would say, gimme a break! Jonathan Turley? Trey Gowdy? Brit Hume? C'mon man! Gimme me, as po'd say, an EFFIN break.

    The point, as blinded to truth as even you are?, Hillary's actions were, genuinely, truly, egregious.

    Get used to it.

    Among non MAGA Republicans...and informed independents...Hillary will be Trump's ace in the hole. She's why this will be a political victory for Trump and the antiSwamp.

    So, get real.

    Sorry. Wrong thread.


  14. by Indy! on June 12, 2023 8:22 am
    Tim Russert's Meet the Press was no different than David Gregory's MTP or Chuck Todd's. They ask the questions they are ALLOWED to ask and nothing that will make any waves or challenge the status quo. All three are to journalism as Velveeta is to fine dining.

    So far as the Christian thing - we live in a secular country. That means we should not have to hear any religious nonsense (and it is NONSENSE) outside of a religious establishment. If Christians (muslims, Jews, Jehovah's witnesses, Scientologists, coptics or any other religious group) had to listen to Mother Goose fairy tales or Nostradamus' predictions before dinners, government meetings, sporting events, funerals or anywhere else - they would be whining nonstop about it. Same thing. There is nothing to suggest religion is anything more than fictional fairy tales from people who thought the sun revolved around the earth.

    , Indy!.


  16. by HatetheSwamp on June 12, 2023 9:24 am

    Indy!

    I agree with you about more things than not. But, you are aware that the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, guarantees the Free Exercise of Religion?

    I despise institutionalized religion as much as anyone but where there's freedom, people who think differently than you are free. And, you love that reality, even if you hate what they think. To quote Joe Biden, "C'mon man. Gimme a break!"
