A video posted online late last week appears to show police in Jackson, Mississippi stand by as a protester steals multiple signs from a graphic pro-life display.

The footage, uploaded to YouTube by the organization behind the presentation, shows multiple officers appear to ignore complaints from the group as a man takes down their signs. The signs appeared to depict very graphic images showing the aftermath of abortion.
“We got a guy taking our signs and walking with them right now,” an individual can be seen telling officers in the video.
The officer does not appear to respond.
“Are you gonna allow someone to just walk away with our property?” a man asks an officer at another point in the video.
“I’m watching it,” the officer replies.
The Jackson Police Department did not immediately return a request for comment Monday afternoon from TheBlaze.
Footage shows the unidentified man take down multiple signs, apparently storing them on his property.
“He’s just taking our signs and putting them in his basement,” one individual is heard on video saying.
The pro-life organization, Created Equal, said in the video that charges were eventually filed against the man.
The group did not return a call seeking comment Monday afternoon from TheBlaze.
