A high school principal regretted calling the police after absolutely losing it on pro-life protesters for daring to advocate against abortion and talk to students on public property. And it was all caught on video.
Watch what happened when the police arrived:
Life News identified the principal as Carlton Mable of South Side High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Thomas More Society is demanding an apology for his actions that appeared to infringe on the free speech rights of the protesters.
The Fort Wayne Public School Board has received a letter from the Thomas More Society demanding an apology for the alleged disturbing misconduct of South Side High School Principal Carlton Mable.
On November 18, 2016, Mable, in front of students, tried to block pro-life advocates from displaying abortion-condemning signs on the public right of way and prohibit them from providing students with pro-life information. Mable even went so far as to physically wrest a sign away from one pro-life advocate before throwing it to the ground.
Mable’s tirade, caught on video and eventually halted by police, has resulted in the demand issued by attorney Thomas M. Dixon, Thomas More Society Special Counsel and President at Dixon, Wright & Associates, P.C. Acting on behalf of Created Equal and individuals whose First Amendment rights were trampled by Mable, the Thomas More Society has also asked the City of Fort Wayne for reassurances of the continued protection of the pro-life advocates’ constitutionally guaranteed rights.
While some question the efficacy of using graphic images of aborted fetuses in pro-life demonstrations, the law is clear that people are fully within their constitutional rights to do so on public property. It is disturbing that someone charged with educating our children would be so ignorant of their constitutional rights and so vehement about denying them. Thankfully, the police set him straight after arriving on the scene.
