Young Street Preacher ARRESTED While On Public Sidewalk Preaching The Gospel
I have to quote my friend “Pizza Pepe” as we start this one…
I’m the FIRST one to back the blue, but this is NOT a good look!
Not good at all.
Im the first one to back the police but damn… not a good look…

Also, “I was just following orders” is never a good excuse either.
The police ONLY have power because we as a society have delegated it to them for one purpose: to keep us safe.
All overreach beyond keeping us safe is exactly that — overreach.
A power grab.
Power going to heads.
So sad to see.
So while I still back the blue, I am very sad to see what happened today:
BREAKING: Young man arrested for sharing the Bible on a public sidewalk
Blatant violation of the 1st amendment of The Constitution. Every one of those cops should be fired and sued. pic.twitter.com/ef8zBXSf5c

Was that young man harming anyone?
Harming demons perhaps with the preaching of the Gospel.
Look how docile and peaceful he is standing there.
Standing there and simply reading the Word of God.
This is now an offense worthy of arrest?
This country has lost its way.
Concerned citizens attempted to get more information:
I called Watertown Wisconsin this morning trying to get more information on the young man that was arrested and his Bible taken away. The Watertown Police Department has no public statement and will not release any information without a FOI request. They are aware the video is… https://t.co/emAWDGaEpS pic.twitter.com/kbzMHWAwR4

The Republic Sentinel had more insight after the fact:
Police arrested and detained several young people in Watertown, Wisconsin, on Saturday while they were preaching the gospel at a public drag queen event targeted toward children.
Video circulated on social media showing multiple police officers arresting Marcus Schroeder as he was reading from the Bible. One officer was recorded aggressively pulling a microphone out of his hands and walking him away in handcuffs. Nick Proell, another young Christian, was detained and removed from the venue but later released with a warning.
Jason Storms, who recorded the viral video, said in remarks provided to The Sentinel that the young people, who attend Mercy Seat Christian Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin, were some of more than 200 individuals from various groups assembled to protest the drag show.
“The police, per orders from city leaders, arrested several young people. Three were arrested earlier in the day while inside the park praying and talking to attendees, and then released with warnings,” said Storms, who serves as minister of evangelism at Mercy Seat Christian Church. “It was open to the public, thus the public’s right to free speech carries with them. One was arrested later in the day for preaching on the public sidewalk outside the venue and is being charged with unlawful use of sound amplification and resisting arrest.”
Schroeder said in an interview with The Sentinel that the incident has encouraged him and his fellow church members toward “further boldness,” noting that “the fight’s not just going to go away.”
“It was worth it. It’s actually an honor to be counted worthy to stand with the cloud of witnesses who have gone before us and been arrested for the sake of spreading Christ and his kingdom,” he said. “If the police wanted to try and set an example for others or anything like that, the only thing I’ve seen is actually the exact opposite, where more and more people are seeing the severity of what’s going on and being called to more action.”
Proell likewise told The Sentinel that he “absolutely” does not regret his detainment. “I’d do it all over again if it gives me an opportunity to share the good news and rescue innocent children being sexualized by their parents,” he said. “God will use it for good. We will stand for truth even if we stand alone.”
Storms added that there were several dozen police officers assembled to protect the drag queen event, during which performers dressed in lingerie were seen “dancing and gyrating in front of little children, who were invited to give them one dollar bills.” Wisconsin law forbids individuals from causing a minor to view or listen to “sexually explicit conduct.”
Wow, they claim he was “resisting arrest”?
You can see the video for yourself…does that look like someone resisting arrest to you?
Meanwhile, George Floyd was just a peaceful, wonderful man full of charity, do I have that right?
GIVE ME A BREAK.
