This past Wednesday in Columbus OH, some pro-lifers were protesting at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser. The event was called "Condom Couture 2011", a rather interesting name, but I digress.
A rogue off-duty cop who was moonlighting as a security guard for Planned Parenthood aggressed on the demonstrators. They called a police detective. When he came and tried to explain constitutional rights to the guard, the guard then assaulted the detective. Fortunately the pro-lifers had a camcorder and caught the debacle; a "youtube" of it is online and is embedded in the Lifenews report, with additional details. If you cannot see embedded video, please click here.
This situation is quite similar to another situation that occurred at a building in which Planned Parenthood rents office space in Silver Spring MD. There too was an agressive security guard that was there at the behest of Planned Parenthood. As you watch the video below, you'll see the assault in the second half of the clip (click here if you cannot see embedded video). The building management eventually forbade Planned Parenthood to retain guards outside their building. Important note: If pro-lifers did not have camcorders at the ready to capture the evidence of violence, there most likely would have been no corrective action taken in either case.
