Pro-life Leader Beaten by Church Security Team and Arrested
Church security team beats man handing out pro-life literature. Incident video clears the man and shows church security at fault. I personally don't care for the pro-life activist abortion pictures outside my church, however; it is their right. Just shows what an untrained security team can do. I am sure legal action will be forthcoming against both the church and the individual security team members.
Pro-life Leader Beaten and Arrested

NAPA, Calif., June 1, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ -- Yesterday, Life Legal Senior Counsel Allison Aranda was in court on behalf of Jeff White, founder of Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a nationwide faith-based organization that equips young people to advocate for human life in the womb.
White was distributing leaflets for a pro-life congressional candidate in a church parking lot when he was surrounded by the church's security team. At least four large men harassed White and beat him to the ground, resulting in extensive injuries to his head. Only then did they call the police—to press charges against White!
Officers arrested White and charged him with battery, based solely on the statements of the security team.
Life Legal obtained a video of the incident, which shows that Jeff White was cornered by the security guards, who ignored his plea to immediately call the police. Instead, they assaulted him and then alleged that he was the aggressor.
The incident occurred in November of last year. For months, Life Legal attorney Aranda has argued that this was a false arrest and that the security team initiated the confrontation. At yesterday's hearing, all charges against Jeff were dropped!
"We are appalled that a prolife activist would be attacked in this way simply because he was handing out literature," said Life Legal Defense Foundation Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. "It took several months, but we are pleased that the court finally delivered justice for Jeff White."
Life Legal is currently evaluating options on behalf of Jeff White going forward.
