Same principles, same priest, a new day, another arrest.
However this time it takes 30 seconds — not 4 humiliating minutes - to arrest and remove Father from the scene. It is done discretely, respectfully and without violence. Without yanking on Father’s previously broken arms, without twisting them behind his back, without handcuffing him, without manhandling him to the ground, without placing a demeaning tag around his neck, without rolling him over on the hard ground – his wrists still tightly bound behind him – and pinning him between the leg and boot of one policeman and the edge of the blanket-type stretcher held by two other, and without making him lay exposed and defenseless, while cameramen, photographers and unfazed bystanders, film, shoot and gawk like they’re at the zoo.
(0:28) Fr says he is not leaving. Police say they need to arrest him for trespassing, call for a blanket, gently put him onto it and leave. (1:oo)
Where is Father resisting?
He was arrested for Trespass and Resisting arrest.
