An illegal prayer?
FPA security guard Johnny Lewis Stanley (R. Stanley Security Service badge #109) seeks to intimidate Christians by videotaping their activities. "We have nothing to hide," Terri Palmquist insists.
Terri Palmquist told FPA security guard Johnny Lewis Stanley
last week that many people are trusting in God to shut down this abortion
chamber by the end of the year. "Is that a threat?" Stanley snapped back,
reaching for his notebook to make a report.
"I didn't say we're going to do anything, God is going to close this place down! Write it down," Terri told the guard. "It will be a testimony."
Some time later, four police officers arrived to interrogate Terri about the alleged "terrorist threat." According to an officer, the guard quoted Terri as saying "I guarantee that this building won't be here by the end of the year."
When the officer learned that Terri had an audio recording of what she said, he said "you might want to keep that recording."
Two weeks earlier, the same security guard had threatened to run over a paraplegic man who was speaking out against abortion from the sidewalk. The man's wheelchair began tipping over as the guard pushed against it with his car.
When Terri reported Stanley's threat and assault, the Bakersfield Police Department sent one officer, who refused to cite the guard, comparing the incident to a barroom brawl.
Tim Palmquist called the office of the Bakersfield Police Chief requesting a meeting to discuss the bias shown by recent BPD actions. Initially the Chief's secretary said the Chief had time to meet with Tim two days later. But later she said she would call Tim back to schedule another meeting time. After waiting for three weeks to hear back from the Chief, Tim sensed that he was being dodged.
