Flint Cops Don’t Take Kindly To People Who Don’t Like Lead Poisoning

In The Young Turks on YouTube by Aaron Wysocki2 Comments


Flint cops were looking for any excuse to arrest people at a recent town hall. This included wearing hats (because it was held in a church). Apparently Jesus wants you to take off your hat, bow your head, and drink your poison. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go

“Six people were arrested Thursday in Flint in a disturbance that erupted after police stopped men who hadn’t removed their hats and denied their entrance to a church sanctuary where a town hall meeting on whether the city should begin drawing water again from the Flint River, a move three years ago that resulted in dangerously high levels of lead in the city drinking water supply, or continue getting it from Detroit. Some people who were “cussing in the church” during the emotionally raw town hall meeting were also escorted out of the House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church by police, according to media reports.

The police actions angered many in the crowd of about 100 people who argued that when the church opened its doors for government purposes, traditional decorum shouldn’t apply. At the onset of the meeting, Flint Police Chief Tim Johnson asked the men to remove their hats and warned that anyone who was disruptive would be removed.”*

  1. How is LEOs enforcing the religious customs of Christianity different from Islamic theocracies enforcing Sharia Law? Not the difference in customs – but the act of enforcing them.

    This is not Constitutional, not in the slightest. This is a severe breach of the separation of church and state and as you mentioned Cenk, it was likely a power play to suppress dissent.

    Where is the conservative outrage on this? *crickets*
