Mass Private I Posted Tues., Feb.21, 2017
The great American Police State has outdone itself! America already has public transit police, hospital police, campus and high school police and now you can add ‘church’ police to the list.
According to an article in Alabama.com the Briarwood Presbyterian Church and Briarwood Christian School wants to have it’s own police force. HB 45 would allow religious centers to hire their own police force, HB 45 would also make it a hate crime to criticize first responders.
Earlier this year, I warned everyone that people will be arrested for criticizing first responders. Imagine going to church or religious school and being arrested for criticizing a priest, minister, rabbi etc.
Church attormey Eric Johnston claims, police would be patrolling their campuses and churches in ‘church’ police vehicles and claims they won’t have a jail.
It would not involve a jail or other facilities – basically an officer and an official car, he said. “I couldn’t imagine it would be something more than that,” Johnston said.
Johnston couldn’t imagine ‘church’ police having jails? Don’t believe him, when campus police replaced campus security, officials said the same thing.
Lawmakers said that allowing a private church to have its own police force, would be like opening pandora’s box.
