On February 4, a homeowner gone wild attacked a team of Created Equal’s young pro-life activists who were demonstrating outside Beechcroft High School in Columbus, Ohio, as school was being dismissed.

Video of the incident shows the man, identified as Curtis Hall, crossing the street to berate Created Equal’s Josh Bertsch and Jami Beer (pictured with police officer below left and middle) before stealing and destroying their signs.

Hall shouted, “Get ’em out of here or I am going to break ’em.” He proceeded to knock signs over and take three, which he carried across the street and broke before throwing them in front of traffic.

Here’s video of the episode (WARNING: offensive language)…

Hall later told 10TV News “he is neither pro-life nor pro-choice – he just thinks the demonstration is inappropriate.”

But why would it be inappropriate to educate abortion-vulnerable high school students on the reality of abortion?

2015-02-06_1028Created Equal filed charges against Hall yesterday and demanded repayment of $120 for the broken signs.

This morning I spoke with Created Equal’s Executive Director, Mark Harrington, and Director of Training, Seth Drayer.

They indicated Hall wrote an email last night apologizing for his behavior.

It is Created Equal’s policy to drop charges if apologies are sincere, although it would still require financial restitution.

Hall’s sincerity will likely be put to the test today, because Created Equal has scheduled a return demonstration to Beechcroft High School.

Created Equal has six months to decide whether or not to proceed with charges.
