Peaceful Pride Event Protestor Arrested in Wisconsin

A video showing a street preacher peacefully protesting a pride event went viral on Monday. Conservatives and free speech advocates are rallying behind Marcus Schroeder, who was reading the Bible in Watertown, Wisconsin before being confronted by police officers.

The event, called “Pride in the Park” was advertised as “family-friendly," despite the common sexual theme among these types of events. Using a microphone on a public sidewalk, Schroeder was interrupted when a police officer grabbed the microphone from his hand. He was handcuffed and charged with “unlawful use of sound amplification” and resisting arrest.

Clearly, this is a violation of the God-given right to free speech and expression. Considering the event was held in public, this should be a slam-dunk of a lawsuit for Schroeder.
