Justice: Girl Who Stole Pro-Life Sign Crumbles When Cop Tells Her To Put Her Hands Behind Her Back

A student at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is going viral for all the wrong reasons after she was arrested on camera for stealing the sign of pro-life activists.

The unidentified student in the video, which was published to YouTube on Tuesday and occurred in April, can be seen snatching a sign from protesters that said: “Warning: Abortion Victim Photos Ahead.”

The young woman can be seen leaving with the sign as the activists pursue her. Also in pursuit: the police.

When the young woman was confronted by a police officer, who asked if she had stolen the protesters’ sign, she claimed she had “just moved it.”

“Well, you took it,” the police officer said.

When asked why she did it, she smiled, tapped the sign and said, “Because — this restricts women’s rights.”

“He’s promoting lies on college campus,” she continued.

The flippancy ended when it became clear she wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

“I can’t believe y’all protect them,” she told the officer.

This is an interesting position. On Wednesday, I was reporting — in a different context, of course — on a quote from Sen. Kamala Harris, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate and perfervid abortion advocate.

“Let me just be very clear about this,” she said in response to a question about illegal immigrants being covered under “Medicare for All.”

“I am opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health,” she added.

I’m sure Harris would decline to stick up for this student’s behavior, but I can also guarantee a hefty percentage of her supporters feel the same way this student does: Pro-life protesters don’t deserve access to public safety.

I don’t doubt there would be people who cheer her on despite the fact that she stole someone else’s property and openly admitted to doing the same, yet openly wondered why the officer arrested her.

The pro-life group in question, Created Equal, also had one of its members assaulted on the UNC campus in April, another incident which made national news.

Jillian Ward, a self-identified feminist and aspiring journalist, was cited for misdemeanor assault in the attack, which was also caught on video.

“F—ing terrible person,” Ward yells on the video. “You’re a terrible person. You — this is not OK. This is not okay. This is not OK. Shut the f— up right now. This is wrong. This is triggering. You’re not an innocent human being. You’re a terrible person.”

In that case, Ward wasn’t taken into custody, just cited and let go.

In this case, well, not so much. As you can see, she got hauled in. I don’t usually give into schadenfreude, but the look on her face when the cop tells her to put her hands behind her back is priceless.

You can see that she clearly didn’t think she would be arrested for stealing a sign — and, in fact, she can be heard saying: “I cannot believe this is happening. Is there something else that I can do?”

“No,” the officer responded, before calmly placing handcuffs on her.

One hopes this is representative of the university’s policy going forward. After all, Harris was right, in a way: No individual ought to be denied the right to public safety, no matter what their opinion.

“College students who interfere with our First Amendment rights by assaulting us or stealing our signs are not the victims,” Mark Harrington, president of Created Equal, told Fox News.

“Universities are failing to educate students on the basic American ideal of freedom of speech.”
