Gun pulled on pro-life counsellor in Aurora, Illinois

Police investigating claims off-duty Chicago cop pulled gun on anti-abortion activist in Aurora

Because of the conflicting statements, Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli said it will be up to Crile to decide whether to press charges. If she decides to proceed, the case will be turned over to the DuPage County state's attorney's office. Crile said she and her husband were still trying to decide whether to pursue a complaint.

Lone person vs. off-duty cop. Who do you think would win that court case?

Aurora police are not identifying the off-duty Chicago officer, but Ferrelli said a silver handgun was located in the vehicle and the officer did have his badge.


Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, said this is the first time any of his counselors claim to have been confronted by someone with a gun.

"In the past we've had people swerve a car or yell a verbal threat, but nothing like this," he said. "We've complained to police before, but Planned Parenthood won't tell police if there's somebody matching that description in their offices as if it's some kind of sanctuary."

PP shielding criminals? Gee, where have we heard that before?
