Jackson police say three abortion protesters, including 15-year-old, have indicated they will press charges against a security guard they say sprayed them with pepper spray outside Mississippi’s only abortion clinic.
The demonstrators who were arrested stood passively on park ground — violating the city’s 10 p.m. curfew — as officers used plastic ties to handcuff them and lead them to eight paddywagons.
Protester Brad Veltry says about 4 or 5 tents have electric heaters in them.
For the second night in a row, protesters were told by St. Louis police to leave the public square by 10 p.m. or face summons and possible arrest.
