Father Pfleger is a far left activist priest from Chicago. You may remember him campaigning for Obama back in 2008. These days, he has turned most of his attention to being a gun control activist. But one of his security members was just arrested for possessing a gun illegally.
The Chicago City Wire reports:
Armed member of ‘Pfleger’s security’ arrested outside his church
An armed security guard associated with staunch anti-gun and nationally known social activist, Father Michael Pfleger, was arrested on May 27 outside St. Sabina’s Roman Catholic Church on the South Side where Pfleger is a senior pastor.
The Chicago Police (CPD) charged Henry Eugene Hale, 35, with possessing a firearm without a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card. He was released on $ 150 bond.
A spokesperson for the CPD told Chicago City Wire that police officers approached Hale at the church, which is at 1200 W. 78th Place, when “they saw him holding a firearm.”
Records with the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation show that Hale’s FOID card expired in December 2017. Records also show that he is certified to work in Illinois as a security guard, and that he was once disciplined but it doesn’t explain why.
A May 29 blog post on “Second City Cop” referred to Hale as “Pfleger’s security” and said that “Pfleger and his minions called 006th dist (sic) nonstop to try to get the guy out of arrest.”
That’s going to hurt your credibility a little bit, Father.
