UK Street Preacher Wins $21K After ‘Wrongful Arrest’ by Manchester Police

He’d been complained about by some homo activists, and the police had denied him food and water, detained for 15 hours.

A street preacher in the U.K. has been awarded £13,000 ($21,664) by the local police after he was arrested for preaching against homosexuality in September 2011.

The Greater Manchester Police Department recently reached a settlement out of court with John Craven, a 57-year-old street preacher who frequented Market Street in Manchester, U.K., twice a week in 2011, where he would preach the Bible to passersby.

Good news, but I kinda wish he’d pressed on in court, and also sued the complainants, as well, and gotten whatever he could have from the court system…
