At the 40 Days for Life vigil in Little Rock, the abortion center staff has been known to turn the sprinklers on ? trying to soak participants.

The idea is to keep the prayer volunteers away from the sidewalk.

One day during the campaign, a landscaper had parked across the street to do some work. He approached the security guard and asked him to turn off the sprinklers. Not only was his truck getting wet, but he also said it was a traffic hazard.

The guard became hostile and started cursing, so the landscaper called the police. It?s worth noting that the landscaper is a former police officer.

Five officers in three patrol cars soon arrived to take a report ? and one of the prayer volunteers added information about the sprinklers.

"We have not had any luck getting them stopped," said Mary in Little Rock. But maybe with a former office filing a complaint, "we will see!"
