Calgary police arrested Pastor Artur Pawlowski of Alberta, Canada’s Street Church Saturday after he allegedly hosted an illegal church service. The alleged worship service went against Ontario’s latest public health order.

Pawlowski and brother David were charged with “requesting, inciting or inviting others” to an “illegal in-person gathering” according to a statement from Calgary police. Currently, all Ontario citizens are under a strict stay-at-home order, and the only approved religious services allow for 10 people at a time, indoors or outdoors.

“It is important to understand that law enforcement recognizes people’s desire to participate in faith-based gatherings as well as the right to protest. However, as we find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, we all must comply with public health orders in order to ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing,” the statement said.

In a video that subsequently went viral, the polish pastor shouted at police officers who’d intruded his Church during a Passover celebration. He called the officers “gestapo” and “Nazis.”

His arrest was recorded and uploaded to his YouTube channel. The pastor was still defiant as he was being arrested. “Do it the Nazi style!” he told officers as they dragged him away. “Taser me! Kill me!”

Darrell Brooks found guilty on 76 charges in Waukesha Christmas Parade murders

Six people died and at least another 61 people were injured when a red Ford Escape SUV driven by Darrell Brooks drove through a holiday parade on November 21, 2021. Almost a year later, after a long and intense dramatic legal battle, Brooks has been found guilty.

40 year old Brooks defended himself in court after killing his victims who ranged in age from 8 to 81. It took Waukesha County Circuit Judge Jennifer Dorow about 25 minutes to read the guilty verdicts on all 76 charges.

Brooks’ case garnered national media attention in part due to the liberal policies which allowed him to walk the streets and commit this crime. Brooks had been freed previously on a mere $1,000 bail from an earlier case in Milwaukee County. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found that bail to be considerably lower than the average of similar open cases. He also had been assessed as a high risk for release. Nonetheless, he was released on the streets only to commit murder not long after.

City of Waukesha officials welcomed the trial’s end. “I am thankful that the jury found the defendant guilty on all counts,” said Mayor Shawn Reilly. “We can now re-focus on taking steps forward as a community and continue the healing process.”

“The victims’ families as well as our first responders continue to deal with the lasting effects of the horrors of that day,” said Police Chief Dan Thompson. ” We are grateful for the support that has come from all over the world, and we ask you to continue to keep all those involved in your prayers.”

A statement from the city read, in part, “As a community, we still have a long road ahead filled with difficult days. This will be especially true as we approach the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. However, as we have experienced the past year, we know that when we stand together, we remain Waukesha Strong.”
