A third video released by the Created Equal pro-life organization, which stages displays on college campuses to persuade people that abortion is wrong, reveals a school official telling an assault victim to not press charges against the attacker.
The footage is from the organization’s recent work at the campus of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
Other videos revealed the assault as well as the stunned disbelieve of a student who stole one of the organization’s signs and walked right into a police officer.
The new video is here:
It shows, according to Created Equal, Samuel Riley, the Created Equal team member who called the police as Austin Beigel was assaulted, being approached by a UNC administrator who asks him to “drop all charges against Ms. Ward (Jillian Ward).”
She was in the earlier video showing the attack on Beigel.
“The [unidentified] administrator is seen walking over to hug Ms. Ward minutes after she punched Mr. Beigel in the face but makes no attempt to console Austin, the victim. The administrator then approaches Sam and asks him to ‘not press charges against this young woman,'” the report from Created Equal said.
“She then goes on to describe the attacker as ‘remorseful’ and a ‘caring, loving young woman’ even though Ms. Ward did not make any attempt to apologize to Austin. When Sam tries to say that we should take assault seriously, the administrator agrees but states that shouldn’t be ‘legal consequences’ for the attacker. She walks away after saying, ‘I really wish you weren’t triggering women. I hope you do better in life,” the report said.
“Sam reminds her that ‘we are the victims.'”
A previous video shows a woman who grabbed a sign out of the hands of Created Equal members and walked away with it.
To her dismay, however, she walked right into the arms of a police officer and was arrested for larceny.
Caught red handed, she told the officer: “I was going to give it back.”
See the video:
“For years, we have documented violence against young members of our team. But perhaps even more shocking than violent outbursts is the incredulity some perpetrators show when held accountable,” the organization explained.
Created Equal President Mark Harrington said students “being groomed on college campuses to be leaders, writers, and thinkers of the Left are increasing in censorship and violence against those with whom they disagree.”
“Their surprise when held accountable indicates college campuses have become safe spaces for pro-abortion violence. Students at UNC and campuses like it are in dire need of remedial First Amendment training.”
The video shows the woman taking the sign and marching off, only to be halted by a police officer.
He asked, “Did you steal their sign?”
“I just moved it.”
She said the sign “restricts women’s rights.”
She gave up the sign and started walking away, but the officer halted her: “You’re not going anywhere.”
When the officer said, “You stole his sign,” she responded, “He has it back!”
The officer then explained she didn’t have the right to take someone’s property. The officer informed her of the group’s constitutional rights, pointing out that if she didn’t like their message, she could ignore it.
“Why’d you rip it out of his hands?” the officer asked.
“Because this restricts women’s rights,” the woman responds, as she taps the pro-life placard.
Upon further discussion with the officer, the student tried to portray herself as the victim of injustice.
“Do you see us being subjected to this sh**?” she protested.
The officer explained: “This is a public display. They have a right to be here. If you don’t like their speech, you can go away. You don’t have to watch it.”
“They’re here because they want us to watch them,” the student noted.
“OK, but you can ignore them,” said the officer. “If you ignore them, that takes away their power. It’s just that simple.”
The woman responded: “It doesn’t matter how much you ignore them. They’re gonna come back, and they’re gonna come back again. And this is why women have such a problem getting abortions in North Carolina. And y’all just let them get away with this sh**.”
Told she’s under arrest for larceny, she was incredulous.
“All I did was walk it over here. I was going to give it back to him,” she told the officer. “I cannot believe this is happening. … Is there something else I can do?”
Online comments were not sympathetic to the young lady’s viewpoint:
“I should try the ‘I just moved it’ excuse when ‘moving’ a laptop from the local electronics store.”
“[She] refused to take personal responsibility, and then put her own spin on what happened as if she was a victim. Are students on campuses really this childish?”
“She wanted the government to use force of arms to censor people who hold views different from her own. She’s a little totalitarian!”
“The fact people think theft and bodily harm is acceptable when you disagree with someone’s opinion, belief, or moral compass scares me for this country’s future.”
“Kindergarten covered keeping your hands to yourself … and The Ten Commandments covers stealing and murder … but she can’t believe she was being arrested. 2+2=5”
“The look on her face when he told her she’s under arrest is the same look she had on her face when she woke up and realized Trump was President. Zero notion of personal responsibility. Zero notion that her feelings don’t negate the rights of others. Excellent police work.”

The incident resulted in a misdemeanor citation against the attacker.
Created Equal was at UNC to show “large signs depicting the gruesome reality of abortion” and engage in discussions with students on April 2, the group said in a statement released Tuesday, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation, TheDCNF.
UNC confirmed 19-year-old Jillian Alexandra Ward allegedly hit Beigel in “the face and stomach with her fist,” according to an arrest citation report given to TheDCNF.
The pro-life Created Equal is on a tour across 14 college campuses in three states.
Created Equal reported there have been a number of other incidents:
- A Texas State University professor protected Ian Ramos, a student studying “nonviolent social resistance,” from arrest after he destroyed Created Equal signs in a violent rampage, calling the pro-lifers “deluded” for showing the injustice of abortion and ushering the student into a building before police arrive.
- The student government at Otterbein University of Ohio attempted to purchase a public sidewalk so Created Equal could no longer set-up First Amendment displays on it. Liberal professors joined the students in censoring the Created Equal signs with bed sheets and gave students credit for donating time to promote abortion.
- Months prior, Thomas Metcalf, a student at Indiana University, was arrested for stealing and vandalizing Created Equal’s signs. Metcalf, like Ward, is rising within the ranks of the political left. Before condemning the position of Created Equal team members — demonstrating that his violence was an effort to silence political opponents — this member of the Young Democratic Socialists of America roused a liberal rally, shouting, “Donald Trump is not the one in power! We are the one in power!”
- Created Equal has yet to release video footage of professors at the University of Central Florida and Ohio University trying to prevent police officers from pressing charges against violent students.
