-- From "Lisbon pastor's wife fined for praying too loud" by Christina Craig, Valley News KVLY-TV11 & KXJB (Fargo, ND) 2/24/15
Nagbe said police told her to stop praying downtown and in area neighborhoods. She moved from Liberia to this country for opportunity, but feels that she's being denied her rights.
In one hand Nagbe carries her bible, singing versus [sic] of praise throughout the streets. Lisbon's police chief told us Nagbe's loud praying is "disturbing the peace."
Police further comment this isn't about race, religion, or freedom of speech. They've received complaints from neighbors "that have been woken up and she is standing outside of their house shouting,” said Chief [Jeanette] Persons. “It's not that she just walks by, but she will stand out there for a lengthy period of time."
Chief Persons said if Nagbe continues to pray loudly in the streets, she will continue to get fined. But, Chief Persons also comments if Nagbe lowered her voice the problems would go away.
