[UPDATE 7/12: Phoenix city officials release "fact sheet" and timeline regarding Michael Salman's case.]

Arizona pastor Michael Salman is currently in jail, serving a 60-day sentence, after he hosted Bible studies in his home. In the videos below, Salman shows footage of the police raid of his home in 2009 and also gives a tour of his 4.6 acre property to show why he shouldn't have been fined and jailed (Read more).

In 2010, Salman was found guilty of fire and zoning code violations for hosting Bible studies on his 4.6 acre property, which he has been doing for the past 7 years. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail along with three years probation and ordered to pay a $12,180 fine.

He claims he is a victim of religious discrimination. However, the city of Phoenix said it is a matter of zoning violations, not religious freedom.
