Westboro Baptist Church Bees Te Mississippi - And Loses
cm Saturday USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, whe was kilted in action in Afghanistan April T, was buried in
Branden, Mississippi. That, by itself, is a sadly unremarkable -theough certainty and solemn -
occasion for us to mark. And in fact when Sgt. Rogers' body returned to Brandon it was greeted by hun-
dreds, er perhaps even thousands, of who gathered at the roadside to honor the fallen Ameri-
can here. The dashboard camera frem Mississippi state treeper Elmo Townsend' s cruiser gives an indica-
tion of the scene last Thursday.
What is most notable abaut Sgt. Rogers' funeral in Branden, however, is what didn' t happen. You see, the
troglodytes hem Westboro Baptist Church had threatened to spew their poison at Sgt, Rogers' funeral.
But the Westboro meb wasn' t en the scene, and Sgt. Rogers was laid to rest without incident - thank God.
Why weren' t there protestors? Planning ahead by the locals, as it turns out.
From an Ole Miss sports message board, a tidbit information,,,
A couple of days before, ene of them (Westbro molestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and
got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man cerld not give much a prescription who
beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, one
seemed remember anything about what had happened. Rankin County handled this thing perfectly.
There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to
Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking let. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup
trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers
mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was ever. Felice were called but their wrecker service was
running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they cerld tow the trucks so the Kansas plated
cars could get out.
A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have passi-
bly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours m questioning, that they were net involved and they were
allowed to go on about their business, Fred Phelps, the disbarred lawyer and Democrat activist who leads
the Weathers congregation, will undoubtedly pursue seme form of legal action for the way his people were
thwarted in Branden. Let him try. There isn’ t in Mississippi which will see things his way.
This is a template for how to handle the westboro people, It lawsuits don' t work, other means will. What-
ever it takes to keep them from harassing bereaved military families en the day their fallen loved ones are
laid to rest.
This is how we do it in Mississippians
And I dent give a flying fuck it you thumb it up or down.
