Westboro Baptist Church Loses in Mississippi

Staff Sgt. Jason RogersOn April 7th, United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant Jason Rogers, 28, of Brandon, Mississippi, was killed while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. His body was flown home last week to be laid to rest during a 3pm funeral last Saturday. Along US 80, hundreds of folks stood to pay respect, as witnessed from the video taken from the dashboard camera (see below) from the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

While this event is worthy of a news article all of its own, what didn’t happen that day is perhaps most notable.

Prior to Staff Sgt. Rogers funeral, the festering assholes from the Westboro Baptist Church had threatened to show up and picket and protest like they’re notorious for. Fortunately for the family and friends, however, they never showed up.

Why weren’t they there? It seems that a little old-fashioned plannin’ by the locals took care of that:

A couple of days before one of them (the Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to 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 the county.

Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas license plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over. Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could 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 possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.

The piece of shit leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, will likely try to bring legal action for the things that happened in Brandon, Mississippi, that day. If this had this happened in Mitchell, I’m fairly certain that no jury would see things his way and, hopefully, no jury in Mississippi will either.

Its a shame that scumbags like this have the freedom of speech because of heroes like Staff Sgt Rogers ultimate sacrifice. They will get what they deserve in the end.....

Absolutely stellar. Nicely handled all around, and a great turn out of respect from this town. Well done.

Cheers for Rankin County. I hope that people all around the country begin treating Westboro with the respect they deserve, which is none. Like Rankin County did, let's see Westboro treated with the same respect with which Westboro treats our fallen military heros. Zero. Fuck Westboro and their worship of hate.
