    Heard about this during the morning show. Reports of another military funeral brings out the Westboro crowd. One guy mouths off and gets the beat shit out of him by some locals, locals gather together at hotels and block all the cars with license plates from Kansas, when the cops show up it seems that all the local tow truck drivers are busy elsewhere and can't get there until the funeral is over.

    And those that actually made it to the funeral were escorted by cops off the scene to answer some questions about "crimes" they "may have" been a part of.

    Bra-fucking-vo Mississippi.

    Hell yeah, take that you fucking douches!

    Trying to disgrace a military funeral (or any other funeral) like that is completely disgusting.

    Now why can't other states/communities grow a pair like them people?

    (I'm out of thumbs up right now).

    Oh, I expect they will. Now that it's happened once, totally unrelated coincidences might start popping up elsewhere. Funny thing isn't it, how these things tend to happen in clumps?

    I suppose I can't really approve based on my principles, but yeah, they were asking for it.

    Sure, great, now when will the lawsuits start? I'm glad these cunts are getting what comes to them, but generally fucking around with a family of lawyers just isn't that smart.

    Well played Mississippi, undermine that very constitution that the young man died for.

    While I respect the intentions, I don't think this is appropriate behaviour for anyone to take against the mentally handicapped.

    ^This, unfortunately. WBC are cunts and trolls extraordinaire, but they are legally entitled to the bullshit they pull. Congrats Mississippi, you've given them about 10 thousand lawsuits for them to pursue for money.

    Funny, and here I thought the first amendment only kept the government from shutting people up.

    First of all; Good for them, & secondly; It's about time.

    If anything like this occurred in England (& it sometimes nearly does with the EDL & co in town) it would be the people attending the funeral who were arrested, not those inciting the whole thing to began with. A shame there aren't more cases like this across the pond.

    As had been said, those assholes live for this sort of thing. They'll make a fortune off of lawsuits and be able to continue their operations. Which mostly consist of provoking people to attack them so they can make more money off of lawsuits.

    Law suits be damned, if more people stood up against them, this shit wouldn't be happening in the first place. It doesn't undermine shit if you show up at someone's funeral, offend a person, and then get the shit beat out of you for it.

    It also doesn't undermine anything if the people of the town decide to blockade the WBC cunts in at their hotels. Sorry, traffics jammed. People are so hard up about wanting to exercise their right to free speech, but no ones about to defend that shit with their own life are they?

    If one of those WBC people showed up anywhere near a funeral of someone in my family, who died fighting in a war, then I'd probably stab as many as I could before the cops shot me. There's exercising your rights, and then there's being right cunts, and they're doing a great job at the latter.

    tl;dr

    Assholes should be punched in the face, etc.

    Just wondering, anyone have a different source for the story? I've done a little googling, and the closest I can find is a story saying that WBB didn't show up at the funeral, but no reasoning on why.

    Channel surfing found Fox having a bit note to say about it, but not much else. Mostly blogs and the like. I only heard about it on the morning radio talk show and laughed my ass off all the way to the store.

    *I feel like I'm about to jinx myself here*

    I am so happy these asshole's have never made a trip across the border and tried to protest the funeral of a Canadian soldier. I don't think the resulting international incident would go over well.

    That's Mississippi's primary newspaper. It doesn't have all the details you want but it is another source. I grew up about an hour away from Brandon, MS, actually.

    And you really think it's more likely that some cops decided to put their careers on the line and open themselves up for massive lawsuits instead of this just being some random civilian making a false statement to the police?

    A video posted on the University of Southern Mississippi newspaper website. Here's a link to the article that goes along with the video.

    Sounds to me like some trolls just got counter-trolled.
