    A local soldier lost his life in the line of duty recently and it appears that Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church will be here protesting tomorrow morning.

    Anyone had these people show up in their community before?

    The first amendment is a wonderful thing, but I'm pretty sure this isn't what it was meant to protect.

    Do you know if the Patriot Guard is going to be there? If they are, the family will not even know the Phelps Klan is in the city. From what I understand, they do a fantastic job of sheilding the family.

    They were up here in Cameron not too long ago. Too many PG members here to even worry about the Phelps crew.

    I'm not sure if the PG is showing or not. There is another group that I think is bringing 50 or so people and I'm sure a BUNCH of people from here will be present.

    I'm personally not too worried about it. I don't agree with anything they have to say, but unfortunately it is their right and it has been upheld in every court case that has been brought. There were arguments in the US Supreme Court last month on the issue but no opinion yet. I'm really not a fan of people who love free speech.....unless they don't agree with it.

    To each their own. I will be ignoring them rather than give them any satisfaction of knowing they bother me.

    The Westboro gang showed up in Kirksville for the first funeral several years ago, but were a no show at the last one a few months ago even though they said they were coming. Patriot Guard showed up at both funerals in very large numbers and blocked them the first time.

    They were here in Lamar recently. PG was here and enough local support so it was a non-issue. I -think- the Patriot Guard has a website that you can check to see where they are committed to showing up - but not %100 sure about that.:)

    If this is SFC Sadell's funeral at Weston, PG will be there.

    They came to my buddies funeral here in eureka back in 06. He was Kia in Iraq. Scout sniper team leader. Eureka fire department surrounded them with fire trucks and about fifty patriot guard riders rode circles around them during the entire ordeal. I would like to do very bad things to each and every member of that church.
