Mississippi county gets rough with Westboro Baptist Church
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that it has come to this. After the Supreme Court ruled that the hate-filled Westboro Baptist Church clique has the right to protest at funerals, the folks in Rankin County, Mississippi, took justice into their own hands.
Rather than abide by the court’s ruling and make a local ordinance requiring protesters to stay a minimum distance away from funerals, the locals got a little creative in keeping the creeps away from a procession. Specifically, they beat them up, wouldn’t let them out of a parking lot, and detained them for questioning for a mythical crime until the funeral was over.
