Westboro Baptist Church (Video)
I drove the funeral today to see the lunatics of Westboro Baptist Church protest outside of an innocent victims funeral. Luckily Huntsville had their act together and pretty much thwarted their insanity. That sultry sounding voice you hear is yours truly.

I know the video is pretty bad quality but here is the jist of it. Me and a buddy drove by the funeral this morning. The first time we drove by the fools from Westboro Baptist church (all 10 of them) where about a block down and on the other side of the street from the church. There was already a pretty hefty amount of police directing traffic. The funeral hadn't started yet and neither had the protestors. There were a few from the Patriot Guard roaming around but as it turned out they weren't needed. As soon as the protestors picked up there signs and went to the spot they wanted to stand and be fools, Huntsville city moved two buses in front of them so that you literally had to be 100 yards down the road to see any of them. There were other counter protestors around with encouraging signs and a few veterans that just wanted to counter anything that Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church did. It turned out o.k. The real test will be tomorrow though. The church the funeral was at this morning was farther away from the neighborhoods than tomorrows funeral. I'm not sure if I'll drive by that one and try to take pictures and bad video. I'll think about it.
