BRANDON, MISSISSIPPI HANDLES WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH AT MARINES FUNERAL.

BRANDON, MISSISSIPPI HANDLES WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH AT MARINES FUNERAL.

Congratulations to Brandon Mississippi and all the people who saluted Staff Sgt Jason Rogers, a Marine at his funeral. The Westboro Baptist Church out of Topeka Kansas was going to protest at SSgt Rogers funeral but the Mississippians took care of that. Apparently a few days before the funeral a member of the Westboro Baptist Church was at a Brandon gas station running his mouth. He got his ass kicked. Despite a large crowd in the area no one remembers seeing anything.

On the day of the funeral Rankin County pickup trucks parked directly behind any Kansas licensed cars in the motels. Mysteriously the drivers disappeared until after the funeral was over. Some of the Kansas drivers called the Police but sadly all the wreckers in town were busy so that the pickups couldn’t be towed.

A few of the Westboro Baptist Church members made it to the funeral but were ushered away for questioning about a crime they might have been involved with. They were questioned for a couple of hours and let go.

There is a video shot from the camera in a police car of the people along the funeral route. There are literally thousands of people with their hands over their hearts, American flags, firemen, flags on hook n ladders saluting SSG Rogers. A fitting tribute to a fallen Marine. Semper Fi

I bet the Westboro Baptist Church doesn’t come back to Mississippi for anymore military funerals. This is the way to handle these renegades. I would love for any truckers on the road if they see any Westboro Baptist Church vans to give them all the courtesies they deserve. A four way block in would be a way to safely escort them down the highway.

Maybe it is time for people to show up in Topeka Kansas and give this group a taste of their own medicine.

As a Mississippi native I was really touched when I read about this earlier today. A friend who lives in Brandon said he’d been invited to ride with the Patriot Riders at the funeral but work obligations kept him away.

The Westboro folks can scream all they want about how Brandon’s residents kept them from exercising their First Amendment rights, but they were seen as invaders with an agenda out of keeping with what the people of Brandon felt was appropriate speech.

So Westboro Baptist got stonewalled. I’m just proud of the people of Mississippi for taking action when it needed to be taken. The funeral was a fitting tribute to SSGT. Rogers, and while nothing can replace him, at least the world knows that he was valued and respected.

I just want to SHOUT my support for any and all the citizens of Brandon, Mississippi. As the widow of a Fallen Hero (SFC Bryant A. Herlem, KIA Baghdad Iraq 28APR2006), it has been frustrating to see how the gov’t has chosen to overlook true American values and not protect our Fallen Heroes even though these men and women died protecting them. Today not only am I a proud American, I am a very proud Southerner! We take care of our own!

I was honored to participate as a rider in the escort. As one of the more than 500 bikes that rode, I was humbled by the crowd of patriotic Mississippians who lined the streets and roads most of the way from the funeral home to the Pine Lake Church. It made me sad but proud of the fine young man who made the ultimate sacrifice for his God and country. May God bless the law enforcement who made this an honorable event for the family of Jason. God Bless America and the State of Mississippi !!! David Garrick

To be sure, these ‘protesters’ can exercise their rights anywhere that they like, and I fully encourage them to do so. I also have no problem catching an assault charge when I kick their asses in any time that I see them. Might equals right sometimes, and this is one of those times.

What a touching story about a town banding together to show respect to an American hero, while simultaniously preventing a message of hate and media-seeking lunacy. I love how your town supported each other in comfort, grief for a fallen loved one, and making sure those idiots were unable to make a difficult, tragic situation into something worse. My hat is off to you all, and my heart goes out to the Marine’s family.

Makes me proud to be a natural born Mississippian. And I will proudly show my birth certificate to anyone who questions it.

Amazing that it takes, dare I say, “hicks” from the poorest state in the union to show the other states how it’s done. You can just sit back and let people run over you. Or, you can do something about it.

We may be poor and overlooked. But we ain’t stupid.

Don’t these pinheads realize that it is the service and sacrifice of the men and women of our military, from pre-1776 through today, that allows them to do what they are doing.

Freedom has a price. That price is very expensive. The cost of Freedom is paid for with the lives of those who deserve it more than those they left behind.

I’ve been fighting these rumors since Saturday. No WBC members came to Mississippi, none were beaten up, blocked in the hotel, or arrested. Rumors say there were 4,6, and 20 arrested at locations including the funeral home, church, cemetary, and Taco Bell (they can’t keep the hoax straight). WBC denied it on Twitter Saturday when asked, and if it were true, we would never hear the end of their loud mouths or legal action (many are lawyers). But, everyone’s got their minds made up, don’t confuse them with the facts. I just wish Roy or Don would admit this isn’t from the news, it was taken from a website, which originally was posted anonymously on a sports blog.

To the fellow who says no Whiteboro Baptist Church folks were in Brandon MS. I just know what I find out thru research and thru information from local sources. I wasn’t there so I can’t tell you anymore. I can tell you that the story is a blueprint of how to treat the WBC when they show up in other people’s towns. Maybe the WBC which apparently this guy is hooked up with will find out that people are tired of their crap and are not going to take it anymore. So they should crawl back in the holes under the rocks from which they came and not be caught in the sunshine or things could happen.

It is a cause for concern when law enforcement must become in any way involved in determining when and how the American people shall exercise free speech. It is the most important right we possess.

However, I applaud the citizens of Brandon and surroundings for their peaceful but unequivocal handling of the Westboro Church congregation. And I predict that there will be copycat towns, if the Westboros go on with their wrongheadedness.

To those who said this was fake check the Rankin County News April 14, 2011. They say it happened and no the protestors did not disrupt the funeral but only because of the action of Brandon folks. I have some people claiming to live there that say it is fake and other claiming to live there that says it happened. I have been writing about the Whitesboro Baptist Church for some time and their protests of other military funerals all over the country so this fits their MO. Believe what you will.

It is a sad day in America when we trample people’s rights to honor those who protect our rights.

I do not in any way agree with WBC or their pathetic messages of hate. I think everyone should simply ignore them, much as we ignore other crazy people. For some reason WBC has become famous, and their fame feeds on itself. However, I do advocate for their right to free speech and their ability to protest anything they wish to protest, within the confines of the law. SSgt Rogers died defending the Constitution which grants WBC the right to picket and protest at his funeral. I think we should have honored his sacrifice.

Several of us browsing the message boards posting this story are police officers in the Rankin County area and we would know if any of this actually happened.
While it makes for a nice story, nobody in this county ever laid eyes on a Westboro protester. I’m sure they would have acted stupid if they had shown up, and I’m sure our local folks would have shut them down somehow. But, the truth is that this story is a work of fiction, and keeps growing every time someone re-posts it and adds their own wishful thinking.
The fact that there are dozens of internet sites spreading these rumors is giving the Westboro folks lots of free publicity they didn’t earn though… sigh.

@Dan The April 14 Rankin County News? That was the same day that the Marine’s body arrived on a plane and was escorted to the funeral home. For the reporter to discuss a protest before the body arrived, he must be clairvoyant.

I get the Rankin County News, I was on the escort from the Funeral Home to the Church. There were no protesters.

April 16 on Twitter, Knolaust asked 3 WBC membes if any of them were arrested in Mississippi. All 3 said no (JaelPhelps, MeganPhelps, and MargiePhelps). These are attention hogs and lawyers. If they had been arrested, they would shout and sue. The whole WBC bunch were twittering all weekend, and the Rankin County Jail does not offer internet access to inmates.

One can look up proof at Twitter.com. What proof is there of WBC’s arrest or beating? Facebook and articles like this one which is based on an anonymous posting on an Ole Miss message board. http://nafoom.yuku.com/topic/39495/This-will-bring-a-tear-to-your-eye

For those who don’t understand the 1st amendment…it protects you from your government imposing laws which restrict you. It does not in any way prevent or restrict the way your fellow citizens deal with you. Westboro members have every right to act stupidly, and individual citizens in every town across the country have the right to treat them like the idiots they are. Westboro stupidity, according to the Constitution, has to be tolerated by the government.

It does not have to be accepted and tolerated by individual citizens.

I am from Kansas, but I am a vet’s daughter and wife and a patriot. Not all Kansans act like those protestors from Topeka! In fact, we had a young soldier that was buried here and the protestors threatened to come here. The Patriot Guard came to our town and surrounded the church building where the funeral was being held and then went out and surrounded where he was being buried. Those guys are to be commended for the job they do–God Bless Them. And don’t condemn all Kansans along with those people! God bless the USA and the service people who serve her and their families!

I am a local source. This did not happen. The post above from a local Patriot Rider is a local source. He said it did not happen. A Brandon police officer on a police message board is a local source. He says it didn’t happen. I work in emergency response and have 911 lines coming into my building. Half our staff are ex-local cops and firefighters. They say it didn’t happen.

I subscribe to Rankin County News. There is nothing in there or the Clarion Ledger about any of this although the funeral is covered extensively.

My brother, proudly served in the United States Marine Corp. Thankfully, he came home to us. But many of his fellow Marines have given their lives for our freedom, that so many take for granted. I am appalled that Americans choose to use their freedom, that all these many men and women of all the branches, to protest. No one likes war, but unfortunately it is a reality of this world. I, personally, want to thank the many, many military soldiers, and their families, for paying the ultimate price for the freedom. Instead of all those people in Kansas protesting, they should be thanking the soldiers and their families for allowing them to have their freedom. GOD BLESS AMERICA and THE MILITARY!!!

Thanks to them, most of the worlds turmoil stays out of the wonderful country, we Americans, call home. Instead of the Westboro Baptist Church protesting to soldiers putting their lives on the line for their freedom, they should be going to the funerals of the fallen soldiers and thanking their widows, mothers and family members that lost them, for their sacrifice. I am proud of the Mississippi people for the response they gave the Kansas Westboro Baptist Church. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE FAMILIES THAT LOST THEIR LOVED ONES.

Awesome! That is how a town and country stick together and pay respect to a fallen soldier, a fellow American, a Hero. The people of Westboro apparently haven’t read their bible as they are judging people when that is God’s place to do so. But, having said that, I sure wish I was a fly on the wall when their “day” comes to be judged and God gives them HIS answer.

It has been interesting reading the comments. I wasn’t there so I don’t know if the Westboro church showed up or not. I really don’t care the response I see shows that Americans as a whole think this is a dispicable group. I think other towns will come up with creative
ways to take care of this church if they show up in their town. I hope the Westboro Baptist Church is reading the comments and understand that most people in this country consider them pond scum. If they keep this up someone is definitely going to get their butts kicked and it may happen more than once. I suggest they climb back in their holes and return to Hell.
