McALESTER, Okla. -- Kansas church members who travel the region to protest at military funerals have been given less than a rousing welcome at McAlester, Okla.The Tulsa World reports that a half-dozen protesters from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., showed up Saturday in McAlester at the funeral of Army Sgt. Jason James McCluskey. After coping with what police said was more than a thousand counterprotesters, the church members found their minivan had flat tires on both the front and rear wheels on the passenger side.Police said the tires had been slashed.Officers said the church members were unable to find anyone to fix the flats in McAlester, and had to call a flatbed service truck to transport the van to a Walmart several miles away.
Gosh, who would have expected that McAlester would be such a hotbed of vandalism. What a shame that no one could be found to fix the flats.
Maybe this free speech stuff still has consequences.
I wouldn't encourage violence against these good Christian folks but they might be facing a run of bad luck.
