Burial for a Marine, and the Westboro Baptist Church gets owned

My brother posted a link on face book, so I followed it, and I found an interesting story.

Marine Staff Sergeant Jason Rogers was killed in Afghanistan on April 7th.  He was buried in Brandon, MS on April 14th.  It seems the entire city came out to pay their last respects, and apparently, so did the Westboro Dick-Head Church.  This is copied from the link:

A few days before, one of them (westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed.  Police were called out and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him.  When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.

Rankin County handled this thing perfectly.  There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about, and at great expense to the county.

Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot.  It seems that certain Rankin County pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over.  Police were called out but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out. 

A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in.  Turns out, after a few hours of questioning that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.

The link also had this video:

Pretty cool.  I don't know how much of the story is true, and how much has been embellished, but I thought it was a good read in any case.
