Soldier tackles Westboro Baptist Church member as crowd cheers

Recommended Posts

A member of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church was tackled on Saturday by an angry soldier at a funeral for fallen Army Staff Sgt. Donna Johnson in North Carolina.

?So at the funeral today for Fallen Soldier Sgt. Johnson a Westboro member decided it would be smart to stomp on the American flag,? the blog Guardian of Valor explained. ?A Soldier did not take kindly to that and broke through the line, hitting one of the protesters that was disgracing Old Glory. As he was being arrested, two other Soldiers rescued the flag.?

The Westboro Baptist Church believes that God is punishing the United States because of America?s acceptance of homosexuality, and has gained infamy for picketing the funerals of public figures and military members.

Johnson, 26, was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.

Hundreds of Patriot Guard Riders and others formed a line between the Westboro Baptist Church members and the funeral service.

The Westboro Baptist Church, which only has a few dozen members, is typically drowned out by counter protesters. The biker activist group Patriot Guard Riders has dedicate itself to doing just that.

Johnson?s wife, Tracy Dice, also serves in the military.

All he has to do is claim temporary insanity which any judge would grant for this and he will just get a slap on the wrist.

Can you do that without having any mental health problems?

I feel that all this kind of stuff plays right into the hands of the Westboro Baptist Church. I think instead people should just be super nice to them.

That's why its temporary insanity and not the normal insanity plea Lets say you have a child and you watch someone murder your child. As a result, you go into a rage and kill the person that killed your child that instant. A temporary insanity plea would protect you from jail time. The plea amounts to you not having a mental instability, you were just blinded by rage, and in some cases, justified rage.

You can claim anything you want, then you can have your lawyer wake you up and tell you that a court appointed psychologist is going to find you perfectly normal and testify that you knew what you were doing at the time.

But come on, lets look at the issue for what it is, he barely tackled anyone and was probably sent home with a warning or citation.. so none of this even matters anyway.

Takes real effort to become pariahs across the political, religious and secular worlds and to have them agree on it, but these morons managed it.

I hope somebody blows up WBC. They incite nothing but hate, and they are useless upon this earth.

The WBC were not responsible for DOMA,DADT etc etc etc. The only thing that separate's them from FRC and Liberty Council is the funeral protests.

So you're inciting hate on people that incite hate?

... makes perfect sense.

What these people really need is to wake up and realize how idiotic they are.

Sometimes violence does solve problems.

Sometimes people need to realize hate groups have no rationalization to their hate, and never will.
