Another Reason I Love Mississippi

Deepest sympathy goes out to the family of SSGT Jason Rogers for their loss. This decorated Marine was taken by combat defending the United States of America. Recently, funeral services were held in Brandon, Mississippi. He was buried with full ceremony and the crowd was estimated to be in the thousands. Semper Fidelis.

To the treacherous Westboro Baptist church group from Topeka: You goons will regret your anti-American actions!!! Jerks like this bunch are proof that Satan exists. Huge congrats out to my fellow Mississippians that thwarted these diabolical protest efforts. If the rest of the country would get off their scared asses and follow suit then this bunch of creeps and cowards might think twice before spewing forth Satanic diatribe.

What happened? Read the explanation posted on an Ole Miss sports message board then watch the video:

A couple of days before, one of them (Westboro protestors) ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his arse waxed. Police were called 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 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.

Thanks out to GregD for a great link!

There is also a video that shows footage from the police escort dash cam, it shows all the folks lined up on the streets showing their respect. Search for it and you will be bawling by the time it is over.
