    Angry More WBC Shit: Boy Stomps Flag At Soldier's Funeral, Mom Arrested

    http://www.nbc5i.com/news/13454138/detail.html
    Pair Are Part Of Anti-Gay Church That Protests Funerals

    POSTED: 12:44 pm CDT June 6, 2007

    OMAHA, Neb. -- A woman was arrested in Bellevue, Neb., on Tuesday during the funeral for a fallen soldier.

    Shirley Phelps-Roper was arrested on suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allegedly allowing her 8-year-old son to stomp on an American flag.


    Shirley Phelps-Roper
    (hell no, I wouldn't hit that!!!)


    Phelps-Roper is a member of a Topeka, Kan., church that conducts anti-homosexual picketing at funeral services for U.S. soldiers.

    Hundreds of people packed Bellevue streets Tuesday morning to pay tribute to a firefighter and soldier. Spc. Bill Bailey was serving in the National Guard in Iraq when he was killed by a roadside bomb.

    Police said the group to which Phelps-Roper belongs had a permit to protest 300 feet from Bailey's funeral.

    Bellevue Officer Joe Gray, who made the arrest, said that at first the group brought out a couple of members' own American flags.

    "The arrestee, Ms. Phelps-Roper, put one around her waist. The second one was given to a 10-year-old, who put it on the ground and started kicking it in the area they were protesting," Gray said.

    Nebraska law states that it is a Class 3 misdemeanor when a person "intentionally casts contempt or ridicule upon a flag by mutilating, defacing, defiling, burning or trampling upon such flag." The law was passed in 1977.

    "It appears the adults weren't stepping on the flag because they knew it was a violation of the law. But they allowed the children to go ahead and do that," Gray said.

    Phelps-Roper said she believes she has the right to use the flag as a symbol, and said Nebraska's law is outdated.

    "We're going to challenge that statute," she said. "That statue should have been repealed."

    Gray said the arrest wasn't personal and has nothing to do with his beliefs. He said he's simply doing his job.

    "It's state law, so we were enforcing the laws of Nebraska," the officer said.

    Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov said the words from the group are fighting words, which are not protected speech.

    I've been waiting for CPS to step in and take the kids away. Maybe this will be the pebble that starts the avalanche?

    I wonder what contributed to her delinquency.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    from what I've seen and read about this westboro church, if they ever step foot in my town and pull the shit they have pulled my career and freedom would be done. I honestly would be in jail I would make sure I'd hurt one of them and make them remember somehow and you all would remember me as the cop who fucked up the wbc cult...I am absolutely disgusted by their actions , un grateful americans get the fuck out of my country. absolutely vile.

    Thank God for lEDs(Improvised Explosive Devices)

    God Himself Has Now Become America's Terrorist, Killing
    and Maiming American Troops in Strange Lands for Fag Sins
    .

    WBC to picket funeral for Army Pfc. Matthew A. Bean -
    at 9:15 a.m., Fri., June 8 - at North River Community
    Church, 334 Old Oak Street, Pembroke, Mass.


    $'For there fell down many slain, because the war was of God."
    I Chron. 5:22. God has irreversibly cursed America.

    America bombed our church with an IED made by fag
    students at Washburn Univ. in Topeka. In His
    retaliatory wrath, God is killing Americans with
    Muslim IEDs: "Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and
    do my prophets no harm." 1 Chron. 16:22. "For it is
    written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the
    Lord." Rom. 12:19. A Sovereign God says: "See now
    that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I
    kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; neither is
    there any that can deliver out of my hand." Dt. 32:39.

    We've turned America
    Over to fags;
    Theyre coming home
    In body bags.

    The Dover Factor. They come night and day, steel-gray cargo planes, bringing IED
    dead. America became WBC's terrorist. Now God Himself is America's Terrorist.
    "And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand
    and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great
    wrath." Jer. 21:s.
    When the barbaric Babylonians were at the gate,
    Kine Zedekiah sent messengers to Jeremiah seeking.
    helpfrom God. Too late. h a e l had sinned awa?
    her day of grace. Jeremiah brought God's answer:
    "Not only will I no longer help you - I will fight
    against you. I will help the Babylonians. I am now
    your Enemy. I will not spare you, neither have
    pity, nor mercy." Jer. 21:l-7. Even so, America.
    You bombed our church and instituted a 15-year
    reign of terror against us - for warning you of fag
    sins. America is now in God's eternal cross-hairs.

    These fruitcakes are cordially invited to attend a funeral service in the Great State of Louisiana. I'll be waiting on them.

    They can shout, stomp on whatever they want, chant, sing, and hold their hate-filled signs. They can curse America, me, whomever they want, and display their ignorance...

    +100 Just looking over some of the shit on there website is enough to get me going. These are some sick SOB's saying shit like "Thank God for IED's".
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I cannot stomach going to their website.
    I think we should fly them all over to Iraq and just leave them there with a gigantic american flag stapled to their eyeballs with "I f'd your mother" scribbled on their asses.
    well...
    umm anyway.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    There are a couple things you need to know about their tactics.

    They often say they will be someplace, and not show up. They still get all the publicity.

    They made threats to show up to a funeral in one of our contract cities. It's a city where western heritage still runs strong, and while many were disgusted, they were kinda looking forward to the opportunity to "handling" them.

    The Patriot Guards showed up in force as well. I don't mind telling you, if I didn't have to work that day, I would have gone to support the family myself.

    Their income is often from lawsuits, I wouldn't be surprised if there is an element of extortion as well.

    Remember the Amish school victims? They threatened to picket that funeral, if they didn't get media coverage.

    They welcome violence, as they want to sue anyone that touches them.

    I'd just make sure that some landmines were in place across from where they were wanting to picket.

    And if they like IEDs, I'd be more than happy to let them love one a little closer.

    I see on their web site the plan on going to one at Arlington on friday. I hope they do but I don't think they have the BA11S.
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

    I will not give them the attention they want by going to their website or commenting on them further than this.

    In the words of lewisipso Go ahead and sue me, but your gonna have to earn it cause I don't give out freebies. That would be one law suit that I would gladly take, they won't be my first and they probably won't be my last.
    Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    I'm not surprised a bit at what PDawg said though - It would be just like them to try to finance their ministries with out-of-court settlements. Heaven help us if people actually contribute to their cause!!!
