Members of a Kansas ‘church’ that protests at military funerals may have found themselves in the wrong town Saturday.
Shortly after finishing their protest at the funeral of Army Sgt. Jason James McCluskey of McAlester, a half-dozen protesters from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., headed to their minivan, only to discover that its front and rear passenger-side tires had been slashed.
To make matters worse, as their minivan slowly hobbled away on two flat tires, with a McAlester police car following behind, the protesters were unable to find anyone in town who would repair their vehicle, according to police.
Even before the protesters discovered their damaged tires, they faced off with a massive crowd of jeering and taunting counterprotesters.
The Supreme Court is expected to rule on whether or not the hate group’s despicable behaviour is legal.
