Way to go Harrisonville, MO!
There was a brief scuffle Tuesday morning between members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church and hundreds of people who turned out to support the family of a Missouri soldier killed in action, reported KMBC in Kansas City.
Jacob Carver, 20, was killed recently by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. His funeral is being held Tuesday in Harrisonville, Mo..Many people said they were attending Carver’s funeral to block protesters from the Topeka, Kan., church.
There appeared to have been some shoving between some of the protesters and church members. Police were able to break up the incident. At one point, the van belonging to Westboro members was surrounded. But they were able to leave the area without any further confrontation.
And that’s how we take out the trash!
To the family and friends of Jacob Carver – prayers and thoughts coming your way. Jacob is a hero. May God grant you comfort and peace.
