Across the street from the church where family and friends gathered to mourn, said to number in the “thousands,” and lay to rest Judge John Roll, stood the Tucson Angels, each holding a red rose. A day earlier the same angels stood outside the same church, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, to shield those mourning the loss of 9 year old Christina Taylor-Green from a possible protest by members of the Westboro Baptist.
The Tucson Angels are a “biker group” and part of “Angel Action,” organized by Christina Gilmer.
Judge Roll and Christina Taylor-Green were both shot down in cold blood in a Safeway parking lot by Jared Lee Loughner, according to eye witnesses. Three others also died. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was severly wounded with a bullet to the head. Authorities believe Giffords was targeted for assassination. Source
