Brandon, Mississippi was USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers’ hometown. He was killed in action in Afghanistan April 7th and buried in Brandon. He was 28 years old. The cretins from Westboro Baptist were not a part of his final resting place, although they tried. After all the years of war, emotions are still raw. I personally do not know anyone lost in Afghanistan or Iraq, but I was not prepared for the deep, deep sadness that set in while watching this video – one of many that I have watched. Read the Westboro story below the video. PLEASE SEE AN IMPORTANT UPDATE HERE.
American boys hate to lose

USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers Laid to Rest (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.
I found this story at Fox Nation which links to the original source The Hayride. When I first posted the story, readers had crashed their site. In the meantime Thanks also to Fox News. Thanks to the people of Rankin County, Mississippi for your inspiration and patriotism.
