DAMN that first amendment.... I'd sign up to see these people fry.
Soldier funeral protester arrested
By Eric Olson, Associated Press Writer | June 6, 2007
OMAHA, Neb. --A member of the Kansas group that has drawn criticism for protesting at soldiers' funerals has been arrested for letting her 10-year-old son stomp on a U.S. flag during a demonstration. She promised Wednesday to challenge the state's flag desecration law in court.
Shirley Phelps-Roper, 49, will be charged with flag mutilation, disturbing the peace and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov said Wednesday.
Phelps-Roper, a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, acknowledged that she allowed her son Jonah to stand on the flag Tuesday -- something she says is protected by the U.S. Constitution.
Phelps-Roper is a daughter of Westboro's founder, the Rev. Fred Phelps. Members have protested at more than 280 military funerals in 43 states since June 2005, she said.
The group says the deaths of U.S. soldiers are God's punishment for a nation that harbors gays and lesbians. Nebraska and 37 other states have laws restricting how close protesters can get to funerals, inspired at least in part by the Westboro protests.
I'm guessing that liberal uber socialist organization, the ACLU will defend their right to stomp on the flag.
Damn those hippie liberal commie freaks for defacing our flag!!!!
