    If the Westboro Baptist Church wants to cause a scene at a funeral, then let them... But they should know that if you look hard enough for trouble, then you should be prepared to defend yourselves against what you start... Where I live, they would be sorry if they pulled a stunt like this... Like the sain goes FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE/VIOLENCE WITH VIOLENCE !!! There was a funeral for a veteran that gave his life for this country and a bunch of MORONS picketting the war outside the grounds, but making alot of niose during the services.. Well when the services were over and the family had left, they paid dearly for their mistake.. We not only had the Veterans from past wars but also had the Hell's Angels to deal with their Bull-S–t... OUCH (they said) then they went to our local jail for inciting a public disturbance!!! Take action people of Ariz..

    Ive heard the saying 'fight fire with fire', Helen. Im pretty sure the violence reference was actually 'violence begets violence.' Not sure thats the best advice. .
