Westboro Baptists pepper sprayed

I’m surprised somebody has not tried this or worse before. Westboro Baptists pour acid in the open wounds of the grieving. It just a matter of time until they piss the wrong person off.

A 62-year-old man has been arrested after he allegedly tried to fire pepper spray at members of the radical Westboro Baptist Church as they protested the funeral of a U.S. Marine.

Michael Bock. The 26-year-old Marine was killed in combat in Afghanistan's Helmand Province on Aug. 13.
