The truly vitriolic and hateful Westboro Baptist Church, most infamous for protesting military funerals, is planning to protest the funeral of 9-year-old Christina Green. Green was murdered Saturday during the horrific shooting that took place in Tucson, Ariz. killing 6 and wounding 14. Fortunately, citizens of Tucson are stepping up to counter the disgusting group. Mark Finelli, an Iraq War Veteran and 9/11 survivor has called veterans and citizens from all over the country to come to Tucson and block as a human shield the members of Westboro from getting anywhere near the family and friends of Green during funeral services Thursday.
“We need numbers there to block these Westboro people,” Finelli said in a phone interview.
