George Vogel Arrested for Shooting Pepper Spray at Westboro Baptist Church” Protesters at Marines Funeral
62 year old George Vogel was arrested and booked on 16 counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of felony assault on a police officer for shooting pepper-spray at protesters. Arrested, this dude should have been given a medal and a monetary reward.
Why should he get a medal you ask?
The people that Vogel shot pepper spray at were the reprehensible fools from the Westboro Baptist Church who were protesting at a Marines funeral. Because we all know it is completely appropriate to form a counter protest at a funeral, especially at a military funeral where a brave soldier made the ultimate sacrifice for his /her country. But that is not what the loons at the Westboro Baptist Church are about. They are about them, the publicity and law suits, not God, honor or country.
A motorist fired pepper spray Saturday at a group of demonstrators and counter-protesters outside a funeral for a U.S. Marine in Omaha, Nebraska, police said.
The incident occurred shortly before 10 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) as members of a small Kansas church that protests at military funerals and counter-protesters stood nearly a block away from First United Methodist Church during services for Staff Sgt. Michael Bock, 26, who died August 13 in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.
A man in a Ford-150 pickup truck drove by, extended his arm and sprayed with a large can, police said. His vehicle was stopped a few minutes later.
“Initial indications are he was probably targeting the Westboro Baptist Church” protesters, said officer Michael Pecha, a spokesman for Omaha police.

What a rotten example of a group of hate mongers of intolerance hiding behind the civil liberties of freedom of speech and religion. Do not worry, one day the members of the Westboro Baptist Church will be witness to God’s law. Guess what Westboro Baptist members, you are in for an eternal damnation of a lot more than pepper spray.
What might be even more pathetic than the disgraceful members of the Westboro Baptist Church, is that CNN did an entire story and did not even reference the young Marines name who gave his life for his country. Thanks to Weasel Zippers for having the honor and integrity to do so. The heroes name was Staff Sgt. Michael Bock.
Staff Sgt. Michael Bock died August 13 after bring shot in Helmand province while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom. Bock grew up in Springfield, Nebraska, before moving to Leesburg with his family when he was in high school.
A month after his high school graduation in 2002 Bock went off to Marine boot camp.
Bock leaves behind his wife of seven years and a 3-year-old son, Zander.
God bless you.
