Okla. Residents Refuse to Help Hate-Spewing Westboro Baptist Church Members After Tires Slashed

Several members of Westboro Baptist Church -- best known for their despicable "God Hates Fags" protests -- showed up in McAlester, Oklahoma, over the weekend to picket outside the funeral of Army Sgt. Jason James McCluskey. When they returned to their car, they found that the front and rear tires had been slashed.

What happened next was pure karma: "[A]s their minivan slowly hobbled away on two flat tires, with a McAlester police car following behind, the protesters were unable to find anyone in town who would repair their vehicle," Tulsa Worldreported.

What's more, Assistant Police Chief Darrell Miller told the local paper that a counter-protest of some 1,000 people showed up at the funeral to taunt and jeer at the half-dozen church members.
