We were all pretty sure this scumbag was guilty...but there wasn't any proof.

There is no excuse for violence like this against innocent children.

The Pierce County Sheifers department wants to know about the money as well. Not sure if this went out with the news (outside of Puget Sound area) but between the hearing last week & Sunday, Josh was giving away the boys clothes & toys, things of his things as well. So to me, that means he plan to do this.

Giving things away is actually a common warning sign of impending suicide. A form of setting things in order before doing the deed.

The Tacoma News Tribune just release that the Westboro jack@$$ are planning to come & protest at the funeral of the boys. My oldest dd, dgd (7) & I will be out with the Occupy Seattle group counter protesting. I'm just sick to my stomach over this

OMG...that is absolute insanity for them to use those babies funerals to further their own hate filled agenda! I hope the exposure backfires on them in a huge way.

Good luck with your counter protest...and stay safe!

Good for you Sam! Yes, I heard this on the news this a.m. Wish there was some way that we could ban him & his hate-speech from our state!

Why are they protesting the funerals of the boys? I thought they protested soldiers funerals because soldiers defend gay rights in a round about sort of way, what the hell do they have to protest about these two little innocent boys? I know everything they do is a huge bizzarro reach of their own deluded thinking, but what is the Westboro version of.......uhm.......logic for the protest?

Because the Governor just signed legislation approving same-sex marriage in WA state. It's the same warped mentality & reasoning. I think that they know this is a high visibility funeral (it's even being televised here)... they'll get lots of free press. I'm hoping the police won't give them a permit.

My dd was able to contact a group of bikers here in Tacoma/Pierce country {they help trying to find missing kids} they are coming & making barrades & manning them to keep them away from the church. So that's good to know.
