Vigilante Pepper Sprayer Disperses Westboro Baptist Protest

You know the assholes from Westboro Baptist Church who protest everything with "God Hates Fags"? They were picketing a funeral in Nebraska for a Marine killed in Afghanistan when a man drove by and fired pepper spray. Hero?

George Vogel was arrested yesterday after he drove by the protest in his pickup truck and "sprayed a large amount of mace into the air from an industrial-sized container." He's being charged with 16 misdemeanor assaults, a felony assault on a police officer and child neglect because his son was in the truck. Vogel hit counter protesers too, and Shirley Phelps-Roper of Westboro said, "Nobody got sprayed at all from our group, but the entire bunch of rebels and the cops did."

Not that we would ever condone any sort of vigilante action like this, but it is pretty funny. And next time, watch which way the wind is blowing, buddy. You don't want any more collateral damage.
