Petition Closed

Prevent the Westboro Baptist Church from protesting Sandy Hook funerals.


It has come to the attention of the people of Reddit that the WBC plans to picket (protest) the funerals of Newtown, CT.


After discovering that certain laws exist that can prevent this event from unfolding, we are seeking your support to help bring the-somehow-needed attention to put a fence between the WBC and the affected community.


Normally these events are denied interference because they involve military protests -- these are usually the funerals targetted by the WBC. Since there is no political or military connection in this tradgedy, we need to make sure they stay in the clear from these insensitive protests. 


We have the opportunity to do something good for this community, is there any more to be said?
