At Denison Memorial, Westboro Baptist Church to Strike Again

By Susan Duclos     Feb 23, 2008 in World
Last night hundreds gathered at a vigil for Brianna Denison, the teenage student of Santa Barbara College that was abducted on January 20, 2008, raped and strangled, her corpse being discovered earlier on Feb. 15, to which an autopsy confirmed it was her.
The police believe her murder is linked to attacks by DNA to at least two other attacks on women in the area since October.
The search for her killer has focussed in recent days on a pair of women's panties that were found with her body. The black thong underwear with "Pink Panther" characters had DNA from a woman other than Denison as well as DNA of the serial rapist who kidnapped and strangled her.
The male was from the same man who committed at least two sexually motivated crimes against other young college women in the area over the past four months, Reno police Lt. Robert McDonald said.
Tonight there will be a "Celebration of Life" Memorial being held in memory of Brianna from 6 to 7pm tonight at the Reno Sparks Convention Center.
Enter the Westboro Baptist Church to which reports have previously shown, is a group that runs a website called "God Hates Fags" and often protests at funerals of fallen soldiers.
The group and it's founder, Fred Phelps already has a recent 10.9 million dollar judgment against them for protesting at Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's funeral and Cpl. Snyder's father sued them for invasion of privacy and the jury issued a judgment of 2.9 million dollars along with punitive damages of 8 million dollars.
Tonight this group is planning a protest at the memorial being held for Brianna Denison.
Reno-Sparks Convention Center 4590 S. Virginia St. This is for the memorial service for Brianna Denison. She was the "victim" of a serial rapist's strangulation. We call it the Wrath of God being poured out on a nation of rebels without a cause. You brought this Wrath on your own head, Reno, NV because you (1st) raised your chidren to be dashed to pieces as rebellious, arrogant soldiers of a Doomed nation of perverts and (2nd) when we warned you to not go to Hell like the dead soldiers and OBEY YOUR MAKER, you lawless brutes did not obey your own laws; instead, you allowed criminal, disorderly conduct to take place betwixt our humble, peaceful preachers and your arrogant, filthy-mouthed and violent counter-demonstraters.
On a previous run in with Westboro Baptist Church at a fallen heroes funeral, the citizens of Reno as well as some bikers, did not take too kindly to the the group, as seen via this YouTube clip.
