    This is a picture that was taken today of people standing across the street from Judge John Roll's funeral. They are dressed as angels and they are all holding a long stemmed red rose. I just thought it was so cool!!

    I think they were there to counter Phelps and his whelps.

    I also think it is very cool

    They are there as a counter to the WBC loons. They'll be at all the Tucson funerals. The angel wings are designed to help block out the view of the protesters and shield the mourners.

    Great idea, and a nice pic.

    It's a great idea.

    Food can be delivered through the spaces between the bars and the barbed wire.
