Missouri town turns out to keep Phelps clan away from soldier’s funeral

As if a bell tolled a neighbor’s trouble, folks came running. An hour before the funeral of Army Cpl. Jacob R. Carver, an estimated 2,000 to 3,000 people in Harrisonville, Missouri, lined nearly a half-mile of the street in front of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, making sure Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church/family congregation were crowded out, peacefully kept far from shouting distance of the funeral.
