Angry Bikers Chase Westboro Protestor Out Of Joplin

JOPLIN, Mo. (KMOX) –  Three hundred bikers turned out in Joplin over the weekend to turn the tables on a notorious anti-gay church.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas had planned to protest President Obama’s appearance to mark the terrible devestation left behind by the May 22nd tornado.

But only one church member showed up,  and when the bikers found out about it they started to chase after him.

The church protestor needed police protection to escape injury — and get out of town.
