Funeral services for three of the police officers killed in an ambush in downtown Dallas on July 7 have been set. Details are below.
Westboro Baptist Church announced on its webpage that it plans to be in Dallas to protest during this week. The “church,” listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, usually lists its protest plans here. As of this writing, Dallas is not on the schedule, but organizers want to be ready to shield family members from having to see the group’s hate signs. Members of the DFW Sisters have expressed interest in being angels who block the view of protesters from family.
Funeral services have been set for Lorne B. Ahrens, Michael J. Smith and Brent Thompson. Services for officers Patricio Zamarripa and Michael Krol are pending.
