      People in Weston, Missouri band together against protesters

      Folks in Weston, Missouri banded together Saturday to protect loved ones who were saying goodbye to a fallen soldier.

      Residents found out that members of the Westboro Baptist Church, planned to protest at First Sergeant C.J. Sadell's funeral Friday.

      In a town of less than two-thousand people, several hundred showed up to show support for the family of First Sergeant Sadell.

      Half of them created a human shield at the funeral home with patriotic music, and an American flag to cover unwanted protesters.

      Westboro Church members disappeared.
