38. It has nothing to do with Shepard
this has been his deal since sometime this summer. He protests here every day, many locations, many times and this summer he added those IED signs and they go right along with the anti gay signs at every single protest. They have been dragged all over the country to soldiers funerals and all the other protests. This has nothing at all to do with Shepard, it has every thing to do with him needing more attention. Same with his 9-11 signs.

As I said to you up thread. I have no problem with the FBI investigating this but I don't think it is anymore of a threat there that it is anywhere else and this sign is old, at least for us here in Topeka. Whatever.
