McLennan County Sheriff gives stern warning to Westboro Baptist

Posted:
WEST -

The McLennan County Sheriff has a stern message for groups looking to protest the funerals of victims of the West explosion. He says it will not happen without consequence.

The Westboro Baptist Church from Kansas is one group that announced on their Twitter a day after the explosion that they will protest any West funerals. They say their intentions are "not out of hate or spite, but will warn you out of love. Before all are destroyed!"

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara says they can try, but it will not be tolerated.

"Any attempt by any group or organization to disrupt the funerals of any of our victims in this tragedy will be dealt with swiftly and prosecuted to the full extent of the law," McNamara said.

McNamara says he has the backing of district attorney Abel Reyna on the matter.

Thursday there will be a public memorial at the Ferrell Center at Baylor for the victims of West.
