    I really wish some good samaritan would offer a free "tune up" to their bus and forget to reinstall the breaks. Especially in some mountainous terrain such as oh I dont know Arizona and then let the terrain and gravity take care of the rest.

Nice. When asked about the number of deaths, he got the number incorrect. He seemed more interested in preaching about "vitriol" from various sources that "caused this".

    He doesn't know what caused it, he didn't even know the basics of the situtation or much about the on going investigation. His job is to present the facts as they are, and answer questions about the investigation going forward, not make jokes and keep talking about useless crap.

    So yes, he's a baffoon. Hopefully the FBI or the Marshals take over the investigation.
    I think that anyone engaging in name calling ought to be able to spell the derogatory name, at a minimum.

    The same thing they always are "protesting"; that the deaths were punishment from God for there being homosexuals in the U.S. And no, I did not make that up. Their "reasoning," not mine.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    They're trolls with law degrees. Their goal is to get everyone riled up so people fight back and then they can sue. Wash, rinse, repeat. My guess is they believe very little of what they spew (at least the organizers, anyways).
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    It is a small cult, made up largely of family members, and not affiliated with any other church or religious organization.

    Usually they protest when the victim is a homosexual. I don't see the connection here

    No, they've been protesting the soldiers funerals. Protest isn't really the correct term. They aren't really protesting that funeral perse, they're protesting the country's "tolerance" and at soldiers funerals and obviously at things like this, they realize they can be obnoxious and draw the most attention.

    They hijack any high profile funeral that might get media coverage to publicize their agenda.

    I've heard several biker gangs attend these funerals as well (at least the ones were they protest soliders killed in action), parking their bikes arround the protesters, then rev their engines loud enough to drown them out.
