Police Ask Protesters to Protest Peacefully

The Sheridan Police Department is aware of claims by this group [the Westboro Baptist Church] that they will be in Sheridan to protest at this funeral. This group has made that claim previously for funerals of Wyoming Veterans and has not shown up. There is a state statute that requires that any protesters must stay 300 feet away from any funeral or cemetery. The Police Department intends to enforce that.
