A war veteran, Ryan Newell, who is a double amputee has been charged with stalking members of Church in Kansas. The Church members routinely protest at the funerals of dead soldiers holding up signs saying statements like “Thank God for dead soldiers.” The Church members state that dead soldiers are a sign of God punishing Americans for a society full or homosexuality.
Newell has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit aggravated battery, stalking, impersonation of a law officer and many other misdemeanors. The bail was set for $500,000. Newell’s defense attorney is working diligently to get the bail reduced.
