Roughly 200 local Teamsters gathered Monday at a Boston-area church to block picketers from Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funeral of Boston bombing victim Krystle Campbell.
The mother of a missing Missouri baby may not be casting herself in the best light by telling national media that she drank heavily the night her daughter disappeared and other unflattering details, but her honesty shows that she and her family "have nothing to hide," her attorney said.
He said the organization got involved once members of the community outraged at Westboro's threat to picket the funeral contacted the union for help.
"The family deserves a peaceful grieving process that's free from any coward-led group," he said.
