Dead soldier's home vandalized

David MacAnally/Eyewitness News

Kokomo, February 27 - For the family who lives in a modest home in Kokomo, the fatal Iraq attack came last week.

Then the attack at home followed.

Vandals defaced the home of Sgt. Rickey Jones' family. Eggs were thrown and flags were stolen. Sgt. Jones, a Kokomo High School graduate, was one four soldier's with the 101st killed west of Baghdad last week.

So who, one week before his burial in his hometown, would vandalize a fallen hero's house?

Neighbor Robyn Ousley is at a loss to explain. "I have no idea, somebody pretty, pretty awful."

Another friend, Bill Swaggerty, says there is more than vandalism for the family to deal with. They're calling here and saying, 'I'm glad your son is dead' and it's wrong."

The family's neighbors have closed ranks, bringing food and flying flags at half-staff. All are signs of respect for Sgt. Jones.

But there is a threat of disrespect from out of state.

The same Kansas church group that has been picketing soldier's funerals around the U.S. and Indiana will be in Kokomo too. The group claims U.S. soldier deaths are punishment for U.S. tolerance of gays.

Kokomo Police will have extra security and are running extra patrols at the house. Swaggerty, a veteran himself, says he convinced Rickey Jones to join up. He can't believe Sgt. Jones' memory would be attacked in this way. "It's wrong. He would come home on leave. His friends (were) very respectful to my wife and my family. He was a very good kid."

Swaggerty supports a move in the legislature to keep protesters back from military funerals.

Neighbor Ousley agrees. "He just went over there for us. I think it is awful."

Services for Sgt. Jones are set for next Monday. In the meantime Kokomo Police have increased patrols around his family's house.

And they also have the "protest" to look forward to at the funeral if Govenor Daniels does not get off his ass and sign the legislation making it illegal to protest within 500 feet (I believe) of a funeral. It is all ready for his signing, so sign it so this family does not have to go through any more pain on a day that is going to be painful enough.

Hundreds expected for soldier’s funeral

By SCOTT SMITH
Tribune staff writer

Monday’s funeral for Sgt. Rickey Jones, the Kokomo soldier killed Feb. 22 in Iraq, will be moved to Crossroads Community Church, according to Kokomo police Lt. Don Whitehead.

An estimated 300 to 500 veterans from around the country are expected to be on hand for the funeral, which had been scheduled to take place at Shirley & Stout Funeral Home in Kokomo.

The 10 a.m. time for services has not been changed, nor has the young soldier’s final resting place, Memorial Park Cemetery, Whitehead said.

Many veterans are coming to the funeral to pay respects to the family and honor Jones, and to show support of the family in the event protesters show up at the services.

Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., has announced several protests around the nation in coming days, including plans to picket at Monday’s funeral here and the funerals of other servicemen elsewhere.

The church’s Web site said Monday’s protest in Kokomo will be “like the IED America bombed [the church] with in a terroristic effort to silence our anti-gay Gospel preaching.”

“IED” stands for improvised explosive device.

Sgt. Jones, a graduate of Kokomo High School and a member of the Army’s 101st Airborne Division, was killed when a roadside bomb blew up his vehicle.

I can't even concieve of protesting at a funeral.

Truly shameful.
I hope my fellow Hoosiers down-state will make this situation right.

We live in sad times when churches that have done nothing wrong are burned for no reason and churches like this are allowed to run around and interfer with other people's lives like this.

This all comes from fucking cowards who hide behind the freedoms that brave heroes like Sgt. Jones have died to uphold. They don't have the nerve to knock on the Jones families door and run thier stupid fucking mouths. They won't because they are the sorriest pieces of shit on this earth.

I am so looking forward to the day they get thier asses kicked. I will definately celebrate.

Stupidity, even stupidity this extreme, should not be a capital offense.

Nevertheless, the dumbasses calling saying "I'm glad your son is dead" ought to be taken into the town square and horsewhipped for being intolerably stupid.

This is how libbies are. Their self opinion is so high, and they believe their righteousness to be so far superior to everyone elses, that they can call a family who lost a loved one in Iraq and say "I am glad your son is dead!" and still be a hero in their own mind. Liberals are convinced that they are unalterably good while usually posessing not even a shred of actual virtue.

That is why liberalism should be classified as a mental disorder.

How much would it cost to put togather an ad in USA Today with pictures of them at a funeral protesting, and names and where they work, and their spouses names, and phone numbers, etc....

If they are in public, they should have "no reasonable expectation of privacy". Right?

Most all Vietnam vets have seen all of this before. The liberal komikrat left can only hold their "true nature" in for so long and then..............like a pot................it boils over and you have what "We" Nam vets have all seen before. The dimofuck liberals "HATE" soldiers because soldiers fight for the "America" that the kommies and their allies the jahadis are sworn to destroy. Our soldiers kill the allies of the dimofucks...................the talliban,the al kaida,and the hammas mutherfuckers whenever possible.THIS pisses the dims off. Just like in the 60's and 70's when we were killing kommies left and right.............that shit always pisses off the dims.

We will see terrorism against our soldiers conducted by the left on an ever increasing level.It is only just getting started and is a good measure of how desperate the libtards are becoming.

Nothing in the world is as satisfying as kicking the shit out of fucking hippies and left wing asstards.....unless that is shooting them in the head ...in Iraq.....or Afghanistan.

As usual, any derogatory comments against one group of Christians is literally taken to mean all Christians. Take your head out of your ass and realize that these guys take their religion to the extreme just like the radical Muslims. They are no different.

Didn't much sound like you were talking about "one group".

Yes, these people are extremists, and the only difference between them and the assholes we're fighting overseas is that these nutjobs haven't killed anyone (or even threatened to, AFAIK).

THAT is a BIG difference.

That said, I despise them just as much. They make all Christians look bad. Fortunately (and unlike Islam), the overwhelming bulk of Christianity openly and vocally condemns these whackjobs and disassociates itself from them.

I sincerely hope you can see the difference.

Thank you! It's good to see someone around here has a firm grasp on reality. A true Christian would show honor and respect for a fallen soldier that lost their life defending our freedom and probably shed a tear with the family.

The posted a picture recently on the news of a couple low-lifes that protested during a soldiers funeral IN MY HOMETOWN and it make me sick...

An I wouldn't waste the energy or money to egg your house.

Once again, it is proven that it is acceptable to bash any branch of Christianity......

Did you ever stop and think that just maybe, they KNOW that they are just causing problems for the professed Christians, and do it because they despise Chrisitanity?

Just like they despise the conservative party?

I don't think that you every thought of that......

Phelps and crew are neither Christians, or conserative, no matter what people like you and the media try to say they are.
