huge turnout of Patriot Guard Riders for this mission. There were lots of folks lining the road on the way to RNC, but the Patriot Guard group is there to stand and protect the family from the Crazies and lunatics like the Westboro group.
Gunny is interviewed about the Patriot Guard and makes for a great spokesperson. Almost as if he was from central casting, he is also from the Orange Wednesday Flag Ceremony.
The police presence was huge and this was one of the largest numbers of Patriot Guard riders in attendance I have been involved with as well. Police officers from a wide variety of jurisdictions turned out including railroad, airport, university school and most other police agencies from around the state.
