  • Protestors to be at funeral of Hatak Yearby

    It is with a heavy heart that I am telling you that the police department has been informed that protestors will be at the funeral for Hatak. The Patriot Guard will be there to shield the family from them but it is a sad thing that this is happening.

    Hatak's funeral will be Monday morning at 11am at the High School Auditorium. Due to the fact that it will be at the school, it does not fall under the protection of the new Funeral Protection law so they have to be allowed to protest. It is also not on Indian Land so it does not have the protection of Indian Law such as we had for the funeral of Cpl Joshua Ware in Apache, OK.

    I ask that anyone who can make it down to Marietta on Monday please do so. A firm show of support will mean more to the family than the handful of crazy people who show up to protest.

    If anyone is interested in more details they can email me directly at [email protected]

    Thats just messed up.

    Let that happen near me, Ill follow the MFs home. No room for protestors at ANYfuneral for ANY person no matter who they are or what they did, good or bad, right or wrong, in their eyes or your eyes.
    There are 2 types of people in the world...
    Really stupid people who think they are smart
    Really smart people who think they are smart.

      It is sad that others cannot let somone pass in peace.

      thoughts of strength go to you as you try to gather support for this family.
      I will not be there in person but my mind and heart is with you.

      Here are the words to a song for now it is all I can offer

      it seems to fit the situation you are going through with these protesting people.
      they really don't seem to have any compassion for anyone else but thier own needs

      You want more, and still more,
      Until you get more than you ever bargained for.
      Now its plain, clear as rain,
      I've seen your symptoms many times before.

      Lying on your bed of pain
      What will you have now?

      What are riches untold in a life without compassion?
      For there's no winter as cold
      as a life without compassion.
      There's no prescription that's sold
      that can heal you like compassion.

      Well you tried and you cried,
      And let your disappointment make you hard inside.
      You have doubt, you reach out,
      Still you're the only one you care about.

      Hiding in your sack of woe
      What do you need now?

      For there is nothing so sad
      as a life without compassion.
      And even love has turned bad,
      it was love without compassion.
      And you don't need what you had
      'Cause you did not have compassion.

      Dying on your bed of pain
      What will you have now?

      You'll get no judgment from me,
      I can only feel compassion.
      And if that's what you need,
      I will give you my compassion.
      Just don't forget about me
      'Cause we all need some compassion.

      Open up your heart
      so you can start to feel compassion.
      Get down on your knees,
      pray to heaven for compassion.
      Everybody needs compassion.
      If you want to be healed
      then you know you got to feel compassion.

      If you want to hear a snipet you can here it on all

      Here in Michigan I know that they were working on a bill for this thing but it only keeps the idiots 500 feet from the funeral
      its just not enough

        You know... people need to write editorials to the papers about how they feel about protestors at a funeral when they are not asked to be there.. especially those close to this man. This is in very poor taste and disrespectful to the family.
        Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear... just sing, sing a song.sigpic

          What would motivate these people to pull this crap?

          I am not a fan of the war in Iraq, I don't support it or the adminstration that caused it... but... it isn't these men and women that are there's fault. They are doing the job they signed up for, they have my support, they do what is asked of them in the name of freedom and the job... they didn't deploy themselves there... they didn't say hey, lets send ourselves to be the victims of roadside car bombings, kidnappings, ambushes, etc. They are doing a job, I support them... always... irregardless of whether I support the policy that put them there in the first place.

          If you have a problem with the policy... picket the policy makers, protest to your hearts content... but to protest a soldier killed in the line of duty for doing their job... just plain sick... May creator have pity on them when they reach the next world... because I won't! To interupt that funeral rite is something I would never play with in a millon years, and they are dang lucky that any of them aren't added to the burial list.

          I became a singer because I love to sing... and to feed my addiction to cough drops!

            They are'nt trying to insult the families I'm pretty sure.. but use his death as another point in their cause... but it's disrespectul if the family does'nt ask them to be involved.

                I live in Lawrence, KS, and the group protesting soldier's funerals is from Topeka, KS, about 20 minutes from here. The group is a religious group led by Fred Phelps who is the biggest homophobe in the world. He is traveling around with his family and group protesting the funerals of soldiers killed in Irag, saying that they died as a punishment from God for serving in a military that accepts gay people. His big slogan is "God hates fags." So his protests have nothing to do with the policies of this war, whether he believes in the cause or not, his only agenda is to spread his hate as far as possible.

                He is truly a sick man. He is using the grief of families as a means to demonstrate the hate in his heart. I hope that the Patriot Guard is able to do their job and keep him away from the Yearby family. They are the nicest family and they are in our prayers everyday.

                  In the fall of 2005, legislators in Oklahoma introduced the Oklahoma Funeral Picketing Act, which prohibits such protests within one hour prior to and two hours after funerals. Gov. Brad Henry signed the measure into law on March 6, 2006.

                  Let them protest in jail!!

                    its just nuts that people would use somone elses moment of grief as a platform for whatever cause they are against.

                    if they would just take the time to think before they acted, or put themselves in the grieving families shoes, they might see how wrong it is protesting a funeral.

                    no matter what or who it is that has passed.

                      Has anyone heard how things went today? I have been concerned for the family and pray that it went well. These are dispicable people that could do such things to a grieving family! I hope that the law was enforced and the Patriot Guard was helpful.

                        My daughter called right after the funeral and said that the police made the protesters leave. I didn't know that OK signed that law into effect. We were relieved to hear that the family didn't have to deal with that. If it was Fred Phelps group, he has a bunch of daughters and they are all lawyers, so they usually know what they can get away with and what they can't. I'm glad OK has that law.

                            OH good I am glad they were asked to leave. That is a good thing to hear. May he rest in peace now and not have to 'fight' any more wars up there. I agreed with all that who posted on here. Things like that are too sacred to deal with intruders like that. Some people have no respect. Its just sad to know that people have to use things like that to just be 'noticed'. I am just glad it wasn't some native activist group. :D. Well our prayers and thoughts to the family. May all our fallen native soldiers rest in peace, especially this memorial day. Including all our warriors who fought so hard for our rights, lands, and keeping our family/traditions alive this long. You will not be forgotten..............
                            You have crossed my path, You will never be forgotten......

                              No native group would ever pull something like this... we have too much respect for our warriors that have served... whether we agree with the political idiolgy that sent them there or not, we respect them for doing their job and defending our freedom.

                                what are some of the ways that you deal with your anger and the person you're angry at? i've tried the deep breathing, listening to soft music, taking a walk, sleeping in the other room, thinking about worst things that i could be mad about but it doesn't help me.

                                I was just wondering what all you mothers have done to deal with depression during pregnancy. How did you cope with the depression and is it unusual to feel depressed during this time? Your thoughts and opinions are welcomed..

                                Thank you
