    Westboro Baptist Church pickets Obama's inauguration (abridged)


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     TreyYingst told me, 'When my crew and I got to the location of the picket, I was surprised to see police barricades surrounding the the area at which they were picketing. When asking the questions I had to tune out the hundreds of people passing by who were yelling back at the eight protesters. It takes a lot of mental strength to continue reporting while the person you are interviewing says the President is going to be 'dropped alive into hell.''
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer
