Mizzou students protected Michael Sam from seeing church protesters
Their idea: Make a human wall to block out Westboro, a huge line of solidarity between their classmate and the Westboro stench.
"A single line, arm-in-arm, a sign of One Mizzou[i],[/i]" they wrote on Facebook. They called it #StandWithSam. And they made up 1,000 buttons to give out.
It wasn't nearly enough.
By 1:30 p.m. Saturday, along Stadium Boulevard, an estimated 2,000 people had come, forming a line that stretched almost half a mile long.
