I wonder how cooperative these people really were.
Yeah really. I mean the nerve of a lowly American citizen to take offense at an nighttime armed bording.
Private property rights? 4th Amendment? Ptthhhh. They're the United States Coast Guard and they'll do whatever the hell they like!
What do these people think this is anyway? A free country?

("Owning" property in the US just means you have one less landlord.)
There are laws on the water. Coast Guard does do boardings. You know that if you own a boat. My father has owned a boat his entire life and has had several boardings. Never felt violated. Part of the deal when you own a boat. Part of the job if your in the Coast Guard.
All I'm saying is, there is no proof that this article isn't an exaggeration of two vindictive boat owners who we don't know, weren't out of line themselves. Before I would jump to a conclusion and make negative comments of the Coast Guard, I would want some proof that it's fact.
