Video producer was on one of six vessels involved in raid
PORTLAND, Maine A Maine video producer recalled hearing shots amid the chaos that broke out as Israeli troops raided the aid flotilla he was on that was attempting to break Israels blockade of Gaza.
Scott Hamann of South Portland arrived in Maine late Friday night, five days after the flotilla was intercepted by Israeli troops, resulting in the deaths of nine pro-Palestinian activists.
In a phone interview with The Associated Press, Hamann said troops that landed on the boat he was on fired high-powered paintball guns and threw a stun grenade that hit him on the foot before exploding behind him.

He should take two aspirin and whine about his stupidly tomorrow.
Stupid is as stupid does.
Paintball guns? High powered paintball guns ???
LMAO! Some "journalists" are just too stupid for words!
I believe every word of this and am sobbing in sorry even as I type.
Well, damn. I was hoping it was an Oregon Portland man.
I’d have been OK with Israel sinking every one of those “flotilla” vessels; with all hands lost to the sea.
So Scott, who was this missing, beaten American man? Please name me some names. Where is the outcry for the “disappeared” man’s return? Where is his crying family begging the eeeeevil Israelis for his release?
Or did you just hallucinate him.
He no longer practices his faith because he has no faith. Only a political agenda. He is, at the least, a terrorist enabler. That's his faith.
Im doing this because its my people who are perpetrating this tragedy, he said. I feel it is imperative we do something to stop it.
Israelis are not your people . . . you have disavowed them. Hamas terrorists are now your "people."
paintball guns and stun grenades... on ships threatening their country... which could be bringing missiles or worse...
i say, give Israel the new ‘restraint’ award
if it were me, i’m fairly certain i would have let it be know any ship within a certain area would be torpedoed and sunk. then again, if it were me, i’d be begging for the chance to empty the sands and grab more land.

He got a free airplane ticket home when he was deported. What’s he bi**hing about?
Assault rifle paintball guns?
You don't get to set the rules, moron...
What's the line I've seen posted? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
...and the paper, reporting this as a straight story...one more step toward a well-deserved death.
