BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon by Occupy Boston protesters.
The woman was walking to the train and said protesters spit on her twice, called her foul names and even threw a water bottle at her.
Now, the Coast Guard is warning all staff working on Atlantic Avenue to avoid those protesters while in uniform.

It’s the 1960s anti-war Left all over again.
They are showing themselves more openly. Every little incident keeps tipping the undecideds away from this clusterfrack.
It will collapse under the weight of their own personality.
In fact, the whole protest stems from lack of education They have no understanding of our society works. They'll tell you all about the evil white man though.
This is a significant sign of the end of our civilization. I think the Soviets beat us, after all.
yea that will gain more favor .
These people are idiots, they have no clue what so ever what they are there for, they have no real goals which can be achieved and now they ruin areas, bring unsanitary conditions, spitting on a uniformed woman and costing tax payers more money.
I know exactly where the coast guard is in Boston and that area along with the north end used to be a great place until the elitist yuppies moved in and started to complain about roads being closed for the feast’s etc.
30 years ago these smelly layabouts would never have been anywhere near that area due to the mafia but now all is changed.
The Coast Guard advises their uniformed members to RUN AWAY.
God bless them for their spontaneity, Its young, its spontaneous, its focused and its going to be effective.
Nancy Pelosi 10/6/11
Cue Monty Python, "Run away....run away.."
The Coast Guard should avoid them if they happen to fall into Boston Harbor.
A group of Marines should make it a point to walk back and forth in front of these morons. Let’s see who is spitting then. And then the protesters will be spitting—spitting teeth!.
Members of our military are not allowed to defend themselves against this type of attack. They will face NJP for fighting back. This is where we come in. Our men and women in uniform are out and about taking out the worlds trash...we, as citizens, need to be ready and willing to take out this trash for them...I for one will stand tall in front of a judge for beating the crap out of a hippie that spits on our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines...
Please, tea party members get this stuff on “file”.
Do they make pepper spray grenades that can just be tossed into the squatters?
It would be if there weren't 10,000 normal people for every one of these morons.
8.1mm people live in NYC. There are less than 800 protestors living in Zuccotti Park and only a small percentage of them are even New Yorkers in the first place.
A good number of them aren't even Americans, but Canadians.
I recently spent a few days in Kansas City and saw the Occupy KC protest on the lawn in front of the WWI memorial complex. Half a million people live in KC. There were less than 25 protestors there on a pleasant Saturday afternoon.
Apparently the Occupy Boston protest isn't even at 1,000 people - and this in a city that has the largest infestation of self-righteous college students in America.
Menino and the DNC support these attacks watched
around the world.
Obama,DNC, Soros 2 America 0
They’re against search and rescue? Against maintaining navigational aids? Against protecting our borders (actually, that’s probably why - drug interdiction)? Libs disgust me.
just following mommy and daddy’s example from the glorious ‘60’s. been waiting their whole life, now if they can only find a rifle barrel to stick a flower in
they might not want to try that one.
CS works better in the damp weather. More staying power.

As others have said, it’s doubtful the spitters knew the lady was Coast Guard. Probably thought Navy.
Not that that should make a difference.
The Coast Guard is a corporation??
Bass turds!! RIP Tonk!
From personal experience, these a-holes won't give you the time of day if you needed it but when they or their families are in danger they can't call you fast enough. After the danger is gone they conveniently forget to thank you and act like nothing happened.
If I were their commander I would ORDER all my people to walk by them with video cameras going and more because it is this kind of crap that reveales who these Anti-America scum are.
Remember now they are just like the Tea Party. Only different. Real different.
I’m thinking that this is the Dem’s worst nightmare. Desperate to have their own version of the Tea Party, they have come out in support of these gangstas. They are on the edge of a knife.
Day by day, this is degenerating into mob mentality as the gangstas are pushing the envelope to get more and more face time.
Although the crowds will likely disperse once the weather turns cold (at least up north), they will reorganize with a vengeance come spring. Next summer should prove very interesting.
Chucky Schemer has plans to make the “far right fringe Tea Party” the centerpiece of the 2012 campaign. Going to be tough to pull that one off with the OWS gangstas around his own neck.
My bet is the WH and key Dems are working overtime to shut down OWS before it gets really ugly. They’re going to need a lot of payola to unions to get that done.
Remember what their parents did to returning Viet Nam vets?
Sounds like it’s ass kicking time in Pee-Party-ville.
I don't know. I'm thinking they (WH etc) are still so full of themselves that it hasn't dawned on them this is in danger of turning into a PR disaster.
The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon by Occupy Boston protesters.Surprise, surprise - NOT.
But 'series' if I saw that I'd be compelled to 'correct that person's attitude'. As per SCOTUS that's not 'protected speech', but 'Fighting Words'. So said spitter would get what he deserved (that'd be my defense and I'd stick to it).
These maggot pinko-commies always have and always will hate America and our Republic. And they're lucky I'm not sitting in the Oval Office writing out Hit Lists like Barry is doing. [Apparently it's 'legal' again.]
(IMO I always thought it should be 'legal'. Ford's EO stopping the CIA from doing what they did best ('wet work') was boneheaded.)
You wrote: “The Coast Guard advises their uniformed members to RUN AWAY.”
The little parasites would not have the cajones to try it to a Marine in uniform.
If I was in or our uniform, ONE of them would have gone down if they did it to me. The encounter would be something they would remember.
Seems as though a few states have released their insane asylum inmates.
The WH surely knows that if this gets out of bounds, it’s going to turn off the independent voters. Those are the ones they have lost and must get back to win in 2012.
This chicanery will rev up their base, but that’s not enough to win.
You are right. They spat upon servicemen returning from Vietnam. That is the real Dem Left.
You give them credit and assume ignorance is the reason they are so uncivil. My FRiend, you are wrong. Don't let them off the hook that easy. People in mass groups with a common cause feed off the POWER they perceive they have. The psychological make up of weakminded and inferior people is similiar to that of animals and bugs. Their numbers and peers give them a sense of security, dominance and power. It is the mob mentality. "What are you going to do about it?" and "...because I can." is the order of the day. It is true thuggary brought out in the rotten soul of truly inferior people with a bolstered sense of importance as a result of being part of a seemingly powerful mob. These people are a fine representation of the liberal hypocracy movement. Did they think the Coast Guard Female was Rich? No. It was an opportunity for some slimeballs to show their true colors without fear of retribution or responsibility. This is what the left's "utopia" really looks like. Woodstock? Hate and Ashbury? San Francisco? I hope the voters are watching this and I hope the media keeps covering it and comparing and contrasting it with the Tea Party movement.
Yes. Last I knew they were for the police only and each one had a unique serial number and had to be individually counted and kept track of for the ATF.
I wish they could. Their training prevents them from reacting unless their is actual viable threat to their safety. As a boxer has trained fists, a marine is a trained killer. As such, their very posture to attack a citizen in a street fight is different then if it were you or I. Likewise, a raucus group spitting and throwing things at us could invoke an actual fear for our lives and we would be amply justified in defending ourselves depending on the circumstances. A marine must answer to a court marshal. The standard expectation for the perceived threat a marine can expect is a little higher. That does not say they are not allowed to defend themselves if attacked. But they are not allowed to climb over a fences to beat the snot out of a couple dozen pot smoking hippies because they spit at them. You or I might get away with shooting them in self defense (though I don't recommend it). To bad really. These type of stories infuriate me.
Yea, Tea Partiers only spit on Black Democrat Congressmen.
Off, OFF Damned Sarcasm!!!
And you would have a case, I think:
Battery can also be indirect such as the perpetrator throwing and hitting the other person with an object such as a shoe or knife or by spitting. If a person were to threaten to spit upon another person and the spitter said they had HIV / AIDS and were intending to infect the other person, then this would be assault. If the spit landed upon the other person, this would be battery.
“Its the 1960s anti-war Left all over again.”
What a bunch of tomboys. Bring back the draft. That’ll send the little cowards off to Canada, where they belong.
With all due respect, cram it.
There is no reason an unarmed person should be sent into a situation where they might be assaulted by multiple criminal morons just so the USCG can say, “Look how tough we are, we let ten protesters beat up 1 enlisted guy with no significant combat training.”
This is an excellent example of discretion being the better part of valor.
See post 45.
Tear Gas grenades can be effective.
“Remember what their parents did to returning Viet Nam vets?”
Time for a little “dungaree liberty”.
A hundred or so of us old fogies with our canes and our limps, wearing ball caps denoting our service, eagerly parading past their little spat fest in anticipation of some exercise.
that’s the ticket!
