What the Left Has Given Us:
Police Arrest 2 At Parade
By Michael Levenso
"Too close for comfort," Durfee said last night.
After the throwing , Durfee said he saw two teens run from their backyard into their house, and two police officers chase after them.
Rockland police said last night that they arrested two 13-year-olds and charged them with disorderly conduct and assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony.
Rockland Police Chief John Llewellyn told FOX-25 TV that the culprits were a "couple of 13-year-olds that just wanted to cause some trouble and they picked the wrong time and the wrong group of people to do it to."
Durfee said the color guard completed its 21-gun salute despite the disturbance. But last night at the Rockland Veterans of Foreign Wars center , emotions were still raw, said Steven MacDonald , the post commander.
"It's very discouraging, especially on a day like today," MacDonald said. "We don't need somebody throwing eggs at us. That's crazy. It's unacceptable."
MacDonald said several veterans are planning plan to show up at Hingham District Court today to demonstrate their disgust as the two teens are arraigned in the juvenile session.
My stepdad was a Marine. He worked on the 'crash crew' on airstrips in Okinawa after the war. My sis says, after one particularly bad crash, she remembers mom told her he she heard him crying in the bedroom...
I swear to God, if I had been in that crowd and saw those boys throwing eggs at those fine men, I would have charged out of the crowd and totally come unglued; I'd have slapped the s*** out of them. They would've been very glad to be turned over to the police... Nothing makes me madder!
