    I posted this article and my comment on a couple other forums, and got some interesting replys/comments. Some had me scratching my head. There were some semi-apologists for this woman, and other's wanted more background. Many resented any connection to a political "bent" or "anti-war" connection being inferred.

    I know that we all have differing views on the war or any wars with some folks, but I really think that this is a sad commentary on a lot of folks, and how they view our military folks that "answer the call" regardless of their personal feelings might be.

    I also give the soldier a lot of credit for keep his, "cool", and letting the proper authorities handle this "assault".

    Hopefully this gal wasn't Hepatitus A, B, or C, positive.

    Woman Spits in Soldier's Face

    Syracuse radio station WFBL reports that Lauren Maggi, 35, of Thurber Street was charged with harassment for spitting in a soldier's face at Hancock Airport.

    The incident happened over the Thanksgiving holiday. Maggi approached a soldier from the 10th Mountain Division, who apparently was not in uniform, and asked if he was a soldier. When he said yes, Maggi allegedly spit in his face.

    WFBL's news service is supplied by television station WTVH, which has nothing posted yet about the incident on its website. Syracuse.com carries this blurb:

    • Woman accused of spitting on soldier A Syracuse woman was charged after a Fort Drum soldier accused her of spitting on him without provocation at Hancock Airport, Syracuse police said.

    On January 18 of this year, Lauren Maggi, 34, of Thurber Street, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

    Someone tell me again about how the Left supports the troops, but not their mission.

    Update: More details:

    Jason Jones, 21, told police a woman he did not know walked up to him near the United Airlines ticket counter, asked him if he was a Fort Drum solider and, when he responded that he was, spat in his face.

    Police searched the airport garage and located a woman fitting the description that Jones provided, who was later identified as Maggi. Police escorted her into the terminal, where Jones identified her as the woman who had spit on him. A second soldier on the scene supported Jones' accusation, police said.

    Maggi offered no explanation for her conduct, police said. She could not be reached for comment Thursday night.

    I'd punched her out for being rude it is a job he is doing and it ain't all about killing. She'll look good in anger management telling her story!

    Why waste your time? Some liberal Judge would rule she has a right to express her dissent over the illegal and immoral war being fought by bloodthirsty baby killers

    Back, Dillo..


    Read about this on another site a week ago.

    Mostly Military folks there, it seems this is not an isolated thing.

    I still see this as an assault. Here's my reasoning. Anyone know how deadly Hepatitus is? Certain strains are incurable. Good old spit is the best way to pass it along.

    If that lady is infected with it, she has given this young man a slow death sentence.
    ......
    I don't know if she had a political agenda, is solely luny, or both. I do know that she asked if he was stationed at a certain military base......and wa la! he got spittled in response to his, "Yes.". Someone on some other forum wondered if a G.I. had assaulted her from that military base, and she was filled with rage. I'm telling yah....the apologists just come out of the wood work!
    .....
    I still remember the working-over that G.I.'s got who were going to or coming back from South Vietnam back in the late 60's and early to mid 70's. It was absolutely disgraceful. These non-violent flower children hurled feces, spit, and all yelled all kinds of disrespectful epitaphs at our folks in uniform. It often happened in airports, bus or train stations.

    You don't need any reasoning eightball - she's an arsehole....pure and simple. Obviously the guy was too much a gentleman to hit her...not that that would have been the right thing to do, but I doubt anybody would have had a go at him for doing so.
