A woman has been arrested and charged for entering a Framington police station and tossing a Dunkin’ Donuts box full of raw bacon at cops, while smiling and claiming that God told her to “feed the pigs.”
When Lindsey McNamara entered the police station on Friday at around 11 a.m., it was clear that she fully intended to do something with all the raw pork she was carrying.
As reported by the Boston Globe, Lieutenant Harry Wareham said McNamara approached an officer “with a great smile on her face” and said she was there to “feed the pigs.” She then apparently took the bacon and sausages out of the box and smeared it on the window of the dispatch office.
McNamara was arrested and charged with malicious destruction of property. In court, she told the judge, “Somebody’s out to get me,” adding, “I don’t know who it is, but somebody is out to get me.”
Wareham told reporters, “She walked into the lobby and was carrying a Dunkin’ Donuts box, walked up to the window, when the officer greeted her asked if he could help here she said ‘I’m here to feed the pigs,'” he recalled, adding, “It’s clear she may need help.”
When the judge advised her about the charge against her, she said, “I mean, I didn’t really destruct property. I just smeared some grease;” not much of a defense, but her point was taken and duly noted.
The incident may have something to do with the numerous protests across the U.S. in recent weeks, claiming police brutality following the tragic deaths of several citizens, including Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York City. The protests have resulted in extensive damage to private property and hundreds of arrests.
Most recently, a man shot two cops to death as they sat in their car in Brooklyn, New York, saying he wanted to “Put Wings on Pigs” on his Facebook page before the double murder.
As Lt. Wareham continued, “There’s a lot of unrest regarding law enforcement, and I don’t know if [this] is related or not. There’s probably a lot more productive ways to voice her displeasure with police.”
