It would be a real shame if concerned citizens pushed people like this overboard.

I'm guessing they meant the Kitsap Foot Ferry, not the big boat from West Seattle.

Have a few police officers ride the thing in shifts.

If the ferry hasn't left yet and they refuse to mask up, they are escorted off the ferry. Then take it from there.

If they get halfway to the destination and they remove their mask and refuse to put it back on, cuff them to something, put a mask on them. Then book them when you get to the destination.

The man, who had been drinking, was issued a 60-day no-trespass order from Washington State Ferries properties severely beaten by ferry staff and passengers then thrown over the side. He has not seen since and is believed to have drowned.

That would be more effective.
 
2021-09-13 1:16:35 PM  
OK, WTF is it with these people - get stinkin' drunk, then get on a public transport and refuse to wear a mask, then take a swing at the staff?  Why ids this the normal behavior for them?

I avoid the foot ferry.  By the time it gets to Kitsap my legs are always tired from all the pedaling.
 
2021-09-13 1:18:09 PM  
The person "became aggressive" and "assault[ed] a Washington State Ferries employee" over not wearing a mask? I'm with my fellow farker Circusdog320; ban them for life. I don't even care if they live/work on an island that's unreachable except for by ferry.

My Dad calls them Jekyll and Hyde drunks. They're the guy at the dive bar who seems normal, but a dozen or so beers later he's saying the n-word in every sentence. The guy at the party who was fine but had too much to drink and suddenly wants to fight anyone with a pulse.

The alcohol gives them confidence, lowers their inhibitions, and brings whatever emotions are bubbling under the surface to a rolling boil.

A total of 3030 participants were randomly assigned to the recommendation to wear masks, and 2994 were assigned to control; 4862 completed the study. Infection with SARS-CoV-2 occurred in 42 participants recommended masks (1.8%) and 53 control participants (2.1%). The between-group difference was −0.3 percentage point (95% CI, −1.2 to 0.4 percentage point; P= 0.38) (odds ratio, 0.82 [CI, 0.54 to 1.23]; P= 0.33). Multiple imputation accounting for loss to follow-up yielded similar results. Although the difference observed was not statistically significant, the 95% CIs are compatible with a 46% reduction to a 23% increase in infection.

It was from Fauntleroy, so no, it was a full-sized boat, and he prolly drove on, so throwing him overboard woulda caused issues around getting the car off. Vashon Island is redneck country, one of the stops it makes. I'd think that's where he was headed, but South Kitsap is has its share of stoopids.

1. Politely inform him he needs to wear a mask or leave the boat.
2. If he will not adhere to either option in #1, physically remove him from the boat and charge him with trespassing.
3. If he resists #2, add on assault/battery charges as appropriate.
4. For any time the boat is delayed, every other passenger has a civil claim against him for the value of that time lost.
5. The ferry company has a civil claim against him for the value of any wasted fuel, plus any lost fares (people who chose to not take the ferry, or full fares for any trips cancelled due to the delay.

Book them when you get back to the origin. Don't let them get a ride.

With so many ferries here out of service this year, the last thing we need is one major delay to muck up the whole route.

Walk the plank, Plague Rat!

I wasn't sure if this should be funnied or smarted.  Funny seemed innocuous and Smart seemed heartless.  This is Fark, so I decided on Smart.

I'm sure there's a poor person somewhere that could use a free car. I'd be glad to pay tax money to have it cleaned, re-keyed, ownership transferred, and filled with gas.

At least part of my issue with in person school right now is the legitimate concern that if someone knowingly sent their sick kid in I would snap and beat the shiat out of them.

I have a meeting at my kid's school tonight and masks are mandatory for anyone entering the building. No exceptions. Should I bring brass knuckles along?

I'm sure all those police officers who are refusing to get vaccinated will get right on that mask enforcement.

Only because it was a Ferry going to Kitsap. I rode the metro bus for a couple of years and I saw a lot of drivers get pushed or slapped. Let's just say the perps didn't strike me as big Garth Brooks fans.

When the petty officer assigned to monitor personnel with drug,/alcohol problems at my command fell off the wagon (they are traditionally "recovering" because they are assumed to have empathy & set an example), I happened to be the first Sailor the CO saw after getting the news. I heard him say, "I am tired if inmates running that particular asylum," look up and see me in the hallway, and then, "Petty Officer Lurk! I have a job for you."

In addition to my teaching assignment at that command, I wound up managing the sobriety of 60 plus men and women for the next two years. I knew nothing about aa, recovery, sobriety etc.. the next Monday I was at a two-week course at another command nearby to learn about those things, and then it was up to me to make sure that all the personal assigned to me followed the direct is in orders of both the command and the courts. Of course, confidentiality was a major thing. I was assigned to an office off of stairway I did not even know existed! It was literally the only way to reach that small room. I started conducting meetings for AA OA DA and all sorts of anonymous meetings. (Interestingly, d other groups all felt sorry for the overeaters because the one thing you can't go cold turkey on is cold turkey. Overeating is the one addiction that has to be controlled rather than just giving it up completely! I always thought it was funny at group meetings to hear someone say they were an overeater and the drug addicts and drunks would basically say, "oh you poor bastard!")

It was an interesting experience, and I learned a lot. I was awarded a Navy achievement medal. I also learned that military men are very reluctant to admit they are being abused by an alcoholic wife and would actually rather suffer the consequences of whatever happens then say that they are being beaten up by their woman! I had to testify in several Court martials, including one where a woman accused her husband of molesting their child, and another where a man claimed the reason he had cocaine in his system was because his wife put it on her genitalia and he then indulged in oral sex with her, and another where a young man was prostituting himself to pay for his addiction and wound up appearing in gay porn in uniform!

The man I felt sorry is for was someone who tried very hard to follow all the steps of his addiction program, he was an alcoholic, and he faithfully attended every AA meeting submitted to any test and did whatever he was supposed to do and was very very sober. Then you caught a cold and was given some NyQuil or Robitussin or whatever by Sick Bay. He got popped for alcohol in his barracks room during a spot inspection. He was a not very smart, very naive Country boy and I know for a fact he did not realize cough syrup had alcohol in it. I testified for him at his Captain's Mast, something I would not normally have done. Some alcoholics are very devious, but this guy I firmly believe to this day. If somebody an authority told him the moon was square he would believe them.

It was not a dull job.

Ferry workers in WA are not typically the sort of folks to suffer fools lightly. Don't get me wrong, they will help you slim Jim your car door lock if you get locked out and let them know before reaching the dock, but they will also smash your window with a smile if you don't let them know in time or have a vehicle that can't be jimmied easily.
