Occupy Boston camper banned from site for allegedly assaulting officers

Jade Anderson, 20, was arrested on Nov. 19  for allegedly punching two police officers in the face and screaming anti-police slogans at them while they responded to the domestic dispute. On Friday, Nov. 25, a Boston judge ordered her to stay away from the camp.

A Boston judge has banned a Dewey Square dweller from returning to the Occupy Boston encampment after she allegedly interfered with a domestic violence investigation that occurred within Tent City.

According to reports, Jade Anderson, 20, was arrested on Nov. 19  for allegedly punching two police officers in the face and screaming anti-police slogans at them while they responded to the domestic dispute.

Anderson was arraigned in court on Friday, Nov. 25, and told by a judge to “stay away from the scene of the incidents and any other Occupy Boston activities within the City of Boston,” according to reports from the Suffolk District Attorney’s office.

On Nov. 19, Boston Police responded to the camp after receiving a 911 call about a man allegedly assaulting a woman.

Officers spoke to protesters, who allegedly led them to a tent where the man and woman were staying.
According to reports, after interviewing both parties, the woman told officers the conflict had been verbal and that she had not been assaulted.

While officers spoke with the alleged victim, Anderson allegedly “ran toward them and began chanting anti-police slogans, spraying the officers with spittle as she did so.”

Anderson allegedly tried to push past officers to get closer to the ones conducting the interview when another officer told her to leave the area.

According to reports, Anderson became “extremely aggressive” and punched the officer in the face.

When another officer intervened, she allegedly punched him in the face as well.

After failing to appear in court on Nov. 22 to face two counts of assault on a public employee, the court issued a warrant for Anderson’s arrest.

According to court reports, on Nov. 23, police spotted Anderson, who had allegedly died her hair from blonde to purple.

When officers approached her, she tried to flee, according to police, kicking one of the cops above his left knee as they tried to arrest her.

While being transported to the police station, the officer asked why Anderson had kicked him.
Anderson allegedly told the officer, “Because you [expletive] deserve it.”

Anderson allegedly apologized later, but said she “had to do what she had to do to fight the corruption.”
