Good for John! Don't take ANY s***!

Everyone loves seals. The eco-thugs are trying to position themselves as the savior of seals when these seals are fine sharing the access just as they do in other part of the country or even other parts of California. Look up how humans and seals share beaches fine in Washington State, Maine, etc.

But without the boogeyman of "save the seals", these opportunists can't hoodwink tourists to part from their donation dollars. In the process, rightful public beach access are denied to citizens of San Diego. If this is allowed to happen, what happens next when seals want to move to some other beach? More thuggery? Why are the thugs focusing on the seals, which are not endangered or threatened (look it up), near a tourist-filled area to create this issue? Don't see them trying to save the seals down in less touristy Point Loma.

Because seals are cuddly and that helps tourists part with donation cash. Sad what some would do for a few bucks...

Come on Dorian, MarJane Aalam? How many times do you think she has been arrested? For assault! How many times has John Leek been arrested??? Follow the money...Who pays Marjane? How does Marjane pay her guards that are there every night? What is at stake here? Do you think the activists make more money here than at other locations? Are you really a reporter? Sorry my mind just went off. How many other seal haulout sites exist where there are pup births around San Diego? ...Hum Point Loma! Are there activists there at those sites? Is Sealwatch the group that Marjane works for? Is Sealwatch part of APRL, Animal Protection and Rescue League? Don't they operate Savesandiegoseals ? How much money do they take in? How much money does Marjane make? Insted of talking about John, are you at all interested in how the activists have made some $881,084 from 2006 - 2008? You know with that kind of money the sand could have been removed and the water quality would be perfect for swimming and diving! How much money do you make? Sorry my mind just went off. Check out the real Sealwatch, Savesandiegoseals and APRL at http://www.youtube.com/user/spearfishinglajolla

How is it legal for such harrassment by marjane towards tax paying citizens to legally use the beach?

If people are harrassing seals, then law enforcement should deal with them, not this terrorist.

Seals are awesome species, FOS is a eco thug group, that uses intimidation to deny our legal right to use childrens pool.

This is an interesting story.

The odd thing is you make it sound like the police would have done something to John Leek had he been there when they arrived. The truth is that they would have told Marjane to stop harassing John, as they have told her multiple times.

Marjane and her fellow animal activists have had the police called on them dozens of times. I have personally been harrassed by her and her thugs until I felt physically endangered multiple times. I have seen her directing one of her "nightwatch" people to physically attack a fellow beachgoer.

In short, Marjane in not some harmless ecofriendly person, rather an ecoterrorist who attacks people for simply wanting to use an open, public beach. She uses threats and intimidation to keep people from going on said public beach. Worse yet is the San Diego City atty and City council have been told this is occuring, shown video evidence, and still continue to do nothing about it. Thankfully, the SDPD has been doing a good job protecting beachgoers from Marjane and her violent friends.

I don't know if it's more scary or pathetic that the San Diego City Council knowingly continues to allow citizens and tourists to be harrassed, intimidated and even physically assulted by violent animal rights activists.

At some point, the city will become liable for passivly condoning the actions of Marjane and her violent friends, and the ensuing lawsuit will make the million dollars needed to clean up the Children's pool seem like pocket change.

The FOS are nothing more than an organized group of bullies. I have seen multiple accounts of harrassment and thugery at the Children's Pool. Ohhh, did I mention the CHILDREN's POOL, built and donated for the CHILDREN of San Diego. I personally have been singled out and shouted at for diving that area. The FOS are exploiting the seal haulout for their own gain. Filming people, verbally harassing them, and posting them on YouTube is in no way acceptable. None the less, the SD City Council supports them. Not only do they support them but after repeated police reports, the City Council condones their behavior because of their refusal to act. What's wrong with Seal Rock? The seals survived just fine by using NATURAL haul outs instead of a man made haul out.

Note to politicians and politico wannabe's: Do not cheat on your spouse. Do not sexually harass your co-workers. Do not molest anyone. I could go on but if you are inclined to do the type of things I mentioned then you should not go into politics. You will be found out and you will be outed. As for Beiser he can kiss his political ambitions good by and he can probably kiss his teaching job good by too.

It might be noticed that, when these accusations were made, his liberal and Dem backers and friends were quick, very quick, to denounce him and demand that he go away. As to him keeping his job with the always-mismanaged Sweetwater district, I'd guess that they will scrutinize him and his conduct closely. If he was doing anything inappropriate with kids he'll pay the price. Don't you wonder where the DA is in all this? These accusations are of criminal acts, not just something to resolve civilly. She needs to step up and either press charges or announce that there isn't enough evidence.
