Captain Peter DeCola

This is what Kelli wrote for CNN:

Residing in the North End I often took my dog on walks to one of the few public parks in the neighbor; a park directly next to Coast Guard Boston on Commercial Street. A Coast Guardsman that recognized me as a Street Team member was clearly not happy with us helping rape survivors. The name on his blouse said DeCola . I later found out was Peter DeCola the Executive Officer of Coast Guard Boston. Decola chose not to help a shipmate that were being forced out of her career for reporting rape.

What a SICK man. I am tired of people like Peter DeCola to continue their anti-Coast Guard stance making it look like we are all sexist, misogynistic a-holes. Unlike Captain DeCola most of choose to serve in the military because we are proud of our country and want to serve it.  Not because we want to put down rape survivors.

    DeCola you are scumbag. I heard that you called a disable veteran a lunatic because you covered up her rape. We have the emails. You can not deny it. What is wrong with you for having such disrespect for our U.S disable veterans?

    What Captain Decola is doing is called a “second assault” or “second injury”. It is where the commanders and higher-ups have corroborated their stories to defend the perpetrator.

    Any time you re-traumatize the victim including punishing them or retaliating against them for revealing a rape, it feels like to same sexual assault experience happening all over again.

    DeCola calls one woman that was raped a lunatic and a liar. He tells everyone that she reported the rape and that it came back as she was lying and is proud to be part of the group that kicked her out. We all know that the Coast Guard has a ridicules low prosecution rate. It does not take a rocket scientist to know that most women that report rape are telling the truth; especially if they make their career as a rape counselor. Most likely than not the Coast Guard did cover up her rape and DeCola’s comments only makes this woman story much more creditable. DeCola thinks that he is discrediting her but the truth is the opposite is the case.

    Pete Decola is a compulsive liar. I had the unfortunate opportunity of serving under him for several years. Trust me nobody takes him seriously. Yes Commander on one end and behind his back we talk about what a douche that he is. He does not have any respect from the rest of us even if we have to pretend and like him to his face. It does not surprise me that Pete Decola would verbally assault a woman because she reported being raped. He is a monster like that. He is now a Captain.
