FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 28 (UPI) -- In an explosive fit of symbolism, a woman in Boston bombarded a local police precinct with uncooked breakfast meats -- bacon and pork sausage.

Before serving her unwelcome meal -- disguised inside a Dunkin' Donuts box -- the woman approached an officer at a teller window offered loudly to "feed the pigs." The woman, Lindsey McNamara, subsequently smeared several of the bacon slices and sausage links on the window, tossing the others onto the counter.

Her assault on the William H. Welch Way police station, in Framingham, Massachusetts, was short-lived; she was arrested shortly after 11:00 a.m. She faces charges of disorderly conduct and malicious destruction of property.

Lieutenant Harry Wareham said it isn't clear what her motivation was, but feelings of ill-will towards the police have been growing after a series of incidents involving the deaths of unarmed African American males at the hands of police.

"There's a lot of unrest regarding law enforcement, and I don't know if [this] is related or not," Wareham told Boston.com. "There's probably a lot more productive ways to voice her displeasure with police."

McNamara later claimed to be religiously motivated. "God told me to go over there and feed the pigs," she said during her first court appearance.
