Vermont farmer crushes 7 police cars with tractor over pot arrest

• Rawstory

A Vermont farmer used his tractor to crush seven Orleans County Sheriff’s Department squad cars on Thursday because he was angry about being arrested on marijuana charges last month.

“It’s more than half our fleet,” Chief Deputy Sheriff Phil Brooks explained to the Burlington Free Press. “We have 11 cars.”

Roger Pion, 34, allegedly flattened five marked cruisers and two unmarked vehicles, including a van used for transporting prisoners. A car belonging the the department’s bookkeeper was also damaged as the tractor pushed it to clear a path to the squad cars.

As we give Government an ever larger excuse to execute standardized martial law, we best be stocking up not on gold and silver, but on the latest arms and ammo... and on organized resistance, 'cause law enforcement is very organized.

The only mistake he made was, the cars were empty. The truth is that I wouldn't want to see anyone get hurt or killed, but the way these nazi drones with guns and badges act and treat others, it sure would be justifiable at times. I also don't condone what this man did, but I can sure understand why.

And he did it because he wanted to go home early---not to mention the great OT he'd get repairing the place.  A true union man.

Still, the best ever doing damage to government property was the guy that set fire to a submarine causing more then $400,000,000 million in damages. Now that guy is a true hero.
