    Vermont man uses tractor to flatten 8 police cars - U.S. News

    A man driving a farm tractor ran over eight vehicles in the parking lot of a Vermont police station in an apparent revenge scheme, according to local reports...

    With the vehicles crushed, police had no way to pursue Pion after he drove off in the tractor...

    He is expected to appear in Orleans County Criminal Court Friday to answer to seven counts of felony unlawful mischief, one count of misdemeanor unlawful mischief, one count of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, one count of gross negligent operation, and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.


    Apparently, Pion was none-too happy about being arrested for resisting arrest after being caught with marijuana.

    When were they ever winning????

    This "war" is up there on the dumb scale right next to Iraq and our continued presence in Afghanistan.

    The only thing the war on drugs even "won" was turning street corner pick pockets into powerful, rich organized crime types (ala Prohibition).

    I'm guessing they busted him before he got to toke.
    Furthermore, the cops would probably had caught him on foot had he lit up.
    ......nice tractor.

    Northeast Kingdom in Vermont is a wierd and wonderful place. Bill Lee lives there. He once got in deep crap for a Globe interview:

    "One thing I love about Vermont is you can take all back roads so you can drink," Lee is saying in one of his free-association rambles, which somehow gets his loves and hates out in a coherent monologue. "You go back there and you're not going to hit anybody. I love Vermont. You're back there and you slow down when you see a deer or a moose. It's a great state. It was 16 miles where we took the cutoff, and I said we would not see 16 cars; we saw five. You just have to slow down and be nice."

    "For me, there is no better place in America than the Northeast Kingdom," he wrote in one essay. "I started out in Craftsbury in 1988, thinking it was a halfway house between a bar in Boston and a bar in Montreal. Now when I'm away, I can't wait to get to my own little rehabilitation center on the hill. What a view . . . All I know is that when I get through New Hampshire's Franconia Notch and see those highlands to the north, I breathe a lot easier."

    Pretty much sums up the NK for me. Love it up there.

    The most surprising think about this recent story is that there are police (other than VSP) there. I had no idea.
