VT Man deals crushing blow to sheriff's department police car fleet
A Vermont man is accused by police of running over 7 of their vehicles with a tractor. Associated Press reports that while police were inside enjoying the cool air of air conditioning, a man was in the parking lot crushing their cars with a giant farm tractor. Apparently, the narcotic-like hum of the AC masked the sound of a ginormous tractor smashing 7 cars to bits on the other side of the wall. Hmmm. It seems like this might be another case of the media missing the real story.
NECN (New England Cable News) had one of the most detailed reports on the incident. Apparently, the police cars were not neatly lined up. The alleged tractor-crush hero had to use his machine to first push the vehicles closer to one another so he could then do the monster-truck style drive over, which he did twice according to witnesses. That kind of follow through requires patience and intestinal fortitude. Anyone might have the guts to kick out a back window while laying down on the back seat of a cruiser cuffed (what, you’ve never done that?). However to take the time and attention to detail to do the job this well is pretty unusual.
