Roger Pion, a True American Hero

I never heard the name Roger Pion before but the stunt he pulled in Vermont should make him world famous:

Working in a stout former bank building with windows closed and air conditioners humming, Orleans County sheriff’s deputies didn’t know what was happening in their parking lot until a neighbor called 911.

A man on a big farm tractor, angry about his recent arrest for resisting arrest and marijuana possession, was rolling across their vehicles — five marked cruisers, one unmarked car and a transport van.

By the time they ran outside, the tractor was down the driveway and out onto the road.

With their vehicles crushed, “We had nothing to pursue him with,” said Chief Deputy Philip Brooks.

This is why I love farmers, if anybody in this country has fighting spirit it’s them. Not only do they have fighting spirit but the way they seek revenge is usually quite comical. In this case nobody was hurt and laughs were had by all (except the police, but they don’t count because they arrested a man for a victimless “crime”).

I know the police are going to force Roger to pay for their cars again (he already paid once through taxation) and likely will hold the farmer in a cage for some time. If there is a relief fund or somewhere to send letters of congratulations I’d very much like to know.
