Busted For Pot, Farmer Gains Support for Crushing Cop Cars in Retaliation

Don't tick off a guy who owns a tractor

Last August, a Vermont farmer named Roger Pion was arrested with a small amount of marijuana on his person. At the station, the cops allegedly roughed him up. Not a scholar of passive resistance, Pion returned to the jail after his release driving a 20,000-lb. Case tractor. He then crushed six Orleans County cop cars and a police van.

Now, months later, all the cars have been replaced. Roger Pion was arrested again, then placed in a mental health facility. But his legacy lives on, in the hearts (and jammies) of freedom fighters across the land.
