On the way back, from out the woods, all of a sudden the traffic came to a stand still. For a second I thought I had given way to shock and was in need medical attention because this is Maryville, Tennessee. This is a town that is maybe three times the size of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, it seemed a bit excessive to require four police cars and one tow truck at the “scene of the crime.”
After all it was just a routine case of dented rear (end) syndrome. One idiot/person liked the other person’s butt a little too much and would have no long distance relationship. For this driver, he wanted that butt just like a babyboomer to coke: “ITS MINE!!! I WANT IT NOW!!!!!!!” A moment of pure obsessive madness.
The larger problem is the inability of said law enforcement to correctly assist in navigating around such a traffic fiasco. No, instead said officer motioned as if I was to stop my motor vehicle. What he then failed to do was request that I drive around said incident while he walked past me.
This was not a case of American blind justice, just sheer irreverence for having a decent work ethic. After all aren’t public servants supposed to perform their tasks to the best of their ability no matter how irksome? Or, in the midst of other current events, have the law enforcement officials in Maryville be taking notes from the Knox County Commision? Only time will tell…
