    Just this last Sunday, February 3, I had a heated exchange with a very stupid O.P.P. officer after I reported witnessing a Fowler front end loader damage an expensive metal security railing located in front of 104 Main Street East, Huntsville, and then drive away. In all fairness to the Fowler guy, he probably did not even know what he had done but I did not want to go chase him down the street and get into a potential argument with him. After I calmly explained what had just happened, showing the officer the loader tracks and damage, this arrogant cop who had noticeable attitude from the moment he arrived, actually laughed at me, reminded me that this was NOT damage to “PUBLIC” property but rather “PRIVATE” property and then proceeded to suggest that I should have dealt with the matter myself. When I suggested, rather, that I thought that this was a police matter and that I felt that I was being treated more like a criminal instead of the victim, this crazy cop had a complete over-the-top conniption fit, he virtually had a complete meltdown, yelled at me to “F**K OFF” (in front of two other witnesses), jumped in his cruiser and then to our complete amazement, sped away. Constable Shit For Brains actually did end up saving the day by coming back fifteen minutes later with a Fowler representative who promptly advised that Fowler’s would make good on the damage that they had caused. However, when Shit For Brains started fishing around for my “thank you” I reminded him that the only reason why he ended up doing his job was because my friend was standing beside me earlier videoing everything with his cell phone. Ironically, two days later, the O.P.P. issued this press release asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a hit and run vehicle that had damaged another parked vehicle elsewhere. Personally, I learned a long time ago how important it is to video ANY interaction with the Huntsville O.P.P. You can draw your own conclusions.
