Why I Drive A Big Truck In MA, Part ???

Because of people like this:

What the hex: OUI suspect charged in wild crash threatened cop with voodoo curse
A Cadillac-driving OUI suspect — charged with running a Boston Globe delivery truck off Interstate 93 and onto the Leverett Connector — was carrying three EBT cards, mocked a cop “for paying for food when she gets it for free” and threatened to put a voodoo curse on him, according to a police report.

“I questioned her as to why she had other peoples (sic) EBT cards and she 
began screaming that I was a ‘dumb (expletive)’ for paying for food when she gets it for free,” trooper William Koko­cinski wrote of Vivencia 
Bellegarde, 25, of Everett, noting she had her own electronic benefits transfer card and also the cards of two other people.
She responded, of course, by making veiled threats to the officer, calling him a racist, and threatening to put a curse on him. All because he dared to arrest her for drunk driving (at least her second offense) after she caused a wreck that put a man in the hospital. But - according to her - it's okay, because he didn't die (and, we can assume, because he was a white devil) - and she really wanted a cigarette.

I won't comment about the fact that she had three EBT cards, only one of which belonged to her, was unemployed, and yet was still driving a Cadillac (heck, I was a graduate student making less than minimum wage when I was driving a Cadillac...) It's the fact that this is her second OUI offense (that we know of), that she has many citations for failing to pay tickets, and yet still has a valid MA license. This is someone that has absolutely no business being on the road, yet she continues to be a legally permitted driver.

You know, maybe we should treat cars like guns - you don't get a second chance to screw up with a gun (legally).

That is all.

Sounds like you need to keep garlic and lamb's blood in your truck too.

What gun for voodoo curse?

Ross said...

"A spokesman for the state Department of Transitional Assistance, which administers welfare, said in a statement the agency has been notified of Bellegarde’s EBT cards “and will take appropriate action.”"

Yeah, sure... like issuing her more cards to replace the ones that were confiscated.

The only way to remove a voodoo curse is to bow down towards the home of John Mose Browning,PBUH...and repeat three times, the 2nd Amendment, and then vow to support it.

Then twirl around 3 times, while painted bright green, wearing a tutu. After drinking an entire bottle of vinegar. In public.

Being this is MA...the second half is probably more likely.

No jail time.
Can lock up loyal Democrat voters.

When asked why I drive a Ford Exploder (2010, last year on truck chassis) I simply say "F=ma."
For Liberal Arts majors I say "Big beats small in crash-boom."

Stretch nailed it... sigh

Finally got access to an ipad in my 7th day in the hospital and while catching up (btw, your site isn't blocked at Baystate) saw this article. In response to stretch's comment, I know of a very fixable Scion and a quite totaled '11 hemi ram that might disprove your statement...
