As some of you know, I have a problem with the police/security around my neighbourhood… call it an ongoing mutual grudge if you will. For about a year they’ve left me alone… because I always give them a piece of my mind when they waste my time.
Nevertheless, some new recruits decided to have a go at me today.
Basically, they stuck me for the exact same thing as the first time:
However, let it be known that I did NOT go down without making it clear that they were wasting their time… and that like it or not, they were going to be seeing a whole lot more of me.
The situation was this:
I was in the middle of the huge green patch of grass in the center of town’s recreation center practising my hops onto a picnic table. I stop and take a break ontop of the table when this woman in uniform and hiding behind a pair of sunglasses asked me “what I though was doing” in a tone of voice that suggested the answer “moronic behavior”. Taken aback I simply replied
-“well, I’m riding.”
-“you’re RIDING?” Says she, raising one of her eyebrows as she did so.
-“Well yeah? Hey listen, what’s with the attitude? I can do without”
She then asks me again what I thought I was doing and again I replied that I was riding. I was riding my unicycle onto this picnic table and off of the picnic table.
-“Do you think that’s a smart thing to do?”
-“wait what? You calling my stupid??!”
Owen flips out right about here
she then calls in reinforcements on her walkie-talkie and pleads them to hurry up because “the subject” was getting aggressive.
flips out even more
Aggressive?? Damn straight I was getting aggressive… damn, these people are trying to take away my afternoon activity!
I bring on the topic that there is nowhere for me to ride legally because I’m not allowed in the skatepark that I was standing outside of… so what else am I going to do?
Oh btw, they let bikes in but not my unicycle… but for some reason when it comes to being in the park… my unicycle is a bike.
Anyways, reiforcement comes, I give him hell. He asks for my name I tell him he ain’t gettin’ it.
I tell them that they’re wasting my time trying to stick me for something I already fought for and won.
He then thinks he’s clever by replying that “if you’ve already won this one then you shouldn’t mind getting on again”
I then had to wait 45 minutes to get my ticket… 45 minutes!!! Talk about a waste of taxpayers money.
I never see them hasslin’ pushers or nothing like that seems that I’m public enemy number one around these parts.
haha they also said it was gonna cost me more cause I had a record. Damn straight.
So next step is a peaceful uni/scratch protest in the park.
I’m gonna call my friends.
Nah, I ain’t got the patience. I’m going back out on a ride.
