"They don't have a scenario at the academy where we practice this one," one of their commanders said.

No, they have to go to Private Investigation school for learning about construction machinery.

We have greenlit this story 47 times now and we've become exceedingly efficient at it.

That picture is farked up. It looks like the Police vehicle has an excavator arm attached. Seriously, this is why you shoot from more than one angle, and take 2 shots each time.

FTADashcam footage shows the suspect's father swinging the bucket of the excavator at the troopers. One of the officers drew his weapon but did not fire.

Let me guess. The father was white.

It's Vermont.

If a black man and a black woman have a kid there, the baby comes out white. Nature is amazing, sometimes.

So, your point is the trooper was not qualified to take the shot?

My mind wasn't going there and I apparently need to work on phrasing, but I guess that works too.

Vermont State Police say a man behind the wheel of a construction-grade excavator tried to attack two troopers after the officers attempted to arrest his son last week.

So there's non-construction-grade excavators? Who makes those?

Oh, sure, there are small forklift sized mini excavators for doing lawn grading and digging out stumps and stuff like that.  Same people who make the big ones usually make them too.

Hardwick was the butt of many inbred jokes in my youth (I grew up in the thriving metropolis of East Montpelier).

Where was the toothbrush invented? Hardwick of course. Because if it was invented anywhere else, it would've been called a teeth brush.
