Rumford Police Unaccountable

By: Rolly Perry, guest blog

The Rumford Police are at it yet again. I was up at The Bridge (Boulder) past (High Bridge) on Friday February 24th at about 10:30am getting ready to climb the rock there. As I was getting ready a Rumford, Maine cruiser drove by. He goes “you alright?” I said I was and he told me to move my truck. It’s parked in the spot where I climb and maybe a foot or two on the road. I again explained why I was there and why I need my truck in this location. I also mentioned that I climb there all the time. To no avail.

He gets belligerent and starts to give me HUGE attitude! I’m actually kind of shocked and can’t believe this is actually happening. So I get in and move it off the road. He backs up off the road, gets out and sputters something. As I walk over to the spot where the truck was, I ask him how far do I need to move it [the truck]?

“Come over here I’m talking to you.” He said.

I keep walking to the spot to show him with my feet the distance I think I would need to move it. I said, “How far do I need to move it over to, here?”

Then he said “I’m done arguing with you!”

“Ok” I replied.

“The next time I see the truck parked there I’m gonna tow it.”

I said “ok.”. Then he drives off. I went to the town manager to complain. He said I should talk to chief. I said I did not want to talk him and was told a formal complaint can be issued in writing. He simply has no idea how to have any public relations or he made the situation worse by getting attitude with me. Much much worse. Pathetic… Really sad job performance. Escalate an almost completely benign situation into one that showed how poor of an officer he was.
