Mark A. Adams, 59, was arraigned Friday, March 14, by Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank on a felony charge of resisting and obstructing a police officer and a misdemeanor charge of disturbing the peace.

I used to work in Bridgeport.

A few years ago, the township government voted to spend $2 million dollars to renovate a steel bridge over the Cass River there. The bridge was closed because it wasn't safe for cars anymore and they put barricades in front of it to prevent drivers from using it. You could still walk across it. So what did they do? They renovate it and paint it and put big concrete planters in front of it to keep cars off it because it doesnt meet modern requirements for vehicular bridges. The new planters block the driveway of the business next door so there is fighting over that. The bridge had been closed for years, there is another bridge two blocks away, and the only people using it now are people who want to access a minuscule park on the other side. I never saw a single person on that new bridge. You can drive to the park on the other, plain vanilla bridge TWO blocks away. The park might be a good place for teenagers to smoke cigarettes but not much else. The reasoning for renovating the bridge by the elected township board? "We're named Bridgeport after all, we should have a bridge". They could have sold it for scrap to pay for a new name or just torn it down. WTF is wrong with these people?!

I Wonder If The Cops Broke His Arms..

WTF is going on!!

"Sorry slave but your 3 minutes are up.. please sit your as$ down or we're going to have the cops break both your arms..
