Oregon Psychiatrist Accused of Sabotaging Mountain Bike TrailsBy Rocky Thompson on October 2nd, 2012
One of my friends maintains that all psychiatrists are insane. He says, and I’m paraphrasing, “That’s why they study psychiatry; because they’re so messed up themselves.” This is, of course, complete rubbish. But this story out of Medford, Oregon will not go far to change my friend’s mind:
A psychiatrist employed by the county has been accused of sabotaging several mountain bike trails with nails, nylon cord, and vegetation. He said he does not like mountain bikers. Three riders have sustained minor injuries, and he’s been charged with reckless endangerment and fourth-degree assault.
If he’s convicted, I’d love to hear why he hates mountain bikers. Do they drink all the beer at his local bar? Are they dating his ex-wife? Perhaps it’s their offensive smell. This story leaves so many questions unanswered.
