BRISTOL — At 12:14 a.m. on July 4 Bristol police looked into a report of a man with a crowbar chasing cars on West Street near Airport Drive. Police said in a report of July activity that they just released that they found the man at a nearby home.
The man told the officer that he had been involved in an argument with another man earlier in the day and he thought the vehicle was that man returning. The suspect told police that he did not have a crowbar.

I’m not a physicist, but I’m pretty sure that’s a proven fact. It may even fall under Newton’s first law of motion: an object in motion will not change its velocity unless an external force acts upon it. Except in this case, the objects in motion are our family’s possessions, and the external force is me.
I am on a mission to get rid of our stuff.
