Parke County. Covered Bridge Capital of the world?? Come visit the bridges??
If you go to Parke County Indiana BEWARE of Trolls that live near ANY of the bridges. Especially McCallister Bridge!! The people that live near that bridge are violent!! My family parked near that bridge and we were attacked by a crazy old man who threatened to "cut our tires and then go get his shotgun and blow our heads off". As we tried to leave, he rammed our car with his yard cart causing over $2500 in damage!! But since his wife is pals with the court system in Parke County, my family has been brought up on criminal charges!! The man that rammed our car was drunk and we were on the CR 400. Did the Rockville Police issue a sobriety test? NO! Was the man charged with assult with a vehicle? NO!! Instead, my family is being charged with crimes!! This is wrong!! We are in America's Heartland!! And yet prejudice is obvious in this case. From the prosecuter's office to the county sherriff's office as well as the Rockville police department!! Parke County is CORRUPT! BEWARE!! They invite you to "visit our covered bridges", and then they charge you with trespassing if you do!!!

Unfortunately, worse things than this have happened & have been covered up.

Well at least now the people that go mushroom hunting every year in Parke County and have come back to find their tires cut know who is doing it! Sounds like this Troll likes to slice tires.

Somehow I am not surprised that an individual can not only be a total ass about an innocent venture that is solicited by his state but, the county as well for falsely advertising a "must see tourist attraction" when in fact you are putting your property and potentially your life in jeopardy as the mad troll roams looking for tires to slash and mushroom hunters to terrorize. It sounds to me like there maybe some of those shrooms with the pretty purple rings and he found them all! Covered bridges? Sounds like duck, cover your head, and run to me. What a loser to get so irate over mushrooms provided wildly in nature by nature where there is no ownership (as if you own anything in the US anyway, pfffft, get real!. Many people including the writer of this post have hunted mushrooms in that area for decades, spent money in Park County business, restaurant, hotels, etc...Hopefully the tourism revenue for Parke County noticing a devastating drop in Parke County revenue's over the coming summer and onward from there. The Blair Witch idea has already been taken Troll but I bet if you hard enough out in the woods yourself you can find some nice nightshade or maybe even some hemlock which from what I hear is great in chili, try it sometime.

Some friends of mine had all 4 of their tires flattened in Parke County while hunting morels. Not sure if it was the same troll or bridge but from what I have heard, it happens every year in Parke County but the cops can never seem to figure out who is doing it. Well they should have a clue now! And what comes around, goes around. Payback is a bitch. One day this troll will meet his match. God will have his judgment on such a person!

not to say that any of these activites are right in any way but you first need to have the land owners permission to enter any private property. any item on that property in the land owners and they can decide how there property is used

I grew up in a small town in Parke County. My friends and I lived for the days we could sit by the road and have tourists ask for directions to the nearest bridge. Let's just say we were the little tour guides from Hell. Hard telling where those people ended up. We hated the tourists; asking stupid questions like "what do they do with the bridges in the winter time?" "how were they supposed to get their car across when it said they had to 'cross this bridge at a walk'". We hated how they seemed to infilter everything from our neighborhoods, crowding us out of our own favorite eating place, causing traffic to back up from downtown to Billie Creek. They even had the audacity to ask if they could use our bathroom because they were so far out in the country. Did we want those tourists trampling thru our property and our lives? Hell no!! The only people welcoming them were the ones who made a buck, not your average farmer or small town dweller. Slicing tires and threatening with a shotgun in overboard, but that aside, see it from our view.

Sorry, misspelled : Slicing tires and threatening with a shotgun IS going overboard.

Interesting that last post. I lived near a very popular tourist attraction for years as a child and young adult. And I used to sit in my front yard and watch the cars drive by at a snails pace and even come to a stop sometimes for 10 minutes or more.
But instead of being mischievous and try to give wrong directions or being just plain rude to the "tourists", we smiled and waved and said welcome to our town! Enjoy your stay!
This was our attitude because we were proud of the fact that people would drive for hours to come and see what we had in our town!!"Where are you from?" we would ask some of them. And some of their answers were surprising! People were coming to our town from some very far distances!! How cool is that??
We didn't allow our home to become a public restroom of course and no one should. But the motto here in Indiana is "Hoosier Hospitality". So I guess from what I read here, that only applies if you are not in Parke County.
Now if a person or persons were on my personal property without my permission, I would definitely ask them or even tell them to leave. But to wait until they are out of sight of their vehicle and then cause damage to their vehicle by slicing tires or any means, is just wrong. And someone being on your property does not justify death or being threatened with death or property damage.
I've heard about the property damage reports that flood in during Morel season in Parke County, I've even read about it in Newspapers.
People like the one that threatens with a shotgun and slices tires and people who cannot show some class and pride for the uniqueness of their hometown, should probably live somewhere less popular. That way you can live in your own little world and let those who do have pride for the town or attraction be there to represent you town in a positive manner.

were any tires actually cut? was anyone actually threatened with a shotgun? did someone refuse to leave after the property owner asked them to?

To troll....YES!! My uncle's tires were sliced while parked near that bridge just last year!! And some old crazy bastard on a yard cart threatened my uncle saying "I'll get my shotgun and blow your head off if I see you parked here again". Cops did nothing about it because there were no witnesses to the tires being sliced or to the threats made.
So Troll, if you or any other Parke County residents can't be anymore hospitable then that. Then here's to hoping that someday you threaten or slice the tires of the wrong person and they blow your ugly head clean off your shoulders. People like you are nothing more than low life scum, and if it came down to it you aint got the balls to do squat. I only hope that whoever it is that has done this to these people get what is coming to them......big time!!

Wonder if there is something there that they are trying to hide?
I agree that trespassers are breaking the law, but if someone is on a public county road...

Do the local LEOs not enforce trespassing violations? What about abandoned vehicles?
Can you not have an abandoned vehicle towed?

Pay my taxes and you can trespass, throw your trash out and pick anything on my property! I don't go to your town and pick your flowers out of your yard do I? No...people are tired of others coming and taking what is not theirs.

It's only trespassing when you are on the ACTUAL owners property. Neighboring county or state property that touches YOUR property is not YOURS! And the covered bridges are owned by the county I believe. There is also a 10 foot easement along side of any county or state owned road, gravel or otherwise.
If a person really dislikes people parking near their property or if they really want to get the point across that they do not want trespassers near or on their property, wouldn't it make more sense to go to the hardware store and spend what maybe $2.00 to buy a No Trespassing sign? Would make a lot more sense than damaging peoples property or threatening to kill them. And likely save a lot of headaches. But you can't fix stupid, so you will always find the trolls out there. Get a clue people. It's 2010, not the dark ages of vigilante justice and taking the law into your own hands.
