Gurley Police... Seriously??

Ok, I have a good upcoming post about integrating Verisign Identity Protection with OpenSSO. I'm reading through the EUL again to make sure I don't violate any Verisign policies before I post on it. Hopefully I can post later today. With that said, I really have to vent about a strange experience with Gurley, AL police yesterday. I was driving over to Hunstville, AL from Atlanta for a friend's wedding. I'm heading West on Highway 72. There was a wreck right at Little Cove Road and 72, which is where I need to exit. So, I drive another 30 yards, turn into an Exxon station which backs up to Little Cove Road. I'm now on Little Cove Road past the wreck. About 500 yards down, there is a Gurley Police car blocking the road refusing to allow me to go away from the wreck! He's actually forcing people to turn around and go back toward the accident. Needless to say, I wasn't happy about this display of ignorance. Turned around, got back on 72 West, Drove 1/2 mile further, turned on Rock Cut rd, turned on Little Cove rd about 200 yards on the other side of the officer. The whole time shaking my head and wondering why people don't use their brain like they should.
