As far as the trooper that was arrested, it's just sad. I think he might have had some issues in his life and took its toll for the worst. You have bad apples everywhere, whether the department has 5 guys or over 2000. However, for a department with over 2000 officers, a bad apple once in a while is not bad, statistically.
not to sound like a jerk but do you think you'd be saying poor guy, oh he needs help, oh there's always a few bad apples, etc. if he wasn't a "supper trooper" think about that, he's a criminal regardless of whether or not he wears a badge.
Dungie, that was a different trooper; there are currently two in a bit of trouble. The jerk who [allegedly] put his gun in his wife's mouth pled not guilty yesterday.
It is sad to see people's lives get to this state - especially if they had enough integrity to be a Trooper, that's a long fall. Hope he's alright, but as Col. Foley said last night - "He made his bed, and now he has to lie in it."
Randbo, I'm calling up your teacher, you are repeating second grade again. Can you PLEASE make a reasonable attempt to read your posts before submitting them? This has gotten well beyond simple mistakes - you should be embarassed at this point.
Thanks, I have nothing against MSP! Well, I was just wondering if everyone saw that on the news. But since everyone has to be rude and make fun of the kid with fat fingers, and jump down his throat for no reason then that’s fine to!
And it is sad that he got addicted. But the idiot who beat his wife I hope the inn has room for him!! Looks like could possible be 2 more opening in the MSP academy j/k!
It's funny how most of the people bashing the troopers, are the same people complaining the class was just cancelled. wannabes. It doesn't matter if they are troopers or locals, its a cop that screwed up. If that was your uncle joe the plumber would it make the front page.
Someone needs to go back to school and ask for a refund, considering the way they spell.
I agree with masstroopers...I too will not pass judgment on either of these two troopers (or any
trooper or officer for that matter). I have seen first hand how things professionally and
personally can go down the tubes for a fellow officer. Sometimes we see it coming and we as
fellow officers need to get them the help they may need. Sometimes it is a complete suprise.
As every suspected criminal, they are innocent until proven guilty. Most of the facts we know
about these cases are through the media (and you know how much they love us).
Remember these people that are accused of wrongdoing are the MINORITY and not the picture
of the entire department. But it still makes us all look bad.
whoa! Masstrooper1, you need to relax! That comment about two open slots was clearly a joke, I don't think anyone would want to step into "your" academy as you put it with an attitude like that. Let's all realize that trooper or not what those two BROTHERS did was against the law and should be prosecuted the same as any other person on the street.
