A very sad day for the law enforcement community in Massachusetts with the death of Trooper Ellen Engelhardt.

Also a reminder of the truly spineless sentence of 2 1/2 years handed down from the judiciary. Sadly Trooper Engelhardt effectively received two sentences: 8 years of pain and suffering and ultimately her untimely and unwarranted death. Certainly one of those times justice should be much more heavy handed.

Condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues at MSP.

Rest easy Ma' am
