Sounds like we went to the same high school...

Yes, my experience as well. My father once mentioned that many policemen were really criminal types, but with a license. I always thought that a little radical, but I'm more convinced that's true, as time passes. In high school in my small home town in Wisconsin, the football field was ripped up right before a big game by kids doing "dough-nuts" on it the night before. Both of these fine, upstanding examples of youth became policemen, and one of them is now the chief of police.



When you think about it, what type of person, but someone with a desire for authority and control over others would want a job like being a policeman? This guy should die of a heart attack, so his family can replace him with a "real man."

LOL, no, but MO's search engine is better than Google.
If you can remember a key phrase from the original post, you can find that post real quickly.
The only thing MO's search engine doesn't seem to find is comments associated with MO's reader polls.</p>


For example, by remembering the phrase "free society," I was able to find one of Martin's true gems in under two minutes. ( Martin is such a generous and unassuming person. It's fun to taunt him with his decorated past.)</p>


Give it a try </p>

I sent a response to the Connecticut Governor's office and actually received a response. I recommend you all do the same. This is a chance to get involved and deal with unwarranted and ridiculous law enforcement bigotry against motorcycles.



If you sit here and do nothing, you are only hurting yourself.

Email/Call the Office.



They need to get a ton of calls and emails. What an embarassment to the state. I also called the State Police barracks to complain. They guy should have apoligized himself.

Make it simple. This is just the way that any blue stater would normally behave.

Complaining to an email address won't change anything. The rider is still dead, the Trooper is still an a$shole, and tomorrow is another day.



How's that for optimism?

Its nice to vent, but, he did route emergency response units on a timely manner, his phone-side manner sucked. Personally, I am more upset about Conn. trying to pass a bill to completely ban offroad riding in the state.

Default Down with Blue

More and more, common law-abiding citizens are becoming more and more negative about cops.



The attitude displayed here is a contributing factor...



Another is the ever increasing number of incidents where police kill citizens in questionable circumstances.



I've said it 100 times before.



Cops suck.
