It is perfectly appropriate to get mad at the people responsible for enforcing the rules when they break the rules. I personally have only had pleasant experiences with HP (needed their help a couple of times, and received it from officers who actually lived in the towns I was located in at the time, so they're not involved in this). The problem, however, lies in the fact that they enforce the rules on themselves, as well, which creates corruption. There should be an independent organization that oversees law enforcement agencies, they shouldn't be allowed to investigate and police themselves.

Wow, so much hate toward the HP. Why is everyone so bitter? I sure hope one day you need assistance from the HP then maybe your ridiculous assumptions will change.

One thing the article left out is that they are constantly assigning troopers on temporary Duty to other area's and it would be impossible for them to live in there area! I do agree if it is there permanent assigned area they should live by the rule!

The state highway patrol will not follow any rules of the road. They will kill you if you get in their way. They speed so much, they endanger lives every day. If they are in pursuit of someone, they will do anything to make a stop. They WILL kill you if you happen to be in their way. And, the number of speeders they stop is a joke. They say they care. THEY DO NOT. Their actions speak more than their words. So much blood is on their hands.

About time our eyes are open to Law Enforcement, many think they are above the law and abuse their rules, less go back follow the guide lines, move closer to work or resign. Again caught with your hands in tax payer pockets

The ones who were untruthful should be fired as it's a firing offense and always has been unless you were within certain circles
