Nice to see the MSP getting what they deserve.

I thought people were innocent until proven guilty JoeC? Even if he is a State Trooper, he is entitled to "equal justice under the law" regardless of his job or profession, just like everyone else.
Christopher D’Arpino September 23, 2012 at 12:06 PM
This is clearly a person who has a drinking problem and clearly should not have done what he is accused of doing. Having said that, saying he gets what he deserves because he is a MSP trooper is unfair. He should get what the justice system determines he deserves and i hope that includes help. His actions could have altered the lives of othersif he was in a n accident and his actions will effect his family and children as well. They are innocent victoms in this and did not ask for their world to be turned on its head. Being hateful toward police for doing their jobs is silly and immature. You hate them when they get you but happy when they get someone else... you dont want them in your business but get frustrated when they wont "do ore" to get into someone elses.. How many troopers were buried last year while merely doing their job? Maybe just maybe JoeC, when they pull you over they think they are just giving you YOU what YOU deserve... be thankful the SPD did their job really well and got this person off the streets so he couldnt hurt anyone and SPD did their job in a way we all can be proud to call them our police force...
