when i was in FTO i was working a fatal wreck, an old timer (Ron) came over while i was doing an invetory and grabbed a cigarette off the dash board, lighted it and began smoking. i looked at my FTO and didnt know what to say, my fto said "Ron, what are you doing"?

Ron said is a deep Haus Cartwright voice with a build to match: "he aint going to smoke no more unless he goes down there" (pointing at the ground).

What a dirtball! He is sittng on his butt with full pay while we work paying his salary. Any job I know he would be fired period. That police union is brazen to stand up for those type of rights. Worst yet he will pay a fine and that is all. Hell, I bet he even gets his job back.

You don't just all the sudden become the low life that would steal from a dying man.
Makes you wonder what else he's been doing for years.

They can roast his ass for all I care but I feel for his wife and kids.

Fun and games aside, here is a link of the police officers in CT who have been decertified, for whatever reasons.

No, not by a long stretch. The cushiest jobs include working for the DA, working for the state's AGs office, working courts, working gigs that don't involve a lot of anything.

If anything, state policing is often as tough as it gets being out there by your lonesome, and in lots of cases, the state police academy is harder than (example only) a city/county gig.

Granted, in some states everybody goes thru the same academy, but to say that a troopers job is cake is like me saying I'm going to row from Bristol, England to Boston in a week, and then run the Boston Marathon.

It really aint that simple.

I usually agree with you, and I think I do on the point you were making, but I don't think I get the analogy........

Patrol troopers in Alabama ride the gravy train. Troopers are required to standby on highway construction sights here. Part of the job?

No, it's all overtime. The off duty guys close to retirement padded their income by thousands of dollars to pad their pension.

Meanwhile, municipal police and deputies serve warrants and do a helluva lot more than run radar guns.

I had to toss my badge after a bad injury during a training exercise. To this day I can hold my head high and say that at least I tried to to the job. But this ass hat makes anyone who has ever had the honor of wearing a badge look bad. I hope he gets bent over in jail... frequently and painfully.

I can agree to a point. But the only time I been belittled and insulted by a LEO has been troopers. In both states I have lived in. My grandfather is a retired trooper so I have no prejudice but they are a different breed so to speak. I imagine the swing in stand up and corrupt can be greater. No matter what happens LEO is for the greater good (and sometimes a pita for us good citizens that have brain fart). It is a travesty that some bad eggs feel the need to do this. I hope he gets what he deserves.

I know of a former trooper that was caught stealing. He now has a felony conviction and is riding the gravy train. He claimed PTSD or some crap, received a medical retirement, and is getting a check from the state for the rest of his miserable life. Hell, the agency even issued him a retiree ID card.

If that doesn't chap your ass nothing will.

Several years ago a neighboring officer actually took concert tickets from the body of a fatal crash victim. He figured no ne would miss them. He was caught when he went to the concert but the dead guy's family were in the connecting seats....cost him his job as it should have.

Troopers in AL are limited in the amount of overtime they can apply to their retirement. That limit is 20% of their base pay. The majority of the overtime is alloted to the lower ranking (and lower paid Troopers).
Construction zone OT is paid through the DOT and areas with large numbers of construction zones will be required to use other agencies.

Your only run radar gun comment requires only this .

So, at $50k, a trooper can earn $10k of OT. The average salary of the final 3 out of 5 years determines the monthly pension.

These city and county cops are in harm's way more the the troopers.

Yep. Parking behind a bush at 3 AM itching for the chance to write a ticket to the first guy going five over must be real tough.
