Thought i would post this before everyone starts to bash this trooper!!!

Well, Mr. Citizen,

I guess you've got me all figured out. I seem to fit neatly into the category you placed me in. I'm stereotyped, standardized, classified, grouped and always typical ... I'm the "Lousy Cop." Unfortunately, the reverse isn't true because I can never figure you out. From birth, you teach your children that I'm the bogeyman who will take them to jail if they are bad, rather than someone to go to when they need help, and then you are shocked when they identify me with my traditional enemy, the criminal.
You accuse me of coddling juveniles, until I catch your kid doing something wrong. Then, I must surely be mistaken because you know that your child would never do anything like that. Yeah, right, I have nothing I'd rather do than make up a story about your child and then have to hassle with hours of paperwork so a judge can let him go before I am through. You make take an hour for lunch and several coffee breaks each day, but point me out as a loafer if you see me having just one cup. You pride yourself on your polished manners, but think nothing of interrupting my meal with your troubles.

You raise hell about the guy that cut you off in traffic, but let me catch you doing the same thing, and I am picking on you and should be out there catching the real criminals. You were only keeping up with traffic when I caught you doing 40 mph in that school zone. You know all the traffic laws, But you never got a single ticket you deserved. You cry "foul" if you see me driving fast in route to an emergency call, but literally raise hell if I take more than 10 seconds responding to your call. You call it part of my job if someone strikes me, but it's police brutality if I strike back.

You wouldn't think of telling a dentist how to pull a badly decayed tooth, or your doctor how to remove your appendix, but you are always willing to give me a few pointers on law enforcement, in which you have absolutely no training.

You talk to me in a manner and use language that is offensive, then expect me to stand there and take it without batting an eye. You cry that something has to be done about all the crimes, but you can't be bothered with getting involved. So when you call the police, you refuse to give your name or address or phone number so I can gather information necessary to do anything about the problem you called about. Then you complain because I didn't do anything.

You've got no use for me at all, but of course, it's okay if I stop and change a tire for your wife or deliver your child in the backseat of my patrol car on the way to the hospital. Or it's okay if I save your son's life with mouth to mouth resuscitation, or maybe work many hours overtime to find your lost daughter while my wife and kids wait for me or miss the concert we had tickets for.

So, Mr. Citizen, you stand there on your soapbox and rant and rave about the way I do my job. You gripe because my union tries to make sure I get a decent salary and benefits, but you wouldn't do the job for twice the salary. And although you are retired and drawing two pensions and paying lower taxes than I do because of your age, I am not supposed to want or need a pension or retirement benefits.

You call me every name in the book, but never stop for a minute to think that your property, your family, or maybe your life might depend on one person... me or one of my buddies. Who are you going to call when you need help ... a criminal or me, the lousy cop.

I have known Trooper Tony Allen my whole life, went to school with him, watched him become a good man in our community, so dont go bashing him on here, it was just a wreck, accidents happen, I for one am glad that he is ok so he can continue to serve our community and keep our roads safe for my children and yours!

That guy gave his guardian angel a workout yesterday! I saw footage of his vehicle on ch.18 this morning, and he's very lucky to have escaped with his life from the looks of it.

Godspeed Toney! Hope you are back on the road soon. You're one lucky guy to have walked (or limped) away from that.

I lost a cousin in an accident on 52 in Jan. and wonder why people make so many accusations when things happen. He was the only one in the car and the only one to know what happened. Therefore, as people did with her they are going to make accusations but should be thanking God that it wasn't them. Thanks for all you do officer Allen.
WTF

I can't say what the circumstances behind this accident were. But I have seen officers speeding past me, no lights on, so siren. Most officers do take their authority way to far. They think that because they are in a police car they can break the law by doing things people like me and you would get fined for. I am very happy that this officer was not seriously injured, I wouldn't want to see anyone hurt or worse killed. Truth be told yes, he was probably driving way to fast and disregarding the posted speed limit. But then again I wasn't there so I can't say what actually happened. But I believe police officers should be held to the same laws that the general public is. Obey the posted speed, unless you are responding to an emergency call. Don't use your lights and siren just to keep from having to stop at a traffic light or stop sign. I have great respect for police officers and have made sure that my children were raised to respect law officials, and know that if they are in trouble they should seek the help of an officer. Just my opinion, and I know there are those of you who won't agree with me but then again we can't all agree all the time. And officer Allen I thank God you were not seriously injured.
I agree

Let me start off by saying,I am thankful to the man upstairs that Trooper Allen is okay...
Now, as far as the police officers driving too fast with no lights and sirens on ...at times when someone is being broke in on and other situations they are told they were told to not run them in order to catch the criminals.
Thank you to the police officers who are there when called upon
