Thank you for your post CT Trooper.
And I have a question for you in regards to "delivering the bad news". As hard as it is, it has to be done.
As far as a minor being killed, do the police HAVE to notify the parents? Or can anyone?
I'm only asking because Sean's parents never got a call the night of the accident, not until a week later did they hear anything from the police officially. They found out that night form a friend of sean's, who called and asked "is it true?" with the parents not knowing anything.
I'm curious as to how this works?
Any help would be great!
To answer your question, yes, it is the job of the officer to make notification. The notification should not take a week. A few hours perhaps, but not a week. Of course, the investigation is a different story. That can take quite some time.

As I said to another member, who posted a rude reply similar to yours, I'll reply in the same fashion. Sir, the donut jokes are quite old. If this is your attempt at upsetting me, insulting me or just showing an overall lack of respect, it will not work. During my time, I've been called worse.

As for being fat, due to the nature of this job, which is primarily done from the car, I feel that it is very important to stay in shape and be healthy. I work out 3 times a week, and do a form of cardio 5 days a week, 3 of the 5 include running, with the other 2 being a lower impact exercise.

Good day.

CT Trooper.....I think it's shameful that you guys have to read that kind of crap from people who are just plain ignorant. None of them could do your job. They are like the morons that think they can call plays better than NFL head coaches.

Nobody stops to think that you guys put your lives on the line each day you go to your job. And for what ? To protect me and the rest of the people in this state....yes to even protect morons like that Dr K character.

I am sure there are some bad cops just like their are bad accountants, bad programmers, bad doctors, etc. But I think, just as in the other professions, they are few and far between. I, for one, am sick and tired of all the police bashing I hear and read. The last time I ever got a speeding ticket, which has to be about 15 years or more now, I was stopped for going too fast through a construction area. I should have been stopped even though I was just over the normal posted speed limit for that section of Interstate 91. But I should have slowed down. The state trooper who stopped me was as courteous and professional as he could possibly be. Of course, I wasn't a beligerent moron like some people are even when they know they screwed up. He explained to me why it's important to slow down through a construction zone. And you know what ? Because of how he handled the situation that day and how he spoke to me, I ALWAYS slow down for the construction workers now, even if some bozo is behind me crawling up my tail.

I tip my hat to all of you guys and thank you for doing a job very few of us could do.

Sir,

Thank you again for a very well thought out post. I certainly understand that there are 2 groups, one that appreciates the police and one that doesn't. There will always be some that don't understand what the day to day job is like. One key element of this job is having a very thick skin.

As I said in another post, I can't speak for every officer out there, but speaking for myself, I go out and do my job and provide a service to the very best of my ability. Its nice to know that there are some that are thankful.

Have a great day.

Poor baby - how would the trooper know what the locals did?
They were pulling bodies from everywhere including a couple that were lucky Sean did not kill them as well.
I am sure they were doing their best to clean up Sean's murder and mess
Pray for the victims and their families -
Sean is dead and will not kill again is what keeps up going each day

Dr. K hit the nail on the head. Nowadays no one is expected to live with the consequences of their actions. Why is that?

People have to learn that death is a consequence. Live with it.

Mr E, Dr K, I am actively praying for your salvation. Seeing as how you two are pieces of shit, and feel that you can judge from some sort of predetermined pedestal, shows that you can't get over a fuckup. Why do you enjoy this? Does it feel right? Do you feel a certain twinge when you let everyone know you were right and they should be perking their ears up? Get the fuck over yourselves, There is no reason to drag this shit out. If there is some sort of need to do this, let me know. I would love to discuss this over coffee. I just want to know why you would focus your energies on this one case. Sean was not nor will be the last teen to fuck up severely. Why drag the parents through this muck? No matter how hard you scumbags try, there is no way to blame this shit on the parents. Quote, justify, prejudge, what have you. Sean made the decisions during the last moments of his and his friends lives. If you people have such a hard time with that, then please, put yourselves in exactly the same situation........but don't f up.....everyone........includi ng people you never met before.....will judge you based on what you decide to do.......or not do.......you are under the scope. God help you. Tough shit, right?

I just want to clarify that Sean did infact buy the car himself. His parents did NOT pay for it. They were paying for his schooling, and he has been working since he was 14. Please stop blaming the Landry's. How about the 17 year old boy from Wolcott who had a previous DUI and STILL got his license back within the year, not to mention was bought a car made for racing? Please give the Landry Family a break!!

ok listen not evey kid cant have a car like this my boyfriend had one and now has a even nicer car that halls it but you dont see him doing this shit... it depends on the guy or even GIRL driving the car...some dont think they just do. I am not pointing fingers i was very close with myles and knew sean, alyssa, and jordan...
They didnt deserve this so everyone just shut the mouth and be respectful of these 4 young kids who lost their lives and stop writing disrescpetful stuff about them!
