My condolence to his family. In the midst of the bad news involving Patrol staff, this reminds us what the average trooper does. They are out there helping and responding to calls to serve the public.

Well, then thank God none of the poor little deers were hurt! Kind of looks like God DID judge their actions, don't it?
He makes a good point, along with some others which were unfortunately deleted.

A tin badge does not grant anyone the right or authority to go flying around out of control on the highway. Further, by failing to control his vehicle, the deceased trooper not only failed the provide the requested backup, but drew resources to his own situation. This debacle will be a great expense to the tax-paying citizens of Ohio.

Thus it is important that this public employee's actions be objectively investigated and judged appropriately, so that measures may be taken to prevent recurrences.

RIP Trooper, our thoughts and prayers are with your family, friends and brethren of law enforcement.

Lord, we ask for courage; Courage to face and conquer our own fears...
Courage to take us where others will not go.

We ask for strength; Strength of body to protect others...
Strength of spirit to lead others.

We ask for dedication; Dedication to our job to do it well...
Dedication to our community to keep it safe.

Give us, Lord, concern; For all those who trust us...
And compassion for those who need us.

And, please, Lord, through it all; be at our side.

Fellow readers, let us not respond to geubux.
At all.

His or her words are extremist and intentionally meant to get a rise. Every comment against this person gives them exactly what they want.

We all know that the poor image of the Patrol is due to the ineptitude of a few bad apples, and is certainly not the result of "every trooper is a screwup at the wave of some magic wand."

Tpr. Baldridge was an asset to the Division before his graduation, and a good friend and family member. His loss is devastating to more people than only Patrol members. He died trying to help another officer.

Don't let geubux taint your kind thoughts. Be safe this weekend behind the wheel.
