Unbelieveable comment. I certainly hope anyone who has lost someone and it makes this paper doesn't read the comments.

Bill, are you now or, have you ever been incarcerated? Typically, people with your disdain for Law Enforcement Officers are criminals.

Have a nice day.

i believe the patrol and some other public safety people are funded by license and registration fees. it's been that way for some time. the some money from new late fee on registration fees also went to the patrol. im not sure where the rest went. i guess you could call renewing your license/tags a tax since it is required by law. however, the state general fund does not pay for the patrol. so when tickets are issued what little money goes back to the state it goes to the general fund.(the majority of fines go to the court) this keeps patrolmen from becoming revenue generaters for the state. if anthing, the are revenue generaters for courts who make millions in some areas. with that being said im sure a strong showing of officers meant a lot to the family.
which is who it was for. sounds like some haters are constitutionalists or militia. either, crazy people who cant fit in with society and realize its not the 1700s.

This is a typical response from statists who support the jack booted thugs. I have yet to be incarcerated.

I hope you have a horrible day.

I'm sure you did. Worshiping the state makes you feel special and warm inside. Do you watch video clips of SWAT teams stomping kittens on their 4am no knock raids? I bet you do.

It would be interesting to see how many tax dollars went to this. Not that the kids death wasnt sad the 500 cops at his service is a diservice in my book. Its just a show of government worship and a job they consider sacred and has nothing to do with the one who died or his family. How come the same ones didnt make it to the little girls funeral who died in a snow bank or any number of other tragedies? Its because they serve themself and worship themself.

I can see you are only capable of childish ad hominem attacks. It is a typical trait of those who worship the state.

The Ohio State Hi-way Patrol is nothing more than a glorified tax agency. To oder flags flown at half staff is rediculas. This patrol man didn't die while defending a taxpayers life, preventing theft from a tax payer, nor defending the Governor. He died because he couldn't drive properly for the conditions. I can feel some compashion for the family left behind, but Flags at half staff is now becoming meaningless.

Yes, just like I said before. You must lead a very "interesting" life. Let me guess, you were "educated" in a government school, right?
