I'm a PA State Trooper. It is RARE for myself, and my co-workers, to stay sober at work. We go to kid's houses (underage) who are drinking, and take their beer. It is really quite a racket. We drink like 15 or 20 beers at the station, and then the fun begins!

I can remember one time, my partner and I had finished a case of Busch and then we got called 'cause Ol Harvey Matterson was pounding on hiis old lady again. We pulled up to Harvey's house, and he was beatin' the snot out of her right in front of his trailer. We threw the boots to 'Harv, and then took him out in the woods to teach him a real lesson. THose were the good ol' days.

I really don't see why you guys are so hard on one guy who got busted while not at work??? Just because he was in his OWN car?

Its nice when we are on patrol. Often times we pull over each other in our cars! It still totally freaks us out when somebody else sneaks up behind us and turns on our lights!!

When you get charged with dui, the judge has to send the paperwork to penndot, otherwise penndot has no idea that you got charged. If stephany domitrrovitch is your judge, you may not lose a thing.

Had they "protected their own", he'd have never been charged to begin with.
Bla bla he's a cop he'll be fine. " Charged " does not mean convicted .Cops think everyone is less than them

Baloney! Speeding may be overlooked, but not a DUI.
Bull crap I've seen police get away with just about everything.which makes it really hard to take when some officers get their jollies crapping all over someone when they could give them a break

A note to all cops out there : if a person is driving after drinking .did not cause any property damage ,was respectful to you ,no speeding etc. you can screw them up bad by way of your testimony . When many of us have seen laws broken by officers it seems that in some cases you could help civilians more. You know like it reads on the car " protect and serve ". Power trip maybe ?
