Of course the Courant missed the story of Troopers who responded to a burglary in Norfolk on Christmas Eve where all of the families gifts were stolen. The Troopers went out and personally replaced the gifts for the family so they would be able to enjoy their Christmas despite the burglary at their home.

Thanks Channel 3 for reporting this story!

Keep smokin it pal! The joint was NOT the story, however I'm sure your fried mind couldn't figure that out! You are right, it is embarassing and you have proved that.

Why don't all you trooper basher's take it elsewhere. Hats off to Trooper O'Donnell and Arek for many jobs well done and to the rest of the CT State Police.
CTMomof2, people bash the troopers because they are doing their job, if they didn't do their job they would still be bashed. Police and any government workers can not win. Good job troopers.

Its true, we should spend our money fighting real crime. A half a joint. Please. The people who care about a half joint have rods shoved so far up their as$es that it impairs their driving more than some stoned dude

Yeah until that stoned dude hits one of your family members while driving his car. Then you'd be crying "Where were the State Police? They should have stopped this guy".

Stoned people are not the problem. Ignorant people are. Its a matter of economics and stoned people pose less of a threat than the uneducated person may be able to understand.

You are correct..ignorant people are the problem. As ignorant as you thinking the story was about the dog finding half a joint.

The article was not about the joint but about drugs overall. Personally, and its sad to say, that many times one bad apple ruins the bunch, but I don't think its fair to lump all LEOs into the same group. There are many city, town and state officers that put their lives on the line everyday.

I thought it was a great article and kudos to the trooper and his k9 partner!

THe movie K-9 was the first time we saw the action of a human and dog, in that case a german shepard. IN the movie the dog was so talented that the "SYNDICATE" had a contract out on his life. Turner and Hooch was also another great, with tom hanks and the slobbering eyewitness to his formers masters murder. Hanks takes the orphaned dog who can identify the culprit. THis is all tied into a more complex plotline involving a real estate develpoment plan hindered by the old mans refusal to sell to him. K-9 would be more relatable to Arek, and i bet he has seen the movie and is a fan. I thought that Pot was harmelss drug and that those that dealt in it were pacifists, however the killing of Jason Argesinger from Chester shows up how serious people are about big bucks. Let me present something.....these busts increase the cost of drugs and thus makes people more violent.......I do not know that answer to the drug question......but it is good to see that this dog takes his job serioulsy.

Don't worry... this positive article is just to soften us up. I am sure it will be followed by the Courant bashing the CSP. At least, that is what history dictates.

I'm sick of Courant articles touting success in the war on drugs. Not to bash the cop or the dog, but the price and purity of heroin and cocaine are at historical lows. And how is using a dog not unreasonable search? We're sacrificing more and more liberties every day, and the Courant is on the sidelines, cheering for the man.

If the reporter had done a story on the dog improving after the trooper smoked half of a marijuana cigarette then most on the blog would be better satisfied.
