Odds are the driver that hit him had been drinking also. Not only do the cops have to worry about gun carrying drug dealers, they also have to beware of stupid drivers. I feel for his family.

This is a perfect example of how and why lawmakers write stupid laws for all of the people must follow.

The average high school drop out will slow down when any cop car is seen on the road. Then, you have the fellow who probably intended to run the trooper down.

A problem in any civilized society is that there are always few who, for what ever reason, just have to be oblivious to the greater good. Running down a Trooper is at the same level of killing rabbits because you couldn't break into a truck.

A sad tale, sympathy to the family and fellow troopers.

The idiot that wrote this is a North Adams loser.More than likely a bum who lives in a tenament house and if the leach works at all it is a minimum wage job due to the fact the idiot is a high school dropout.But more than likey he is shacked up with a fat slob and a couple of disfunctional illigid kids and sponging section 8 and food stamps.Is that you? I bet you also are a drug soaked cigarette smoking tattooed dirtball with your baseball cap on backwards. Your type wouldn't last long without the cops because the rest of us would take care of you and your petty criminal friends in our own way without them.

Just curious; does the "Move Over" law apply to regular motorists who might be standing by their broken down car, or fixing a flat tire, or does it, as I presume, just apply to cops? And don't give me any shit for asking; it's a legitimate question. I'm tired of laws that treat cops as being worth more than the average law-abiding citizen.

Nope, it doesn't. I totally agree with the idea we should do what we can to protect officers, but I CAN see your point. Laws like this, as well as mandatory death-penalty sentences for cop killers and other cop-centric laws have the effect of putting the cops' lives and safty above the citizens they've sworn to "protect and serve", while ideally they should be equal. Good point.

How sad...the base indecency is mind-boggling. I agree with you posters who are clearly here for the right reason. Why is it not protocol for police men and women to move to the shoulder-side of the car? I pulled over once during a snowstorm to unclog my wiper blade and an officer approached me to check things out. I see enough in the news to be paranoid; I asked him to move to the other side of my car. The first thing I learned in driver's ed was never to stand in between two cars pulled over behind each other because of the heinous possibilities. Is there a reason cops have to stand at the driver's side? It just seems so simple...my thoughts are with the friends and family of this officer.
