Master of Deception
Posted in the New Roads Forum

Today on WAFBTV ch.9, Mayor Kip Holden described retired State Trooper and (now)former Cheif of Police, Dwayne White a "Master of Deception"! Sound familiar? Our retired State Trooper and now Sheriff "Bud" Torres has been identified in the past by the description, "Master of Deception"! Is this a trend in State Police? Are our Troopers trustworthy? For the most part, I believe that the vast majority of our Troopers are honest and trustworthy. But, I think they should be more accountable to the public than they are. The state Civil Service laws put a wall between the state employees and the public! I know for a fact that Bud Torres has no problem lying to anyone about anything. A few bad apples in the bunch can give the good apples a bad smell.

"More Accountable??" "The state Civil Service laws put a wall between the state employees and the public" Are you kidding me???
If you have a problem with some FORMER troopers, so be it. But DON'T tear down the reputations of the troopers that go out on the road EVERYDAY and put their lives on the line!! There is no telling when some looney-tune is going to pull a gun on them during a traffic stop. They work 12-hour shifts, day and night, in all kinds of weather. On their off-days, they have to go to court on some of their tickets and traffic accidents they investigate. If not court, they have accident reports to fill out and tickets to turn in.
They haven't gotten a pay raise in YEARS!!! One of the perks to being "state employees"!
Roscoe, next time you're in an accident on one of our highways, call a boy scout!

I said that I thought for the most part the majority of the Troopers were honest and trustworthy. Read it!

Everyone complains and hates police officers for doing their job until they need help themselves. Like spider said, next time you need help, don't call the police if you hate them so much.

I have nothing against police officers, never said I did! I pointed out a comparison between what Mayor Holden said as to what has been said about Bud Torres. I also stated, not in the same words, that I did not think that all State Troopers were the same. Not all Police officers and/or deputies are the same. Another point I was trying to make was that under civil service these troopers were not answerable public, that's where I said there was a wall between them and the public. Nowhere did I say anything bad about the police as a whole! You should read the whole statement before you start making statements and taking things out of context.
