The governor could easily save lots of $$$$$$ by getting rid of the Mississippi Highway Patrol or at least trim it back some so that they just provide security to state officials. This crap of paying them to go to ballgames and just run up and down the road and working wrecks and writing tickets is for the birds. If they want to keep them let them start helping the police and sheriff's out and answer domestic call. We need State Police....not highway patrol! Save some money and get rid of the patrolmen.

The MS Highway Patrol does more than what you just mentioned. They do assist county and city law enforcement upon request. Many ppl do not understand that by writing a few tickets and bieng seen could possibly be saving lives. Taking dui drivers off the road is enabling others who drive the roads of MS to feel safer. I thank all Troopers for the job they do. To JohnnyBGood I ask that you figure out what the Troopers do before saying to do away with them.

I thank the troopers for all that they do. Just the other day I was stopped by a MS Trooper. He stopped me for swerving in the roadway. He was very professional. After talking to me he rrlized I was tired and not under the influence of any substance he let me go advising me to stop somewhetr and rest. He was right I was putting others lives at risk by driving sleepy. I pulled over at next town. He possibly saved my life as well as others. Thank you troopers for what you do.

To the first your research before throwing out empty comments. Check the DUI'S and drug arrest that the highway patrol take off the highways that your and my family drive on everyday!
