If one of those little punk cop's was to ever do me that way. I'd find his home. It would make the "world" news then.

At least mccoy had him to where he couldn't move. I'd messed that little baby up. They have a badge, think their "God". Those grey bellies are just a bunch of little girls, that like to use the 4 lane, and their badge for a toy. To hell with them. Hope he "The Trooper" get's it good.

Susan,please do a survey and you will find that the bad will out do the good.I live there 32 years and I am the first to tell you that I watch a deputy sheriff put a gun to a young man head,told him he was under arrest,young man ask for what and where is the warrant,Mr.Salyer replied that he did not need a dam warrant,he was shaking and telling him to hurry get his dam shoes on cause he was going to jail,for a few minutes we thought he was just showing off in front of us young ladies but hell none of us would not make it to Donald Trump door,let along fill out the beauty papers. Did you ever wonder why the sheriffs car stays at Hellier,Ky. and how many trips he has been drove to Lexington Ky. on our taxpayers money.Drive up and down Hellier Ky. better known as Pigg Valley and then people wonder why such bad things happen,God didnt put us here for other to abuse and I am the first to tell you I have heard them brag about beating and stomping their guts out,would you want this brave gray uniform to pay you or your family a visit?

I am from Pike co., "Belfry". I now live and work in Logan WV. I've followed this story, and it disturbs me. I would have made the Trooper beg for his life. KSP has always been known to get a badge, and then they get this "False sense of Power". The MCcoy boy should of NEVER let the him go when he had him. He should of cuffed him, got on the radio, and asked for help. This Trooper has had his ass kicked all through school. He was the one under the bus seat that everybody kicked. He's just a coward. WV. DPS isn't much better. They run over 100 MPH on the four lane, Deputies too, have road checks on a four lane, "which is "Illegal" to do on a federal funded highway. Their time is coming also. Good-Luck to you Mr. MCcoy. You are now worth millions on millions. No, i have NEVER been in trouble with the law before. Never been pulled over even. Just my 2 cents.

Loydd, when did it become illegal to road check on a federal highway? Are you an attorney or Judge? I think you need to check your facts or call your prosecutor and make sure you know what your talking about.

You know everytime an incident like this occurs everyone wants to point fingers and put down the entire law enforcement community. Think about this; the next time your in a car wreck, who will be the first there? Whenever you car or home has been broken into, who are the men and women that secure it and arrest the perp. Before you all jump to conclusions rememeber McCoy was not totally innocent that day. I believe he sustained "street justice".

Tootsie, you do not believe that it is illegal to road check on a federal highway?

What is the logic behind that statement?

The whole every official is corrupt theory makes you sound like a nutcase.

Loyd322 show me a law that says it is illegal to road check on a federal highway. Do a google search. I am sure the federal government would not permit something illegal happening on their highways if it were illegal.

Almost every road around here is a federal highway.

I grew up in KY. YES, i work in a kind of law enforcement job. Ky. is a "commonwealth state", it dosen't have to go by the laws set forth by the "Government. They have "Commonwelth status". I come from Logan to Belfry from time to time. WV. DPS is set up on the four lane in Williamson. NO DUI check point sign 1 mile ahead set up. Read your state blue book. It has to be a divided highway. ANY road that is concrete is usally funded by federal monies. Thats why they have to salt it first in the winter. By LAW, they CANNOT hold a "ROAD CHECK" on these funded highways, unless there is a federal officer with them.(Usally just for drugs). KSP has their road checks on the other side of Williamson, on the bridge, where it is divided. They do not get in the four lane. I have seen this. WV. on the other hand "thinks" were just dumbasses, so they do it. Every road around here is NOT a federal highway. What a STUPID remark. I have seen Williamson P.D. sitting all the way past Nolan, and Millers creek. WAY out of city limits. I know of a few people who have had their tickets threw out for this. Usally the Chief himself took care of it. For WV. not to be a "Commonwealth" state, they sure do act like it, by making their own rules. Trust me. I know what i'm talking about. I've seen people walk from a DUI, but they keep it hushed. Just need the right attorney(s):>)) This is off topic anyway. This is about that asshole Trooper. Yes, we do have freedom of speech also. IMHO ... He's a chickenshit asshole. You'll here more of this little coward when other people come forward. Go to the Libary. NOT the internet .. get a WV. or KY. blue book and read it. Google? Thats LAME !!!!

After reading these posts, I realize how truly ignorant most people are about law enforcement. In documented court testimony, McCoy admitted to grabbing the trooper in a bear hug, and threatening him. The trooper bit his arm to get free, because in a bear hug, McCoy could have gotten the troopers weapon. Then McCoy, not wanting to stay in jail, told corrections officers he wanted to kill himself, so that is a free trip to Hazard ARH. There wasn't any beating, no gun put to the head, no broken ribs.... The trooper responded exactly how he was trained. What really bothers me is how truly stupid most people are in Pike Co. You make ridiculous statements, thinking you have some knowledge, when you don't. Do us all a favor, get the facts before you speak. The posts I have read indicate most of you have legal troubles, and the way you speak, probably drugs!

sorry for making any statement on here what about justice yes truth maybe you believe the papers but I know whatever will sell a paper is what the headline is and McCoy is only one speaking all of you should have more respect because without law it would be real scary. And Tootise I know some go to far****** But deal with this awhile think about your life on the line everyday. Trying to protect and serve is almost out the door for all of us and if a road block stops a dui from killing one of my childern or grandbaby have it anywhere you won't

Ima Doolittle,

you sure are one. Go up your meds. If you are acussing me of using drugs, then i'll have you in court. You better say "in my opion". No legal troubles either. I help people with legal troubles. Another thing. Learn how to read a paper, and read where the MCcoy man stated ... "That was the "second" time he took him to the mine site, and he "The chickenshit Trooper started beating him again, but only MCcoy got his ass. I hate to let people i'm from Pike County, KY. See ya Doolittle !!

You help people with legal troubles? I don't think watching CSI or Law and Order makes you a paralegal, or whatever you are claiming to be.

Well said, it sounds like you have done some thinking on this subject. You are one person of a few who appreciates police officers, and I thank you for that. Some of my faith in humanity has been restored. Thank you

Kentucky does not have D.A.'s(District Attorney), it's called County Attorney(Prosecutor). Do you live in Kentucky?.... or the planet ZOG?

Loyd,

A blue book? Now why would federal statues be in a WV or Ky blue book. If it is a law I am sure it is online. I want to see the specific wording. Or better yet show me the specific Supreme Court decision or USC concerning this.

To someone who does not know any better you come off sounding as if you know what you are talking about. I have seen KSP roadcheck on U.S. 23 on the Pike/Floyd line.

From internet reading NHSTA gives law enforcement money for highway safety. I would not imagine why NHSTA would give out millions of dollars not to enforce traffic laws on every other road but federal highways? NHSTA is a federal agency?
If you can show me the LAW as you put it I will shut my mouth then and never speak of this topic.

Another thing that strikes me as strange: You work in a kind of law enforcement job? If you work in law enforcement then why do you believe all these accusations to be true?

Why are you speaking such bad things about another police officer? Why would you take a criminals word over another police officer?

I myself do not know what happened in this case
but unlike you I am not going to act like I do.

Do not try to bluff everyone on here by claiming to be a police officer.

I did not say every highway is a federal highway. I said most and approximately 100 miles of roads in Pike County are U.S. highways 23, 460, 119.

You have a deep hate of police officers from someone in a KIND of law enforcement job. I think you have more of an involvement in this case than just a passing interest, why dont you tell everyone what it is?

Doolittle,

I know KY. has a "County Attorney". I know Harry Keith well. Very well. I am NOT a police officer. As for the road checks on "four lane" highways. KY. IS A COMMONWEALTH STATE. THEY CAN DO IT IF THEY WANT ... PEORID. THE END.
Believe it or not .. i have friends that are police officers. "most" drive more inpaired than the people they take to jail. Sitting here thinking, i know four KSP officers well. Seems funny that the "commonwealth state of KY. wanted to settle with Mr. MCcoy, but his attorneys shot them down. Lets put it this way. You'll hear more about it. Then you'll see. As for you "simp". I know what happened, and i don't/can't have to tell you ANYTHING. Law Enforcement CAN sit on a FOUR LANE, they can run radar etc... but NO DUI CHECK POINTS.
KY. can, because of their commonwealth status. Read the Internet ...LOL, Yeah, i believe everything i read on the internet. Do you know what a divided highway is? Can't you just go to your local libary? AGAIN KY. CAN DO AS THEY PLEASE. Seems funny that most KSP Troopers that knew The "chickenshit" Trooper said this was coming. Doo"nothing" you are all over this site. Do you work, or just sit around in your underwear all day on a computer picking your nose?:>)) Hey DooNothing .. How do we solve Dr. shopping. Oh! That might be more of Shimps'... i mean Simps' thing. Oh! I forgot Shimp. You asked "WHY WOULD I TAKE A CRIMINALS WORD OVER A POLICE OFFICER"? Do you believe all police officers? What if one pulled you over, got smart, and you said something, he takes you to a strip mine .. TWICE, and beats the shit out of you. If i was on the jury. I think i would believe the police officer. Case closed. What a stupid question. I had a Trooper tell me once, "i will not say which state", but he said "As soon as you get behind the steering wheel of you car, you are a criminal." You people better wake up, before it becomes a police state. Especally a Commonwealth state. Think about that. Well, everyone have a nice day. I have to get some more work in.

Jeeez, what a stumbling, bumbling dope head you are. Do you have any idea what "Commonwealth" means? I agree with you Simp, he does have some connection to this case. I do work sir,and I work very hard for idiots like you and the other pill heads, and you would be surprised where.

Simp, you seem like an intelligent person. Keep an open mind on this case, just because he is a police officer does not make him automatically guilty, or innocent. There is more to this than meets the eye. I am waiting for the facts to come out. Whoever this guy loyd322 is friends with, I would question their honesty as police officers.

And yes, I am all over this site, to inject some intelligence into a what has been "one-sided, stupid conversation".

DooNothing,

I am NOT a police officer. I DO NOT know Mr. MCcoy. Go pop another pill, before you blow a o-ring. You're just an asshole. You don't work !!!!! From what i gather ... I'd say you live around Magoffin co., if not in it. What an IDIOT you are. What grade did you quit in? You just pretend to know EVERYTHING. Seems funny that people are sick of you. Go ponder that for a while, or can you think clearly? HA! That was a stupid question. You remind me of "Percy" from "The Green Mile"..LOL. Have a nice life IdIOT.
