It was a law enforcement officer...it's an automatic sentence.
So sad wrote:
Well this was definitely premeditated murder so he will get the death sentence. Let him enjoy his hero days in prison.

Well the newer cruisers would be more difficult to recognize or see, so the old cruiser was bright white...much more visible.

The new cruisers are dang near all black...

Observation.

What a lot of people cannot comprehend is that law enforcement are not super men. They are husbands, fathers, sons, daughters, cousins, and friends. They see the worst from humankind on a daily basis. They show up to fatal car wrecks caused by drunk drivers. They show up to homes where the husband has beat the wife black and blue. They show up to parties where brothers have shot and stabbed one another. They investigate when a five year old has been sexually abused by her uncle. They find teenagers who have overdosed on drugs that have been sold to this child by a drug dealer who they have arrested several times but has been released again by the court system. After all of this, they go home to their families to deal with everyday life like the rest us. Now, I don't know how many people reading this would do this, or could do this for a living, but this is what they deal with every single day. To top it off, they have to deal with the politics of the court system and what they choose to do. Then they have to hear from the public. Not all wearing the badge should, and some over stay their time after witnessing too many incidents difficult for the mind to handle. I think all in all, from the state police post to the local police forces, we are very fortunate and blessed with the men and women we have serving and protecting us. Go to jail tracker and you show me a person in jail that doesn't deserve to be there, and that you are not thankful that the law enforcement put them in there. And I hope they roughed a few up while bringing them into custody (lol).
just curious

"Stupid" is your opinion. We are all entitled to that through the sh@! that spews from our finger tips. Need not judge anothers thoughts. Only one is entiltled to that. Ignore it if you don't like it. Your strongest defense is denying a battle. Hmmmm....
Yes, we are all entitled to our opinion. But when we berate someone for making an assumption when we did the exact same thing, that is hypocrisy. That's not an opinion, that's a fact. Try a little harder next time...your stupid is showing.

STHU!

We're not speaking about the KSP! We're speaking about the local officers that have been said to: conduct illegal searches...harass the general public...get behind cars and flash their lights...and then pull off...hell which local agency had to fire or demote several officers for shopping in the evidence room? umm..think back....again, STHU! the local police are known for 'roughin' suspects up once they're in cuffs...#bitchmove

This will be my last post on this subject. I chose to post to this KSP link because I know they're monitoring it, due to them being the agency whom initiated it.

Please be sure not to share information with any of KSP officers who have strong ties to the local community. As I have witnessed there are at least 2, that work with the state office, not sure if they're considered officers or support staff.

Lastly, my condolences to Ellis's wife, children, parents and all siblings.

I dont care if it is city , county , or state police. Noone deserves to be done this way. There are very very few dirty cops. The ones that are hurt the rest. But in any profession this is the same. Without law enforcement we would not have anything. Im sick of hearing we have a police state. Bitch all you want , but if not for the police as a whole we would be in a horrible sitation. God be with his kids and family through this sad time.

And another thing. This reward money should go to his kids. You shouldnt need reward money to come forward to turn in a murderer. His kids should get the money raised. I wont post again. Those are my thoughts.

I didnt mean that money would change this. I meant or tried to say that a person shouldnt get paid to take a murderer off the street. The kids deserve the community and the state's respect and help for their fathers service to us all. That what I was saying.
