So sad, this man left his family this morning to never return, makes my heart break.

Sometimes we are so helpless.

It is indeed sad, but you also have to consider that it was a voluntary choice that he made. He decided that he wanted a job that involved pulling people over for victimless "crimes" that the State creates - it is a hazardous occupation. Being a highwayman is always risky because what if your victims decide to resist.

There are plenty of other jobs that don't involve propagating the State's scheme of controlling people and extorting from them.

And those jobs tend to be much less risky.

Please don't impune the sadness for this fallen officer and his family.
He is a man, a husband, a father, and a sworn law officer, not a political figure with an agenda.
Would your feelings be different if you were the victim of road rage? Or the victim of a random act of violence? Or there was an emergency and you needed help?
Enough time spent on your paranoia and judgemental ramblings.
My prayers to his wife, his four children, and his brothers in blue. And for him, the man with no hidden agenda willing to sacrifice his life to protect and serve.

Do you just follow me around with your bullshit? Or are you this ridiculous on all the forums?

This poor man did not deserve to be killed, yes he knew he risks, that doesn't make it ok.

So if you decide you're going to make your living confiscating property from other people over arbitrary and useless regulations , you don't deserve to be killed?

You know what a highwayman is, right? That's what they did. They stopped travelers and robbed them.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. If you don't want people to be angry with you, maybe want to kill you, then you might want to stop waylaying them and demanding they turn over property to you, over some meaningless makework law that has nothing to do with public safety.

If I were a victim of road rage would my feelings be different? I don't see why. I'm not sure what your point is. Does it have something to do with the CHP and their relentless campaign of writing chicken-shit tickets to raise revenue so they can pay their exorbitant salaries and luxurious pensions?

I didn't claim their agenda is hidden. They're working for a paycheck like everyone else - their agenda is to get paid. Doesn't make the way they do it more valid.
