My heart goes out to the family of the slain Trooper. I hope they will change their protocol to ensure that this never happens again.

Ken, unless you've ever been a cop or related to one...you should keep your uneducated mouth shut!
opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one, but you should keep yours to yourself!
Really, How can you be "saddened" and yet ignorant all in one paragraph? Is that your special talent?
The nieghbor herd the shooter tell the cop, Get back in your car & get out of here. The cop didnt take his advise.It's a shame he was killed, Left a wife & two children behind.But some times being a hero is not the right thing to do.He should have left the scene & called for backup.I would'nt wish this onto anyone.But hey the cops are'nt always using thier heads.God bless the troopers soul, Let him rest in peace.

Should the tax payers make laws againt the use of thier police cars & monies used in a police officers funerals.I ve seen a few police mens funerals & with the men & patrolcars not to mention fuel & miles put on the cars, The funerals are at least a million $$ or more. i think they over do policeman & fireman funerals,A couple weeks ago over twenty thousand patrol cars at the funeral in washinton state for the four cops gunned down while taking a coffee break.Thats a little much these people don't even know each other.Yet most of them would'nt even go to thier own cousins funeral.

No! you are a waste of space. Man has a point, with fuel prices upwards toward $3.00 a gallon, all the moneies invested in the computers and technology in these cars , they should be reserved for patrol work and not private funerals.

In case you can't figure this out these are people who serve the public, the PUBLIC. I already know you can't think for yourself so your comment is pretty much a joke to me.

This officer deserves an honorable burial. Are you going to say the same thing about military service personnel who have quite the same funerals? We pay taxes for every aspect of their job.

People like you seem to think the dead police officer should just be throw into a hole and forgot about. He served the people and lost his life, he deserves an honorable burial.

Are you serious?? Gimme an Effin break buddy. You have no idea what kind of brotherhood police officers belong to. You could only be so lucky to be a part of something as honorable as that. I can only hope you need the cops one day and they are out of gas from attening a funeral. idiot.

There a double standard in this country today....I don't disagree that the slain trooper deserves a honorable funeral, but in todays economy it should not be on the publics dime but by private donations and funds.

The public sends money to the state and locals to pay for the police, fire and anything else it pays for. You should concern yourself with the corrupt lawmakers that frivolously spend OUR money on themselves.

I sure as hell would rather see my money go towards a police officer getting an honorable burial than some fat cat's brand new Mercedes.

I agree with Carbide, the slain trooper deserves a honorable funeral... If so worried about the cost, what about all the wasted money this government spends in foreign aid... illegals healthcare, "the corrupt lawmakers that frivolously spend OUR money on themselves".

"I sure as hell would rather see my money go towards a police officer getting an honorable burial than some fat cat's brand new Mercedes". Me too!!!!

Off duty officers should not get paid to attend a funeral nor should an entire fleet of vehicles. Just my op as a taxpayer...

I'm not quite sure but I think OFF DUTY means you aren't getting paid.

I think if you were an officer you would have different views. Put your life on the line to protect people you don't know, then tell me you don't deserve some respect if you lose your life doing that job.

It's more about the respect and a final thank you from the people who they protect. I'm sorry you feel the way you do, but I think you are worried more about money than the respect to the people who protect you every day.

Respect is a mutual thing, not a finiancial thing. When two NYC police officers were killed in thie line of duty in 06, do you know how many PA officers used police vehicles to travel to NYC and were paid to attend a funeral to a officer they did'nt even know and was not from thier state. There's respect and then there is abuse.

You don't get, they all stick together. It's a way of life to be a police officer, at least for the honest ones.

I don't care if the entire Pennsylvania state police went to NYC to honor a fallen brother, the deceased deserve the honor. You are putting finances in front of honor and respect. It shows just how shallow you are.

I have a few friends who are police officers, god forbid if they ever are killed in the line of duty, I would be glad to see them get an honorable farewell. You are free to think about this anyway you want, but if you were an officer and not just an opinionated tax payer you would feel differently.

Sorry, not an officer. I am just the type of person who can appreciate how they are a team of people who protect my rights and, unfortunately, yours too.

They deserve any honorable farewell, just like military service men and women.

he certainly knew it was useless to try to talk to the trooper! i feel for the man coming to a point where he did not want to live and killed his own wife!

no doubt he was oppressed by the law and judicial system!

Best Chief I ever worked for was fond of saying "never get into a pissing contest with a skunk".

Carbide isn't worth it.
