Re: To Serve and Protect! (Hyperpasta)

I'm not sure what you're looking to accomplish by spreading this "across the web." From the link you posted as well as the main story on Newsday.com, it sounds like the trooper screwed up and is going to be punished for it. Not sure what spreading the word is going to do for it. There are always going to be "that 10 percent" in every facet of life who will screw it up for others. In this case, one cop makes other cops look bad. The article indicates he's being punished. The "Canyon Chasers" article omits the fact that the dispatchers were swamped with calls regarding another accident and that the dispatch center is understaffed and over-stressed. I'm not saying the trooper didn't screw up... his attitude was way out of line. He's lucky the response time was not affected by his inaction and poor judgement.

Again, I'm not condoning the behavior. I just don't see the point of spreading it. I mean, we don't see people coming on here with, "hey, an ex-gang banger ambushed and killed two cops in cold blood, spread the word" articles. Of course, I probably just mis-understood your post that really should have said, "call the governor and get this guy fired". I'm sure it's rare for people NOT serving the public to screw up.

Re: To Serve and Protect! (43Duc748)

I hear and read what you say 43Duc748 however this guy is a paid professional and is not paid to nail people in times of hardship or crisis but more for support and help when it is needed the most.

In an emergency most people can't think 100% straight and the officer is paid to be there to fill that void, blatantly and intentionally he did not and I personally take a very very dim view on that along with I suspect many many others.

The age old proof of pudding, if it happened to you and it was one of your buddies would you take it?, I would doubt it.

Re: To Serve and Protect! (Monstaman)

I am not defending the trooper. He screwed up. He is being punished and I'm sure that this infraction will probably result in further investigation as to his work habits. I will say that I don't think troopers / cops should be working dispatch. It's far better for a cop to arrive on a scene and THEN call bullshit instead of calling bullshit based on the phone call alone.

I agree, he's not paid to say what he said, but he obviously lost his cool and is going to be punished for it.

And, yes, I would be pissed if it was me, or my buddy who was in the accident. I would be more pissed (lawsuit pissed) if the dispatchers attitude was a contributing factor to my (or my friend's) death. In this case it wasn't. Punish the guy? Yes. Take away a cop from a 17 year career because of a lapse in judgemet? No.

He's probably the type who loves to lecture people about the dangers of speeding all the while knowing that he can badge his way out of a ticket.

Why not? Chances are he has shown this kind of behavior throughout his career, and he finally got caught.

People get canned from thier jobs all the time for a serious lapse in judgement.

Re: To Serve and Protect! (43Duc748)

The tape of this incident was played on Good Morning America this morning. After hearing the dispatcher, not just reading the transcripts, I feel this fella should be canned and his pension taken away. This was completely inexcusable behavior. The guy was totally callous, rude, and uncaring. He is obviously working in the wrong field and needs a career change now.

My job is pretty well union-protected, but if I screwed up as badly as he did I'd be shown the door in a New York second. He should not afforded a second chance.

Of course, Janklow has set a precedent already. Dead motorcyclists mean nothing to LEO's and government.

Same old Sh!t

The cop should not only loose his job, he should get his ass kicked by the courts. I guess if you go with the bad judgment call, the ambulance driver should be able to determine the level of care he/she will give based on how the person got hurt. “If the guy got hurt while riding a motorcycle that is just tough sh!t, maybe next time he will learn “
It is not like the cop had to risk his life in the line of duty (like many other officers have to do) all his lazy ass had to do was record the info and dispatch an ambulance. How would you like this guy to respond to a serious crime at your house? How anyone can try to play to the cops side is just sad. The cop is an asshole and should be dealt with accordingly. The county / state tax payers who pay his salary will now also have to pay the multi-million dollar civil judgment to the family. Wow 15 whole extra “vacation” days, (that I am sure he will somehow find overtime to make up the lost income) I wish my job was like that.

I second that thought!

Ever hear of Karma?

I wonder what the taxpayers in CT have to say about paying a trooper that much $$'s.

Pretty stupid statement considering there are plenty of cops on this board.

Yep the guy was an idiot. Should he lose his job? I'd have to see his whole file. Should he lose his pension? Good luck. That will never happen.

Which is probably why he doesn't care.

The list of assumptions is growing with this thread. Most of my riding / track buddies are cops - the only anti-motorcyclist statements I've heard them make are related to squids w/ 12 o'clock bars and fur-bikes, which, last time I checked, weren't thought to highly of here either. While the two jokers in question certainly made idiotic statements, to lump all cops in w/ them is just sad.

Re: To Serve and Protect! (43Duc748)

Cops and State Troopers are two totally different positions and have a totaly different attitudes!

Police officers


State Troopers

Re: To Serve and Protect! (Hyperpasta)

LEO's and Janklaw? What did the reporting officer do wrong there? I thought Janklaw was arrested...the system failed, not the LEO.
Maybe there is a reason why he is "pushing papers" as a dispatch and not out in the field working...

Well, that is pretty accurate... I'll refrain from the "Tiple A with a badge" comments.

</TD></TR></TABLE>I would love to hear the explanation of this. (totally different positions) Yeah, one is employed by the local government or County and the other is employed by the State. Each are employed to uphold the law and serve the community.
