New York State Police are trying to find the woman who handed an on-duty trooper a Christmas card with $1,000 cash inside.

SNIP

Police say the woman told Maniscalco she had seen him doing a good job and wanted to say Merry Christmas and thank you. Officials say it wasn't until after his shift ended that the trooper opened the card and saw the money.

Riiiiight.

A stack of twenty $50 bills inside the card didn't feel odd to him at all.

This should be a no brainer. It’s New York, so locate the one woman in the precinct that is a registered Republican.

My hats off for that trooper.

People find it strange that a Trooper (of any state) might just be an honest person. I pride myself in knowing that MY SON is one of those troopers. He will not take so much as a free cup of coffee from anyone, not even ME. His son has now put on the same uniform and I know, will do like wise. There are thousands of good, honest law enforcement people out there. The bad one’s give them all a black eye.

“Living on the Arm.” Common practice in some locales. We were having lunch at a New Jersey diner when four local “suits” came in. They placed their badges on the table before them as the waitress took their orders. When their lunch concluded, they simply stood up and walked out. Nice work if you can get it, but it can cut both ways. Free lunch becomes cases of free booze, becomes tickets to the Yankees game, girls, dope, gambling... Then, one day, someone tells you to "look the other way," and you have to because you're completely compromised.
