    Last week a West Virginia woman who stood between her dog and a state trooper intent on killing him was acquitted of obstructing an officer by a jury in Wood County. It took jurors just half an hour to acquit 23-year-old Tiffanie Hupp after they watched the video of the incident that Hupp's husband, Ryan, shot with his cellphone. Trooper Seth Cook came to the Hupps' house on May 9, 2015, in response to a dispute between a neighbor and Ryan's stepfather. There Cook encountered Buddy, a Labrador-husky mix who was chained outside the house. The dog, whom Hupp describes...

    What would you do in this situation? Imagine you buy a car, not thinking about where it's been before, and then the police show up telling you they need to take your car because it may be evidence in an out-of-town murder. One man contacted News10NBC for help saying this actually happened to him. We're told the crime happened in Albany. So how did the car end up on a used car lot in Rochester? The connection to the murder case isn't completely clear, but it appears it went from an auction to the dealership and then to Josh Goetz...
  • Starship Troopers: One of the Most Misunderstood Movies Ever

    When Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers hit theaters 16 years ago today, most American critics slammed it. In the New York Times, Janet Maslin panned the “crazed, lurid spectacle,” as featuring “raunchiness tailor-made for teen-age boys.” Jeff Vice, in the Deseret News, called it “a nonstop splatterfest so devoid of taste and logic that it makes even the most brainless summer blockbuster look intelligent.” Roger Ebert, who had praised the “pointed social satire” of Verhoeven’s Robocop, found the film “one-dimensional,” a trivial nothing “pitched at 11-year-old science-fiction fans.” But those critics had missed the point. Starship Troopers is satire, a ruthlessly...

    Two state troopers fell from a tree stand Wednesday night during the search for Eric Frein and were injured, according to a state police official. The troopers entered a wooden tree stand to clear the structure and ensure it was not occupied around 7 p.m. The tree stand was a man-made hunting blind elevated roughly 20 feet off the ground and attached to a tree. While inside the stand, the floor collapsed and both men fell to the ground. They were treated by tactical medics at the scene. At the advice of the medics, both troopers were air-lifted to Lehigh...

    Specifically, I admire men who are controlled, confident and who fulfill their biological destiny as protectors and providers. Men are essential for training boys to tame the testosterone and channel their natural strengths and aggressiveness in appropriate ways. Trained men are, in the words of columnist Dennis Prager, the glory of civilization. (It goes without saying that untrained men are its scourge, but that’s another column.

    I dare you to watch this without crying. They do so much and heaven has plenty of them already. I just pray that the continuing war with the badly deceived is won much quicker than it has been going so far. Ultimately, real Christianity will need to replace the false religion of Islam for this war on terror to finally cease. Jesus will probably have to finish the job himself.
  • Judge rules (CT) trooper layoffs unconstitutional

    01/16/2012 3:52:13 PM PST · by matt04 · 13 replies · 1+ views
    A Superior Court judge has ruled that state trooper layoffs ordered by Gov. Dannel Malloy last year are unconstitutional. Last year, 56 state police troopers were laid off during the summer after they rejected part of a concessions agreement put out by Malloy's administration to deal with the state budget deficit. All of the state police troopers got their jobs back, collected six weeks of unemployment, which was less than their pay. But they say that's not the point. They sued because they say Malloy didn't have the authority to lay them off. It is unclear whether the state will...

    Ten best quotes from South Carolina state Troopers- as gathered by police band radio monitors 1.  "If you run... you'll only go to jail tired, son."  2. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."  3. "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."  4. "Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket." 5 "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you."  6 "Just how...

    Wisconsin GOP sends state troopers after DemocratAssociated Press Updated: 02/18/2011 10:33:09 AM CST Republicans in the Wisconsin state Senate have asked the governor to send state troopers after Democratic leader Mark Miller. Senate Democrats are boycotting a Senate vote on a bill that would strip public sector workers of their collective bargaining rights. They have been missing from the Capitol for a day and a half. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says he has asked Gov. Scott Walker to send two state troopers to Miller's home in Monona. He says he believes the troopers are en route.

    Ask most people about Starship Troopers, and, if they recognize the name at all, they’ll link it to the over-hyped 1997 film directed by Paul Verhoeven. This is unfortunate, as the film did no justice to the Heinlein text. My first acquaintance with the book came in 2003 when I found a 1959 copy in a flea market in Indian Springs, GA for the tidy sum of $5. I’d never read the book before buying that copy, but I consumed it in a day. The writing was aimed at a young adult audience, but its themes resonate today, regardless of...

The economy is bad and the holiday season is here and the extra money or time off that some troopers counted on has yet to be approved. There seem to be a lot of factors of work in the hold up, including an extraordinary event, troopers were used from around the state, and asking federal government to...
  • Ceremony will kick off historical cemetery project

    SIERRA VISTA — A ceremony to prepare a portion of the state-operated veterans cemetery to receive the remains of soldiers who died in the then Territory of Arizona in the late 1800s will be held Wednesday afternoon. Nearly 70 sets of remains, many of them incomplete, will be reburied at the Southern Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery next May, after being exhumed at a long-abandoned burial ground in Tucson, said cemetery administrator Joe Larson. Initially, the remains of 10 individuals were expected when the project was started, before Larson became the administrator. “Then the number grew to 30, and now it...

    Gov. Sarah Palin is taking the wrong approach to Troopergate. She should be practicing the open and transparent, ethical and accountable government she promised when running for governor and boasts about now that she's on the national stage. Instead, Gov. Palin has begun stonewalling the Legislature's attempt to get the bottom of allegations that she, her family or staff violated ethical or state personnel rules. As a result, the Troopergate allegations hang over Palin's future and cloud her candidacy for vice president....

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The village of Aniak says living with Alaska State Troopers in its community is like living with Big Brother. Earlier this month, the Aniak Traditional Council sent a letter to Alaska State Troopers asking that troopers be permanently removed from the Aniak post. The council cites unfair treatment and disregard of tribe members' civil rights as reasons and says it feels the scrutiny is racially motivated. The council complains troopers cite and fine young children for hunting or trapping ptarmigan and rabbits without a license. The say law enforcement officials also place roadblocks and conduct car searches...

  • UHP crosses could be coming down

    SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 NEWS) - The fate of more than a dozen crosses honoring fallen UHP troopers was left in the hands of a federal court judge on Tuesday. The issue was taken to court after a group of atheists sued the state claiming the crosses violate the constitutional separation of church and state. The group is now asking the Utah Highway Patrol Association to remove the 12 foot-crosses because they denote the death of Jesus Christ. However, the state and UHP troopers say they are memorials to brave public servants and not religious in nature. The majority...
