Question State Troopers

What's the deal? I drove to San Antonio today and on the way here, I saw over 15 state troopers easily. Easily one every 20 mins it seemed. Sneaky little buggers were hiding all over the place. It's not end of the month, so can't try throwing that out there.... a weekend, but nothing major for that type of man power...

Why??? Are they planning early for a nationwide riot with the presidential inaugarition of President Elect DahBombah?

I just walked in the door, also from San Antonio and noticed the same. I passed one up entering the freeway and followed another for awhile as he was waiting for someone to come flying by. Tired as , so going to bed. Later.

The economy is down so they need money so they are writing as many tickets for the dumbest stuff so they can afford to pay everybody.

I don't know, I was on my way to work this morning, following a trooper. Was doing 65 in a 60, the trooper was going about 70. This dodge durango passed me and rode the troopers all for about 16 miles and the trooper never turned his lights on. If it were me doing that I would have been pulled over in a second. I don't understand it myself.

We could easily do without the ones I saw today. More like banditos than protect and serve.

I suggest that you read the mission statement for DPS Highway Patrol Division. Here it is for you lazy folks.

The Texas Highway Patrol Division is responsible for general police traffic supervision, traffic, and criminal law enforcement on the rural highways of Texas.
you
and
them

State troopers are the absolute worst...... I should know, I used to date/live with one.....Even she was amazed at the she saw other troopers do..... She quit after a year due to the Supervision's requests.....


And yes, they are instructed to nail sport bikes.
