Alaska State Trooper Bashing
By Scott Willis


January 04, 2011

How is it the fault of the Alaska State Troopers for a 16 year old delinquent girl that has no self discipline or personal morals and requires RYC custody for behavior training?

The Alaska State Troopers did not raise her. Her problem is not a law enforcement issue. Plain and simple, if you cannot raise your kid to be a respectable citizen, who is at fault? It's not the State Troopers. Keep your private business private and don't bash Alaska's Troopers because your 16 year old is a delinquent.

As for the lady in the Ditch at Ward Cove: Call a tow Truck next time. The Troopers are not responsible for your failure to maintain control of your vehicle. There were no injuries. The Troopers are not tasked with dropping everything and driving out to hold your hand while you are in the Ditch. If you were injured, you could have called 911 and you would have had all the attention you needed.

Alaska State Troopers are a highly respectable Law Enforcement agency. Don't Bash the Alaska State Troopers over your own personal problems!
