While home, I called the troopers and was treated very rudely by the man that answered the phone, all he kept saying was "we aren't responsible, the road is closed." I asked him to at least put a sign at the top of the street warning people and was told they were doing that. We went back to meet the tow truck and saw the sign at the beginning of the road at N.Tongass!!!! I couldn't believe that the trooper actually thought that was going to help the situation. I spent the next 2 hours taking over for the girls, warning people at the beginning of the road while the tow truck worked getting out the 3 cars.
My opinion of the troopers is not good right now, funny, I got a call asking to donate to their fundraiser yesterday, I said no and will continue to do so now. I taught my children to respect the police and troopers, but now I understand why people are losing that respect for them. I know those 3 girls will never forget what happened and how they were treated.
