    Dear Govern, There are a lot of police in our state, They work hard doing a job at catching Thief’s, Murderers, criminals, WHY ARE CRIMINALS, Ect…. REWARDED WITH “RIGHTS” when convicted with crimes, to incarcerated them in Jail with Food, Water, clean clothing, linen, Room and Board, Room temperature heat, Health Coverage, There are people living in card boxes without insurance, sometimes without food, water, ect…. Tax Payers need to start sending letters to their congressmen, why, because your tax dollars are wasted with criminal “Rights”

    Sure, and when you need help, who you gonna call? They’ll risk their life to try and save yours. How about some respect for a thankless job.

      Thank you for your comment and the appreciation you convey for a difficult job. Clearly others who have posted comments don’t get it.

      Your comment shows a complete lack of respect for the men and women of the Gibson barracks, who do a great job in a very rural area. I hope you never need their help, but if you do, the troopers will risk their lives to save yours.
