    They will get caught. The type of person that would come back to the scene and laugh at the trooper is the kind of person that loves to brag. They won't be able to keep their mouths shut over it and someone will rat them out.

    Well, his first mistake was trying to avoid the bikes that were trying to cut him off. I would have driven right through them, their own stupidity.

    I know troopers are trained to drive at high speeds. In the heat of the pursuit the other jerks were in the way. Instead of slamming on the breaks, I think I would have kept up the pursuit. Thump, Thump. Oops, well stuff happens. Can't cry over spilled bikers.

    Since he did instead crash, don't troopers have a shotgun handy anymore? I think he has the same rights to self defense as a private citizen. I would think he would have been justified to blast the moron biker in the face a couple of times.

    According to witness comments, the officer may have instigated the whole thing. I'm waiting for more facts.

    More facts would be good. I wonder how the trooper could have instigated the high speed pursuit of nine motorcycles who were operating recklessly to begin with. Perhaps he tried to enforce the traffic laws of the state. Please keep us posted.

    I had some moron the other day weaving in and out of cars, driving between them and in the break down lane. I first heard his exhaust and thought it was a car coming on my left. I look in the mirror see nothing and then as I look up he's off my right fender moving into my lane. I swear if I didn't let off the gas he would of eaten pavement. Then he continued weaving in and out of cars and driving in the breakdown lane. I thought for sure I was going to witness an accident.

    Washington State Patrol cannot afford dash cams

    According to this latest report on KOMO, Washington State Patrol cannot afford dash cams...

    Since I really do not wish to get banned from here, I shall reserve further comment on how I feel about that particular state of affairs.
