My prayers go out to the family and brothers and sisters in blue In New Jersey. I was struck by a drunk and stoned driver but survived and retired.
Come on Governor, act like the President you wanted to be and show some support. We all are waiting and watching. Bring your friend Trump.

RIP Trooper. N.J. Troopers have always been my hero's and inspiration. I just retired 7 months ago after almost 40 years in law enforcement after moving out west from N.J.
