Your basic state trooper is very much like your basic cop, someone who had little to nothing going for them in life and at the risk of digging ditches or laying concrete the rest of their life they decided to become a cop. They are then given a few weeks of training after which they "graduate", being then given almost unlimited authority over common citizens and the power to carry a gun both on and off "duty" (duty = driving around issuing tickets and basically ruining anyone's day they choose). And yes I have had an actual real trooper/cop tell me how "cool" it is that he can carry a gun around. People like Louis H. are badly informed as to what cops are and do, and/or are cops themselves or directly related to a cop. People who become cops are people who are either amazingly egotistical or wish to get back at the world for whatever silly reason they perceive in their head, more often than not a combination of both.
To work a job where you go in every single day/night and ruin someone's day or life depending on what "citation" you give them or what you "arrest" them for all the while knowing that in your private life you "speed" while driving and occasionally drink with friends at a bar and then drive home is the epitomy of the basic definition of hypocrisy.
Never argue or fight against a trooper (or cop for that matter) but dont think for a second that these "people" are on your side or their to help you and protect as it explictly says in their oath "To Protect and Serve" The only thing they serve is their own power lust and ego and they will without a second thought ruin your life and more because they are "enforcing laws" they themselves dont pay attention to and dont adhere to in their private lives.
State Trooper 1: Man that was great arresting that guy for drinking and driving even though he was barely over the limit, he lost his job and everything.
State Trooper 2: Yeh we sure ruined his life, he will never cross us again.
Normal person in a bar (me): You guys are both drinking right now, and you drove here which means you are gonna drive home after drinking just like he was.
Troopers: Yeh but its different, were cops.
Me: Oh,...right,...that makes perfect sense.
Trooper: Man I got a great story about how I just busted all these kids I caught smoking weed. I think even a few got kicked out of college.
Me: Hmm, I remember in High School how you smoked out a few times.
Trooper: Yeh but thats different, Im a cop now.
Me: Oh right,...guess that means I shouldnt mention the hypocrisy of the whole situation.
Me: How did you get there so fast?
Trooper: I am a cop I just drove here at 110 mph the entire way. I even got pulled over but a little flash of the tin is all it took.
Me: Oh,...right...that makes sense to me.
