Last October a MA trooper was dispatched to an accident scene. The trooper smelled the odor of alcohol on the female driver who stumbled and slurred her words. A good indication that the driver is impaired.
After failing several sobriety tests she was placed under arrest. A search incident to arrest revealed a “heroin kit.” The kit consisted of several needles, a burnt spoon and a quantity of heroin. The female begged for leniency saying…”Do you know how many people I had to blow to get that?”
This statement reveals that she knew what she possessed and was included in the troopers report.
Two days later the trooper was ordered to change his report and delete the “Do you know how many people …” portion. He was advised that the statement had nothing to do with the incident and should have not been included. Beg to differ.
As the matter unfolds, the arrested female is the daughter of a judge and the order to change the report came from the highest reaches of the MA State Police.
When the incident was published in various newspapers and blog sites the Director of the MA State Police denied any influence or orders to change the report. He did, however, resign abruptly a few days later. Hummmm.
The trooper who was forced to change his report recently filed a suit in Federal court.
When will these goofs learn to leave the police work to the cops and not interfere with a legit and honest report. Enjoy you’re retirement COL McKeon…former Director of the MSP.
