Former State Trooper Indicted For Allegedly Beating, Biting Soldier

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An eastern Kentucky grand jury has indicted a former Kentucky State Police trooper accused of beating and biting a West Virginia National Guardsman.

Just proves that police are allowed to be facists and the politicians support their behaviour. The cop needs 20years in gen pop in a max security prison gettin raped by Bubba the pot dealer (who was harmless till he went in). Maybe then his coworkers would think twice before blurring the lines between law and facism.

    This is yet another example of how the KSP has gone wild! You can do a simple news search for state trooper and see all kinds of malfeasance from wife beatings to sexual misconduct. It is high time that the USDOJ takes a close look at the KSP!
