(1) Pennsylvania State Trooper Samuel J. Nassan III (right) is one of the unluckiest persons in the world, involved in a string of remarkable coincidences trailing back to an elementary school playground and culminating with a series of dead or injured citizens who crossed his policing path.If unions representing local police officers, paramedics, firefighters and state troopers continue to defend with mindless uniformity the inexplicably violent, irresponsible and obnoxious conduct of their members, those unions seem destined to lose public support. Why those unions would follow such a risky course when government budgets and pension plans are stressed is difficult to understand. Most public employees serve the public well; why do their unions seem to perform so poorly?
(2) Pennsylvania State Troopers Association President Bruce A. Edwards is a two-bit whore, willing to say or write anything for a price.
