Just got pulled over for a brake light out, the officer looked like he was 12. I’m guessing 5’ 7”, 120 lbs.

Back when I was trying to get hired on with the MSP you had to be at least 6’ 0”.

These folks need prayers.

Did you get a ticket or a warning to get it fixed?

Can’t do that in these times. They have to consider everybody’s feelings.

At the academy during driving week we gathered at the driving track I looked around and thought the cadet’s got there before the real Troopers did, it looked more like a Star Wars convention.

I also though you had to be a bull to be a State Trooper but that has changed it seems.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Even at 120 lbs he is probably far more physically capable than most female cops. If your going to allow women the physical standards have to be fairly low.

yeah wait till you get that 12 year old doctor.

sworn LOE have to be 21 but man some of them sure look young , interviewing young workers is also an interesting experience.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Every LEO these days look like 12 years old. Maybe it’s because I am old, I don’t know…LOL


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

At 50 I was in better shape then 3/4 of my class the oldest guy there the video gamers struggled to tie their shoes the military guys fresh out were in way better shape then the gamers. After school some hit the gym the rest hit the TV games.

Back in the 1970s I checked about applying for the PA State Police Academy. At the time they had a height requirement of 5’9”. I was 5’8”. They said they wanted a minimum height requirement since a taller trooper would get more respect from the public. However, they were starting to let women into the academy and they had to be 5’4”. I guess a 5’4” woman would get more respect than a 5’8” man. Go figure.

He probably identified as a 6’ tall man.

Ran into a Maryland NRP ( game warden) awhile back.
I knew him when he was 8 and in 4H with my kids.

Seems like it was yesterday.

One of my sisters was in SD this summer and ran into a guy I went to grade school with.
He was a MD state trooper for 25 years, retired then county for 10 more.
Then retired again.

Man, I'm getting old...
