Troopers, park rangers seem overly aggressive

Posted: Wednesday, July 07, 2010

I wonder if anyone else on the lower Kenai Peninsula has notice the over aggressive presence of the state troopers and park rangers. They are seen daily having someone pulled over with their lights on, but there are very few citations written on the trooper dispatch.

I have talked with some of the people stopped, and most of it is just a minor violation that only gives them reason to stop someone. Like a small crack in a windshield, a license frame that they say is covering the plate too much, and not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign.

I don't understand what is happening this year, but I do know it's hurting our local business and tourism. It seems to me like, we are living in a police state.

I think many others that live in Ninilchik and Anchor Point would have liked to have written the same thoughts, but are cautious of being singled out. If I am wrong I aplogize, but this just doesn't seem right. Isn't this still the land of the free?
