No, I do not "badge" officers- that would be a really tacky thing to do.

The last thing I want to do is exhibit any attitude of entitlement for special treatment.

The last time, 15-years ago, while still employed, I got pulled over for speeding, 62 in 55. As the patrolman was approaching my window, I stuck me hands out the window and said, "I want let you know, I have my off duty weapon next to me." He asked what agency and if I knew why he pulled me over. I immediately fessed up to my sin. After running my numbers, give my stuff back and said, "I am going to let you off with a warning but, I can give you a ticket if you want", and started chuckling. "Naw, that's okay, thank you", I replied.

Massachusetts has now suspended 1,600 CDL’s. Too late for those poor veterans.

Looks like the killer flipped an 18-wheeler he was driving, just a few weeks before this tragedy:

What a shame. As more facts are revealed I'm sure the history will get worse before it gets better. If only they would have enforced the laws we have and kept that jackass off the road.
