Welcome to OCDO!
"Long says after his run-in with the troopers, one of them showed up at his house yesterday and apologized for his behavior."
The above was pulled from the aticle. How the hell did the trooper get his name and address. If he pulled for no other reason than to talk to him he crossed the line. I realize he was trying to mitigate a fubar, but he made another one with the unlawful use of data.
I wish I could ask Mr. Long if he gave the troopers his ID. If this had been my house I would get a RO for the troopers. This is equal to a thug/criminal coming to his victims house to apologize thinking it absolves them of the original crime.
I am surprised at these two troopers as I have rarely had contact with them other then CD inspections, and one stop where the trooper was later arrested.
