    makes me wonder how many OSP troopers were on hand, way out in Cj? long ago greedy city fathers disbanded the police force so they could use the money elsewhere,there own pay raises’ so the county sheriff,s dept was contacted out to provide protection,9hows that working out for ya now Cj?) little or no county cops on patrol now, so its safe to assume that the OSP being short staffed for years now are also thin, not agood or safe thing for them, iam sure,people need to put there prioritys right and get there public safety back on track again, taxs hurt, however life and limb hurts worse’
