If the trooper was ejected, was he wearing a seat belt as required by law? Just wondering.

These cops think there avove the law. If he would have worn seatbelt, he wouldn't have been ejected. But i'll bet he woret seatbelt violation tickets.

emergency personel aren't required by law to wear seat belts.because as i was informed when i asked at one point
"we have to be able to get out in a hurry".

I am sad that the only thing most of you are worried about is if he had a seatbelt on or not... What does it matter... what matters is, is he going to be o.k... I wonder what the world has come to that it is putting out such heartless, uncaring people... I remember a time when someone would get hurt and everyone was there for you with encouraging words and would be so kind... everyone would pray for them to get better and really care for one another... I miss those days... I think we have lost sight of God and in turn we have lost sight of what we should be to one another and to our selfs... Just Sad...

It does matter...when someone is seriously injured or killed from being ejected, all you hear is how he/she should have worn their seat belt. I know these cops around here believe they are above the law. Most of the time, they do not even have the common courtesy to use their turn signals!

It's amazing what morals some people can demonstrate on a blog with an anonymous name. It's unfortunate when others manners can disgrace us all.

So, is he alright?

folks, it is not uncommon for police officers to remove their seatbelts as they bring their vehicles to a stop, in fact, its part of their training. police are at an immediate disadvantage during a traffic stop and employ a variety of tactics to attempt to negate their disadvantage. while i understand some of the voiced concerns, they smack of anti-police bias which erodes there credibility, in my opinion.

with the limited facts available, it would seem that that seat belt may have been removed prematurely since it is unlikely that it malfunctioned.

this is a prime example of the importance of proper seat belt usage. (barring the unique circumstances of this crash) proper seat belt usage saves lives, that's a fact. in this instance it could have also prevented serious injury. police know this and that's why seat belt laws are vigorously enforced.

hopefully the Trooper will make a full recovery and be able to join his family for the holidays.

oh, by the way, cops around "where" think think they are above the law? sweeping generalizations such as an ill thought out comment like that show a lack of maturity and/or intelligence. think before you post or at least have mom make you some kool-aid to wash down your meds before you try to engage in an intelligent dialogue.

"it is not uncommon for police officers to remove their seatbelts as they bring their vehicles to a stop, in fact, its part of their training." Sometimes training needs to be over ruled by common sense. Obviuosly the patrol car was still moving fast enough to crash and roll over. The roads this time of year are not nice. If he was just pulling over a speeder, I don't see the need to remove the seat belt prior to stopping......or..just maybe he wasn't wearing it at all. I sincerely hope that the officer recovers from his injuries.

Mr. Negative,

Get a college degree, graduated from the State Police Academy, put your life on the line daily, and make personal sacrifice's all for the sake of spending your career helping and saving others.....then have the audacity to suggest that Troopers use common sense!! OR shut up and appreciate what these men and women do, and use your own common sense to not speak about issues clearly are out of your league. I would have to take a guess and say that your preaching on here is really cause you couldn't actually do what they do. Hit the nail on the head????

I hope the trooper is ok.

Do the schools in this area have a seatbelt program put on by the police?

I have friends and their children who will not wear a seatbelt in the back seat because they, the kids and parents believe it does not matter.

Mr. Neg',

we don't have enough details to know if he was still going too fast at the time he removed his belt. my point is, he may have been going slow, but was close to the edge of the road and rolled over a bank causing the car to roll and flip. but i guess its still a fair question to ask.

also, i dont think the cops know they are only stopping a "speeder". locally, the NY trooper who stopped a "speeder" last year got shot in the stomach when the speeder was "bucky" phillips. nationally, if you're old enough to remember the bomb at the federal building in oaklahoma city, a OK patrolman caught one of the bombers, tim macvey, as he was speeding away from the city. the amazing thing was there was no connection to the bombing at the time, he was just a "speeder".
