Kane Trooper With Most DUI's Object Of $1 Million Federal Lawsuit

Bradford business woman files civil lawsuit in federal court against state police trooper

A Bradford business woman filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Erie against a Kane-based state trooper, alleging he targeted her family in violation of their constitutional rights.

Dianne Thompson filed suit against Trooper Matthew Petrof, saying that when he pulled her over for a traffic stop in October, it was in retaliation for her’s and her brothers’ public criticism of the state police in The Bradford Era and in public. She’s requesting a jury trial and a verdict of $1 million. More...

Glad to see someone doing something about these crooked cops.

Strangely this situation pales in comparison to what these wannabe Gods normally get away with.

That trooper should be charged with perjury and fired. Any citizen that made false statements such as those in court would be convicted as such.

You are not above the law, you are sworn to uphold it, not abuse it.

I understand that if he wants to stop some one he will follow way to close to the car in front of him. whcih blinds the driver them he stops them and gives a ticket. I feel this trooper should be taken off the road and either fired or put behind a desk where he has little contact with the public......

I agree, this trooper needs removed from the force before he partakes in on these events:

troopers aer above the law just keep up with current events and you will see the pattern. we have one in the coudersport barracks who cannot be touched, ask our last D.A. who had to throw out many of his cases because of his unlawful tactics.

There you go again...I cannot believe the cop bashers we have around here. You are the vocal minority, however. It's usually someone who violated the law and was held accountable that doesn't appreciate police officers. Also, last poster: keep in mind the cases thrown out by the former D.A. are part of the reason she is the former D.A. after one term.

It has nothing to do with cop bashing. This officer is using false cause to pull people over. I am fairly certain he was just named as having the top 50 most dui arrests in the state. He is using shotty tactics and lies to bully people and he is getting what he deserves. I by the way have not violated any laws since i was a kid. I just have a small problem with it comes to cutting corners in the leagal system.

Oh no don't go cop bashing now!

Leave the bashing up to the cops....like they did to this woman's face.

It's OK for an officer to pull you over, falsely arrest you, violate your Constitutional Rights and THEN DISPLAY it all in an arrest report in the newspapars for all to see, but heaven forbid we say something when a cop is corrupt.

You seem to have forgotten the police are here to serve and protect us, not to abuse the law and bend it to their wishes. When our law enforcement officials step out of line WE have a responsibility to stand up and say something about it. So redirect with your "cop bashing" remarks all you like, but the truth is the truth and reality is reality whether it fits into your nice little brainwashed concept of it or not...welcome to it.

Well, if you have been stopped & end of arrested for DUI so be it. There is a simple cure to not get caught DUI...DO NOT DRINK AND THEN DRIVE!! Its very simple.

and what is the cure to the police bending the law how they see fit? This woman wasn't drinking and driving. She was being harassed by a trooper that is using the ends to justify the means.
