Trooper Matthew Spina of the Connecticut State Police is in hot water after a rage filled stop in New Haven took a turn for the hardo. According to the guy who filmed it the trooper was driving erratically on the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge on I-95, the driver flipped him off (not realizing it was a cop), this pissed off the trooper who used it as a reason to pull him over, and things got roid-ragey.
This is what happens when two assholes looking for a fight interact. If a cop is speeding it’s probably for a reason. If you flip them off then you’re a dick. But if the cop uses that as a reason to pull you over then he’s a dick too.
If you start asking the cop questions about why he was driving erratically after he pulls you over then you’re a dick. If the cop loses his cotton picking mind and demands that you hand over your legally purchased weed then he’s also a dick.
Look, we’ve all had a bad day before, but if you carry a gun and a badge you’re not allowed to just pull over and fuck with anyone you don’t like. He went through all his shit, tossed his weed, and smashed his ash tray for absolutely no reason other than pride.
“Is it in the original dispensary container? No? Then you’re fucked!! How’s that sound? Mind your own business next time. It’s called shut the fuck up!!”
“I know I’m right God damnet!!!!”
“It just never ends at this job. I got 14 months left, I can’t fucking wait to be done!!”
Oh, and at the 4:30 mark if you listen closely you can hear the trooper tell him that if he fucks with him again he’s gonna toss him over the bridge. If you say something like that then you can’t be a cop. I get that the driver was hardly innocent in all this, but when you’re a cop you signed up to deal with assholes like this. And if you can’t resist the urge to smash someone’s personal property and threaten to throw them off a bridge because the middle finger hurt your feelings, then you probably shouldn’t be a trooper. We’re also in the middle of a pandemic and Connecticut has an “order” requiring everyone to wear masks in public. If they don’t then they can be fined or arrested, yet the trooper didn’t have a mask on.
The driver’s name is Kevin Jette, and like I said, I’m not a fan based on what I saw. But ultimatley the trooper is held to a higher standard, and if the cops are gonna make us criminals for not wearing masks, then they can’t be doing what Trooper Spina did. Even if they’re 14 months from retirement. He’s apparently been put on desk duty, where he should probably stay until he retires because he clearly hates his job and isn’t in the right state of mind to do it without ending up on Turtleboy.
