Last week 21 troopers from the Massachusetts State Police were investigated for overtime fraud. Basically they’d been taking extra shifts to hand out tickets on the Mass Pike, but instead of showing up they’d write tickets the day before and date them for the days they were supposed to work overtime. Then they just wouldn’t show up that day. In other words, they were committing larceny and stealing from the taxpayers. Then this happened:

PatchNine of the 19 State Police members for which hearings were scheduled in connection with the agency’s internal probe chose to retire between last Tuesday and last Friday, the State Police announced at 7 p.m. on Friday. Nine more were suspended without pay.

“The next step here is the criminal investigation by the attorney general which should figure out whether or not in fact this is stealing,” Gov. Charlie Baker told reporters Monday from the South Bay shopping center in Dorchester.

Stop right there. Why are these criminals being allowed to retire and walk away from this? If a citizen steals something over $250 it’s a felony. It prevents them from gaining employment in the future. It follows them around the rest of their lives. If you steal enough money you can end up in jail.

Meanwhile these people were stealing tens of thousands of dollars a year from the taxpayers. What makes it worse is they were given the one thing money can’t buy – trust. We trusted them to enforce the law because we assume they abided by the law. But it turns out they were just dirty, greedy cops. Ratchets with badges. And now they’re being allowed to just walk away and collect pensions for the rest of their lives.

What a fucking joke.

To make matters worse, they were trying to cover it up too. Troop F gets paid by Massport, but……

The Massachusetts Port Authority, which pays Troop F, did not file payroll records with the state.

“Massport made a mistake,” Baker said.

Oops!! No big deal. They just forgot to file payroll records. It’s not like Massport has a duty to be transparent or anything like that. It’s not like their funding comes from the taxpayers via federal grants. Oh wait, yes it does:

As a self-sustaining entity, the Authority relies on revenue collected from airline fees, parking fees, terminal, ground and other rents, concessions, and other fees to fund operating expenses. Operating revenues along with federal grants, passenger facility charges (PFCs) and customer facility charges (CFCs) fund capital expenditures. 

And that’s the reason why it costs an arm and a leg to park your car at Logan. Because someone has to pay these hacks these salaries:

But God forbid one of those six figure buffoons actually do their job and record how much they’re paying state troopers.

Finally the numbers were released yesterday….

At least 79 percent of the 142 troopers assigned to the division in 2017 made more than Baker, who earned nearly $152,000 last year. And 14 Troop F members earned more money in overtime pay than their base salary. Trooper Thomas Coffey earned the most at $351,773 – more than $137,000 came from overtime and nearly $50,000 in “other pay.” Trooper Neil Calnan earned more than $157,000 in overtime for a total salary of more than $309,000.

“There’s a limit on how many hours they can work. They can’t work more than 85 hours per week, but as part of the Colonel’s review of all overtime, across State Police, that’s one of the issues she’s looking into,” said Baker. 

You can’t be serious. $350K!!!! To be a public servant. Look, I’m all for paying cops well, but that’s an insane amount of cash. More importantly, how many hours a week are you working to make that much money? A hundred hours? How is that not a safety issue? Pilots are required by law to get a certain amount of hours of sleep. Isn’t it in the best interest of the public to have state troopers who have done the same?

Look, we will always back the police at Turtleboy Sports. But there’s nothing worse than a bad cop. Not only do they make all state troopers look bad, they abuse the public trust. They’re also gonna hurt the 99% of troopers who aren’t up to no good, because this will almost definitely be brought to the bargaining table once their current contract expires. The 9 cops who gutlessly retired because they couldn’t face the music should be charged just like any civilian would for doing the same.

    Funny coming from a cop ball washer like yourself.
    Who wants more cops less than criminals? Other cops and there unions. Why? Well msp is high end, but if you make 100,000 dollars in o.t. why would you want to go back to 75k base salary.
    You would think these fucken pigs would be the happiest motherfuckers in the world. But its hard too when trying to pretend to work 20 hrs a day.
    I think its time for a severe reduction in pay for police and no more overtime. Maybe they could start hiring minorities so they can have one less thing to whine about.

    “If a citizen steals something over $250 it’s a felony.”

    Not anymore; the Mass State Legislature is ready to pass a new Criminal Justice reform bill that raises the monetary limit from $250.00 to $1200.00 for a felony.

    Those that retired or suspended obviously have a work ethic that is shady. So just think of all the shady things they did while they were working. Do you think this was the only illegal item they did? I highly doubt it. I bet if they investigated all the complaints against them there would be numerous questions to answer.

    MSP Troop F, hiding the truth since at least 1987.

    Trooper William “Billy Jack” Johnson stopped Whitey leaving town with a ton of cash and was told to hand over his report to MASSPORT Commissioner Davis who was sent to retrieve the report by Billy Bulger. When he refused he was then demoted from the narcotics squad and sent to patrol parking garages. They ruined his career and besmirched his character. Charging him with insignificant MSP rules violations and forcing him to transfer from Troop F to Andover.

    The more things change the more they stay the same.

    In his suicide note Trooper Johnson was so bitter he stated he did not want a Mass State Trooper within a hundred miles of his funeral.

    William Johnson. Twenty two years on the MSP and a decorated US Army Green Beret.

      I knew Johnson for many years and he was a bullshit artist and nuts. When his German shepherd Scout died, he couldn’t part with him so he put the dead dog in his freezer for 2 years.. That’s normal ??

    What everyone here should know is that unlike the people on the pike, the people at troop f actually have to put their time in. I think that it should also be noted that I have read in other stories that Coffey is much higher rank than most of the other individuals so his overtime rate would be much higher. I agree that the SP Massport salaries are high, but in their defense they do put in the time.

    A ticket from a state trooper was dated wrong about a year ago to one of my employees. I had to fight it , first because the listed offense was ridiculous. He was eating peanuts. Trooper checked his phone , he was not using it. Still got a ticket. I paid it. But the date on it was different and didn’t match so they sent my
    Check back. If I didn’t save a copy of that ticket it
    Would have cost over 500.00 said and done. Instead of 100.00.

    The attitude in the MSP is unbelievable. They feel they are entitled to all of this. Free guns for me to sell? Great! Lying to generate overtime they never worked?? Another perk! After all, I’m a Mass State Trooper so I deserve this. Whattaya gonna do?? Arrest me?? Ha! I’m laughing all the way into my cushy retirement.
    No accountability in this organization whatsoever.

    GPS a cop like parolees. Make the info public. The public has a right to know where and when you work. Camera a cop. No video of a questionable action? Loose your job. Cop bitches about a electronic glitch, look at other videos of his. If no electronic glitches on normal things and just the questionable one(s) then (s)he is lying.

    Want to be treated like a responsible adult? Then YOU ALL act responsible. Not fair? Then maybe your co-workers, you know, the tools you didn’t report got you where you are today. The “good” ones looked the other way. Doesn’t make them much better than the “bad” ones.

    Every drive by a MSPs house? Always the best, manicured lawn, boat, RV…

    With the way things are going, it wouldn’t surprise me if the K9 dogs were getting paid and also putting in for OT.

    85 hours a week is the max? My husband drive semis, they can only work so many hours and have to take a mandatory 10 hour break, which only leaves for 70 driving hours a week, no more. How were they allowed to say they worked double shifts weeks straight at a time unchecked? These are public officials, they should’ve been put on some sort of electronic log system like a truck driver has to, it also monitors their gps location by a few feet, and you can see where the truck is at all times on the map. These corrupt fucks need babysit now since they can’t seem to do things the right way.

    After the Boston office of the FBI was found to be so corrupt, after we had 3 speakers of the house become convicted felons, the fourth an unindicted co-conspirator , after the Senate president had to step down , another Senator indicted in over 100 charges, ect . , why is anyone surprised by this ?

    What surprises me is the givernors milk toast bullshit response. If someone stole hundreds of thousands of his dollars, would he feel the same ?
