He would have drowned too; spades don't like water.

$9 million because a dumb ass trooper can't put on a life jacket. Bring back the MO Water Patrol!

Tax pop payers pay for every mistake a cop makes.

Cops should be in prison for this, seriously. No amount of money is worth dying for. This was negligence, borderline murder. They let this poor guy die and could have easily saved him.

Soon to be ex-governor Nixon combined the water folks with the highway patrol without proper training. Same negligence as Ferguson.
We will be hearing about Missouri problems caused by Nixon for years to come. You cannot fill senior admin posts with political hacks and expect professionalism. Same principle at work in KC and Jackson County.

The Highway Patrol has always been mostly a political organization whose main goal was to get ever higher salaries and retirement. They stonewalled and lied about this incident. There needs to be a substantial housecleaning.
