  • jane doe says:

    Why do the troopers need to respond to a random gunshot with no one being threatened with a armored vehicle. Welcome to a police state alaska

  • Mike says:

    No random gunshots, just a wildly incomplete news story here.

    Good Lord! I’m glad I don’t live out there anymore. I was shooting all the time! Hello!, it’s funny river!!!

    Practice your shooting skills and the Trooper “Bearcat” might finish you off!

    There were people in danger that are now out of danger thanks to AST.
    So please stop the I hate the cops, I hate the BearCat posts. God forbid you are ever in need of a rescue.

    Now as for the New Boy Toy BearCat. Think of how many addtitional Ak State Troopers could have been Hired for the Cost of Only One BearCat ! Yes this New Toy was purchased thru HomeLandSecurity $Grant Funding$ but in my book Funding a Hiring More State Troopers is much more important.

    Thur 10/24/13 Yes IF I were a SERT Team Member & someone was Shooting at Me with Small Arms YES I would want the BEARCAT fully armoured assault vehicle. But much more Important is the HIRING of more STATE TROOPERS. Those addtional Troopers would save many more Alaskans than a BearCat. SPW
