Should a state trooper who drinks on the job and tasers his newphew be fired?
Rather than protect the job of someone who drinks on the job, and tasers his nephew, wouldn't you expect a responsible government elected official to try to have that state trooper removed from the government payroll?

Most definitely! He doesn't seem to be the type of a person who should represent our law enforcement officers.

Have you ever done something at your job which, if someone had been watching, might have caused outrage and gotten you fired? Anything?

Maybe. I don't know what the state's rules are.... apparently the guy was subject to discipline by his superiors. Palin wanted his blood - that's pretty clear. When she didn't get it...she fired a DIFFERENT PERSON. Wooten is still on the force!

Are you sure you have both sides of the story? If all that's been alleged against the trooper is true, he should have lost his job. But are you sure the complaints are true?

Firing him would be a good start.

The guy deserves to lose his job. If someone threatened to kill my father and tased my nephew I can gurantee I would do more than make sure they lost their job. The Dems can keep pushing this because 99% of Americans can sympathize with someone who acted against a bad person like this. Also, reguardless of whether... More

Every American should demand that he be fired for that Taser assault on a child. Mr. Palin did complain and demand that the brute be fired. Democrats think that is a bad thing, after all the kid did not die. Good for Palin... More

Liberal thinking would tell you that the trooper was the victim. I loath liberalism.

Isn't someone innocent until proven guilty? Where is the proof that Wooten did any of this? Right now it is just he said she said, and that after a nasty divorce. Do you know anything about the american justice system? Evidently not! If there was any evidence that he did what you said then I believe that he would have... More

No, it should be done by following the chain of command. His supervisor would know best, how to handle the situation.

error error error. the trooper wasn't fired. A higher up was fired.

Yes, he should be. Is this the part of the story the liberals have been neglecting to mention? I knew there was more to it than their mindless witchhunt.
Answered By: Thomas SR - 9/16/2008
you are taking parts of the story out of context. you are obviously very narrow minded. he tasered his step son. and it was in play. and his step son wanted him to do it. he made mistakes and acknowledges that. you are trying to make more out of it and spread rumors, idiot.
Answered By: Loran - 9/16/2008
Well drinking on the job alone is reason enough for dismissal and ta sering someone without legal means is assault and breaking the law. Not only should he be fired, but he should also be jailed.

I'm a registered independent. I'm Suprised that the Democrats and Barack Obama want anything to do with defending a state trooper who tasers a 10 year old nephew.
Answered By: Pastor In Kentucky - 9/16/2008
Sure...but I also trust the process to work. An investigation is NOT an indictment. The investigation should continue and, if as you claim, the facts show that he deserved to be fired, then that's that. Remember, this was a bi-partisan group that commenced and is running the investigation. Do you not trust the... More
