    We all owe a lot to our public safety people. They risk their lives every day, and fortunately usually come home safe every night. But, too many do not, the victim of freak accidents like this, or drunk drivers, or violent criminals.

    UHP troopers in particular are underpaid for their dangerous work and dedication, but they are a special breed of individuals who really do understand and believe in "To protect and serve."

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Trooper Beesley's family and friends, and his fellow troopers as we join in mourning his tragic loss.
