  1. Congratulations Trooper Rafferty for making our streets just a little bit safer. Unfortunately, the courts as they are, will probably knock those class 6 felonies down to misdemeanors and this fellow will walk with a slap on the wrist. Plea bargaining and the denial of swift jury trials has ruined the criminal justice system. It jeopardizes the rights of the truly innocent and allows hardened criminals to walk the streets.
