This is hurts my heart so much. i didn’t know the trooper, but for a piece of shit to commit that act of violence should’ve been sent to meet his maker in that field. Reading the story made me shed several tears, for the trooper and his family, and for knowing the motherfucker is in custody to get justice for DPS Trooper Allen. #sheepdog#thinblueline#trooperallen#texashighwaypatrol#stmichaelprotectus
