Just shows gullibility of people. Like any other organization asking for money...don't do it. DPS does not solicit for money. And they say to stay away from any one that does.

The 'Troopers' rob us every day.

This is why if you want to donate money to a police organization, find your local police association and call them about how to donate.... or give to guns and hoses or an organization like that!

I guess they're theives. They ask people for money that's given freely, and then give $10k to every family of a trooper lost in duty.

If they dont support it, why is there a TSTA in Waco? DPS is organized crime.

But they gave me a cool little sticker that will keep me from getting a ticket if I get pulled over!

I wonder if people that actually believe that also believe they won't get cancer by donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

These fake trooper scams have been going on for decades.

I remember a Dallas-Fort Worth radio disk jockey saying he temporarily worked for one of these groups when he couldn't find work in radio.

Can you report United Way's numbers?

I hang up on all people requesting money by phone!

I don't give money to anyone or any "group" or any "cause" over the telephone. I can figure what I want to support on my own.

I know several Troopers who have told me outright that TSTA, though they say they're for the Troopers, are not worthy of my donations. If a Trooper tells me it's bogus I tend to believe them. And for the two of you who seem to be seriously anti-police, you're objections and choice of words speak a lot more of yourselves than those you want to belittle.

Don't ever give money to an organization without looking at their (audited) financial statements first.

Would we feel better if a couple hundred troopers were killed so the money was spent?

12:47, not me they don't. Pretty easy to avoid a ticket.

12:47 / 2:58 - Idiots.... plain and simple. That being said, if you do want to give it's worth taking a few minutes and finding out what local charities could use your donations. Think globally, act locally.

Check out the Russ Martin Fallen Heros Memorial Fund. You can view actual checks that have been given to families within hours of an tragedy. They honor law enforcement, fire & military.
Great cause.

Most Charities are scams anyway. I would never give to one nor would I give money to a church either.

But I'll bet you would rush to the church or charity if you had a little shortage.

LOL Nope, 10:24 I wouldn't. I'd get off my butt and get a job.

Saw a presentation of Wise Co United Way recently. Less than 10% admin fees and all money stays in Wise Co.

Might be a good place for your extra dollars.
