To all my Mississippi Troopers brothers and sisters you need to take heed . There are several bills going through Jackson that could effect you. Both working and retired. Won't go into them here but look them up. Now the working troopers . You have a great president In Gail McMullin who works hard for you the men and women of the highway patrol. The word on the street and from a good source is the power to be is mad because she is working for you doing her job you elected her to do. Which has caused her to be not so liked by the 5th floor. Not sure of all that was said but she was advised to stay away from the capital , quit talking to elected officials And to keep her mouth closed or she would be doing radar details in tunica or Gulfport. It is a shame the voice of the troopers are a threat to the 5 floor. Make some calls see some people make your voice heard . To silence her is to silence you. Speak loud my Brothers and Sisters .
Mr. Reed is a past president of the MSTA. All presidents have been allowed to lobby at the capital. Needless to say, some higher-ups were not happy that MSTA was able to get troopers removed from the push to exempt state employees from civil service protections.
Ms. McMullin won a reverse discrimination case against DPS, oops, she settled a case against DPS after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals literally laughed DPS out of the courtroom and told the trial judge how he was going to rule. Read all about the case here. DPS paid her $118,906 and promoted her to Training Director.
She apparently filed a motion to enforce the settlement agreement. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves, who was embarrassed by the Fifth Circuit, sealed the motion although the submission of the motion is mentioned in the docket. A status conference was held between the parties yesterday.
