Ohio State Patrol Officer clocked on his personal motorcycle at 147 mph.

Ohio State Patrol Officer, Jason Highsmith and Gahanna Police Officer, Christopher Thomas clocked at 147 mph and 149 mph on Interstate 70 while racing their motorcycles. So far, it looks like they’ll get off with a hand slap. The charge has already been reduced to just speed and reckless operation for Highsmith.

According to sources that know Highsmith, this office is stereotypical Ohio State Highway Patrol. Arrogant, rude, and feels that his revenue cop status puts him above the law and everyone around him. He must be one dislikable son-of-gun for his own agency to site him, but the antics he was performing on Interstate 70 just east of Columbus, Ohio warranted action from his own.

Do a search on Google and you’re going to find enough different variations of the story to figure out what happened, at least enough to get the idea. 2 fast motorcycles were together clocked at 147 and 149. I would call that racing. The officer sighted them for the speed he clocked them at and that was all. He was letting them off the hook to some degree. Then, the judge added on the wreckless operation charge for Highsmith.

To top Highsmith’s stupidity, arrogance, and his feeling of superiority above the law, he’s pleaded not guilty. Not guilty! The very equipment that he uses to right tickets faulty or what? His own peers just out to get him? How could he possibly be not guilty?

Normally, I would say it’s wrong to want to see someone lose, but the Ohio State Highway Patrol sure has slapped a grin on me when they wrote tickets and watched me lose. No kidding, I got one for 56 in a 55 zone. The Ohio State Highway Patrolwoman was smiling the entire time, especially when she said, “We do take Visa and Mastercard!” Of course I don’t mind seeing them getting one of their own.

When I think of how many truck drivers this guy has most likely written tickets to just for revenue, I want to see him lose his job and get a taste of what that is like. I want him off the job for the safety of all of us too. Clearly, he does not have good judgement.

If a truck driver had performed these same antics, the job would be gone and he could not find another. Will Highsmith be considered more important than a truck driver?
