    Memo calls for Connecticut state troopers to 'outperform' colleagues by writing...

    An internal state police memo obtained by a Connecticut news station reportedly challenges troopers to "outperform" their colleagues by issuing hundreds of tickets to drivers on Friday.

    The memo, obtained by WTNH-TV, calls for state troopers in one barracks to "issue at least 60 infractions / Misdemeanors each shift for a total of 180 infractions in order to outperform both Troop F and Troop G.

    "One day Troop F issued 301 tickets. Troop G responded by issuing 345 in one day. We can do better," Lt. Anthony Schirillo wrote in the memo, according to the station.

    "I am asking that everyone, myself included, contribute to this effort," Schirillo said. "NOTE if we happen to issue 350 tickets in one day that would be stellar."

    A second memo obtained by the station reportedly says that "The master sergeant and I will buy pizza for the shift with the highest total."

    That is spectacular. Is this what we need? I would say no.

    I would say hell no and if I were in that town I'd be demanding Lt. Anthony Schirillo be fired.

    Sad thing is it is the state police. How about this, I buy them pizza and they all just do their effing jobs.

    Imagine you were about to get a warnig for something stupid like a tail light. Ooops...we have to win a effing pizza party. Here's your ticket sir. CT...doing bad things well.

    This is one reason Connecticut sucks. Although, they do make up for it with 25 cent beer, 15 cent wings on Thursday nights outside on UConn.
