How sad for their family, friends, and the many others they have touched. As an addict of Alaska State Troopers I remember seeing them on the show. I hope the guilty person(s) pay for this. A life is worth more than a 150$ couch! NatGeo stated their episodes will no longer air.

That sucks that NatGeo is pulling their episodes. I would think they would do a tribute to them. Or at least ask the family what they wanted.

That's what I would have thought too.

My heart goes out to the friends and family of the troopers.

Troopers seem very well-trained and professional, but maybe village Eskimos should be policed solely by their own.

They are. Many villages are policed by Village Public Safety Officers and/or Village Police Officers. In this case the VPSO called and asked for the assistance of the Alaska State Troopers. A good portion of the VPSO's are Alaska native. The draw back for some is that they often end up arresting family members. It's a tough position to be in.

The Village is mostly Athabaskan, one of several Native populations in Alaska. And yes, the troopers chosen to assist the police officer (s) in the village are trained to respond to such. The public officer in the village usually is of Native descent.

He had also been threatened hence the call for backup.
