Partner of Slain Trooper Sues Missouri for Survivor’s Benefit

December 7, 2010

Missouri

 As European nations move towards embracing LGBT citizens, yet another example from the Governor of Missouri that minority rights left to a single branch of government is discrimitory and politically correct hate speech..  “pray for the trooper’s family, including his parents, but not for Glossip or his son”….

Kelly Glossip sued Missouri on Thursday for the survivor’s benefit denied him because his relationship with his partner, Cpl. Dennis Engelhard, a state trooper killed in the line of duty, was not legally recognized by the state. Engelhard, a 49-year-old highway patrol member, was killed on Christmas Day when a vehicle struck him as he was investigating an accident…

“In calling for flags to be lowered to half-staff in Engelhard’s honor, Gov. Jay Nixon asked the state to pray for the trooper’s family, including his parents, but not for Glossip or his son.”
