Some officials are tools, but most are not. What have I seen State rangers do where I ride? Stablilize, sometimes treat, and off-load the injured to a hospital asap sometimes by chopper, sometimes by ambulance. A few years back, a guy I was just riding with clipped a signpost and went down hard on a main road. It was late and hardly anyone there at the time. The first person to find him was a ranger - trying to keep him alive -no use though - didn't have his helmet on (short test ride). I hope if I'm down hard somewhere, a ranger is around to help me instead of some of the hang loose people we're talking about. Just my thoughts on the people, not the freedom issue.
