NJ law clerk resigns after saying trooper’s death was ‘not sad,’ mourning dead deer BY Melissa Chan NEW YORK DAILY NEWS New Jersey State Police New Jersey State Trooper Anthony Raspa, 24, was killed and another was injured when their cruiser struck a deer on an interstate highway, ran off the side of the road and hit a tree. The callous New Jersey law clerk who said last week's death of a state trooper was "not that sad" and instead mourned the deer he hit has resigned from her job. Leslie Anderson, who worked for the Middlesex County Superior Court, came under fire last week for posting multiple Facebook comments blaming New Jersey State trooper Anthony Raspa for his own demise. The 24-year-old trooper died on-duty last Saturday after his patrol car hit a deer and careened off Interstate 195, veering into trees. "Not that sad, and certainly not 'tragic.' Troopers were probably traveling at a dangerously high speed as per usual," Anderson wrote. "Totally preventable. At least they didn't take any of the citizens they are sworn to serve and protect out with them." Anderson resigned Wednesday after initially being suspended with pay for two weeks pending an internal probe, a New Jersey Judiciary spokeswoman said. She was hired in August 2014. Anderson had also engaged with social media users on News 12 New Jersey's Facebook page, sympathizing with the deer's family and saying Raspa's "recklessness" caused the crash. "Nonetheless, I agree that it is sad and heart wrenching for the family members left to suffer the consequences of the Trooper's recklessness — especially for the deer family who lost a mommy or daddy or baby deer,” she wrote. linkedin Law clerk Leslie Anderson is punished for comments she allegedly made about Raspa's death online. Anderson continued her tirade, adding that the law enforcement officer was no hero "running into a burning building" or in a rush at the time of the accident, according to the Press of Atlantic City. "The outcry and 'thank yous' are absurd, nonsensical and completely unwarranted," she said. "Only in America is this considered a tragedy." Anderson, whose Facebook page has since been deleted, did not return a call for comment. A woman who identified herself as Anderson's mother said her daughter was "not interested in talking" when reached by phone. The resignation came on the same day Raspa was remembered at a wake and one day before his funeral and burial. Raspa graduated from the police academy in October 2013. The Highland Park man was "passionate" about law enforcement and "took great pride" in being a New Jersey State trooper, his family said in a statement.
