That is just deserts with the string of rapes lately by pervs that buy some flashy lights from the JC Whitney catalog. I would never stop for an unmarked car with flashing lights, I would drive on calling 911 to verify an officer is attempting a valid traffic stop. Too many people have been robbed, killed, assaulted or raped by these criminals because they buy a hundred bucks worth of flashy lights.

He just needs to work on being more rude and more arrogant, then he can be hired as a real cop.

Too bad it wasn't Mittens.

I guess he's been busy trying to find Seamus and all.

He was probably a wannabe cop or sexually frustrated police reject. It's dangerous when these types start exercising authority that they don't have.

"released on personal recognizance."??????????

I would think this was a case for a stiff bail! This was no childish prank. Something stinks here.

I think all law enforcment vehicles should be marked in a way so that there is no doubt that it is in fact a police office. they shouldn't be able to use unmarked cars to pull you over. I feel that's what has caused these copy cats to try an get away with this kind of thing, and this has been going on for quite some time. Most people just assume it's the law when they see blue lights flashing but now a days you have to be more careful.

Unmarked cars and even SUV's and pick-up trucks are an important means of catching motorists who will flout the traffic laws when they don't see a police vehicle. They certainly should have, however. some sort of distinctive lighting that would be hard to duplicate by impersonators. I have seen unmarked patrol cars with the flashing lights built into the front grill of the patrol cat.

Impersonating a police officer should be punished by long jail. That alone sentences and not just token time or suspended sentences. Any additional crimes committed by an impersonator should have fines and prison sentences doubled in length. Hopefully, those ideas might lead one to think trice about impersonation of police officers if implemented.

Yeah, like Mittens.

Except Romney got away with his impersonation abuses.
