Police Impersonator Used Cruiser, Robbed Hispanics
January 08, 2011
A Prince George's County (Md.) Police officer willingly lent his cruiser to a man who used it to impersonate an officer and take money from Hispanics during patdowns, reports the Washington Post.
The officer, Dato Dacilien, is a five-year veteran who likely didn't know about the robberies and may have been manipulated by Larry Hawkins, 27. Hawkins is the brother of Prince George's Police Officer Brandon Hawkins and may have used his uniform during one of the robberies.

Oh sure, wanna borrow my dept issued squad? Need anything else? No, you already got a uniform? Gee, I'm not too stupid am I. The "cruiser" wasen't his to lend to start with. What are the requirments for that department? Makes you wonder about their leadership.(?)
