Fort Worth Police Arrest Teens Pretending to Be Cops
January 03, 2008
Fort Worth police took two teens into custody Thursday after they witnessed the two pull over a motorist using red and blue lights in their car.
Police say they do not know what the two teens intended to do with the driver once they pulled the car over.
A search of the teens' car reportedly yielded a fake sheriff's badge. Officers say the teens were also dressed in police-style clothing and carrying pellet pistols that looked like real duty weapons.
At presstime, charges had not been filed.

Not for nothing but if they are gonna send a message that it's not ok to impersonate LEO's then they need to file charges on everyone caught. Our nation needs a sturdy and credible LEO force and in order to maintain we need to take a hard line action against those who would try to break down and destroy what little respect we have left in this nation as LEO's.

This is a problem that needs to be addressed by all juristictions. I know that in we have also had some situations like the one mentioned above and have filed charges only to have the DA's and courts dismiss the charges. We need to charge and prosecute these individuals that think this is acceptable behavior and send a message to all the others that are thinking about doing the same thing. These are hard and serious times we now live in and this is by no way acceptable behavior and will not be tolorated, nuf said! To all the brothers and sisters out there in blue (brown, green, white, etc....) watch your backs and be safe, peace!

Another issue involved with this type of offense is that it places the offender in serious danger. Suppose they pull over the wrong person, armed and determined to do harm to Police Officers.
