Well, he won't ever be a cop but at least he'll get to meet some.
It would be interesting to get in the minds of these people and try to figure out what the heck is going on up there. I am speaking of the people that are just goofy and try to impersonate police or military. I am not talking about the whackers with criminal intent as their end game is apparent.
Where the hell did he get an ATF badge?
I have seen him in action, he used to hang out at a bowling alley I work a security gig at on weekends.
He would always walk up and ask if we were hiring and I would ignore him .
The lights and badge are new additions I guess he wanted to go full on whacker.....
Second link when I google "atf badge for sale"
There are some foreign companies making replicas of USG tin. FBI, DEA, ATFE, FPS, Social Security OIG, VA Police, etc.
They are a Federal crime to possess here in the US.

It is also illegal for an unauthorized person to possess the real thing.

It's kind of funny. We used to have an inmate here, (back with our higher custody bunch), who go caught playing FBI agent.
I want a naught naught spy badge.with number 007 on it!
I'm gonna get a CCW badge and (citizens) arrest all y'all for impersonating open carriers.

Man that guy is whackalicious... two German Shepherds in the backseat? He must not have heard that most departments have gone to the Belgian Malinois these days...
That whacker has family in the county I work in. His Charger looked like a legit LE car on his set up.
Here is a photo:
GNG is mourning the loss of one of its own now.
as long as you're not actually impersonating an officer...
In the context and intent of this article and incident, it applies quite handily.
