So Easy, Even a 14-year-old Can Do It

Posted In Humor

Officers in a Chicago police station are facing disciplinary action and, even worse, ridicule from their peers after falling for a 14-year-old's impersonation of a police officer. The teenager, who aspires to a career in law enforcement, came into the station through an unlocked back door, wearing a uniform and claimed to be a recent transfer. The real officers gave him a radio and sent him out. He drove a squad car, assisted in an arrest, and evaded discovery for six hours, when a supervisor noticed that his uniform was not complete and started asking questions.  

When they discovered the charade, the officers quite predictably arrested him for impersonating a police officer.
