Chicago police arrested a 14-year-old boy for allegedly impersonating one of their own Saturday.
The boy, who has been charged as a juvenile for impersonating an officer, walked into the Grand Crossing District station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave., dressed in a Chicago police uniform, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The boy, who reported for duty about 1:30 p.m., partnered with another police officer for about five hours.
The boy identified himself as an officer from another district but was detailed for the day to Grand Crossing and also was savvy enough to sign out a police radio and a ticket book, according to a source. The source also said the boy went on traffic stops with the officer he went on the street with.
How on earth is anybody capable of mistaking a 14 year old for a grown man after a few hours of interaction?
What an awesome kid.
Hah, this reminds me of back-seat mods.
Wow he's good lol.
The people upholding law and order can't tell a real cop from a teenager? That somewhat shakes my faith in the order of things.
The competence is just astounding no?
For the Emperor! Knights of Caliban!
