Impersonating a police officer, unlawful use of emergency lights, illegal installation of emergency lights, illegal use of an emergency vehicle siren, and enough traffic violations to fill a book all add up to a very nice arrest record if you're being serious. I wish I was that cop - those points would add up like a pinball machine.
For the record, undercover cops don't pull over vehicles for traffic violations anymore for this exact reason - people kept calling 911 thinking the cops weren't real cops. Think before you act like a fucking idiot. YDI.
Thanks for the explanation Officer Douchebag. Why don't you go eat a bacon filled donut or something you pig. Its cops like you who make daily life for people suck by arresting for petty offences. I mean you pigs will arrest a kid for smoking cigarettes and give out some outrageous traffic ticket, but you wont do anything about the numerous and dangerous gangs will you? Not only do i smell bacon, i also smell pussy.
hhaha you're a fucking joke!
you think cops stand around all day?
the majority of them actually do their jobs k? the ones that sit at corners looking for speeders etc, that's because they're NEW COPS, and are only trained to do that.
and you commenting on how they should catch gangs and shit, well FYI it's not exactly easy. I'd like to see you do that and then have to deal with the 95% of teens who completely disrespect cops, which clearly would make your job harder.
wanna know why cops are so bloody rude to stupid shit-disturbing teenagers? because of the lack of respect. you think they're Pigs? are you the one that has to deal with telling families when a member dies? can you imagine telling someone parents their kid has died?
personally, i think YOU are the "pig" in this situation and you should get a reality check.
See this is why we dont try out the first idea that pops into our head. Seriously at what point did impersonating a police officer EVER sound like a good idea?
Where did you get the flashing lights to pull people over anyway?
And I hope you hadn't planned to get out of the car after pulling them over, cause then they'd just call the cops and report you for it once they realised you werent actually a cop.
YDI, definately. Enjoy your new criminal record.
Wow that is illegal, unethical, obtuse and just lame and stupid. What was your plan next douche bag? To rob the people, harass them, follow them home, steal their car, scare the shit out of them? What if that was an elderly person? You do realize that people posing as cops have raped, murdered, assaulted and stole people's cars right? You are an ass hat and I hope get into serious trouble. Some things are funny, others are beyond moronic...they are dangerous.
Oh not too mention, it is arrogant fucks like you that make the rest of us scared to pull over for ACTUAL police officers because we hear of imbeciles like YOU! You do this for fun? That means you probably have a fake badge, ID and lights and sirens as well! I hope you pay big time for this! This is as bad as people who pretend to be homeless to guilt people into giving them money! Grrrr I am angry...
In response to number 12:
I do not for one second believe that this is fake. A guy I went to high school with got busted a few months ago for posing as an undercover cop and pulling people over. However, he got a few of them before he got busted, so I doubt this is the same guy. Where'd he get the lights? Undercover cop, probably only needed a rotating red high-beam to stick on the dash. That would probably get most people.
Seriously though, you deserved it. That was just plain dumb.
How do you know he wasnt another jackass like you pretending to be an undercover cop? Except maybe he was pretending to be a sergeant, so he pulled pretend-rank on you?
Then the two of you could go to a pretend precinct headquarters and pretend to have an interrogation.
Anyway... how do you just "pull over cars"? And what happens if you pull over an armed ex-felon who has already decided he's "never going back to jail"?
See, here's the thing about this. What you did - impersonating a police officer - is a felony. And since you claim that a real plainclothes officer now knows what you did, I have an extraordinarily difficult time believing that you might be telling the truth. In fact, unless you're writing this after leaving the courthouse, I'm absolutely positive that you're full of shit. What you did or claim to have done is idiotic and just plain dangerous. Grow the f up, get a job, and stop harassing otherwise law-abiding citizens.
wow seriously this isnt that big of a deal. why are you people getting so worked up about this. he didnt try to rape or steal thier car so it doesnt matter. and before you guys start going off the handle again i am a cop. i would maybe give this guy a citation and tell him to knock that shit off maybe scare him abit but seriously theres worse people for us to worry about out there.
#52. When I was away at college, me and a friend of mine got pulled over by someone that was impersonating an officer. He took all of our ID's and acted as if he were a a regular stop. After none of us having done anything wrong we were told to get out of the car and he did a search on us and the car, and supposedly found drugs on us, even though we have NEVER touched them. If it weren't for the bouncer at the bar across the street, and the police station being a three minute walk down the street, who knows what would of happened to us, because it was found out this was the same guy raping girls from campus
So yes this is a BIG deal. and for you to think otherwise, makes me wonder what is a big deal to you.
#56, we're getting worked up because it's WRONG! I too used to work for a HUGE police department. Its a FELONY. With all the officers who get injured or killed doing "routine" stops, this numb nuts not only put HIS life in danger, but also other officers. I know I sure as hell don't want people to stop pulling over for unmarked units because "oh, its probably just a prank", or to not take real stops seriously, as this could cause HUGE officer safety concerns. #30 had a great point too "And what happens if you pull over an armed ex-felon who has already decided he's "never going back to jail"? " We had this happen in our precinct, and the officer died, because the BOL didnt get put out fast enough these people were felons.
So I'm sorry YOU dont think this is a big deal, but clearly it is. Maybe you should re-evaluate your career path. Because if you would seriously just laugh and let this go, you're seriously doing your brothers and sisters in blue a HUGE dis-service.
Down here in TX thats a class B misdemeanor for violating "Sec. 37.12. FALSE IDENTIFICATION AS PEACE OFFICER; MISREPRESENTATION OF PROPERTY."
I mean good freakin grief are you trying to get arrested, or are you just stupid enough to think you can do their job without the year and a half or so of training?
#52 is so obviously not a cop. And if by some stroke of God that he/she actually is...what an incredible idiot. Both my parents are cops & I'm applying after I graduate from college in May & I guarantee we'd all be incredibly pissed about this tool. Give this guy a citation and scare him a bit? Great plan! So...what will your story be when this guy does the same thing and then does something truly terrible? He's not pulling over friends, he's pulling over random people. That is SCARY and indicative of having some SERIOUS issues.
Stuff like this makes it hard for real cops to do their jobs because people are nervous to pull over. Who knows when something awful could happen--as many people have cited here (ie #71 & #141). I hope this guy gets in serious trouble.
I don't really need to be saying anything, because it's all been said before. Thank #18 and everyone else who pointed out the absolute idiocy of this.
As for whether or not he would be in jail, this crime is--unfortunately--still a misdemeanor in some states, meriting only a fine. I hope your sorry ass got charged with every possible fine/sentence available.
@#16 THANK YOU! I've wanted that button for a really long time!
Seriously though, it's a rule of thumb never to pull over in a secluded area by an undercover police officer. Wave to him so he knows and then go to a very public area. Instantly make sure you ask for his identification as well. Assholes like this guy rob, rape, hurt, and humiliate people for their own sick pleasure while posing as police officers. Just because they're in uniform doesn't mean you have to believe them! A lot of states now are starting to get rid of undercover cops mainly because of this problem.
I hope you go to jail for this. You're a complete moron and I'm happy to hear you didn't fool anyone.
#53 As much as I agree that this guy is the biggest moron that I've seen post here, it is not illegal to mount emergency lights on your car. I was once a volunteer fireman and I didn't even need a note from the chief to mount them on my truck. Maybe it's a problem in some states but not in any I'm familiar with.
damn lucky you got a cop and not some criminal with a list of warrents ten miles long who will do anything to stay out of jail.
and everyone whos saying this cant be real because hed be in jail....have you ever heard of this little thing called bail? you do not usually sit in jail for the year or more it may take for your case to get to trial. i have little doubt this is real.
234-Murderers, rapists, armed robbers, and plenty of other pieces of shit get bail, so its not unlikely for someone who was impersonating an officer to receive bail as well. Especially if he had no intentions of raping, robbing, or committing some other criminal act to his victims. If this is real, which i still believe it is, OP was probably out on bail within days. Remember in most states you only need to post 10 percent of bail. So if bail is set at 10,000 you only need 1000 to get out
You are an idiot for doing this, as you can go to jail for impersonating a police officer.
#234 - you have no idea what you are talking about. A felony charge will not, in itself, make a judge deny bail. People charged with felonies get released on bail all the time. Also, when bail is denied it is generally NOT because the individual is seen as a threat to society (not all felonies are dangerous). It's generally because the person is viewed as a flight risk.
Please never speak about the law or the courts again.
Nothing I said comes from court shows. I don't watch television - my schedule is too busy to do so.
No, not all felonies are dangerous. The ones you mentioned are, yes. But embezzlement, theft above $500 (or whatever amount a state designates), destruction of property above $500 (or whatever a given state chooses), burglary, etc. are all felonies, as well, and not a single one is inherantly dangerous.
People are bailed for drug crimes, and even homicides, on a regular basis. Local detention centers do not have the room to keep every criminal in jail until trial - it can take six months, a year, or even longer for many crimes to get to trial.
Just because someone is accused of a crime, even a dangerous crime, doesn't mean they are treated as though they have been convicted. Courts will let people go on bail if they have reason to believe the person will appear in court and face justice. There is a big difference between accused and guilty. Just because the average idiot on the street can't comprehend that doesn't mean a judge doesn't take it into consideration. That is not to say every person will get out on bail. A flight risk or someone who is perceived as especially dangerous (via their record or occasionally the seriousness of the crime) will be held without bail. But to be held without bail for being dangerous it has to be more than just the charge - it has to be the way the person treated officers, whether they can leave the state easily, how bad the crime was (a person accused of raping a child is less likely to be released than someone accused of a 4th degree sex offense against an adult (like grabbing a woman's breasts at a bar - yes, it is a felony in some states)), etc.
How do I know this? I have worked as a paralegal in two different law offices. I worked for a judge for 6 months, observing criminal indictments, arraignments, and trials throughout. I also represent prisoners RIGHT NOW. Think before you speak (or in this case type). Just because you think you are right doesn't mean you are. I certainly don't know everything, and I am a year away from officially being a lawyer, but I know how the courts work - very well. I work with the system every day.
Don't make assumptions about people. I assumed nothing about you except that you were misinformed. You, however, assumed that I got my information from TV without knowing that I am making a career of the practice of law and that, because I work and go to school full time, I don't even watch TV.
For those of you that say that this couldn't happen, I've found at least three documented cases that can be found at the url's below.
Lol i've tried this with mates. Managed to scare the shit outta a mate walking down the road. And scared some random at a bus stop. Only tried following behind a couple of cars at night with the lights on..nothing happened. They clearly looked fake.
And I know I shouldn't be helping the situation, but jf you're gunna do this again, the trick to it is to pull over pre-2000 cars. In low-to-moderate traffic areas. Then you'll know police aren't driving that car, and are less likely to be behind them.
