And he had more arrests in one day than I have in my entire career. The DUI pinch he earned was really impressive, especially since he arrested the suspect with his Transformers handcuffs.
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.
Bond said the boy “did not write tickets” and said there was “no information to indicate that he [was] ever behind the wheel.” (H/T - Burger714)
Okay, what the Hell is the matter with Chicago? Well, besides the rampant political corruption and the lousy sports teams. How did a supervisor not realize that a 14-year old was standing roll call? How did the boy’s partner not realize that the kid was 14 years old?
Maybe I should submit a transfer to the Windy City. Compared to these officers, I would be a freakin’ superstar!
