Boy, 14, Impersonates Chicago Police Officer

By Wyatt Earp | January 26, 2009

baby-copAnd 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.

Little bastard.

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!

    In a town where the dead vote, I think it should be OK for a 14 year old to be a cop.

    Sorry - I can better that in stupidity:

    In Aberdeen, Scotland (not England this time). A male stripagram cop was arrested, charged and taken to court. He was acqitted of impersonating a police officer and the case then revolved around him possessing 2 offensive weapons.

    No, both truncheons. The Judge found that as he had them as props he was entitled to carry them! Not guilty.

    (He had been arrested several times before so was a known serial offender)

    Ya think his partner for the day will ever live it down..?

    I can think of a few dozen cruel jokes without even trying…

    I heard a rumor that he only got caught because he hesitated before taking a bribe from local drug dealers.

    The only way this story could be funnier is if the kid managed to get on the security detail protecting Obama’s empty house.

    Sounds like what Chicago’s police force has is a lot of adults pretending to be police…

    That city has never ever been right. I think it is built on a mound of toxic stupidity.

    Brothers and sisters………..

    Let me tell you, in the 003 district this kid would have been a superstar. There is no security in any CPD station except HQ’s and that can be spotty. According to some old time friends still OTJ, he wrote ticketss and responded to assist calls. His “Senior” partner never knew he was nything but the police.

    God Bless the PPD………

    God Save the CPD…… one else can…..

    And this is news “WHY”? ?

    Chicago. Folks, we are talking about Chicago.

    Hasn’t the country got the picture yet?

    Mayor Daleys, first father, now son. Bloago. Obama.

    It’s Chicago, people!

    Didn’t the kid’s cracking voice and lack of facial hair stand out?

    There are some kids who really do look a lot older than what they are, but it is rare. Boys usually look younger and don’t age until their late teens early twenties. I’m surrounded by them.

    what’s even more asinine is the CPD officer’s lack of situational awareness is not seeing through anything even with this:

    “He was missing his police star, but that was not discovered until after he returned from traffic patrol. Police said the 14-year-old’s partner on the traffic assignment did not recognize the boy was underage.

    The source said the boy had an empty holster and a newspaper in place of a ballistic vest in his vest carrier.”

    what a freakin’ moron!

    Doghouse - And beaten repeatedly with his nightstick.

    John D - If he were really smart, he would have tried to arrest Blago and Jesse Jackson, Jr.

    Alan B - Is “truncheons” a euphemism?

    Sully - He would be better of retiring. Lord knows my co-workers are brutal.

    Kaveman - He wanted the bribe, but he requested gummy bears instead of cash.

    BobG - And I thought my department was bad.

    Admiral - Or an ancient Indian burial ground.

    LDIV - That is absolutely insane. Even more insane is the face that the partner never knew.

    Maggie Mama - I know, but this is idiotic even by Chicago standards.

    RT - Poor bastard.

    Prof - Unreal, and he makes great points.

    Smite - Apparently, security there is rather lax. Idiots.

    No. He was carrying 2 short staffs used previously for defense or counterattavck against violent offenders. In addition to hid regulation night stick.
