This is creepy

Apparently there's someone running around near here impersonating a police officer. They've had 4 reports so far, and they're spread out all over the county. (it's irritating the news isn't specifying what type of officer he was impersonating - city/county/state). It's not the first time, either - I remember there was another one not that long ago, over the summer maybe? Is this really common and just doesn't make national news or do we just have an abundance of wanna be cops around here?

  • Wow I would be scared out of mind and not trust any cop. A few years back someone put a police light and siren in their car and would pull people over and either beat and rob them or if it was a female rape her. They put out a thing saying if a cop was behind you call the dispatch to see if it was a real cop. I guess they caught the guy pretty fast after that becuase he try to pull over an unmarked police car.

  • I remembet years ago watching a show because there were a string of these...


    They were saying if your on an isolated road and your being pulled over and are scared...to put your blinkers on, slow down but keep driving to a lit public area (like a WAWA or 7-11 parking lot)....or as your driving call 911 an your cell to see if it was a real cop.


    I don't know how often it happens but it is creepy as hell,,,,,

  • It has happened in my area a lot. They would pull a woman over and do horrible things to her. Now in my area if you're being pulled over and not sure if it's a real cop they tell you to call 911 b4 pulling over to make sure you're really being pulled over....

    That is my professional advice. A rarity. I agree with sweet.
