A fourteen year old boy posed as a Chicago police officer, even going on patrol, for nearly an entire day before he was finally discovered. An officer noticed that he did not have the appropriate badge which gave the ruse away. Chicago Police said it was a serious security breach and could not understand, how he could have pulled it off without being discovered for so long. A Chicago preacher, whom the boy was living with, said that he was fascinated with police work and simply wanted to be a part of it.
I guess Joe Friday, Kojak, Barney Fife, and Andy would be proud. Let’s hope he had more than one bullet in his gun. Or did he have a gun? I guess the Chicago Police forgot to ask or check.
