Lol Cop

Pepper Spray Me led me this story in the Chicago Tribune about, Vincent Richardson, a 14-year-old who, apparently successfully, impersonated being a police officer for five hours. And not for the first time. And not just the normal pulling-over-cars-with-police-lights kind of thing. I mean this guy patrolled with a real live Chicago police officers and fooled him, too(!?). You would think the no gun or badge thing would raise eyebrows.

To paraphrase Chris Rock: Vincent Richardson is the Darius McCollum of Crime.

For some good inside info and stories go to http://secondcitycop.blogspot.com who works for that dept. Some Funny stuff... their department is in such disarray it's no wonder something like this happened.

"Anyone in this day and age who still thinks that strict gun control laws do anything to prevent drug-fueled, gang-related violence in the inner cities of America is a moron."

How does disarming me, or anyone else for that matter, have any affect on that?
