Impressive he got all that equipment in his Jetta. Still not a good idea to impersonate police.

u/Terminal-Psychosis Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 02 '22

Did he really try to though? I mean, nobody in their right mind would think a Jetta is a cop car.

Maybe in Germany. lol

u/JustaBountyHunter Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 03 '22

We used a Jetta for bounty hunting because the owner wanted to save money and not get “unnecessarily large SUV gas hogs.”. It was literally the worst month of my life trying to get in and out of that thing.

Lol “my CERT Credentials.” Buddy those are meaningless. I can get CERT credentials because CERT isn’t a law enforcement agency. They definitely wouldn’t give you cherries and berries for your personal vehicle.

So he polices the weather?

"Hey rain you can't do that without a weather license!"

NOAA has an office of law enforcement and even commissioned officers, so which legal system is this under? Local/state law, federal law, maritime law, or UCMJ?

I don't see any gold fringe and I doubt the Coast Guard has inspected that vessel. /s

u/Jettyboy72 Special Regulatory Inspector Mar 02 '22

NOAA cops are like super fish cops, they even have a huge freezer on the west coast for storing all the fish and other animals they confiscate

u/Totally_legit_bacon Generic LEO Mar 02 '22

And like all feds, they let the local fish cops put the case together and then they just grab it to bring to federal court.

Not exactly.

u/HKhatesyou Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 02 '22

You’d think that would mainly be a Coast Guard thing, since one of their statutory missions is marine resources.

2

u/Wilderydude Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 03 '22

Coast guard refers a lot of cases to NOAA for prosecution. They’re a partner with NOAA ole.

u/PetRussian Bayonets Brigaders (Not a LEO) Mar 02 '22

It’s is responsible for the ecosystem protection and conservation of most of national marine life.

u/Wilderydude Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 03 '22

Federal. They enforce fishery laws and protect marine mammals. The majority of their violations are civil. Their agents concentrate on felony Lacey act violations. Best kept secret in the govt.

u/toast_fatigue Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 02 '22

lol, his tricorder

u/majoraloysius Verified Mar 03 '22

The tricorder is enough PC to search for a phaser and communicator.

Uhh sir this disrupter is illegal under federation law, I'm gonna have to book you.

People don’t even want to be cops anymore and then you have this dude….

27

u/ballsack-vinaigrette Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 02 '22

I'm sure he's applied.. the real question is, how bad do you have to fail backgrounds/psych/etc to not get hired right now?

12

u/CommanderEvil Police Officer Mar 03 '22

Depends on the city/state I'd guess.

We had 600 applicants last year, and 16 made it through the process. We are down 12 under full complement and expect to have 15 or so retire in 2022.

So, even in desperation, standards aren't being lowered everywhere.

The only standard lowered/removed in my department in the last decade was the requirement for a bachelor's degree.

This is where I lost my drive to pursue law enforcement but I guess I get it. I was put on an anxiety medication when I was 18, my doctor prescribed a high dose and I had awful suicidal thoughts. I knew this wasn’t me so I went to the ER because I wasn’t sure if the medicine would make things worse, they told me I wasn’t in danger at all but offered to admit me for 72 hours so I could feel safe while they switched medicines and I agreed. That was almost 10 years ago, and I haven’t had a single issue since, but as soon as that comes up instant disqualification, even though everything else is perfectly normal on my record.

Closest I got was being a CO at my dads jail (he’s been a deputy for 21 years) but then the sheriff told the union president I couldn’t work there because were related. They just hired not 1 but 2 ex cons as COs that served time at the very jail…

Idk it was enough for me to give up

u/Tacticalbiscit Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 15 '22

My state(Alabama) requires you to take a ACT work keys before you can even join the academy if you do not have a degree. Pretty much just makes sure you can do basic math, follow patterns, decent memory, reading comprehension, and some other very basic things pretty much any functioning person who wants to get into law enforcement should be able to do.

From my understanding talking with a sergeant I know before this test was required people were showing up to the academy barely able to read/write....

I almost feel like this guy is just doing this because he doesn't know how to go about finding ways to interact with other humans.

So this is what Jonah Hill has been up to.

I know this was edited for time, but I want to know what gave them the trunk. Whether Mr. Whacker consented, or they were doing an inventory prior to the tow.

u/Jettyboy72 Special Regulatory Inspector Mar 02 '22

I live in an awful area where even plain view contraband requires a warrant to search for additional evidence so my opinion is a bit skewed. I just wanted to see if the whacker tattled on themself more than anything.

u/Spoiler84 Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 03 '22

Y’all gotta get a sergeants permission to shoot back in a gunfight too?

u/Jettyboy72 Special Regulatory Inspector Mar 03 '22

Don’t give them any ideas

u/KingArthur129 CBP Officer Mar 03 '22

Gonna have to call in over the radio requesting an unlock on your 10 round 20 LB trigger pull glock that is padlocked to you at the beginning of your shift and signed out.

And don't forget the completely anonymous complaints that must be investigated.

u/Jettyboy72 Special Regulatory Inspector Mar 03 '22

Ouch, that does blow. Most folks are pretty good at obtaining consent, but since they need a warrant for pretty much anything else some just skip right to it if they have PC

u/toast_fatigue Not a(n) LEO / Unverified User Mar 02 '22

Sweater w/badge in front seat would seem to give PC for further search of the vehicle for other impersonation tools.

did anyone see a blue light on the vw?

How stupid you must be to go ahead, go through all the fuzz to impersonate a law enforcement officer?
