It's "Two" subby. Any single-digit number should be written out, especially if it's the beginning of a sentence.

So, next time I'm in that area, if I get pulled over at night, I'm gonna turn on the 4-ways and my interior lights and slow down until I can get to a well-lit area with people around. And call 911 hands-free to try to verify it's a cop.

If it's an actual cop, they'll have backup in a hurry.

Did they pull over an actual cop for a bonus?

I think you can just look at the name of the news source and figure out the state.
 
2021-01-25 1:57:41 PM  
There's a ton of Youtube videos of police impersonators being arrested and whatnot. I especially like the bits where the real cop says; So you wanna be a cop huh? Fine, let's show you the jail first"

If you ever suspect if someone is pulling you over that you feel isn't a law enforcement officer, call 911 to validate the traffic stop.

Yeah. Go ahead. Reach for a cell phone in the middle of a traffic stop, and you'll be automatically entered into the "How Many Bullets Did Your Cell Phone Stop?" pool at the local ME's office.

We see these stories from time to time and it's so bizarre to me. Why would you do this? Are they just bored?

"Sarasota Police officers were able to make contact with McDowell, who was the driver, and Poole, who was a passenger. They are currently at the Sarasota County Jail on unrelated charges in addition to the charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer and false imprisonment"

What treasures these two seem to be.

Power. From the sound of it, they were terrorizing the people in the car. That would be like a drug to someone with zero power or authority in their actual life.

Cellphones are a cop's best friend.

FTA: Police say McDowell and Poole can be heard saying, "driver, exit the vehicle," "put your *******
hands up driver," "I need everyone to exit the ******* car," "do not make a move," "Black lives don't ******* matter," and "anybody move and I will shoot."

Some people like the power behind being a fake cop. Some do it to get money, drugs, or far more worse things. I don't know about this case though because there were two of them in on the scam.

I watch the ones on Youtube being arrested and the last one I saw was an old white man pretending he was a Federal Agent of some sort. He pulled over a real cop (going home from his shift) Before you knew it 4 other cops showed up. "So if I call your supervisor, he'll explain you're on an undercover mission and you pulled over a motorist?"

Oh I love it when the fake one's start to cry. "Please, don't arrest me"

uh huh.

Wouldn't recommend trying it if you're not white and from a wealthy family.

I was sitting right next to this car at a stop light last night about 3 miles from where this happened. Typical for around here, older ford crown vic, or similar, with the spotlight still attached after being sold at auction. All you need are flashing lights, a siren, and a gullable person that doesn't realise that police departments around here don't use old cars!

I am ashamed to say I have seen them all. And there is new content all the time. My favorites are his own body cam videos. Who the fark provides a prosecutor hours and hours of footage showing themselves committing felony after felony? fark Tiger King. This guy is the real delusional legend.

This reminds me of the time that I got pulled over with my pit crew while traveling between races in the Deep South. They ordered us out of the truck and accused us of transporting illegal liquor across state lines for the purpose of distribution. My crew chief joked that it was more about consumption than distribution, but that didn't seem to sway them.

One of the female officers pushed me up against the side of the truck and made me spread 'em. She proceeded to pat me down and, when she got to my groin area, she called out to her fellow officers that she had found a "concealed weapon." Then, she flung me around to face her and she ripped open her shirt to reveal her ample, firm breasts in a black push-up bra and challenged me to "use it." Well, I was downright flabbergasted!

Then everyone started laughing and I realized that the whole thing was an eleborate practical joke based on a popular 80s movie. After we stopped laughing, I took the "cop" from behind while everyone watched quietly.

It was willing to go with it till the "watched quietly" part.  If porn is any indication, it's obligatory to yell "Woo!" and act like a frat rat at a kegger any time you're an audience member for that sort of thing.
