So are they looking into his allegations about problems at his previous job?  I guess not.

Funny thing about Indiana law enforcement...they think they have jurisdiction everywhere in the state...

...at least, according to one of the power-tripping LEOs I was rather unfortunate to encounter. Tried to give my cousin a ticket for "crossing a railroad track without stopping". Despite having four witnesses (myself, my mom, an aunt, and another cousin) to the contrary, he was subjected to a verbal beatdown from the fucking cop, saying, "I'm an Indiana cop...I can write a ticket anywhere in the state I want, for whatever reason I want!"

Pretty sure Barney Fucking Fife there had his ass handed to him in court, and my cousin was vindicated. I don't really know, as mom and I left for home a few days later.

So his police brothers are in a quandary as to whether to condemn him for impersonating a cop, or stick by him as part of the "Thin Blue Line"?

Weaver allegedly asked "if there could be a crime of impersonating a police officer if a police officer was the one who sent the email," according to court documents.

"Am I immune to the consequences of my actions? Hypothetically speaking. Why are you looking at me like that?"

Wait...I thought that they could lie whenever to catch people....

After turning himself in, Deputy Weaver was booked and arrested just like any other suspect in a criminal case.

In a just world, this sentence would have been so obvious and commonplace as to not be necessary in an article about a cop who committed two felonies, because a cop suspected of criminal acts should be exactly just like any other suspect in a criminal case.

In fact, it's so goddamned novel that they felt it necessary to explicitly state it here. It wasn't slid under the rug. It wasn't slid into a file thanks to a little quid pro quo from the union. It wasn't characterized as a "mistake," or something that "occurred in the heat of the moment," or involved "a split-second decision," nor did he end up on a handsomely-compensated administrative leave pending a years-long investigation.

He was just... y'know, arrested.

And no one spoke of it again? I'd asking for daily updates.

He sent an email claiming the cops were being bad cops.

He's screwed.

Don't the grown-up cops explain to the baby cops that they shouldn't do illegal things when they hire on?
