I saw some comments on a couple of threads about the phoney "CCW" badges that are designed to look like police badges. My personal opinion is that no one would get one of those unless he/she/it wants to pretend to be a police officer. I saw an old guy on a city bus one day who became irritated with a young punk whose momma never taught him how to act in public. The old guy flashed his "I'm a proud ccw carrying phoney cop" badge and told the punk to sit down and shut up. The old guy's hands were trembling like crazy, because he apparently anticipated that the punk would know it was fake. He did know it was fake. The BG ridiculed the old guy, taunted him, until the bus driver stopped the bus and made the BG get off. Doing that crap can end up with the guy who flashes the badge being in more trouble than the person he "flashes".
