Posing as the cops

You might think twice about opening the door for anybody in the middle of the night.
Two armed men dressed as police officers forced their way into a home and robbed a family of their belongings.

The police impersonators knocked on the door of a home in the 5100 block of Bluff Street at 12:30 a.m. and asked the homeowner if he would come outside to identify a woman they had in custody, police said.

When the homeowner opened the door, the men forced their way inside the home and forced the homeowner, his wife and their 13-year-old son to lie face-down on the floor.

The men ransacked the home for about 40 minutes and got away with electronics. No arrests have been made.

(from KSAT-12)

This is why Rey Feo was arrested -- and rightly so -- for impersonating an officer when someone flipped him the bird on the highway. People who pose as cops when they are not are usually criminals, and they are a danger to everyone who depends on the police to keep the peace.
