Routine traffic stop

I don't see anything wrong with this. A concerned citizen pulls over a few motorists and pretends to be a police officer. Whatever happened to the citizen's arrest? He's probably just concerned about the safety and welfare of his neighbors...

Man posing as officer stops two cars

Hamburg police are searching for a suspect who used a red “gumball” light to conduct two traffic stops Monday morning while posing as an officer.

The suspect initiated the traffic stops between 4:30 and 4:45 a. m. in the Armor Duells area of Hamburg near the Orchard Park line, town police said.

During the traffic stops, the suspect approached the vehicles and asked drivers for their license and vehicle registration, police said. He then reportedly got back into his car and left the scene.

The man, who was reportedly driving a small, dark-colored SUV, was not dressed in uniform, and no siren was used during the traffic stops. He was described by witnesses as a white male in his early 20s, about 5-feet, 8-inches tall and between 160 and 200 pounds.

Actually, this is pretty scary. Who knows what this wackjob's motives might be? This act is so premeditated. He had to purchase a fake badge and a fake light. He's probably a guy who wanted to be a cop, but couldn't pass the test or the psychological exam. I wonder if this is related to a similar crime, which took place recently in Cattaraugus County?

  1. You haven't been covering the parent trigger law.

    If you, do me a favor and look up what is going on in Compton.. And what is really going on, not what the buffalo news or the la times tells you.

    This blog covers politics and Cali and the guy has wrote a lot about the parent trigger law and lists other good sources.

    And in regards to williams.. Not all his staff is as bad as him. Some are very good at what they do, like Will Krestas. I honestly would hope they make him the next superintendent, but I am told he isn't the right color for the job.
