So, a duty belt, a Glock pistol, four extended capacity magazines, a taser, what appears to have been a genuine, complete Sacramento County Sheriff's
Deputy uniform, as well as a vehicle modified to appear to have police issue, dash mounted strobe lights?
If this was simply someone playing dress up, that is one expensive costume and props bill. I do not even know where to start thinking about how he
got the full uniform, although I wonder whether it is the current model, or whether it is an old, genuine set. Retired uniforms are easier to get a
hold of than current ones, one would assume. Wherever that came from, you have to assume he either paid a decent sum for it, or had to do something
sneaky to get it. However this Beaver fellow came about that uniform, you have to imagine it either cost a fair sum of money, or an awful lot of
effort, perhaps even a bit of both.
He also had a Glock and a taser, and although it is possible to purchase more expensive weapons, a Glock is not the first thing that comes to mind,
when someone says "cheap pistol". Tasers are not exactly something that one impulse buys either, unless they happen to have either a fantastical sum
of money, or absolutely no ability to prioritise effectively. Add to the cost of the previously mentioned items, the cost of the dashboard light array
in the car, and we could be looking at at least a couple of thousand dollars in "props" alone.
I have known some dedicated cosplayers in my time, but I have never known anyone who goes to the extremes this individual did. It certainly does not
seem like something that a person would do just for fun, or rather, thats one expensive, not to mention risky hobby to get into.
Of course, being an American, the fact that the fellow had a fairly decent collection of weapons at his home means nothing and cannot be used to
paint a picture of the man, because American households are often armed, and it should not be thought of as part of a mark against his name, or an
indicator of anything in particular, unless there is additional context, like some kind of manifesto, or some kind of indicator otherwise that there
are nefarious intentions afoot.
However, the sheer amount of money and effort gone to by this man to appear for all the world as if he is a sheriff's deputy, is concerning.
Realistically speaking, all larks about cosplaying aside, this smacks of someone getting ready to either perform or take part in some kind of criminal
conspiracy, a heist or a hit of some kind, and a well funded one as well. One wonders whether whatever was supposed to happen has happened, or whether
the capture of this Beaver fellow as a fraud has put off the other conspirators, if there are any.
There must be more to this than we are hearing currently, and I would love to know what it is!
