Living in the Chicago-ish area and being a frequent visitor to family who lives in the city, I'm almost not surprised. Hubby and I were talking
about this happening earlier today and I told him that at some point you have to wonder if they shouldn't just cut the kid a paycheck and tell him to
come back for a guaranteed open position on the force once he's of age. If, as a 14 year old, this boy was able to fake it well enough to not fall
under suspicion for around 5 hours or so, he must have been doing the job as well as any legitimate officer from that district station. He deserves a
paycheck it sounds like.
Not that I approve of what he did, but I am definitely amused by it on one hand and just a little bit horrified on the other hand. I would be
uncomfortable being a resident of this area knowing that my police department had been able to be fooled so thoroughly. What happens next time when
it isn't some seemingly well meaning kid?
