For some reason, Las Vegas seems to attract its fair share of police impersonators, although it’s truly a nationwide problem.
It doesn’t help that some of these obviously disturbed individuals can buy badges and equipment at auction and realistic strobe lights, that are widely available to anyone.
It goes without saying that someone who impersonates a police officer or other law enforcement official suffers from a personality problem.
For whatever reason, they relish having the power of a “police officer” and they come from all walks of life.
Some may be frustrated Security Officers, others may simply hate women and want power over them.
They can be very dangerous.
In 2008, a former police detective was arrested on charges he and another man offered three-day classes for $860 in New York and New Jersey to teach students how to restrain people with batons, pepper spray and handcuffs. Prosecutors said nearly 80 of the students were convicted felons.
Impersonators have raped women in their homes and robbed people. Some appear to be more harmless and attempt to direct traffic and perform more mundane functions.
The Federal agent imposter in Las Vegas has proven already that he is dangerous.
He is described as a white man who is between 45 and 55 years old. He is approximately 6 feet tall and weighs between 200 and 220 pounds. He has long brown hair and goatee.
