    HOUSTON -- They sure looked like cops.
    The five men who barged through the door of a townhouse Monday wore Houston police raid jackets and carried Tasers and pistols. They cuffed the homeowner with a plastic tie, then kicked him in the stomach and started ransacking the place.
    Even a police officer who rushed to the scene after a neighbor called for help momentarily thought the criminals were legitimate law enforcement officers working with a tactical squad. Only after they started running did he realize the impersonators were burglars.
    Houston police—the real ones—arrested two of the fleeing suspects, but three burglars got away. And with that, the city had chalked up yet another case of criminals posing as police officers.

    Now that...takes balls! Make sure you lock up all your gear folks. I think we've all seen how easy it is to put together a uniform just by checking unlocked cruiser doors.

    I bet a good chunk of these these Fake cops are Illegal Immigrants\Drug runners. I remember reading a breif from the USBP\Customs about it.
