I belong to a group called The Secret is in the Sauce. If you’ve read my blog before, you probably know about them cause I’ve posted about them many times. It’s a group of blogging gals, called SITS (Sisters in the Sauce) and me, a BITS. (Brother in the Sauce) Anyway, one of the “requirements” of belonging to this group is to visit the main blog every day and leave a comment on the current post. The post will also list links to other SITS member’s sites where we visit and leave comments as well. Now, what does this have to do with fake cops?
Well, I was leaving my comment today when I noticed that the day’s first commenter was Kristan over at The Cover Family Chaos. Kristan is a mother to three and married to a man in law enforcement. Today she posted about her experience with being stopped by a cop impersonator on the way home from the Wal-Mart.
This is serious stuff folks. This woman was heading home from a public place with child in tow. Obviously nothing happened or she would not have been able to post about it. And although she doesn’t offer any advice as to what to do in the situation, her story is compelling none-the-less. If you don’t think it could happen to you, think again. Go read her story here to find out what happened and how the local authorities handled it. And for more reading about what to do if you suspect the officer stopping you is not a real officer, go here or here.
