Faking It

Nothing Uniform About It, Officer

A Chinese motorist has been arrested for hanging up a fake police uniform in his car to deter thieves. Police pulled up the car in Taiyan and 25-year-old driver said he hung it up to scare off thieves after his car was broken into previously. Police released the driver after cautioning him - and after confiscating the uniform.

FOOTNOTE: Corporal’s punishment.

Hmmmmmmm, another classic case to which I usually think, "something smells fishy and it ain't salmon".

His attorney said he had a suit.

Oh my! That didn't work for me when the uniform was mine...don't know know he expected to get away with it...somewhere someone is quite enjoying the stereo system that plays all the sweeter because they stole it from a cop!

What a brilliant idea. Perhaps this will work with my nephews' Scout uniforms. It's worth a try!

Well, if you believe that, you'd believe anything! Mind you, it could just be true!
