Three, you've heard of people impersonating LEO for less than savory purposes like rape and car-jacking, would thiss increase as well?
    And badges don't even stop cops from shooting other cops so why would anyone think that a badge is going to stop a criminal from shooting the badge holder?

How's the crime rate in liberal carry states? Low. Why? Because criminals have a deterrent where more people ccw. Why do people put alarm signs in their front yard & on their windows? It's called a deterrent. A gun on your side is the last thing you should ever have to grab unless you are going to kill someone. A deterrent . That's all we're taking about. Not playing cop. I personally don't like being poked with a stick by strangers in a park. But if they saw a small badge on my belt or around my neck, all I'm simply saying is, they'd probably not come up to me. And for maybe 3 hours a day, to have the piece of mind that I won't have to kill someone, I think a small metal deterrent is worth a life. Because the collateral repercussions of firing one shoot might lose you everything. Family, job, home.

    If the badge is laughable, again I'd have to ask, would you go up to person wearing only a badge & then screw with them ? I know I wouldn't, because it might land me a night in jail or shot. Because I would think them to be a ”public” servant.

    Just because you carry doesn't mean the sh!t won't hit the fan. I'm just trying prevent it from every flying my way.
    Ok so why go there one of the first things that come to mind when thinking about safty and self preservation is to avoid areas of conflict and to not willing go into high crime areas with out just cause! I mean really common sense would appear to dictate a different course of action here. Clearly you are not an leo based on your statements you have not duty to be in such areas so why do it?

    Carrying a shiny badge on your person (if you are not a cop) is a bad idea imvho.

    If you ever ended up having to utilize your sidearm in a self-defense situation, the prosecution would definately use that against you on numerous levels.

    Even assuming that the poster is asking a real question and not trolling he is very clearly stating that he intends to wear the badge/ hoodie/vest specifically to make people think he’s a cop.

    There’s not a jurisdiction in this country where that isn’t impersonating a police officer.

    Not everyone lives in a great neighborhood. Before I got married I lived on South Nevada in Colorado Springs, I had hookers turning tricks in the parking lot of the apartments I lived in. I couldn't walk from my apartment to work (2 blocks) without someone trying to sell me crack. Living in that neighborhood is the main reason I started carrying

    As a volunteer firefighter for 30+ years, I had a firefighter badge for many years, and on rare occasions it was useful primary to prove to LEO's that I had the right and duty to enter a scene. Otherwise it is was in my badge wallet, or pinned to my uniform shirt on the rare occasions I actually wore a uniform. I never wore it or displayed it when it was not clear I was a FF, not a LEO.

    Sometimes new guys were proud of their badge and would wear it on their belt in a holder. After being mistaken for a LEO, or worse a rent-a-cop often enough, and they took it off their belt and put it in their pocket or vehicle.

    Really bad idea. You can be charged with impersonating a peace officer. This can backfire on you in ways beyond being charged with a crime. I would strongly advise against it.

    Do the words on that "T" refer to the CC'er or to the assailant?

  10. Wow, what an old thread! A badge for CC'ers? That would be as funny as the astronauts running down a hospital hall in open backed gowns with the enema tubes still sticking out of their butts and trying to hold the bags; The Right Stuff.
