You're a Bad Man, Seargeant Bill

Did you hear about the fake FBI agent who entered a bunch of homes without warrants? The New York Times has the story about how this guy convinced the police that he was from the government, and didn't need search warrants or any other legal niceties to uphold the law. It played out like a modern-day "Catch Me If You Can" scenario.

I don't know which is creepier, that this civilian actually arrested people, or that real criminals might get to walk on a technicality.
