Cop fakes cop. WTF?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 2:43 PM

So says this Fox 2 news report. Seems Detroit cop James Markham enjoyed his off-duty hours last year patrolling local streets in his cop-like black Dodge Charger — one fitted with tinted windows and custom red and blue lights! — and meting out some kind of horseshit justice. Sheesh, where’s old Robert Urich when you need him? Wayne County prosecutors are on it though, filing a number of complaints against Markham “that include knowingly possessing a license plate that came off another vehicle, illegally putting that plate on his vehicle, and conducting illegal traffic stops in his Detroit neighborhood and outside of the city.” Markham’s at home now, suspended without pay.
