    Guess: Badge vs AK-47

    Two numnuts with AK-47s want to carjack a Corvette. Driver/Owner is a retired cop. He flashes badge and the numnuts run! Badge beats AK-47s in this case. Score two for the good guys.

    Nice story and good outcome but it would have been better to point a gun at the perps rather than a badge.

    Good that it turned out, but I don't think I would have bothered with the badge.

    Have to apologize, my first thought when I read that he showed his badge was the joke about the DEA agent and the bull. "Show him your badge!"

    Looks like the bad guys are down one set of wheels and they are still running. Bad day to be a bad guy.

    Just think if he had shot them then there would be riots and people like Kaepermick and and other sports figures would take a knee.

    That shield would not provide much cover - that's one lucky cop.
    Be careful of people who brag about who they are - a lion will never have to tell you who he's a lion.

    Maybe the LEO had already shot his yearly quota of Bad Guys and didn't want to get fined for exceeding his bag limit.

    I've heard of these, and consider them one of the dumbest things ever invented to separate people from their money.

    Am I the only one that questions why a retired police officer is flashing a police badge? Wouldn't this be impersonating a police officer o_O?

    I saw one of those badges at Bass Pro Shop in the Pyramid once. They cost around $10. I started to buy one for the novelty, then decided I didn't want to waste my money. I spent it on a burger at Uncle Mike's Fishbowl & Grill instead.
