Kansas firefighter ‘not fooled’ by man pretending to be Shawnee police officer. Kansas firefighter Alex Stockman said he wasn’t fooled by a man pretending to be a Shawnee police officer who pulled him over while he was recently driving through the area. Stockman said he noticed red flags, like the fact that the man was not in uniform and that he was driving a much older car that did not look like the black and white Shawnee police patrol vehicles. He also noticed the man had a BB gun and was pretending like it was a firearm carried by police. [Man pretending to be Shawnee officer fails to fool man he pulled over — KCTV]
