Wisconsin Inmate Accused for Impersonating Police Officer While Serving Time for Impersonating a Police Officer

thumb_policeman_cartoonIf Joshua D. Kay wanted to be in law enforcement, he certainly has gotten his wish. Kay, 30, has been charged in Wisconsin for a second time for impersonating an officer. What makes this charge somewhat unique is that Kay was serving time on the first offense when he was charged for the second time.

The prosecutors charge that Kay has been telling other inmates that he is actually a sheriff’s deputy, working undercover to investigate other deputies. He was already serving for three misdemeanors, including his 2007 conviction for turning on flashing red lights and a siren on his personal car to pursue a speeder. Unfortunately for Kay, the other car was being driven by an off-duty police officer.

It is a rare to see a charge based just on an oral representation, particularly in a jail where prison personas are often manufactured.

  1. I apologize up-front because I know this isn’t the appropriate thread to make this posting to but I need some guidance:

    There was an article on Huffpo today about the Filibuster and why it is a losing tactic to force one from the Republicans which explains Reid’s decision to not use the tactic:


    Since I spend a small part of each day emailing the White House and/or various other politicians I wanted to email Reid’s office about this but lacked the knowledge to compose an appropriate email. I still think he ought to do it just for the headlines: ‘Republicans Hold Up Vote On —-‘ like some of the comment’s to the article advocate.

    On the other hand I wanted to check the actual rules for a filibuster so I searched the Internet for awhile trying to find the answer to a question about the mechanics of a filibuster and came up with little to nothing but I do still have a specific question so maybe someone here can help me out.

    Since the party filibustering doesn’t have to actually talk except to call for a quorum count every now and then is there a way to make them talk within the rules? Can questions be asked of the senator’s filibustering by the party in opposition to the filibuster? It would seem to me that this would be great political theater and a way to make some great speeches for the record cloaked as questions. Is that allowed?
