How dumb is this?

Quote
Mike’s high-visibility identifier is designed to be displayed by law enforcement and security personnel while in civilian attire.  The banner is essentially a sash, worn diagonally across the body and visible from nearly any angle.  It is a straightforward design, minimalistic though with a strong visual impact.



This has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard of. As an officer responding to a scene, some asshole wearing a DSM "Don't shoot Me" "sash" isn't going to change anything. If I roll up on a scene, and some asshat with a "sash" that says police or whatever on it, it's not going to make me any less suspicious of this person, if they have a gun, they will lose that gun, and be taken out of the situation. The sash will serve no purpose, it's just fucking stupid. Anyone could make or buy a sash and put it on and claim to be anything they want. It's just fucking useless and stupid. If I'm in plain clothes, I'll display my badge to be seen, and do as I'm told when the boys in uniforms show up. I'll ditch my gun and eat pavement for them to secure the scene. If I have someone at gun point, they can take over, and It's probably safe at that point to be disarmed. This stupid sash will not replace communication, awareness, and common sense. This idea is so stupid that it actually makes me angry. :banghead: :wtf:

Am I the only one that thinks this is beyond stupid?

Not being part of or knowing anyone close that is part of LE, I would've always assumed if you were in plain clothes as soon as the clothed Leos arrive you would do whatever they asked.

Like you said, common sense

Yup, nothing will replace common sense and communication... especially not a stupid sash.

I think these are seriously one of the most asinine things I've seen in a while...what if you're just out to enjoy a night with your bros and throw back a few beers...no badge or gun on your person....why the fuck would you want to wear a sash advertising what your job is? Can I get one that says Haunt Director? Or maybe AutoCAD OPERATOR?

I guess I didn't clarify, they want you to wear it in a pouch on your belt until the shit hits the fan, then you are supposed to be able to pull it out of the pouch with your off gun hand and pop it over your head quickly.

So....I guess I should carry one in my laptop bag and whip it out if any AutoCAD OPERATIONS need OPERATING? :lol: This shit is seriously dumb....if shit hits the fan and you're packing your heater, common sense dictates you would also have your badge....so why wouldn't you display that instead of a 16a beauty queen sash?
