Firefighters: "We're being discriminated against by impersonators" - Too many police, not enough firefighter impersonators, says union

Funny story written by Ducksley

Just two days after a second man was arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer, the president of the local firefighters union said his organization is considering filing a lawsuit claiming discrimination against firefighters.

"You hear about people driving around impersonating cops all the time. They have fake badges and black and white cars with flashing lights, but nobody ever impersonates firefighters, and that's just plain wrong---it's discrimination," said Firefighters Local #113612473557 president Graham-Bob Heckenlebber.

He added that the union plans to institute a training program in the near future for would-be firefighter impersonators.

"This is an important issue and we feel it's also incumbent upon us to do our part to bolster the ranks of firefighter impersonators."
