And badges don't even stop cops from shooting other cops so why would anyone think that a badge is going to stop a criminal from shooting the badge holder?Plain and simple, a badge is for law enforcement. If you give every Tom, ****, and Harry a badge you will create problems. For one, people will start to question the veracity of a LEO's badge. Two, please refer to the "having a gun doesn't make you a LEO" thread, vigilante-ism would probably see an up-tick. Three, you've heard of people impersonating LEO for less than savory purposes like rape and car-jacking, would thiss increase as well?
