NYPD say three posed as police on Staten Island to get early copy of 'Grand Theft Auto V'

Silive - They posed as cops so they could play as crooks, police say.

A trio of over-eager video gamers-- one an auxiliary NYPD officer, other the son of a retired officer -- posed as cops to cut hundreds of people on a midnight line to buy the "Grand Theft Auto V" video game in the Staten Island Mall Tuesday, authorities allege.

The story is too old to be commented.

Its not funny it is an insult to the retired officer. An insult to the department and if something as simple as a heart attack would have happened to someone in the crowd they would have put lives at risk with their pretending. Its people like that whom make our job harder. You put on a uniform that is identical and the public have no idea who is a real officer or not. Meaning their actions may have been harmless to them but people will not hear the news that they were fakes and the people in line that day will think of the cops that cut in front of them and abused power to get a game.
