La Vista Police Arrest Man On Charge Of Impersonating Officer Officer Thinks He's Helping Colleague

POSTED: 1:46 pm CST January 8, 2007 UPDATED: 5:08 pm CST January 8, 2007

LA VISTA, Neb. -- La Vista police said a man is under arrest after an officer watched him try to pull over another vehicle with flashing strobe lights on his SUV.

Guillermo J. Olivarres-Castro, 21, is charged with impersonating a police officer, among other charges.

Guillermo J. Olivarres-Castro

According to La Vista police, Officer Brian Stolley was on patrol near the 7400 block of South 66th Street when he watched a white 1999 Lincoln Navigator attempt to make a traffic stop on another vehicle using flashing strobe lights on the front grill of his vehicle. The officer initially believed the Navigator may have been an unmarked police car that was attempting to make a stop. The officer turned his vehicle around to help what he thought was a colleague, and in doing so talked to the Navigator's driver.

Officers located wiring from the strobe lights in the grill that led to a toggle switch in the vehicle.

Olivarres-Castro was transported and booked at the Sarpy County Jail.

Police said they're not sure Olivarres-Castro is a U.S. citizen. They said he showed a Mexican consulate card, not a driver's licenses.

Investigators said Olivarres-Castro admitted to police he was trying to get the other vehicle to pull over.

"The driver admitted he was acting like the police trying to pull over the other motorist because he felt the driver was driving crazy, erratic," said La Vista Lt. D.J. Barcal. "The concern is anyone could be pulled over under the assumption they're being pulled over by a legitimate law enforcement official."

Officers said they're not sure what Olivarres-Castro's intentions were once the other driver was stopped.

La Vista police want to know if there have been similar incidents in the recent past that have not yet been reported. Anyone with information can contact 402-331-1582.

More like planning to extort the driver for a "ticket".

If you impersonate an American citizen, nobody cares.

"he showed a Mexican consulate card,"

WTF?!?!?

For those who don't know what this is, it's the documentation on...(wait for it)....an 'undocumented worker'...
The only documentation sits in ol' Mejico

From http://www.migrationinformation.org/feature/display.cfm?ID=115

For the estimated 8.5 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, day-to-day life has always been precarious. Not only do they not have the legal right to live and work in America, but many cannot prove their own identity. Lack of identification prevents undocumented immigrants from accessing the few public and private services that are available to them and intensifies their fear of contact with police and other official institutions. The events of September 11 and the scrutiny of undocumented immigrants that followed deepened this anxiety. In this light, many of the estimated 4.7 million Mexicans living in the US without authorization turned to a little-known Mexican government identity document called the matrícula consular. The ID cards have given undocumented immigrants a sense of security but have been received with mixed reactions by public and private institutions.
....
Beginning in early 2002, Mexico enhanced the security provisions of the matrícula and the process used to issue it. It also conducted a well-organized campaign to educate US banks, police departments, and governments about the new features and encourage them to accept the matrícula as a valid form of identification. The campaign targeted two fundamental needs of undocumented Mexican immigrants: the ability to identify oneself to local law enforcement and the ability to access financial services in order to save and remit money.

Meant to include this in my previous post:

The local governments of 80 cities, including Tucson, Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, San Antonio, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, and Dallas accept the matrícula for uses such as obtaining a library card, entering public buildings, obtaining business licenses, registering children for school, and accessing a few, limited public services. At the state level, the most important use of the matrículas is in obtaining driver licenses. Although most states now require proof of legal immigration status, there are about 13 states that do accept the matrícula as proof of identity when issuing a license.

Was the driver of the car he was trying to pull over a woman or young girl? If so I hope they look into his background well. I would think setting up your car to pull people over is impersonating a police officer and who knows what he was really up to. They need to find out and see if anyone is missing or has been robbed by this guy or worse.

Wouldn't that be profiling and racist leaving the entire police force open to a lawsuit?

Do I have to put a sarcasm tag on this?

What?! Now the jack-booted thugs have some exclusionary right to strobe lights in their grills? When law-abiding citizens have their strobe lights confiscated, only criminals will have strobe lights. Are we going to lay down and give up all our rights... er, Lights?! What's next? We won't be able to hang our head out the window and go, "WOOOOOOOO-WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

Sheesh, bunch of boot-lickers.... The guy was taking it upon himself to enforce the laws because the police were too busy across the street in the Dunkin' Donuts parking lot. He shouldn't be facing jail time and loss of strobe lights, he should be given a medal!

Maybe.....But how many times do you hear of some sicko pretending to be a police officer and raping or killing women.....I really don't care about profiling. I think some people ought to be profiled. No matter what their race is. I know all about that profiling, my husband rides a Harley, has tattoos and isn't a yuppie. He gets pulled over all the time. Since he isn't doing anything illegal except maybe for the loud pipes on the HD its no big deal... Usually he ends up making friends with the cops. I am tired of all this BS with racism and lawsuits. Just make life safer for all of us and cut the BS out.

I'll bet he was Racially profiling other illegals (not hard to do in Nebraska) that wouldn't go to the cops.

Maybe they can charge him with that, too.

An illegal alien (AKA a Mexican national) enforcing the laws Americans won't enforce.
You can't make this stuff up . . . .

Back pain? Depending on the cause of the pain, this book could help: Healing Back Pain - The mind-body connection by Dr. John E. Sarno. It really worked for me!

"La Mordida" or "the bite", I believe it's translated, is a Mexican law enforcement tradition. Get stopped and pay the bribe to go about your business. Perhaps this man was attempting to introduce a little diversity into the American driving experience. Think of him as a cultural ambassador, remember diversity is our strength!

Think of him as a cultural ambassador, remember diversity is our strength!

The Path to National Suicide by Lawrence Auster (1990)

An essay on multi-culturalism and immigration.

Click the Pic!!!!

How can we account for this remarkable silence? The answer, as I will try to show, is that when the Immigration Reform Act of 1965 was being considered in Congress, the demographic impact of the bill was misunderstood and downplayed by its sponsors. As a result, the subject of population change was never seriously examined. The lawmakers’ stated intention was that the Act should not radically transform America’s ethnic character; indeed, it was taken for granted by liberals such as Robert Kennedy that it was in the nation’s interest to avoid such a change. But the dramatic ethnic transformation that has actually occurred as a result of the 1965 Act has insensibly led to acceptance of that transformation in the form of a new, multicultural vision of American society. Dominating the media and the schools, ritualistically echoed by every politician, enforced in every public institution, this orthodoxy now forbids public criticism of the new path the country has taken. “We are a nation of immigrants,” we tell ourselves— and the subject is closed. The consequences of this code of silence are bizarre. One can listen to statesmen and philosophers agonize over the multitudinous causes of our decline, and not hear a single word about the massive immigration from the Third World and the resulting social divisions. Opponents of population growth, whose crusade began in the 1960s out of a concern about the growth rate among resident Americans and its effects on the environment and the quality of life, now studiously ignore the question of immigration, which accounts for fully half of our population growth.

This curious inhibition stems, of course, from a paralyzing fear of the charge of “racism.” The very manner in which the issue is framed—as a matter of equal rights and the blessings of diversity on one side, versus “racism” on the other—tends to cut off all rational discourse on the subject. One can only wonder what would happen if the proponents of open immigration allowed the issue to be discussed, not as a moralistic dichotomy, but in terms of its real consequences. Instead of saying: “We believe in the equal and unlimited right of all people to immigrate to the U.S. and enrich our land with their diversity,” what if they said: “We believe in an immigration policy which must result in a staggering increase in our population, a revolution in our culture and way of life, and the gradual submergence of our current population by Hispanic and Caribbean and Asian peoples.” Such frankness would open up an honest debate between those who favor a radical change in America’s ethnic and cultural identity and those who think this nation should preserve its way of life and its predominant, European-American character. That is the actual choice—as distinct from the theoretical choice between “equality” and “racism”—that our nation faces. But the tyranny of silence has prevented the American people from freely making that choice.

Hopefull he wasn't 'racially profiling' the suspect he pulled over. That might actually get our politicians upset about this.

A few things that did not make the local TV report...
Subject could barely speak English when interviewed by another local TV station.
Search of police records showed that the subject had been stopped and cited 6 previous times for driving w/o a license.
Bought the flashing blue lights at a local auto parts store.
Area where 'stop' occurred is very dark and rural for the most part - not a good place to be pulled over.

Sad to say, I am starting to learn more Spanish... seems most of the contract housekeeping crew at my employment is of 'foreign origin'. The crew leader is an African-American woman who has been there for years and is having to learn Spanish just to keep her crew pointed in the right direction.. She tells us it's hard for someone in her age group (late 50's) to adjust.. They are good workers - she just has to keep on her toes so they don't mix the wrong two cleaners together and gas all of us..

I should have said I was being sarcastic, I despise the liberals for what they have done to our country in my life time.
The Dems have been the party of political opportunistism, social engineering and treason since what, the 1850's?
I can't think of a single Democratic policy iniative, foreign or domestic, advanced by them for short term political gain in 100 years that hasn't been disastrous in the long term for the larger polity and society as a whole.

Oh, I knew you were being sarcastic. I just wanted to show that people have known about this problem for quite some time. I think Auster's analysis is 100% correct and have been telling everyone pretty much the same thing. Diversity means division not unity. It forces us to focus on what is different about each other instead of what we have in common.
