Check Out the Badge
What do St. Louis police chiefs and the rapper 50 Cent have in common? Honestly, not too much, but they both possess a lot of bling bling. Apparently, the St. Louis police chief is sporting a $5,900 gold plated badge on his uniform, and his posse (top cops) are wearing $1,987 badges. The news of these superfluously ostentatious badges has spread all around the country — even people in big-government Boston are shaking their heads.
With this type of money, the whole police force could purchase Power Ranger badges and just morph when someone calls 911.
