Spotted: Do Not Mess with the Cap Police

Though rushing to beat the rain, myself along with multitudes of other staffers respectfully adhered to a Capitol Police Officer who instructed us to stop as he directed traffic. However, one lanky hilltern--complete with khakis and a blue blazer--ignored the Officer's request and proceeded to charge across the street.

The Officer yelled at him to stop but to no avail. Finally, he grabbed the kid get him to pay attention, at which point the hilltern flashes his scarlett letter and yells "Get your hands off me you Rent-A-Cop." It was like a sad re-enactment of Lloyd Christmas shouting "It’s ok...I'm a limo driver" in Dumb and Dumber. Unfazed by hillterns comically unjustified powertrip, the Officer grabbed the scarlet letter, wrote hilltern's info down and sent him on his way.
