Let’s be honest… This could have ended WAY worse.

We all love a bit of crazy. It makes for a good story. It’s when the level of crazy surpasses the safe, zany, zone and starts becoming dangerous is when we stop being amused. Kind of like when a fuck-all crazy badge humper crosses the line of being a pathological liar and moves on to stalking women.
Kevin Cook, some maniac from Berkley, did just that. He’s got Ted Bundy written all over him.
People don’t just start pretending to be cops. Not to this extent. So, I went digging…
You see, Kevin had spent the majority of his adult years telling people he was a former cop. He wasn’t. He was a behavioral therapist for teenagers battling depression and somehow got his hands on a DCF badge. He would flash it, telling everyone it was his old police badge, and brag about things he’s never done. He acquired cop and fire fighter friends, most of whom knew he was full of shit. He bought an SUV that was the same make and model as many of the areas police cars. He had police stickers all over it. Had a cage installed between the front and back seats. Collected handcuffs, batons, lock pick sets and two-way radios that are only allowed to be utilized by first responders. He had pushbars installed on the front of it. His front seat was littered with a tough book laptop and tons of flashlights. One of Kevin’s friends said that he has an obsession with police lights.
He would use the DCF badge to get whatever he needed from speciality police stores.
The cops in the area knew he was a creepy fake asshole but they had to wait until he actually tried to pull someone over or pretend to be an official cop.
Kevin, according to this whackadingo wife, would spend his days and nights on the prowl living in his fantasy world. He would follow women around as they went from store to store. One woman, who knew him as “Kevin the cop” finally had enough and went to the actual police about this weirdo. He had been following her around for months.
Kevin even lied to his own family about his former service.
His wife, Tammie, is just as batshit as he is. She posted a frantic Facebook LIVE after Kevin had been arrested and she flipped though all of the receipts showing he was out lurking at all hours of the morning and night. She claimed she “knew” he was lying but stayed with his crazy ass anyways. She has made frantic posts accusing her husband’s stalking an act of sexual deviancy and cheating.
Yes, it was everyone else’s fault for not telling you he was a creep liar. Right. Who knows, she spent more time begging people to drop her off five packs of butts and searching for her pain medication the entire time she rambled incoherently to the camera about his big box store receipt time stamps. I’m not sure what I’m more surprised about – Tammie pretending she was surprised about this whole thing or her thinking that Kevin was banging the chick he was stalking.
It seems like these two toolbags have been at the maniac drama game for years. This was in response to a picture of the two of them together on her Facebook page:
…. seems legit.
Kevin’s stepdaughter even reached out to the woman he was stalking to let her know that she wasn’t being paranoid. He had violent tendencies and ruined her childhood.
Someone even said that Kevin was surveilling their home.
People like Kevin start small. They live in their pretend world and begin to execute fantasies. Ted Bundy, who I made mention of above, would pretend to be law enforcement to gain the trust of his victims before murdering them. I’m not saying Kevin had those plans but the fruity wife, the blatant lies he believed, the equipment he collected, and the aggressiveness of his encounters with the woman who turned him in, speak to a way deeper psychological problem than just badge chasing.
I’m just glad that people know his face now. Amanda may have saved someone’s life by following her gut.
