Of course, it should. This guy’s a grade-A wackadoo who was obviously getting his fascist authority boner on by playing pretend cop with a vulnerable and frightened young black man. His intent was absolutely to impersonate a police officer. That should be against the law, but it may not be in this jurisdiction. Both he and the victim understand the information he was conveying here, which was that he was a police officer. I don’t think anyone can dispute that. I’m sure the prosecutors know better than me whether that could result in a conviction, but in a just society that should be impersonating a police officer.
Doubtful the trial will take that long, but there is nothing wrong with “time served” counting as towards your jail time. In fact, this is why a lot of Liberal states are starting to eliminate financial bail (the only risk to society or flee are considered) because often innocent people end up in jail awaiting their trial or take a plea to a lesser charge just to avoid the pre-trial jail time.
