I did a tiny bit of digging earlier in the thread to see if he had any MABS worthy dirt to dig up, but I'm just not seeing where he's making false claims about his rank. I just don't see what's there to investigate. Sure, he's full of ****, but the **** he's spewing isn't false claims about his martial arts rank, it's more stupid opinions and homophobic rants.

Nothing wrong with starting a MABS thread on a character. We have threads that go nowhere, threads that find the guy legit and our favorites that end up with a ton of facts proving the guy is full of ****.

Well he's definitely full of ****...

The man is an idiot, but he's not lying about being a cop.
Chicago Tribune October 18, 2009: Northwestern University police officer alleges discrimination, files federal complaint by Dan Simmons (bit.ly/18DHmmF)
A Chinese-American police officer at Northwestern University has filed a racial discrimination claim against the university for what he described as a pattern of verbal harassment by white peers and supervisors.
Freddie Lee, 27, who was hired by the department in September 2005, has been on paid administrative leave since Sept. 10, with orders to stay off campus. He filed his claim last month with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
University Police Officers have the same full law enforcement powers and responsibilities under state law as municipal police officers and county sheriffs. They must complete a state approved police academy and firearms training.

I live in IL and have graduate degrees from IL colleges. I have known some campus cops.
From what I understand, the Illinois State Police academy is highly selective and is a 6 month bootcamp type experience. Local police training academies are not nearly as selective or as long. Being an Illinois State Police officer is highly prestigious. Being a local cop just means the local department hired you on and you were sent to a local community college training program. That program has to be approved by the State Police, but it is not even close to the same thing as the State Police Academy. Because most cities around this part of the country run on nepotism and cronyism, you get some real winners sprinkled in there.
If Lee wanted to be honest he would have said I served a week as a campus cop at Northwestern College and was immediately terminated. Instead he tries to make himself sound like an ISP officer.
If he wanted to be honest he would call himself a beginning student of Kung Fu and not Sifu.
If he wanted to be honest he wouldn't have said he was the head of United Fighters.
He would have said that he and a couple of equally inexperienced, beginning martial arts students used to play around in their free time.
If he has any sense, he would have joined the Kung Fu group that was operating at Purdue at the time. Purdue has the largest enrollment of international students in the entire country. There is a HUGE Chinese community there and the instruction is top notch. I lived across the street from a department store that had gone out of business. Every morning there were anywhere from 20-50 people doing Tai Chi in the parking lot with swords and the whole regalia. Most of these were Chinese nationals.
Purdue and the surrounding community has very long and solid history of Chinese martial arts. If he was a Kung Fu man, what the hell was he doing jerking around with two other inexperienced students? What a blown opportunity.

Sorry for the necro but couldn't help myself. Freddie Grapples!
For someone who hates grappling and thinks it's useless (and gay) why do all his sparring matches he ends up grappling?! You think by now he'd learn that you need atleast some basic training or else it just ends up looking pathetic. He would get mauled by a white belt with a few stripes.

Looks like Illinois might have a little more on the ball for LEO training standards.
Most states have POST (police officer standards and training) agencies. Illinois seems to have one as well. Not all may be "boot camp" style training as at the State Police, but all appear to have to meet certain requirements.
Not to forgive Freddy, though...Falling for Judo since 1980

Freddie has the body mechanics of a guy that likes to get kneed in the face, thrown and mounted.
