    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    No.

    You have to dress up like a cop intending to trick people into thinking you actually are one.

    A Halloween costume? Not likely. Not even a good one should get you in trouble.

    Just don't go out and try to direct traffic or anything like that.

    Goon is right.

    In most states "impersonating a police officer" means that you have identified yourself as an LEO to somebody or have tried to exert police authority. You could do that in your street clothes.

    I'm rocking out a suicide bomber this year.

    Traditional arab white manjamies (a la sheik flavor) with roadflares and an alarmclock cuircut board taped to me.
    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it
