What harm did it cause when CCW #1 told the thief that he was a police officer? The question is not whether or not, and I know that it is not, a crime to do so.

It most certainly is a crime to tell someone that you are a cop, especially and specifically when you are ACTING like a cop.

The "harm" is that it is a crime. There doesn't need to be more than that. It shows poor judgement and a willingness to commit illegal acts when it benefits self. Neither of those things should be combined with carrying a gun.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
