Twitter troll used pictures of Brown Deer police chief

BROWN DEER - Creating a fake profile on Twitter is nothing new. But imagine the chutzpah required to create a fake profile using pictures of a police chief. That's exactly what happened to Brown Deer Police Chief Michael Kass, who was recently alerted by one of his 900-plus Twitter followers that his image was being used by a Twitter user with the alias "Officer Chet Rodney." "It was a little odd." In addition to using one of Kass' pictures as his profile picture, "Officer Chet" dug deeper into Kass' Twitter timeline to steal at least two other pictures of Kass. This behavior, known as trolling, is also not a new phenomenon on Twitter. But it was upsetting for Kass to see those opinions associated with his image and with law enforcement in general. Kass reported the user to Twitter twice. With multiple users reporting "Officer Chet," Twitter suspended the account. He said he doesn't intend to get a search warrant for Twitter's records because no crime occurred.
