Title 18 (U.S.C.), Chapter 33, §704 titled “Military medals or decorations” states:
- (a) In General.--Whoever knowingly wears, manufactures, or sells any decoration or medal authorized by Congress for the armed forces of the United States, or any of the service medals or badges awarded to the members of such forces, or the ribbon, button, or rosette of any such badge, decoration or medal, or any colorable imitation thereof, except when authorized under regulations made pursuant to law, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
Kalvin Korff has definitely stolen valor and misrepresented himself as some sort of military or paramilitary officer, as exemplified by his infamous SAPSTOE uniform portrait where he wears a number of fake, phony and fraudulently obtained badges and insignia. He has openly worn bars of a US Army Captain's rank and used images of himself festooned with these rank insignia to pull a con job on others for his own personal gain. He has never worked in the area of law enforcement, has never been a recruit in any military organization, and has no legitimate need to wear such insignia.
Obviously he is using these rank insignia to deceive consumers into listening to his confidence pitches. And possibly worse: Most predators who have been known to carry false or fraudulent law enforcement & military badges have used them to coerce their victims and create enough confusion for the victim/target to lower their defenses. All Ted Bundy needed was half a second to slap a pair of handcuffs on the young ladies he preyed upon -- once they were in restraints they were powerless.
Come to think of it, isn't "slapping the cuffs on them myself" a phrase that Kalvin K. Korff has used himself in the past? What good is a fake Interpol badge without a pair of handcuffs to go with it? He could then prey upon target/victims throughout Prague and all of Europe for that matter ... Isn't he often bragging about engaging in extended and unexplained journeys throughout the EU? Who knows what he's REALLY doing out there?
And who knows why he really relocated to Prague? Is there something more than just a lawsuit courtesy of Jim Dilettoso awaiting Kalvin K. Korff back in the USA? Maybe something involving impersonation of a police or military officer? He certainly holds the offices of law enforcement and the military in the most dire of contempt. People don't usually carry fake law enforcement badges or wear improperly obtained military insignia to aid them in collecting for the Red Cross. They usually wear or carry them as a way to help them prey upon their victims.
