More Kafkaesque Goings on

Recently, Matt noted a Kafkaesque situation down at Guantanamo (though perhaps it's more of a Catch-22 that typifies the military/government/bureacracies). Well, here's a situation that appears Kafkaesque at first glance.

James Taranto has a schtick wherein he gives a different reading of the day's headlines. Normally, they're good for a chuckle. Anyways, this headline particularly caught my eye: "Central Fla. Officer Charged With Posing As Officer"

The actual story appears to be that officer Hill is indeed a law enforcement officer, but was pretending to be a state attorney investigator. However there appears to be no specific law on the books for impersonating a state attorney investigator, just with impersonating a law enforcement officer.

Thus "[law enforcement officer] Hill is charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and extortion."

I believe he is now a prisoner impersonating a prisoner.
