Except that the lines weren't exactly the same in the two movies.

TSM had this: Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges.

BS had only this: Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.

I have seen, and I am SURE others have too, CAP LE badges and creds. I can remember, plain as day, a SM showing me a CAP badge in 1992/1993 at an airshow in Western PA.
100% sure they were self-ordered/self-produced but some unsavory characters out there had them and used them for whatever purpose.
Same as the blue/red lights that popped up on CAP vehicles every now and then back in the day.
Unprofessional... and a bit nutty.

I found this online:



Did CAP actually have a police force at one point, or was that just a custom made novelty?

Being under the Office of Civilian Defense, I could imagine how CAP resources might have been used for air raid preparedness and blackout enforcement, but those duties should have fallen on the actual OCD Aux Police Corp and Air Raid Wardens.

So did CAP Police exist, and if they did, what was their purpose?

Okay, embarrassed to admit this, but "Troop Beverley Hills"  "We don't need no stinking badges"
