it actually is illegal. officers are required to wear their name tags for accountability purposes.
if a cashier can be penalized for being on the clock without a name tag, so can an officer. the biggest fucked up part about it is that you can’t even report it to their superiors because their superiors probably told them to remove their tags.
They are doing everything, everything, that they are not supposed to do. Purposefully breaking the very law they’re supposed to be upholding.
And the peacefully protesting citizens of Ferguson are being portrayed as the criminals, right? While they import outside agitators into Ferguson and call the lawful people of Ferguson animals, right?
