3. If I was Chief of Police, and caught one of my officers doing this,

Said officer would not be an officer anymore.

42. For all we know, he's not even a law enforcement officer, but merely

 

a (racist) goon with a gun who likes to dress up a la The Village People.

4. Horrible, arrogant behavior. You would think this is illegal, but of course no law applies to them.

And this, apparently, is what our society wants.

5. If they cannot show their name and badge number

 

then they are not the police. They're impersonating a police officer. You see, even I can wear a police uniform, but that doesn't make me a police officer. If they don't show who they are, then they aren't police officers and no one is obliged to heed their orders. And if anyone gets shot, then there is no recourse of that murderer.

8. How would they like it if their nurse or doctor or

Dental assistant covered their name tags along with their professional designation? They wouldn't know if a phlebotomist was giving them instructions on wound care or or an orderlie was about to give them anesthesia.

A FUCKING MOHAWK!!!!



Is that even a name tag, or is it some sort of award ribbon for best fucking Mohawk?



If it's the former, one would have to be pretty damn anal to cut, trim and place
the tape on so perfectly even and aligned.

Ohhh... did I forget to mention his fucking Mohawk?

In case you overlooked it and wanted to fix it. Otherwise, never mind. I'd want to know. Hope this wasn't rude. No offense intended.

21. So...if they're mourning the death of a cop, they apply black tape to their badges,

but when they're hiding their own guilt, they cover the name on the badge.

Interesting.

23. There is neither accountability nor law in America

We cannot exist with two sets of laws and three classes of citizens--the oligarchs exempt from laws, their mercenaries who are also exempt, and the rest of us who can be shot on site. The United States has become a lawless nation and the laughingstock of the world.

But they shouldn't be allowed to hide their identity from the public.

29. How do you know he is really Police?

Uniforms can be faked. What does the Standard Operating Procedures say about Police identifying themselves in uniform? So the public must submit to anyone in a uniform which could be copied or simply made up. There are so many departments in St. Louis how do you know one from the other they do not have a standard uniform? Is this a wannabe cop impersonator? Anyone ever hear of the St. Valentines Day Massacre?

Other than in filing bogus reports there are no statutes in MO requiring Officer identification.

35. My simple response would be

 

"Officer, if you don't have to identify yourself, then neither do I."

I live in St. Louis City and I would NOT put up with that nonsense. They are NOT above the citizens they serve.

38. If he is not in full uniform, including a hat,

then you have reasonable suspicion that he is not a real cop. Especially with a taped over name badge. Any ticket this goon writes will be thrown out in court.

However, if you try to take his picture he will shoot you 12 times, maybe 13.

39. Well, I'd probably cover up my name tag if my name was

"Assmunch" too.

Fire him, then arrest him.
