Oakland Police Officer Asked Why His Name Badge is Covered
 Part of channel(s): Occupy Wall Street (current event)

This how to properly engage with police when they do suspicious things.

People riding by on bikes notice a cop is hiding his name and has no badge number so they decided to ask him why. He did not answer. They asked a ranking officer is that policy? The LT. quickly went about fixing his attitude.

This is a common practice among cops at occupy's around the U.S. That way he/she cannot be named or referenced if the officer participates in any police misconduct. It's in most police departments policies that all officers in uniform must show some form of ID.

You know he's only going to cover it up again after the weary citizens leave.

THANKS to OPD LT C. WONG for stepping up and holding the officer accountable on camera.
