“Badges? We don’t need no stinkin‘ badges…”
Videos of cops threatening to kill people (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/20/ferguson-cop-i-will-kill-you_n_5695748.html ) paired with night after night of teargas makes the country punchy.
Some Stupid Questions related to a small facet of the Ferguson Circus.
- Name tags should be part of the uniform, right?
- If you are out of uniform are you still legit?
- If you cannot or will not fully identify yourself as a cop are you a legit cop?
- Without a badge or a way to identify someone what proof is there that the person is who they say they are?
- If a cop without ID assaults a citizen, does that citizen have a right to fight back?
- A cop without an ID making arrests can that be considered criminal harassment?
- Every few years some criminals decide to scam people into thinking they are cops – what defense do citizens have against cops without identity?
- If we need picture id to vote shouldn’t we require proper id from a person who is insisting on patting us down?
