Milwaukee Officers Replace Name Tags for Occupy Milwaukee Protest

I’ve been in Wisconsin the last few days and decided to go to the first day of Occupy Milwaukee – video coming later. Shortly after arriving I started to realize that almost every single officer had their name tag replaced with one letter and numbers – example A10. I decided to ask why. Most wouldn’t even talk to me but one said it would make identifying officers easier. Really? How is removing their name easier?

I believe this is a tactic to keep officers from having their public/personal information posted after violating people’s rights. What do you think?
