The officers who chose not to wear name tags got hardly any reprimand. I believe it was a day without pay or something akin to that. In exchange for this they got to abuse protesting private and foreign citizens.
So they get a very minimum punishment, and then the SIU that probed abuse allegations says they can not charge any officers because they were not wearing name tags.
Does this seem premeditated to anyone? I can't just go an beat someone up for the hell of it; why can the cops? Police, not all of them, have the 'I am the law and therefore above it' attitude. Is it really necessary to perpetuate this for them?
