Two Oakland police officers have been disciplined for violating policy during Occupy protests.
One of the officers covered his nameplate with black tape and the other removed the tape with a videographer questioned him about it.
The Los Angeles Times ( http://lat.ms/AwewTg) reports officer John Hargraves and Lt. Clifford Wong were punished after a police internal affairs investigation. The lieutenant failed to report Hargraves' conduct.
State law and Oakland policy require uniformed officers to wear a badge or nameplate.
Interim police Chief Howard Jordan won't disclose details about the punishment.
The officers were outside police headquarters when they were approached by a videographer during a November demonstration by Occupy Oakland demonstrations.
The cameraman complained to Wong that Hargraves covered his nameplate. The lieutenant then stripped off the tape.
