Wanted: Pics/video of APD cops without nametags

APD officers are supposed to wear nametags which clearly identify them. But often they don’t, especially when wearing non-standard uniforms. If police won’t identify themselves, how can we hold them accountable?

Atlanta police pulled over Jeremy Hogens. When he pulled into the driveway at 75 Mayson Ave NE, officers ran up to the car and smashed out the driver's side window, shouting "Show me your fucking hands!". Police hit Hogens in the head with a metal baton and held him face down on the glass-covered pavement.

To justify the attack, police claimed that Hogens had tried to crush officers against a fence with his car, and charged him with aggravated assault on a police officer. Hogens faced a minimum of 5 years prison time.
