My point is that this article tells people to not just trust that a person is a cop because they flash a badge. The other story has a police officer in plain clothes jumping out of a car and pulling a gun on a motorcyclist, without a badge immediately visible, and the motorcyclist is portrayed by the police as being in the wrong for not recognizing that he's a cop.
Don't you see the disconnect there?
