Deputies Caught Dumping Name Tags (YouTube)
Sunday August 25th, 2013
You know a police force is bent when its officers start dumping their name tags. That's what happened before an illegal traffic stop in Malheur County, Oregon. The Malheur County Sheriff's Department has a sweetheart deal with the infamously cruel Big Loop Rodeo, in the remote and dying town of Jordan Valley, Oregon.

The traffic stop was illegal, but prompted by the Big Loop Rodeo board, because the board members are afraid of being exposed for committing terrible animal abuse. As their own police dash camera proves, the deputies knew what they were doing was wrong, but they did it anyway. They apparently believed that hiding their identities would help protect their misdeeds.
Apparently these guys need to watch more John Wayne movies. The crooks are supposed to wear scarves over their faces, not take off their badges.
