2 officers disciplined for Occupy Oakland actions

2 Oakland police officers have been disciplined for violating policy during Occupy protests By The Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' 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.
