          I understand where he's coming from. It's a combination of seeing a masked LEO, armed with an AR....out of uniform, to boot....stopping traffic. It's a sight we wished we'd never see in America.

          I also understand WHY he(the officer in question) is doing 'it'.

            It might help if Mike provided us with a link to the actual thread. I went over there, and could not find it - wasn't apparent anyway.

            Otherwise it could be anything.

              I guess it's mindset...........

              I see the LE angle; the guy may be routinely an undercover, but they need the extra manpower etc.

              I don't see the shock troops of the New World Order.

                    What you can barely see it the beginning of the word Police on the front of his black armor. It is in white lettering.
                    I have seen this guy from a different angle on Fox and it is clear that he is a cop.
                    So relax and have a cold one, it's ok.

                      What I found unpleasant about it was if you can't see the word police, which you can't from the side or back, he looks like a person up to no good. I think the mask makes it that way. Why does he need to wear a mask? Someone scared to death as many are up there, could think they were about to be shot.

                        From the angle of the photo, you can't see it at all, nor would you normally be able to. POLICE is usually on the front and back, which are not visible from the way the photo was taken.

                        However...if you look very closely at his chest, just above where the stock is resting, you can see a label of some sort. Again, you can't make out what it reads, but I'll bet it reads POLICE.

                        Plus, those two guys in the Ford van in the background don't look particularly panicked...they look more annoyed than anything.

                        As far as the mask...what makes this situation different from a SWAT situation, where entry teams are routinely masked? Yes it's for the protection against burns from use of flashbangs, but it's also for psychological effect. You see a bunch of masked, ninja-suited guys breaking down your door and pointing MP-5's at you, you'd be far less tempted to try anything stupid, unless you're suicidal.

                          Sig, I object to idea of police needing to wear masks. Roy Rogers never wore a mask!

                            What really sucks is that there's a suspect(s) out there picking off people, and he hasn't been caught yet.

                            What really sucks is that a Trooper investigating an accident never knew that he could have possibly been in the scope of the killer.

                            What really sucks is that there are seven people dead.

                            Now, why would someone care how a police officer is dressed when he is grouped with other uniformed officers conducting an armed investigation out on the highway. As stated in some of the posts, maybe he works undercover, or maybe he was off duty and decided to assist in the investigation and he wasn't able to put on a uniform. Sh1t I wouldn't care if he was in his underwear if he had the people in custody for these killings. But thats just my opinion and maybe my opinion really sucks.

                              Yeah it really sucks. No one said anything about what is happening there being great, just that I and many others object to masked police. If he were search my vehicle I would make sure he knew how I felt about his attire. I don;t think the killer is good, I don't hate police, I do understand why he's there, I know he may be undercover, I just don't like it. It doesn't promote good feelings toward police, and we have enough bad feelings don't you think?

                              Oh yeah, I refer to 'you' in the general sense, not you specifically so as not to offend any police on this forum who may be wearing a mask as they read this!

                              By the way, here's the link. It has a lot of the anti cop sentiment you may expect it to, just so you know.
