The plight of the unarmed perp.

An armed protester was shot by police during this week's peaceful anniversary protests in Ferguson, Missouri.  It wasn't his fault, though:
"It was a poor decision to use plain clothes officers in a protest setting because it made it difficult for people to identify police officers, which is essential to the safety of community members,” said Kayla Reed, a field organizer with the Organization of Black Struggle.

First, the police aren't supposed to use riot gear when dealing with openly threatened violence, because it is intimidating. Now they can't wear plainclothes.

No plainclothes because target identification is everything.
