Don't wear masks

Bad guys wear masks.  Cops shouldn't.

What good are the masks?  No eye pro or ear pro.  Just ID pro.  Are you ashamed of your job?  You clearly aren't cold.  

You know that eye protection probably masks your identity enough, anyway, regardless, right?  If you are worried about the bad guys recognizing you.

"Already a couple of the faithful have sent in checks for a foundation memorial to the innocents who perished at the hands of the ninja at Waco ... I have been criticized by referring to our federal masked men as 'ninja' ... Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view." - - Jeff Cooper

Bob beat me to it. I was going to find and use the same quote.

European cops began that in the 80s when terrorist groups would use news photos to ID cops and ambush them later. In America, the only time I've seen locals use hoods was when undercover officers were involved in operations.
