Riot Police (PTU) intentionally wears warrant card badge backwards
On 29th February, the 6-month-anniversary of the 831 incident, rounds after rounds of tear gas as well as pepper spray were fired in Prince Edward amid the many clashes between the protesters and police officers. An officer on duty was seen by reporters to intentionally turn over his warrant card, which, as covered, could not be read.
