How to Spot an Undercover Cop

I'm not saying these fellows are plainclothes policemen. I'm just saying that at every protest I've been to so far there are several UNUSUALLY BURLY MEN IN SPORTY CLOTHING, standing OFF TO THE SIDE AWAY FROM THE SCENE, sometimes CHATTING AMIABLY WITH UNIFORMED COPS, or talking on TINY WALKIE-TALKIES. They wear their badges on chains underneath their shirts. If they stop you to ask for your ID, you can also ask for theirs.
