Best Answer

This varies from state to state, and largely depends on the circumstances. Some state supreme courts have ruled that law enforcement officers can be the victim of disorderly conduct, if the conduct in question was directed at the officer.

Why do the police ask a crime victim to identify if that is the guy?

A victim is not just a victim. The victim will be the State's number 1 witness, as the victim of the crime. Police need an eyewitness identification of whether a person is or is not the one who committed the crime. However, usually this question is NOT spoken. Instead, the police use a lineup of innocent persons along with one suspect.

Can a police officer be charge with battery on another police officer?

Yes, they can be charged with assault or battery if the victim is another police officer. If the bad cop is a big bully and no one likes him/her, then it is more likely they will be charged or fired. Often, however, cops don't file charges against other cops and will try to work it out in other ways. Sometimes the charges will only be internal, that is made by one cop against another and the matter is handled within the department.
