Anonymous cop calls for the end of anonymity on the internet

Somehow, I suspect this police officer has personal experience with anonymous criticism of his job performance:
An anonymous police officer writing for Salt Lake City's penned a bizarre editorial calling for the end of anonymity on the internet. "Officer Anonymous" says everyone who wants to post comments online should be forced to register their email with the government in person at the DMV and be cataloged in a national database. The officer says this will end the problem of "trolling" and people "hiding behind the Internet."

It will also end the problem of "free speech", especially free speech criticizing politicians and police officers.
