However there is more to the argument than simply not taking of names.
The press could have made his life very bad, if the version i hold to had come out.
But my argument is: how could he be certain that he was being told the truth about being wanted by another policeman? Wouldn't he still be expected to take some basic details, or even ask the men to accompany him when he responds?
Anyway, as I said, I look forward to reading your final analysis on this issue.
