Spot the Burning Man Narc

Caleb Pershan | August 30, 2013 | Story Travel

Burning Man, we all know, is for the pure of heart. But, if the rumors streaming out of Black Rock City this year are true, it's also for a platoon of plainclothes—or even funkyclothes—federal agents, who are allegedly infiltrating the experimental living carnival and busting people for drug possession and other horrible atrocities. Not even our tech titans will be safe. But how does one I.D. a Burning Man narc? To hone your spotting skills, we've culled Burning Man 2013 photos from Instagram. We can't confirm that any of these folks are truly narcs, but we're entitled to our suspicions. It's up to you to judge the true Burners from the Fuzz.
