Should there be punishment for police officers who #takeaknee

Two police officers were shown kneeling with a community activist to show their support for the recent protests against the national anthem by NFL athletes. It's the post you see below:
Capitol Fax talks about the reprimand those police officers face although there is some uncertainty about whatever regulation these offices broke that prompted the reprimand. The actual portion of the code refers to partisan politcal campaign or activity. Now clearly this is a political statement being made as it had been since the take the knee protest started with free agent NFL quarterback Colin Capernick. The question is were these officers wrong for doing it in uniform or on duty?
