"officer was also asking for id's for others", means he was treating all folks the same in my book

First of all I hope your husband knows you guys were going to get your 15 minutes of fame on the Internet because of this letter to VPD.
Now, getting back to your question. I am not a LEO but my gut tells me that this officer was within the parameters of his duties when asking folks for ID and the like. It is a good thing that you did not take this up with the officer at the time. Wait, you were not there.
Any of 100 plus scenarios could have been in play right before your husband rolled up on that location. In addition to what the other readers have said there could have been an active BOLO for a male or a car fitting description of folks at that location or a crime could have taken place and they were working the crowd.
Stop back and let us know if your hear from VPD.
