    My bad.

    "Boom" mic was on my brain from all the preceeding posts. My post should have read ...a mic mounted to the camera...

    Editing to fix now...

    I don't think the camera ever touched the ground. There was constant movement the whole time.
    I think the cameraman took the camera off his shoulder and held on to it with one hand while using his free arm to try and help the officer restrain the suspect. As soon as he did that, there were 2 or 3 other guys coming in so he quickly got reset to get the shot.
    It happened so fast, there wasn't time to hand the camera to someone else.

    There was definitely a cut in there. I'm almost certain now that the camera guy handed off to the sound guy.

    One of my favorites was the cop that was chasing the guy then got stuck on the railroad tracks. I laugh out loud every time I see it. The way he panics when he hears the trains. Then the humility when he finds out his sarge knows about it. My second favorite is when the cop thinks the old lady's house is on fire so he breaks out several of those small window panes. His explanation to his higher ups is hilarious to me.

    Unless they have the camera rolling the entire time they are in the car, I doubt it. The article says the car was not on a call; just routine patrol

    A similar such episode already exists from when they rode with Denver PD back in the early 90's.

    Two patrol cars, one with a COPS crew in the back seat, were rolling with lights and sirens when they collided at an intersection in a residential neighborhood. The camera was rolling and looking through the windshield, and you can see the other patrol car out of the corner of the screen just before impact.

    The crew only had minor injuries and were able to get out of the car without any assistance from the fire department. They filmed the aftermath of the crash, which was two totalled Denver PD patrol cars and one totalled front porch.

    At least two of the four officers involved did have to go to the hospital however :(

    Jaywalking? REALLY??

    That cop must have been on patrol for a couple of hours without a call. :D

    I'm glad I only watched a few episodes years ago when it first came on the air, since it still sounds like a very stupid show. I can see none of you have been tasered or arrested unjustly or you wouldn't bother with this show.
    No Bashing, Just my opinion.

    The cop may have been bored to get him for jaywalking but it was really dumb to try and run. He's lucky the cop didn't taze him or worse.

    Stupid? I think not. I use it as a learning tool.
    How NOT to get tazed when confronted by the police. :p

    So, what happened in your past that gave you this ''opinion''?

    Is this like saying "no offense, but..." then proceeding to say something almost certainly intended to offend?

    There isn't anything offensive in what I said.

    No, but you did say "no bashing" after bashing the show and the people who enjoy it.

    It sure appeared that way. It seemed to me the jaywalker may have been a bit slow (mentally). I think the cop should have talked with the parents a bit instead of just telling them to go away.
