    OMG, what a cry baby. He's man enough to commit armed robbery but when he gets busted he cry like a 12 year old who needs his mommy.

    I was amused by the Louisiana episode, with the guy in the new Chevy truck who got busted for solicitation. How could he not know that prostitute was a DUDE? :eek:

    And no, hookers don't take debit/credit cards, nor will they let you go to the ATM afterward. They are strictly, umm, "pay before you pump" :D

    BTW the new opening sequence seems to be a mix of scenes I have seen before (like the deputy hugging the kid in the driveway) as well as stuff I've never seen before (the guy being Tased as he was running away).

    You don't think he knew? He knew, definitely... he probably went out looking for exactly what he got.

    How I think he didn't know is when the cop was admonishing him for agreeing to an act/payment amount when he didn't have enough money on him.

    Up to that point, the cop was referring to the prostitute as "her" even though he clearly has dealt with her him before. But once the cop found out the guy had agreed to a sex act worth $60 when he only had $20-some odd in his wallet, he told the john what the consequences were of doing that, and for the first time began referring to the prostitute as "him" and particularly pointed out "his" size compared to the john's.

    At that point, the john closed his eyes and slammed his head back into the seat in a "Oh Sh--!" moment. He wouldn't look at the officer anymore...the officer had to tell the john to look at him. I doubt that was over the fact that he could have been assaulted...it was over his realization that he was about to engage in a sex act with another man unknowingly, and unwillingly if he had realized it before.

    Prior to that revelation, the john didn't seem particularly embarrassed about being arrested on TV.

    I just rewatched the episode in question and noted the following:

    1. When the officer was questioning the john at the truck (shortly after handcuffing him) he slips and says "she" then immediately says "he" when referring to the prostitute. The john however constantly refers to the prostitute as "her" before and after the officer does this.

    2. When the officer again questions the john who is now seated in the back of the cruiser, and admonishes him about what happens when you don't have enough money to pay a prostitute for the act, when the officer says "especially a male prostitute of that size" is the point where the john closes his eyes, turns away from the officer, and leans back his head. That's why I think he didn't realize it before.

    I think that scene of the guy hugging the kid was in last seasons opening as well. Wasn't that the episode where the kids dad or uncle drove drunk?


    And that john had no clue that prostitue was a man. Didn't he say something like "What are you gonna do when she grabs your junk?" I would of been like "well first of all that isn't a she..."

    It floors me that the john didn't know the prostitute was a dude.

    In drag, *I'd* make a more attractive, and believable, woman than that. That's saying something.

    What an idiot! And, if he was that dumb, he was probably also actually dumb enough to think that a prostitute would let him go to an ATM afterward.

    I think the cop saved the john's life, Seriously.

    The last new episode featuring Boynton Beach FL PD was probably the best episode they've had in a long time, if ever.

    For those who didn't see it, they devoted the entire 30 minutes to the case of Dalia Dippolito, a 28 year old woman who had hired someone to kill her husband of just 6 months. I'm not sure how police found out about the plot (and that was not revealed in the episode) but police got her to meet with a supposed hit-man who was an undercover cop, and recorded her making the deal. They contacted the husband and set up crime scene tape for her to return to.

    I remember seeing video footage of her "acting" upon finding out about her husband's "death" but I didn't realize that it was shot by COPS crew members.

    One thing I'm curious about is why they blanked out her name whenever it was mentioned? The case got a bit of publicity when it happened, her face and her husband's face were shown without alteration, and she's already been convicted of solicitation for murder, for which she got 20 years.

    She was crazy! And cold-hearted. Very scary to think how things would've gone down if the Police weren't involved.

    One thing that was not previously revealed was that she had been stealing from him for quite some time...I think he said it was around $240k :eek: She had somehow convinced him to quit-claim the house over to her as well.

    I concur, the episode was just awesome.

    And she kept playing stupid up to the very end even when the detective told her they had video evidence.

    I'm guessing they bleeped the names out because of her pending appeal.

    I agree. That was the best episode of COPS in a LONG time! :up:

    After watching the actual footage of her making the deal with the undercover cop, what could possibly be the basis for her appeal? Entrapment?

    She'll have an awfully hard time convincing anyone she was entrapped. As one of the cops said, the undercover gave her several opportunities to back out free and clear, and she took none of them.
