The taser single handled saved the show COPS. They should have just a "taser" special.
Pretty sure they've had a few taser special episodes actually.
I watch this show every Saturday night...
I love that one were an old guy is under a bridge(in a green van) with a hooker, The officer(Dustin) asks the guy "Does you wife know were you at?" that on always make me lol.
Those episodes are subtitled "Tazed and Confused".
They've had at least three of them, maybe four or more.
And what a case for the effectiveness of tazers those episodes are!!
The suspect will be arrogant and cursing and swearing and resisting and fighting and then "ZAP tick-tick-tick-tick...." And the suspect is a cowering glob of jelly on the ground saying, "I'm sorry officer, I'm sorry! I'll cooperate! I won't resist! I'm sorry! Please don't do that again!"
I love the show, but I wish there was a way to find out how things turned out.
Were these people convicted of anything? Did the person who was beaten/shot/stabbed recover? Did the stupid woman let her boyfriend/husband back in the house after he got released from jail? (There was one show where this sweet little girl asked the female cop if she could go home with her. She knew her mom would take him back even if he was beating her and taking all their money for drugs.)
And I remember one where the perp got cuffed pretty quietly, but when he was put in the car he started bashing his head against the partition. Then they had to drag him out and hogtie him for his own safety. I wondered if this jerk tried to claim police brutality later. (Of course his lawyer would have taken one look at the tape and said, "Shut up, you're taking the plea bargain.")
Does anyone know if there is a place to find out?
Bad guy, tazed for the 4th time for struggling with officers: "AUUUUUUGGGGHHHHH!!!! Stop doing that, it HURTS!!!"
I understand police officers have often expressed the same sentiment especially when they are new. They bust somebody and never know the final outcome. They break up a domestic fight and never know what happened.
They just go to the scene, do what they have to, fill out the paper work and move on to the new case. Sometimes they have to appear in court but probably not very often.
I doubt the show chops the story off for that reason, but it just happens to work out that way. It gives a little more appreciation for their job.
I only saw a follow-up one time. It was with a suicidal teen with a drug situation. He was not arrested for whatever reason (I can't remember). After the segment they put a graphic stating that that teen did in fact commit suicide shortly thereafter. Sad
My favorite is the "Ho Ho Ho" Christmas special
I like to watch shows from Houston or Dallas and try to spot where they are in the city.
I work for a PD outside of Boston and several episodes were taped here in the 90's. One of the episodes included an arestee being shot on camera. Still the only taped shoting on Cops. Before my time on the Dept. but the guys all enjoyed them tagging along and would like to have them return.
They've been doing a few shoots in Lowell this year (I have to assume they've been filmed in the last year or so)
Not quite as impressive as when they were in Boston, I still see those in the repeats, but I was surprised to see the location tag as "Lowell" this year
I prefer E-Force .
You got your wrongdoers, you got your LEOs -- and sometimes -- you got hurricanes. And gators.
My nephew's wife's brother (kind of far removed, I know) is a camera man for COPS.
According to my nephew's wife, her brother really loves his job! Sounds to me like it would be a blast!
He works mostly in Florida. I've noticed that over the past 4 or 5 seasons a high percentage of the segments are from various parts of Florida.
I don't watch Cops. Haven't in years. However, I was flipping the other week and saw the one from "Lowell". I, of course, had to stop and gawk because it was my neck of the woods.
I loved episode this week when they busted a guy for stealing copper wire. The perp was wearing a C.O.P.S. t-shirt.
I've been watching a lot more COPS since the strike. I wonder if their ratings have gone up.
Loved the first episode on Saturday where the cop was chasing a guy off-road, got stuck, and started a brush fire that destroyed his cruiser.
