    I watched an old COPS episode (1996) from Kansas City last night.

    Guy picked up a street walker (she was fugly) and the cop caught them in the act.

    The problem was the man was on a "check run" for his wife's business. It was a very big deal so the cop let him call his wife on the cell phone to tell her she would have to make the "check run". Why? "Honey. Uhh, maybe I shouldn't call you that. I've just been arrested...... ah, prostitution." He puts the phone down and says to the Cop "she hung up".

    God, I felt a little (just a little) sorry for the guy. The prostitute was really ugly and he admitted to the cop he wasn't using a condom.

    I just kept thinking how ugly this guy's wife must be.

    After listening to the perps on Cops you might almost think there's an instructional course offered named "So You Want To Be On Cops"...

    Instructor: Repeat after me "What'd I do?"
    Class in unison: "What'd I do?"
    Instructor: Very good, now "That's not my crack pipe."

    Gotta luv COPS.
    I'd forgotten about it (not a big TV watcher). Thanks to 'youse guys' I'll look for it.
    Ever notice how many perps aren't wearing shirts?

    Too rough on the camera guy who has to run behind the foot chases lugging heavy equipment?

    Yes, but in summer time.

    I've been a fan of Cops, and probably seen every episode, with re-runs to re-catch things, and all, since its first season.

    I can't remember any episode segment with snow on the ground.

    Requirement #1 for being on COPS is not to be wearing a shirt. If it gets too cold, you can't do that. :D

    Yes. It might have been a minivan or SUV. But what struck me is the guy seemed about 60, fairly bright, clean-cut, and well dressed. And his wife apparently had her own business. So, this guy decides to pick up a crack whore with missing teeth and scabs on her arm, and not for a BJ. He was in there and not even using a condom. Seriously, I was shocked. I can't imagine. Then, he apparently even signed the release.

    I remember that episode fairly well.

    I concur with your description except for the assessment that the guy seemed "fairly bright".

    Any 60 year old man who apparently lives with reasonable financial comfort, whose wife owns a business (perhaps in partnership with him), who picks up a toothless crack-whore with obvious needle tracks all over her arms (smack-whore?), while conducting business for his wife, and then proceeds to have unprotected sex with her...

    Not "fairly bright"!

    I'd say, "no brains at all"!

    But, it's part of what makes "Cops" so great!

    Good point. Makes note to self. Do not...
    Who says wasting time on the internet isn't educational?

    If you met this guy in normal circumstances, I don't think you'd peg him as being stupid enough to pick up a $20 street walker. There's the shock value. Thus yes, the guy seemed fairly bright.

    There was a great new episode on tonight. It was titled "What a Sap Special Edition." It was taking their usual stupid criminals to a whole new level.

    It was a classic tonight.

    A great line to me was when the chick yelled "I love you Keith" right after telling the cop she had no idea who the guy was they just arrested. lol
