COPS: Does TV get any better than this?

I just love this show. I always have a few episodes recorded on TiVo for a time killer. Just love seeing trash busted.

I only like it when they have chick fights, guns, or car chases.
When they do the domestic abuse stories, I don't find that entertaining.

My favorite of the guilty pleasures!

No matter how down you can get, just sit and watch an episode of COPS and you realize how decent your life is.

I enjoy watching and listening to the perps make up story after unbelievable story as they try and lie their way out of trouble. Some of them are just hilarious.

nothing beats watching them get out of the drivers seat of a car, on camera, and then proclaim to the arresting officer "no officer, you're mistaken, I was not driving the car"

those are the priceless COPS moments.

God I hope TV gets better than this. If COPS is the best TV has to offer I think I will poke my eyes out and throw out my TV, maybe not in that order.

I like watching when I just happen across it. When I had a Season Pass, I never watched it, though.

How come the Cops crew didn't tag along on the Michael Vick raid?
Come on Fox, you're supposed to be covering all things NFL.

I love it when the suspect pulls the baggie of drugs out of their pocket or the car, tosses it into the weeds, 5 cops see them do it, the COPS videographer caught it on tape (which they get a copy of for court), that means the millions of us viewers saw it and then:

One of the 5 cops who saw it asks: "What was that you just tossed into the weeds?"

"Toss? I didn't toss anything!"

The entire TV audience is thinking: You don't see that camera crew taping everything you are doing, moron?!

Hilarious!!

One of my favorite shows.

My favorite was when these two morons in Vegas stole a hard plastic flamingo from the hotel right in front of a passing cop. Classic.

I think I remember that one. Didn't they grab it up, haul it their car, discover the car was too small so they then threw the flamingo behind some bushes or a fence.

The flamingo was like 3 times the size of their rice rod.

"But we really didn't steal it."

Yep. They ended up paying $1500 in damages because they chipped it when they threw it in the bushes.

The taser single handled saved the show COPS. They should have just a "taser" special.

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?

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
