Right... they never showed it, but they mentioned it as they cut to the COPS logo before the C-break.

I think they said that he ditched the truck and tried to swim across a river or culvert fully clothed. They nabbed him on the other side with the keys to the truck in his pocket.

I saw that one too. I was LMAO while they showed that train slowly coming down the track. Heading right for his car, but switched tracks before it got close. Even better was the comments from the other cops while they were trying to free the car.

I think the difference is that most of the pullovers that they show on Cops involve persons suspected of criminal activity other than simple traffic violations. In such a situation, the cop is concerned that the person may be trying to destroy drug evidence, or worse, pull out a gun.

If the only thing a person is suspected of is speeding, the cop is considerably less worried that he's going to come up with a gun when he goes into the glovebox for his registration. (But, for his own safety, should probably still watch vigilantly as the driver does so!)

They didn't show it, but I do hope that the cop kept his word to the guy.

Bingo. Totally different mindset, I bet. The police on Speeders are out doing traffic enforcement as their primary activity. The police on Cops are "on patrol."

I watched it once and only because a totally unrelated ARWL caught a keyword in the description. The whole show looked too set up and scripted. But most just dumb. They even had the passengers out on the side of the road playing around. The only redeeming thing about the show is that they talk to the drivers. Cops won't do that (not that I blame them).

From what I've gathered by talking with police is that a normal traffic stop is one of the most dangerous things they can do. Especially at night. They never know what the driver will do. They might be walking right into a hail of gunfire. You might notice some of them touching the trunk of the car before they approach the driver. This is so that their fingerprints are on the car and can place that car at the scene if the officer is killed or injured. Some departments have made it standard procedure.

Well i didnt want to seem that paranoid but that thought was on my mind. I'd imagine a 'known' enemy (ie just robbed someone) would produce a certain level of readiness vs 'regular' traffic stop.

on cops they do continually say domestics are the worst.

regarding the Speeders dancing on the side of the road, it IS funny sometimes. I love one ep the cop say 2x stay in the car but then the producer must have said come out and show me your picnic basket or whatever.

JODIE Foster has given us many amazing performances over the years - but one you won't be seeing is her emotionally charged confrontation with officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department after they nailed her for speeding.

A crew from truTV's reality show "Speeders" - which rides with highway patrols to film motorists getting caught speeding and then trying to talk their way out of a ticket - was with the Beverly Hills cops last weekend when they clocked a Prius allegedly going 54 mph in a 35 mph zone.

What was the deal with blurring the print on the guy's t-shirt (the guy riding the bike)? Might have been a company's name or an organization they don't want to give a bad name to but I sure hope that hasn't become SOP for COPS.

Those two guys hiding in the brush after bailing for the car were well hidden, it seemed. I thought they were going to have to bring out the dogs to find the last guy.

From what I've seen, blurring out trademarked or copyrighted stuff on T-Shirts is SOP on COPS.

Occasionally, you see an exception, but I assume the exceptions are companies that they have some standard boilerplate agreement with ahead of time. (For example, they may have a standard agreement in place for clothing brands, Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, FUBU, etc.)

so what changed over the years that all of a sudden then even have to blur out names on popular buildings etc on most shows? The funniest one i see is the Capitol records building. Anyone who watches a lot of tv knows that building.

It was fun for me because first part was in Sac and last was in Houston.

When he said where they were in sac I knew exactly where they were.

I had to replay that a few times. The guy just scampered through the window head first. That was crazy. It was like there was nothing there.

I had to replay the crash a couple of times to see how he flipped.
I didn't think a curb alone would do that.
Turned out the cause was he ran up the guy wire on the telephone pole.

Probably because the officer threatened to taze him if he didn't stop resisting.

Loved the Minneapolis one later in that same episode. That guy fell over like a freshly sawn tree.

The second episode was a repeat that I never saw before. That Minneapolis pursuit was amazing with that Explorer flipping over multiple times after being PIT'ed by the State Trooper. I'm surprised the officers decided to flip the truck back over and pull the guy out even though he was unconscious and badly hurt, rather than wait for the fire department.. Not that I feel sorry for the suspect, but if pulling him out improperly like they did resulted in permanent injuries such as paralysis, he'll now be a rich man

And did anybody notice his truck had a FOR SALE sign in the window? "For sale, 1994 Ford Explorer, all available options, no rust, low miles. Slight body damage due to being featured on internationally-famous TV show."
