Unless they admit it, there's no way to prove it didn't happen, either.

Unfortunately, you're right. So even if the charges don't go anywhere, it'll always be on his record. Doesn't seem fair.

Some really compelling stuff tonight. The guy tripping on meth, the genius who decided to run not once but twice (the second time while in cuffs!), and the fake robbery (she didn't put all that much effort into it...did she really think they wouldn't watch the tapes or look in her car?) were all great.

The guy tweaking was really unpredictable, taking him to the ground quick was a good move. Too bad he didn't try to run, we would of had some taser action.

It's always a good laugh when some rocket scientist tries to run in cuffs.

On the Vegas Vice portions, is it just me, or did that female vice cop resemble Angie Dickinson (from some angles) during her Police Woman days?

Since this season began, there's a 2 second blip in the intro where they show the "Ho" with the long curly black hair -from the back only- in cuffs.

Since this season began, when that shot blips up, I've turned to my wife and said, "dude". (As in, "that's a guy in drag".)

Well, in this year's "Ho! Ho! Ho!" episode we get to see that person from the front and at length. "Not a dude!" I was genuinely surprised! And not only not a dude, but surprisingly -dare I even say- ... attractive ... for a teenage $20 whore.

Note: I'm sure some of you zip through the theme song and have never seen the clip I referenced. Me, even with a TiVo, I just gotta hear that "Bad Boys" theme!

Can't believe I forgot to bump this thread in April when the news broke, but Fox is drastically cutting back on Cops:

I was wondering what happened. It didn't seem like there were that many new episodes aired this year.

Boo FOX (not quite worthy of a BIH). I couldn't care less about sports. I want more car chasing, ho busting, perp tazing, drug takedown action!
Hopefully with a reduced number of episodes, FOX can concentrate on quality vs quantity.
Who cares about the harmless homeless guy who gets found with a joint in his pocket?

Yeah, I sort of gave up even bothering looking for episodes at this point. I figured it was as good as canceled.

My daughter's ex-boyfriend had a Season's Pass set up for Cops. When he would start to watch one we would ask "Haven't you seen this one before?" He always denied seeing them before but shortly into an episode he would start saying "Watch this." Totally busting himself.
I have 2 favorites. One is when the cop thinks the old lady's house is on fire & busts out lots of window panes & it turns out that it is the house next door that is on fire. The other one is when the cop drives down the railroad track & his car gets stuck.
There are a few local ones that are pretty old & it is funny to watch them & see how the participants have aged.

Is that the one where the cop car actually burned up because the Cop hit something under the car and started a fire?

I vaguely remember seeing that one. I think the cop was chasing someone off road through a forest and then the car caught fire during the pursuit.

That is a classic episode from Fort Worth TX. Police trainers like to use that clip as an example of "tunnel vision." I remember an early airing of that episode in which the cameraman actually pans all around the room, as if he's wondering himself where the smoke and flames are.

That's Spokane WA and he was chasing a stolen 4x4 through the woods. He got the car stuck and the catalytic converter caught the brush on fire, which in turn caught the car on fire.

The one where the cop got his patrol car stuck on the railroad tracks was a different episode, I believe somewhere in the Midwest. Although a train was coming, it stopped well before hitting the cop car.

My TiVo XL4 is filling up with Cops episodes! Can't get enough. It's a sickness.
But I agree that I could do without all the harmless weed busts.

Add domestic abuse to the episodes I could do without. I FF as soon as they come on.

This is why I am enjoying seeing World's Wildest Police Videos back on the air with John Bunnell. All new for 2012, and nothing but dash-cam videos.

"Due to the graphic nature of this program, viewer discretion is advised." Oh yeah.

Sorry, but "Sheriff" John Bunnell's voice is like listening to nails on a chalkboard for me. He was fine when he was featured on the early episodes of COPS, but now that he's a for-hire "expert" and narrator his delivery just grates on me.

Another thing that irritates me is how he constantly refers to himself as "Sheriff." He was only in that position for less than 6 months, was appointed (as opposed to elected by the people) to the post when his former boss retired, and when the choice was finally was up to the people he lost to someone else.

Plus, if it's the same as the previous episodes that I've seen, the clips are sometimes as short as a few seconds - but they repeat them, then they repeat them again, then they repeat the first part in slow motion, then they repeat the last part in slow motion, then they replay part zoomed in, then they replay the whole thing, then they...

Needless to say, it's rather repetitive.

Not only that, but the fake chopper pilot voice overs are ridiculously over-dramatic.

Well, the pilot is real (most of these voiceovers seem to be done by Bob Tur, who was a chopper pilot for an LA-area news station) but the narration and helicopter background noises are definitely faked.

However, I found Bob Tur to be annoying even when he was narrating stuff he was witnessing.

Nice profile of the Cops producers in the WSJ today: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...117479612.html

Guess Fox hasn't made a decision on another season yet. I say put it on G4 and move on...that's all the channel is these days anyway.

Street Patrol was just old, previously unused footage from COPS.

Vegas Strip has been providing my Cops fix and it's even more fun because it takes place in familiar territory.
