Probably going to be doing more sports programming, I know that was the plan at one point.

Burning them off?? They've been doing the back to back new episodes for years.

Yes, but the second episode has been an "encore" (read: repeat) episode for a long time. The last several weeks, both episodes have been new ones.

Not entirely true. They aired 2 new eps as recently as 1/14, 1/21, 2/4, & 2/25 last year.

I'll be sad the day FOX finally cancels COPS.

My FOX affiliate pushed these episodes to 4:00 Sunday afternoon because they cover the Endymion parade live each year.

I've heard from a couple of semi-reliable sources that COPS had/has crews riding along with New Orleans cops for Super Bowl and Mardi Gras (as they did when a Super Bowl and Mardi Gras "collided" in 2002).

I hope it's true. The Mardi Gras COPS episodes are always great! (One of the cops featured on the most recent one, 2004 I believe, used to be my 2 doors down neighbor. He owned two female pit bulls named Thelma and Louise.)

As a few LA area agencies including the LAPD, LASD, Pomona PD, Rialto PD, San Bernardino SO, and Riverside SO have been featured on COPS, I seriously doubt that's the reason. Plus most agencies (including mine) have dash cameras now.

No, it's that many chiefs (including every one I have worked for since COPS first aired) have the belief that actual police work is not entertainment. Some chiefs also believe the crews will simply get in the way, or worse be such a distraction that the officer really can't do his or her job effectively. Sometimes I find that just having a ridealong can be a distraction, never mind 2 of them in your car with audio and video recording equipment.

I also present the infamous episode from Fort Worth where the featured cop was going to be a hero on-camera and save a woman from her burning home. Except it was NOT her house that was on fire, but one well on the other side of the block. I am of the belief that if the camera crew was not there, he might have been a bit clearer in his thinking, and would not have broken out the window panes of this woman's living room window (each of which were too small for her to crawl through anyway).

Another Fort Worth cop joined in a pursuit, unauthorized, and worse continued to pursue in violation of direct orders to cease which culminated in a traffic accident with an innocent third party who was seriously injured. I believe he did that because he wanted to be captured on camera chasing and apprehending the guy. He ultimately got fired for it.

I especially liked his reaction when his supervisor found out:

Sarge: So, what do you plan on doing to fix this problem? (or something like that)

DumbA__Officer: I dunno Sarge, you're the supervisor!

i guess we dont see the entire chase etc because when they pulled over the 2 guys it seemed like BS they were asking them to get out of the car etc..then they said we saw you in front of the known drug house and i realized why.

i am amazed that as messy as some of these cars are, they find anything half the time.

the woman in the leopard shorts/skirt was just...well..very appropriate for this show

i guess sometimes when they are asking if someone is in a relationship and living to gether is to arrest under a domestic code vs 2 people just knowing each other?

one thing i've pretty much learned is never talk to a cop that pulls you over

The guy in the Maverick did a fine job of talking himself into an arrest.

I wonder who moved the marijuana plants to the guy's backyard. [/sarcasm]

Agreed on both counts. For the drunk driver, I would think that the cop would be able to tell that the driver had been drinking. It's also the first time I've seen a cop have to call another cop to do a sobriety test.

I can't believe the guy in the Maverick complained to the cop about the spotlight blinding him. What a buffoon.
I thought the guy was drunk as soon as they showed him, thought it odd that the cop didn't think that.

I thought the guy did a reasonably good job of covering during the first conversation. As soon as the cop went back to the car, that's when it really fell apart. And you could tell the passenger was mentally facepalming while thinking "Dude! Just STFU already!"

Depending on the agency not every officer may be trained on how to do the SFSTs. It's not all that uncommon to see.

In the second part of the stop you could tell the officer knew something was up and was about to give him a break but he couldn't keep his mouth shut.

Upon initial contact, I thought the guy seemed pretty straight. It wasn't until his attitude changed that I thought "he's on something".

wow that one was great, talking yourself into being arrested. sure made up for the boring other segment with the black guy and the breathing issue.

the cop should have had a starskey and hutch car when he pulled over, that woulda been a classic.

the pot plant thing was just too funny, the plants climbed over the fence themselves eh? i'm so glad i dont have neighbors like that.

A really weak episode. 1/3 of it was a guy calling to complain that his ex-gf made a dime sized dent in his wall? That was the most exciting event they could come up with?

"Boston's Finest" looks pretty good. It's a better "Cops," with Donnie Wahlberg producing and narrating.

Old guys shouldn't run from the cops.

Was that a spike strip one cop was pulling along? Was he going to throw in front of the guy in hopes he'd step on it?

Umm, the "black guy with the breathing issue" is the same one as the "pot plant thing." After he fled from the cops and subsequently crashed his truck, he tried to run. After he was caught, he complained he couldn't breathe. The guy had apparently broken into a medical marijuana dispensary, or decided to steal someone else's harvest.

Or are you talking about last week's episode, with one neighbor accusing the other of stealing her pot plants? That one I thought was a bit boring.

Neither should anyone with a breathing problem.

It looked like one and that surprised the heck out of me. I think that officer was set up nearby to throw the spike strip, but since the guy crashed before he got that far, that officer decided to join in but forgot all about the spike strip he was holding

I suspect the producers of the show included that segment to publicly humiliate the guy (yet he is such a clueless d-bag that he obviously signed a release for the footage of him to be used, not realizing how dooshy he looked).

It really did look to me like the woman wanted a neat, clean, painless break with the guy but he was hell-bent on harassing her for as long as he possibly could, and was going to use the cops and the courts to do it.

She left her sectional sofa in the house (they showed it briefly, it looked new and expensive) because she didn't think fighting over it was worth it and he makes a Federal case out of a dime-sized ding in the sheetrock, something he could have fixed in 10 minutes with a $1 container of spackle and some leftover paint.

I think that was worth seeing for the "disgusting behavior" factor.

D! BAG!

Except it was all stems, not the good stuff. It was the residue left over after a harvest. No one would bother to steal that, it would be like stealing someones lawn clippings.

Why would the moron with the hole in the wall sign off on televising this? If I was that much of a D bag in private I sure wouldn't want everyone to know it. Amazing, the lure of TV in this Facebook hang it all out there culture.
