It's interesting...until a couple years ago, I wasn't aware that two guys accompanied the cops. I always thought the boom mike was somehow attached to the camera.

The camera guy's got too much going on to do sound too. It takes two hands to work the camera (one for zoom, one for focus).

Here's kinda what a cops sound guy would be doing:

I agree with nataylor. I watched that episode after reading about it here so I was looking to see if I could tell what happened. To me it looked as if the camera man set his camera on the ground. There was a lot of camera movement where he was either bumped from behind or was in the process of putting the camera down. In one shot, you can see a firefighter or EMT walking toward the camera. He is later shown assisting the officer.

As for the man in the black t-shirt. He is not the same man shown later with a lanyard badge. I believe he was the camera man or a citizen that stepped in to help.

The scary thing I noticed about the drugged out guy the cop needed help with was he was going for the cops gun. I think it was when they first began to tussle, you can see the perps hand go around the cops waist and land on his gun just for an instant. The cop quickly got if off.

In theory, they could have one person handle the camera and sound. News videographers do it all the time. News guys typically have a mike mounted on the camera (the most popular model for this use being the Rode VideoMic).

However, news guys typically simply put the audio on their camera on "automatic" and concentrate on the video.

By having a team of two guys, they get better overall quality of sound and video, since the video guy can concentrate 100% on video, and the sound guy can concentrate 100% on sound. This is, after all, supposed to be a "polished" production. Folks will tolerate somewhat reduced quality on breaking news coverage.

By the way, the cops are wearing body mikes too.

I think the guy in the black T-Shirt was either the COPS sound guy or the camera man. If it was the camera man, he must have handed his camera to the sound man (and, hence, all the flailing around of the picture).

Rather pathetic too. So, does she try to steal every pug she sees, thinking it's hers?

At one point, she said something like, "This issue has put a terrible strain on my marriage."

I'll bet it has! If my wife were embarrassing the hell out of me by accusing every owner of a particular breed of dog that she met of stealing her dog, it would put a "strain" on my marriage too!

That's not a boom mic, it's a shotgun mic. A boom mic is on, well, a boom (like the picture I posted before).

My bad.

"Boom" mic was on my brain from all the preceeding posts. My post should have read ...a mic mounted to the camera...

Editing to fix now...

I don't think the camera ever touched the ground. There was constant movement the whole time.
I think the cameraman took the camera off his shoulder and held on to it with one hand while using his free arm to try and help the officer restrain the suspect. As soon as he did that, there were 2 or 3 other guys coming in so he quickly got reset to get the shot.
It happened so fast, there wasn't time to hand the camera to someone else.

There was definitely a cut in there. I'm almost certain now that the camera guy handed off to the sound guy.

One of my favorites was the cop that was chasing the guy then got stuck on the railroad tracks. I laugh out loud every time I see it. The way he panics when he hears the trains. Then the humility when he finds out his sarge knows about it. My second favorite is when the cop thinks the old lady's house is on fire so he breaks out several of those small window panes. His explanation to his higher ups is hilarious to me.

Wow.

That should make an interesting episode in the not too distant future (assuming they were filming at the time, of course).

Unless they have the camera rolling the entire time they are in the car, I doubt it. The article says the car was not on a call; just routine patrol

A similar such episode already exists from when they rode with Denver PD back in the early 90's.

Two patrol cars, one with a COPS crew in the back seat, were rolling with lights and sirens when they collided at an intersection in a residential neighborhood. The camera was rolling and looking through the windshield, and you can see the other patrol car out of the corner of the screen just before impact.

The crew only had minor injuries and were able to get out of the car without any assistance from the fire department. They filmed the aftermath of the crash, which was two totalled Denver PD patrol cars and one totalled front porch.

At least two of the four officers involved did have to go to the hospital however

Jaywalking? REALLY??

That cop must have been on patrol for a couple of hours without a call.

/ goes back to watch next segment.

I very rarely take the "bad guy's" side but that cop was a dick!

I'm glad I only watched a few episodes years ago when it first came on the air, since it still sounds like a very stupid show. I can see none of you have been tasered or arrested unjustly or you wouldn't bother with this show.
No Bashing, Just my opinion.

The cop may have been bored to get him for jaywalking but it was really dumb to try and run. He's lucky the cop didn't taze him or worse.

Stupid? I think not. I use it as a learning tool.
How NOT to get tazed when confronted by the police.

So, what happened in your past that gave you this ''opinion''?

Is this like saying "no offense, but..." then proceeding to say something almost certainly intended to offend?

No, but you did say "no bashing" after bashing the show and the people who enjoy it.

It sure appeared that way. It seemed to me the jaywalker may have been a bit slow (mentally). I think the cop should have talked with the parents a bit instead of just telling them to go away.
