    We have been tearing through this show. Great stuff to have on when you can't pay 100% attention all the time.

    Wanted to punch that guy in the face. Like the guy falling thru ceiling on Cops last week, another could not have been better if scripted scene the college guy's lying passed out surrounded by beer cans in apartment parking lot.

    Saw this floating around from last night's episode. Hmm wonder why they panned away from the cops kneeing the downed suspect.

    I'm just watching this episode and also noticed that. But it seemed at the time that the perp was thrashing around as they were trying to get him to be still and cuff him. I could be wrong, but that was the impression I had right in that second.

    This has to be one of the most action-packed episodes. That first chase that ended in a wreck was bizarre, then the really long chase was just shocking - most shocking was that nobody was hurt!

    I would probably be thrashing around too though if you have someone kneeing you in the head and another person kneeing you in the hip will while laying on your stomach with both arms behind you back.

    The classic not my pants. That citizen phone video of him almost running down cop deploying stop sticks was chilling.

    Yeah, the 'not my pants' defense always makes me laugh. That anybody would think it would be believable is kind of strange. If I'm going to put on somebody else's pants (which I've never done), I'm checking the pockets first. Something like a crack pipe isn't flat so you'd see that right away.

    As for the Fri night chase - oh man! That was mind blowing. Cool they got that other perspective on that one piece. It was shocking that nobody got hurt. They re-air these so if anybody wants to check it out, it was from Friday night and right toward the beginning after another chase that was much shorter.

    I have a feeling the officer that was almost run over will be next weeks guest.

    I was thinking the female office from Jeffersonville might be the in studio guest next week. She did a good job physically subduing that man and woman at the same time.

    I think the African American office from Jeffersonville might be my favorite on the show. Brandon something. He is very calm and cool and works to defuse and de-escalate situations very well. All while maintaining a demeanor that doesn't let anyone forget that he is in charge. Seems like the kind of officer we need more of.

    Probably not. I don't think that officer was one of the "cast" -- the officers that they follow with cameras.

    That was impressive using the weight of the girlfriend to control both of them. Might and should be both to illustrate the dangers they face.

    I would imagine that the officers who participate are the officers who have agreed to participate. They are the ones who are followed by cameras and who participate in updates and such.

    Yeah- I'm sure there is a certain amount of training they go through before being one of the featured officers. TV/media training, I mean. I do wonder if they receive any sort of compensation for things like the studio appearances. It wouldn't be ethical/legal for them to receive additional compensation for being filmed during their regular shifts I would think. But if they are in the studio it might be a different story.

    I would imagine if they wanted to bring in the officer who was almost run over they could, but I don't see him being asked to be the in studio guest. Part of the draw of the show is the fact that we follow the same officers week in and week out and get to know their personalities, styles, etc. They want those guys (and gals) in the studio. The audience has a relationship with them. The other guy- yeah, it was an amazing thing to watch him jump in his trunk to avoid getting killed, but he isn't someone I need to have in the studio. Just my $.02.

    I agree that a lot of the appeal is getting to know the officers we see each week. I have a number of favorites from different locations and they all seem to be, in various way, really good at what they do and caring about it as well.

    I also like that they take questions from viewers and have also gotten additional info from viewers. Somebody upthread mentioned that quick 'knee to the head' thing from the other day and I kind of hope somebody brings it up and gets the question answered. It didn't feel, to me anyway, like an attack on the perp but then I wasn't there. :) It felt more like the officer avoiding injury from somebody who was continuing to evade.

    Since the chase crossed many jurisdictions (and even the state line), I'm not even sure if the officer that nearly got run over is with one of the agencies that the show has contracts with.

    That certainly may be so, thought was strange they didn't even mention his name might also be he doesn't want attention for many obvious reasons nowadays.
