    TV cop shows are the worst for foot pursuits, car pursuits, fights and police shootings. And that doesn*t help when actual uses of force are shown on the news.

    The other one is there is always a parking spot for the police car to pull into at the call. And also when the cops are about to move in on a bust and like four cars appear out of nowhere, lights and sirens and converge on a group who appear to be caught by surprise.

    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    You never see the perp running with hubcaps, so it wasn't you.

    I am not in my twenties anymore and perps don*t have 20 pounds of gear, a Kevlar vest and leather shoes to deal with.

    Plus I have learned to chase smarter, not harder. And when that fails, there is Motorola.

    I guess it depends on the area. I have seen some good ones on TV where the cop out sprints the guy and tackles him on a median. In the inner city if they turn the corner on you with a pretty good lead, they are in someone*s house real fast.

    Almost every drama on TV is based on people making stupid decisions or taking stupid actions. Granted, many criminals are actually stupid, but as you've pointed out, the necessary stupid decision or action might also be written for the 'good guys' of the series.

    Stupidity is written into (almost) every script...

    Of course, in real life, I find stupidity all around me ---- so those scripts might be more realistic than it first seems...

    Can't remember the name of the show, two dollies one a cop the other the medical examiner....near the end of one episode and older male cop points a shotgun at a suspect's head and announced "Boston PD, surrender or die". Effective messaging!
