Cops Gone Wrong

"I thought this was gonna be..."
  [vote for,

Inspired by Zanzibar's recent annotation to CSI: Morning After, I want to see a show that's identical to "Cops", except the bad guys always get away. You know they've had plenty of outtakes destroyed while making the series.

I really want to hear what they would say when wrapping things up. You know: "We didn't get the bastard, but I like to feel we made a difference today." That sort of thing.

"what?" The Watch. http://www.discworl...k/whoswho_watch.php
The crew of misfits that patrols the streets of Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" universe. [jutta, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       yeah or even just a really incompetent poilce show where they blatantly miss obvious clues. 'hey mister are those bloody hand stains all over your clothes there?' 'eh... no officer, I just had a burrito for lunch.' 'oh, ok, on you go.' Great.

       Oh like Reno 911?

       Inspector Clouseau?   

       he wasn't incompetent, for a french copper he was actually quite intuitive and efficient.

       Rather like Sergeant Colon and Corporal Nobby Nobbs of Ankh-Morpork, Discworld?

       In US shows (Wildest police chases etc... all that stuff shown on Bravo and presented by Sheriff John Burnell!), they always show the British police letting the bad guys escape!

       Just bring a camcorder to Western Australia.   

       //I really want to hear what they would say when wrapping things up.//   

       Nothing whatsoever, unless directed to by a Royal Comission.

       Eugene, you read Terry Pratchett too?

       This could be a motion picture plot: serial killer learns trade from editing clues out of films being prepared by law team experts for trial use.

       When the narrator admits that the police were powerless to stop the criminals, they should still do it in a smug, Sheriff John Bunnell Ret manner, "they got away, but they can’t hide forever. One day, they’ll be running away… behind bars!”
