    If you believe TV your a damn fool…Dont make this about cops. Doctors dont give beat down’s but give unnecessary treatments.
    Your an idiot if you think sponges wear pants, the Avengers are real, etc…
    Like your show it’s pure entertainment my man

    so, we’re saying that the problem is that TV cops are better than real cops, or are we saying that real cops should aspire to be more like TV cops? i also noticed that tv thugs snitch to the police in record fashion. if real thugs were the same, it would be so much easier to solve crime in this country.

    Pitch for a tv show: remake of revenge of the nerds, but a horror, in which nerds unite and eugenically remove ignorant macho’s from society. No wait, would that be the opposite of horror genre?

    If you believe that watching TV cops gives you the impression that the police only use necessary force… Then you haven’t watched much TV cops.
    50% of interactions with gangs end with all gang members dead, except the gang leader who will be shot in the season finale.
    Seriously, even in police series the cops frequently empty their guns.

    Beating the shit out of a suspect…..almost like BLM mobs attacking people in their cars.

    Even in cop shows where most cops are good IA is seen as an enemy rather than a valuable oversight. Maybe someone should create an internal investigations TV show. Each week they investigate police brutality. Sometimes they arrest the bad cops. Sometimes their’s not enough evidence. Sometimes they find no malice but a cover up of a mistake. Sometimes a whistle blower helps but leaves the department due to resulting harassment. Maybe a cop flees the state. Sometimes a criminal is just grifting and gets good cops in stress. Maybe that show would work.

    30yr old white female here and if cops talk to me so rudely for driving home from work at 3:30am and have themselves believe I was “getting off the freeway as soon as I saw a cop” then I can’t imagine how they would treat a male of color.
    There is a video by a lawyer about What to do when pulled over go check it out.

    So instead of beating them, they kill the suspect. No trial no problem. Smfh. I hope people know I’m being sarcastic. #ABLM

    From europe, we frequently see the american police as violent, aggressive and trigger happy. But my vision changed after I had the opportunity to do a night patrol with a Kent County police in Washington state. In only one night, we attended a call for a massive street fight, a person who did not have medical insurance and was having health problems (he calls the police because he knows that they will provide free medical assistance), a person in a state of drunkenness disturbing the neighbors , two calls for trespassing (one from an older woman with mental problems who 2 or 3 times a week calls the police saying that hears noises at home and if they do not go, it gets very bad) , take a minor girl (12 years old, approximately), to her house because she was wandering alone on the highway at 3 am, one speeding ticket, and lastly, a massive fire in a trailer park where migrants workers live, and we had to knock on the doors of all the houses, running and screaming in Spanish, because they were asleep and the flames could kill them without them realizing … all that, in one night, with cordiality and a smile to each person, even knowing that unlike in Europe, many people are armed and could shoot you. That policeman, a true hero, died two years ago, run over by a minor who sold drugs and fled when the police answered the neighbors’ call. if the American people want to end police violence, (im not denying it in some cases) the first thing they must do is disarm.

    Omg. If you don’t like the show, don’t watch it. It’s entertainment. I’m glad some people didn’t grow up with Wile E. Coyote. There would be dynamite explosions everywhere. Smh.

    I love cop shows, but that’s because it’s as much a fantasy as Game of Thrones. Maybe even more so given the cop shows usually get happy endings.

    Oh gawd, they’re going to get rid of our entertainment, movies are all about taking a stereotype and blowing it into smitherines so it’s entertaining. Could you imagine if breaking bad was about a chemist who decided to teach kindergarten instead of cooking up meth. The audience would be completely bored. Lol, we can re-educate the public and make sure people see all people as human beings- the real truth is people believe everything they see because no one takes a second to think on their own. That’s why the media gets away with murder. Also if only 21% came in contact with police, what is the demographic composition of that Stat in real numbers because the percentage seems low

    Trevor you are such a G..D….. Liar. You glorify people who have been raping, burning and murdering people and you side with people who shame people who report these attacks on themselves as “racist” or privileged. All these Leftist “Utopias” are falling apart and they expect the rest time of the country to bail them out.

    Trevor comes from a country where half the country calls for the death of it’s white population and we are supposed to look to him as guidance about our race situation.

    The best and most accurate depiction of the police in american television is in David Simon’s Treme (which is a remarkably and brilliant show for many other reasons as well)

    Very important point, which i’ve never realized so clearly, thanks Trevor!
    It’s also the same way, cable news cover politics! They claim to tell us which are the good ones and which are not! Sadly the older generations who have little to no contact with the internet, never question the view of their favorite news channel or come in contact with contrasting facts etc.! That’s why most of them never change their opinion about politicians, because they just see and hear, what the cable news media wants them too see!
