A guilty pleasure
10 February 2012 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

COPS is a fine show if you want to watch a bunch of white trash people in wife beaters(if they have a shirt on at all) make total asses out of themselves. Most of the crimes depicted on COPS are crimes like drug use, domestic abuse, breaking and entering and so on. The funniest one I think I ever seen on COPS was a guy pushing a hot water heater down the road and the cops stopping him then going into a local business that had broken into and the hot water heater had been stolen from, and then still claiming his innocence. It's amazing how stupid people that are getting arrested on this show are, but I guess if they weren't that stupid they wouldn't be on COPS and/or the show wouldn't be as entertaining as it is.
