More propaganda than reality
17 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first, this show is entertaining, and the behavior of some of the suspects is fascinating. But after a while, you come to see that everything is presented in black-and-white: There are no bad cops, and the suspects are inborn fools or just plain evil. As the show presents itself as a documentary or "reality," this one-sidedness is irritating and takes credibility away from the producers. Hundreds of episodes and I doubt there has been a single incident of abuse or graft, yet they try to present Cops as spontaneous and natural. Police can be "bad boys," too, and trying to disguise this makes this show more propaganda than reality.
