Best Cops Ever!

Tonight, COPS aired their 20th anniversary special on Fox.

This episode was full of action packed and unique clips filmed over the 20 seasons COPS has been on the air. The clips ranged from funny to dramatic to dangerous to outright shocking.

One reason why I liked the episode is because it portrayed the dangers Law Enforcment Officers face everyday, and the public doesn't usually see. This episode should be shown to community groups, with some narrative, to detail why LEO's use the force they do sometimes, because they want to go home at the end of the shift. I also liked this episode because it demonstrated how Tasers can effectively and quickly descalate an incident.

I'm sure this could have, easily, been a two hour special, if not more.

I hope they release this on DVD, with bonus footage.
