    "Rookies" Armed traffic stop

    Anyone else watch the new show "rookies" tonight?

    One of the rookies was out patrolling with his training officer and pulled over a car for running a stop sign. The rookie was allowed to handle the stop on his own, approached the vehicle and the first thing you heard was the driver state " I want you to know I am armed".
    The rookie "your armed? OK sir step out of the vehicle". The man was asked to the back of his car where he explained he was a federal agent and showed his I.D. and was let go right away.

    Guess thats how the Fed's do it since they have no CCW to hand over with their license. Don't know why the training officer didn't say anything about why he was taken out of the vehicle though.

    Rookies

    Lots of TV shows lack technical correctness. Things on the street don't happen like on TV. Ever see a LEO on TV do a tactical reload? I havent. Then again I don't watch much TV. Except for NCIS, I like Ziva.

    Rookie didn't have a clue what to do,the FTO asked for ID and got the LEO's badge and ID,they then let him go without a ticket,had it been a civilian I doubt that would have happened

    It's called 'professional courtesy'...

    I was just thinking that the other day when I watched 48 Hours again (Nick Nolte movie, not the news program). I counted more than 6 shots from the revolvers they were using, and Nick Nolte's character had what looked like a 1911 style pistol and he never reloaded during a shoot out, must have a hi-cap mag that ran down his coat sleave.

    I have been noticing that on a number of the new shows. I think they want the sound effect involved with racking a round.

    Years ago when front wheel drive cars first came out did ya notice that hollywood was slow to realize it? I used to see all these front wheel drive cars smoking their rear tires when accelerating.

    That's just good sense, I'm sure they had some issues feeding and were just clearing their gun.

    Cops is a phony show. The cops always say something like, "I took this job to help people and put bad guys away." Really? I never met that cop.
    When do you see them beat a suspect on the show? When do they scream at them? "Apply the baton." Get their stories together.
    Have you seen them bang a suspects head on the hood of a car to teach him a lesson.
    Sorry, Cops is a waste of time.

    The Rookies was to me a good show..it sure made me think twice about becoming a cop, and it made me think threet times about those who are out there on the streets, overworked and underpaid..You do a fantastic job!

    But 7 minutes on a code two call?! And not able to find it on the map..And the poor guy with the radio 10 signals. Don't they have to memories that in the academy? Kind of late when out on the street..

    No, Cops is an edited show, not phony. How many hunting shows do you see where they show the hunter actually shooting an animal and field dressing it. Most city people couldn't deal with it any more than they could deal with the reality of what goes on a police patrol sometimes. Someone would be suing them or summoning them to court continuously. You don't usually see some of the actual violence on the news even when they have it.

    And, if you have never run across a cop that hasn't taken the job as a way of helping people, you haven't been around too many of them....
