Called the original reality show, COPS hit the airwaves in 1989, putting camera crews in police cars all across the United States. Adopting the cinéma vérité style of documentary filming, COPS uses no narration, depending completely on the police officers and the footage shot as it happens to tell the story. Still one of the most popular television shows on the air, COPS continually wins its 8pm time slot Saturday nights on FOX. COPS can also be seen in syndication on CourtTV and on the FX Cable Channel.

It astonishing how many clearly dirty and violent scumbags, that represent the police-workers in a show like this.
I'm glad they don't bother to cut out the bits where we can see them beating someone up unprovoked, and to then lie to everyone including their commanding officer.
Camera captures it all, but the fact that the scumbags dont even mind the camera = thats the scary part.

Back when this first came out I had a friend that was a paramedic and he loved the show so I'd go over to visit him and his family and we'd watch this. Good times, miss you Fred.
