    Same here, I dont think I could be a cop I wouldn't of had the patience to follow that guy for so long, I would of tazed, oc'd, beanbag'd long before it got that far in the video.

    Plenty are still too cheap/poor/lazy/dumb to get tasers, but I've never heard of any place that didn't have something aerosol.

    Well I don't know exactly how old that particular episode is, but they all have the older gen Crown Vics, so it's somewhere between 1992-1997.

    What a mess, a dozen ofc's just walking after him. I would have shot him when he turned around in a threatening manner. I was laughing about the "good shot" remark. OC might not have helped, but a Taser would have been perfect. Some departments are actually getting rid of them too.

    :werd: I can only imagine the briefing the chief had with those cops the day before the crew showed up.
