  • BIGGEST 'pet peeves' re: cop shows/movies?

    Here's 2 of mine:

    1) Running code BACK to the PD after placing suspects in custody.

    2) Duty gear. How many times have you seen MAG pouches on a duty belt, only to find a REVOLVER in the holster....or vice versa?

    I like the ones where if you listen to the radio transmissions in the background, more often than not they make NO sense whatsoever, as if someone is just reading off the Ten-Codes randomly to make it sound "official"

    Speaking of which, we don't have our radio transmissions blaring out of loudspeakers like that anymore, thanks to something called a portable two-way radio.

          People being knocked violently back when struck by a bullet.

          Cops shooting the BG and never being removed from duty.

          Cops (usually detectives) discovering a huge crime ring and going in to bust the bad guys alone.

          Cops who committ all sorts of crimes while pursuing a BG who killed their A)family member B)Partner), etc., but once the BG is killed or caught, everyone forgets the crimes the cop committed.

          Cops who only were a vest just before they get shot.

              The sound of a racking slide from someone obviously not carrying one in the chamber

              Oh, and the Never-Ending Shootout where no weapon ever goes to slide-lock.

                -They always catch the bad guy.

                -In the beginning of a car chase it was morning, they chase the suspect back to his house and sit and wait outside and peak in the windows and for some reason it's dark by then.

                -Chase last 24 Hours, seems like an eternity.

                -tracking down a villain with a mega-gun that makes things blow up spectacularly.

                -"Do you feel lucky, punk?", "Go ahead, make my day," and "You talkin' to me?"

                -they go over to the darkside to catch the baaaaaad guy. Spooooky hahaha!!! [Eek!]

                -cops are painted as being, ugly, evil and corrupt.

                  Bullets "sparking" everytime they hit something.

                  Lead does not spark.
                  Brass dont spark.
                  Copper dont spark.

                  That pretty well eliminates the sparking.

                  Showers of sparks everywhere.

                    Running code to literally everything, and always pulling up to the front door with every light, siren, and horn activated.

                      When TV/Movie cops make the big bust and seem never to do any paperwork, rarely even making notes. I guess watching somone fill out parerwork and reports doesn't make for good TV, but at least make reference to it...it's 95% + of our work!

                        Fat cops who can't catch a suspect if they tied TNT to their boots.

                        Cops depicted eating donuts, which is not always the case. You wouldn't catch my husband eating a donut.

                          Jam a zippo lighter flint in the end of the bullet, and fire it so the angle is such that the flint will strike a hard surface. It will usually spark.

                              MOST of the 'sparking bullets' are the result of someone OFF-camera using a paintball gun filled with magnesium(IIRC) powder-filled 'paintballs'. A LOT of the 'bullet' impact marks on windshields are done in the same manner, but the 'paintballs' are made of wax.
