Just watching the show COPS on TV right now, got a few questions: 1. Are the cops in the US really that insane and grumpy? Or are they just playing it up for the cameras? 2. Why have they got this bloke walking a line and following a pen with his eyes when they suspect he's drunk? Why didn't they just breathalyse him right away. I just can't get my head around how serious and mean/mad the cops on this show are - making some bloke call them "officer" and shouting and stuff. I dunno, most of the cops I know here just love getting noise complaints late at night because it's normally close to end of shift and they can have a few beers at the party. Also, they arrested some bloke in a car for drinking beer, not the driver - the passenger. Why would the passenger get booked for drinking beer? He wasn't driving the car.
