Illuminating and infuriating

This show doesn’t bash cops. It bashes Cops! The show does a great and entertaining job of revealing the history, tactics, and impact of the show on all stakeholders involved. I have always wondered about people arrested on these shows and this podcast helps us understand people who have had the worst night of their lives recorded. And the releases?... What I really appreciate is the critique of how these shows ultimately show a one dimensional portrayal of policing that is actually out of wack with reality. The show could have been a complex tour through a complex profession and service. Unfortunately the creators and producers were more interested in sensation for ratings and not substance. Very interesting podcast.
