Just kissed ya Private Detective!! Glad this neurotic "reality" series is over. My uncle (from my dads's side) is a retired Dayton OH cop. He always thought the show was crap from the get-go. He's working as a consultant for a corporation now and making three times the big bucks.

I've watched this show as much as I could since it aired at or about 1988. This show was misleading from the start: they always depicted cops as always winning, no matter what. What they did not (or dared not!) show were cops getting their asses kicked good, and later losing in court because a smart judge said so. They never showed cops being sued, or getting their butts chewed by supervisors or prosecutors. Most importantly, they always picked on rednecks, street hookers, low-income blacks, or teenagers. They were hardly shown picking on well-to-do upscale members of the community who had excellent attorneys on speed-dial.
