What do you think about giving celebrities guns and the authority to become cops for a small town and filming it? It doesn't really seem fair, or sets a good example when celebrities, such as Jack Osborne, who have a history of drug use are given guns. They are trained and given the ability to apply deadly force by a television network in the name of ratings.
I don't think it should be taken that seriously, since they are just being trained to the point of ride alongs in Muncie, IN. Doesn't seem like they'd have too much violent crime there. The previews look like their all having fun and learning cool cop stuff.
how often do cops use guns anyway? they're like resorts or something aren't they?
i reckon they're taking this a little too far now. being a cop is hard work and takes so much dedication to the job, just throwing in random "celebrities" and giving them a badge can't be doing much for the actual policemen's pride for their work.
I saw the last night, and I think that the cops made it clear to the celebrities that they weren't messing around and to take things seriously. The cast took their training (seemed a little short) and their ride alongs pretty seriously.
"No Jacking Around" was what they told Wee-man (Jackass) and Jack Osbourne. and they didn't.
This show is excellent! I love it. Did you see last night's episode? The part where Trish Stratus goes on the call with that dancing, pool-cue waving old crazy was truly great. She's like "we have to treat everyone with respect" and she did, I loved it. She just seems so confident, which is probably the reason she became an athlete in the first place, whereas the rest of the cast seems so underconfident, which is probably the reason they became celebrities in the first place...
