writers getting caught on COPS

Recommended Posts

Ok, i know alot of people are probably going to think this is asking for trouble, but here goes. Does anyone remember an episode of COPS where somebody was caught writing? A friend of mine swears he's seen one, and i seem to remember one from years ago but no names come to mind. Oh, and if it's blowing up anybodys spots or anything, a simple yes and some details will do.

I remember an episode where they pulled over a car and in the trunk they found cans of spray paint, then the cop went into this explanation about what these kids do and how there tags represent a certain meaning like arrows mean drugs for sale around the corner and soo on. it was really funny,

there was an episode where 2 kids got caught painting a water tower.....helicopters and all were involved. you could kinda see the tags/throwups but they were weak.

 

there was also an episode where the cops rolled up to a suspected writer's crib. on the way over there, the police give a brief explanation of the kid's plight...he's been arrested before for "tagging", they know what he 'spray paints' and he's also been ratted. they never tell you what he writes(it's very non-glamorizing). when they arrive at his spot, its a semi-suburban home with flowers in the garden and preteens on tricycles. they knock on the door, go inside and arrest the kid, a very quiet black teen, in front of his mom and his little brothers and sisters. the peculiar thing is, is that everyone's so quiet. there's absolutely no ill drama, but rather, a peaceful "end of the road" feel, like when they play 'ooh-ooh child' in the movie 'boyz in the hood'. the surrounding scene and architecture look rather west-coastish. i seen this around 97 so it was probably actually filmed in 95-96, my detail may or may not be as precise as it appears....but close enough. the moral of the story here kids is to make mommy

proud enough that if and when you get caught someday(knock on wood) she won't flip out on you but rather she'll understand the notion that you're probably learning another lesson in the book of life *weep**sob*.....excuse me, i think i'm going to call MY mom now *weep**sob*

dude there's so many episodes of cops. they play marathons like 3 times a day now. there's probably ten or more episodes of graf related shit, that happened to slip under the noses of the average 12oz posters..... cops is hella fun to watch, but the

thing that erks me is that they never show criminals who actually get away. they should have a "feel good" episode where all the thugs who run....make it. but i guess the show's true intentions are to provide a way to 'scare' america into not doing

crimes. mission accomplished? ...lol

 

mommy says, "don't do drugs. unless its cocaine and then i get a cut."

I remember this one episode from San Francisco when they stopped these kids who fit the profile or "looked like" graffiti vandals according to the cops.

That's right! "LOOKED LIKE" hahaha!!!

 

These nerds were high flossin' tags and stickers all over their shit. Jackets and sacks. Sure enough, they had cans, magnums, and blackbooks.

The cops proceeded to try and match up tags from their peicebooks to see if they had hit anything near where they were stopped. So as to have a real reason for stopping them.

NOT A DAMN TAG MATCHED!! These kids did'nt even get up.

 

FUCKING AMATEURS for gettin' made by the po' without even layin' it down!

The shit I saw on cops goes as follows

 

Cops setup a sting operation. They put out massive flyers and shit all around town. They advertised a film being filmed intown and wanted "graffiti people" to show up and get paid for doing a peice and some taggs in the background of an alley that was going to be in the movie. So like 18 guys show up..the "producers" tell them do do all there stuff on these walls to see which shit they would like to see in the background. Bam after they all do throw ups and shit cops bust in and handcuff them all...compare styles and pictures with the shit the people put up. And arrested like 16 of em...other 2 were like local tatoo artists or some bs graphic drawers. I saw that like 4 years ago....I dont remember specifically any of the names...and I dont even remember the location.

saw it....they took the kids in, but let them out the next day, there was an ill cense tag in a mailbox the cop was checking, and he asked some girl on the corner if she saw them writing, she pointed where she saw them writing and the cop went over and touched some of the tags with his fingertips to see if they were still wet....the kids claimed they went to the art school....they had a stack of stickers and a ton of paint in theyre bags....it wasnt a COPS episode, just a special on TLC about the SFPD.

No no no... It wasn't Cops. It was America's Dumbest Criminals. I only saw the end, I didn't even see any graffiti they did. That really pissed me off though. The kids aren't that "dumb" though for doing their own shit legally. The simplest defense and one that could hold up in court is "I just like that guys style." Just because a kid can write just like TWIST doesn't mean he is Twist and doesn't mean you can arrest him for all the damage Twist has done.

 

To me the cops were the dumb guys in that segment. If those charges held up in court and the kids were dumb enough to plead guilty, they deserve it.

 

A big FUCK YOU to all the cops out there for setting that one up.

 

You know what else pisses me off... Prostitution stings. That's so fucked up and degrading. A horny mexican dude goes out tricking and get's tricked by the po... Shit aint right man.

 

Love is free but if a guy wants to pay for it what's the problem?

Oh yhea thanks man..I remember seeing that now. I knew it was some gay cops show. But yhea they showed the video of the kids doing some throwies and taggs...and like an elapsed time video sped up..but you really could make anything out..and it went to fast...but yhea fuck those cops.

That was San Francisco Police on the beat. Not COPS.

They didn't even get tickets. It's funny you call them amateurs. Do you even know who they were?

And of course a bitch ratted.

i seen an episode with some graff fools getting caught. west coast i think and they were climbing this low roof sorta area. cops found markers on them. I saw an episode or 2 were the criminals got away. One kid ran into the projects and shaked the jakes. Another a guy was in a car chase and there was even a helicopter but he ran in this big apartment looking building and they never found him.

The writers you speak of were mostly from a crew called OFA and it was in the bay area (oakland/berkely) that this sting happened i was unaware that it made cops but they had hidden cameras all over the place and it was a big story on the evening news with extensive footage they defimitly would have had enough to splice some action for the kops. The sting was found to be unethical but some still had to face charges for previous crimes.:(

I've seen writers get busted twice on the rare occasions I've seen COPS, or some other cop-related programme. Both times they were in San Francisco.....
