Hahahah who wouldn't laugh at that. Regardless, I did not see any patches or identifying marks for their respected agency. City council needs to see that these officers are just trying to bring some positive humor in the law enforcement world.

This is funny!! WARNING - there where no motorist harmed during the making of this SPOOF video, lol...

Lighten up people and laugh, it won't hurt ya...

If your average NPR listener made a video spoofing the police, there wouldn't even be a discussion. That said, if the "actors" in this are real cops, they should have seen the $hit storm coming.

I can't read the patches, if it wasn't for the article I would never have known what agency it was. The council is giving it more publicity then it got on it's own.

My understanding is that the "citizen" is also an officer and this was made while everyone was off duty. Where is the City of Covina's sense of humor. I've talked with several non law enforcement people who have all thought this was a funny, fictional parody of police.

Ya, pretty funny. A little morale enhancement project. Hope those were blanks. After all, what goes up - - - - - . Nobody should get in trouble over this.
