You're Under Arrest... for Being a Terrible Cop

View Chris Kavan's Profile

There are plenty of good police officers out there who take protect and serve as a way of life, not just a job. But Hollywood would also like us to know there are just as many who would like a nice fat doughnut or to chill out than do some actual police work. Here is the lineup, hopefully they're not walking the beat anymore:

1) Officer Slater and Officer Michaels of Superbad - Sure, they're fun to hang around with, but the only thing they rightfully accomplished during their night was breaking up a party and arresting a drunk (who later got loose), plus they had to torch their own car. Most cops at least accomplish something - these guys just like getting drunk and having a good time as opposed to, you know, actual work.

2) Vermont State Troopers in Super Troopers - Granted, in the end they manage to take down a smuggling ring, but they would much rather have fun whether that means getting high, messing with the people they pull over, or take evidence out for a spin. Pranks are great and all, but not what I would want my local police to be practicing.

3) The Illinois Police Department in The Blues Brothers - All I can say is that I'm glad I didn't have to deal with the budget committee following the carnage and destruction of all those police cars - plus calling in the state and national guard... for two guys. Hey, at least it didn't look like anyone died!

4) Lt. Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun series - Another man who despite his complete lack of talent or intelligence seems to solve the crime in the end. Still, if I was going to pick a man to head up my investigation, I think Lt. Drebin might be far down on the list.

5) Inspector Clouseau - See above, but add in a French accent! Just like Frank, this stumbling, bumbling detective always comes out on top, despite being accident prone and clueless.

There are plenty of "bad" cops out there and by bad I don't mean corrupt, I mean just plain bad. Sure, they may get the bad guys in the end, but you still have to deal with these guys. That may be the biggest crime of all.
