see, if i were a police officer, and i spotted a bad guy from across the street, i would NOT stop the unmarked car, get out, and yell at the guy from a distance -- which then predictably results in the guy taking off at a full run, and me having to chase him.

you cannot tell me that actual police is this stupid. and you, the writer, must think we are all dumb fucks that after years of this malarkey on TV we don't recognize such a thinly veiled excuse for a chase to artificially increase the drama. sheesh. switch on your other neuron and write something less cliché, willya.

That's just pitiful.

I've seen plenty of police dramas where they do in fact jam the car across the sidewalk in front of the suspect and emerge with guns drawn. So I can only assume that we're supposed to think the officer in this case wanted the exercise, or perhaps the excuse to do violence to the alleged perpetrator.
