    19 cops for one purse snatcher? And nowadays it’s: “oh you were robbed? Yeah, file a report and we’ll get back to you never”.

    Some of them seem really into it! Wondering if any had any sort of “awakening”.

    It’s funny to see how some of em got into it, and then there’s Robert, kneeling in the center going “I’m going to kill every last one of you. This is bullshit.”

    I’m sure a tourist showed up to LA for the first time that day and said “my friends were wrong, the women here are hideous.”

    At least one of these dudes REALLY liked dressing as a woman and continued to do so in private shame for years to come.

    This looks like Monty Python needed extras.

    All together now: “He’s not the messiah…”

    The scene in Police Academy 3 (i think?) with Bubba Smith dressed up as an old lady to catch a purse snatcher, makes more sense now.

    First row, third from left, took the assignment seriously, and looks marvelous.

    I feel like the police aren’t putting in this kind of effort anymore?
