    IIRC numerous arrests were thrown out because Cops was considered to be prejudicial to the rights of defendants.  Incidentally, I suspect a lot of those were otherwise good arrests and some number of criminals got to walk as a consequence.

    There are secondary issues: the film crew, in all probability, is endangering themselves and the cops they're filming.  Either that, or there is some amount of staging going on, which is hardly unprecedented on reality shows.
