Big City Police

LAPD: Cops - In the 1990s, reality TV and the video-verite look of such police shows as COPS/FOX/1989+ brought a more gritty, in-your-face depiction of life and crime on the street into the living room of American households.

COPS - Police Reality Series

On such "real" TV moment put the spotlight on the LAPD when Caucasian uniformed police officers were videotaped beating black motorist Rodney King. The Rodney King verdict on April 29, 1992 sent a sobering message to the officers of LAPD when the courts ruled against the conduct of the arresting officers and accused them of excessive force and unprofessional conduct.
