The end of an era arrived when the TV show COPS was canceled by Fox back in 2020. I'll admit that I grew up watching COPS and my oldest son watched it with me until he was about three years old. The reason we stopped watching was one Sunday in church, he was playing with toy cars and started loudly singing the 'Bad Boys' song followed by the line 'Don't taze me'. So we figured it was time to have him watch more cartoons instead.

COPS was an interesting show to watch when I lived in Las Vegas because you would watch an episode and actually know where it was filmed. During the 32 years the show ran, a number of episode segments were filmed in Idaho among the Boise PD. I was able to find 9 segments filmed in Idaho and you can watch them all below.

COPS did come back for a stint after being canceled and rebranded as COPS Reloaded. We are unsure if the show is still making new episodes.

Timeline: George Floyd's Death, Protests, Riots, Arrests, and Chauvin Trial

It was late afternoon on Memorial Day, 2020 and many Minnesotans had observed the normally active weekend hunkered down because of the growing pandemic.

George Floyd drove to a grocery store in Minneapolis and bought some cigarettes. He was accused by employees of making the purchase with a counterfeit $20 bill and police were called. Floyd was still there in his vehicle when two officers arrived. About 10 minutes later, Chauvin and another officer showed up and the situation began to escalate. Chauvin began kneeling on Floyd's neck as he was facedown on the street. Despite repeated pleas from Floyd and a growing crowd of bystanders to remove his knee, Chauvin continued as if frozen in position with no facial expression. 

After more than 8 minutes, Chauvin finally stood up and Floyd had become unresponsive. An ambulance was called and a short while later, it was reported Floyd was dead.

A video of the incident slowly spread on social media around the state, the country and the world. Viewers literally watched a man slowly die, repeating "I can't breathe." 

The now historic response began the following day.
