    OK, so if I have outstanding warrants and my legal name is john, I can tell the cops that my name is Juan, Ian or Sean because those are are my name in different languages? If he gave his real SSN then maybe the cop could have been a little mor relaxed, but once you give a phony name, he or she is probably going to be suspicious.

    All Episodes Talk: All Rise

    I first heard about this product from Cops years ago, and later Live PD as drug paraphernalia (which you could call matches, lighters and many other things). Of course for years I thought it was Choir Boy which didn't seem to make much sense. Since this is a brand name, I wonder how the company likes their notoriety thanks to these shows. Maybe some of the suspects could make bail by doing endorsements?

    I wasn't really excited by this episode but after all of the hype about Noah and Sarah alphas guaranteed to butt heads, I enjoyed the way they worked together pretty well. I still don't like Noah but Sarah is growing on me.

    Is this a reference I don't get, or did you just mean "rich"? I read it as lampooning the mistaken or mispelled word usage by contestants and judges on the show. I may be overthinking this.

    I just watched last night's new episode. I wish that cops would avoid pontificating about things that they know not much about. One cop said that the suspect had a BAC of .21 which he then said that meant that 21% of his blood volume was alcohol. He was only off by a factor of 100. When they go into detail on firearms issues, they frequently go well beyond their knowledge. And don't get me started on the phrase "rate of speed".

    I've noticed this also. In fact some of the litigants with distinctive features on "new" episodes look so familiar that I wonder if they are taking old cases and trimming them to fit in to three (or four) case half hour shows.

    The People's Court

    Looks like it. My first case involved the the health care worker who claimed (I use that word only after listening to the rest of the case where she repeatedly exaggerated and lied) that her patient, an elderly man confined to a wheelchair sexually harassed her. Unfortunately for her, she sent the defendant text messages threatening him with a harassment complaint if he didn't sign her fraudulent time sheet so she would get paid for days that by her own testimony she didn't work.

    Reruns again today, but we saw some really ugly litigants and I am not talking about appearances. Sexual harassment claim used for blackmail, a vicious dog owner (the dog, not the owner) who is so painfully clueless and callous (to say nothing of dishonest) that it hurt a little to even listen to her.

    Yep, JJ was really annoyed by that point. The witness really looked stunned and angry when he sat down.

    Agree, this is just padding, more air time means more commercials money.

    Hot Bench

    I suspect that he could find a reason to rule in favor of a defendant even in first degree murder, especially if the other two judges went the other way.

    A while back I had an uncle who after his stroke had the inappropriate wailing problem. It was difficult to be around, but as an adult I understood the situation. I can understand that dogs (particularly watch dogs) would react to this. However I hated the defendant with her box of rocks level stupidity telling us about her gated driveway and how she wasn't responsible when she opened the gates and her watch dogs got out. Her whole "I asked them to come in my house" to get cleaned up for the wounds (that she maintained never happened) made me think of the movie "Misery"; no way in hell would I go into her gated house without an armed escort. A lot of the clueless pit bull owners have pissed me off but none more that this woman.

    To me, it looked like the cop started off polite and reasonable and only got a bit touchy after the woman started mouthing off and challenging his authority, not taking the situation seriously. She started jumping down his throat before he could even tell her why he stopped her.YMMV.

    I am not complaining, some of my favorite moments have been with runners. One guy tried to run with his hands cuffed behind his back (made it about ten feet before falling), another started running then tripped over his pants which had fallen down within a few steps. My real favorite was the young kid who got chased down by a cop who laughed at him because he couldn't out run the cop who was much older, overweight, carrying a lot of gear, AND had an artificial leg. Pretty soon, having a driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance will be automatically suspicious and probable cause for detaining and searching. This will happen right after “conversate” and “tooken” become accepted usage.
