Bad boys, Bad boys, what you gonna do?

Vatos malos, Vatos malos, Que van a hacer?

Item number 16 on the City of Laredo's upcoming city council meeting sure has a familiar ring to it. Read for yourself and see if you don't agree:

Agenda item 16.  2011-R-11 Authorizing the City Manager to enter into and execute a Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Laredo and Al Roker Productions for the purposes of recording footage of the activities of the Laredo Police Department for the purposes of a ten (10) episode television series to air on a nationally syndicated television network.

Now, if that doesn't sound like Fox's Cops show, I don't know what does. They'll probably cover a lot of DWI arrests, vandalism, sweeps of San Bernando, some child abandonment cases....oh wait, sorry, I must be thinking of Pro8news. Who knows maybe they'll respond to a call involving one of Laredo's homeless and discover another Golden Voiced panhandler.


  1. Doesn't look like there is anything COPS like in the Al Roker Productions page.

    Let us know when you know or I guess I could just watch the city council meeting.

  2. How is this going to help Laredo's image? Catching Laredo drunks, family squabbles, or may a cocaine or money siezure. Wow, maybe even a shot or two of cops responding to the river and bridge because of automatic gun fire in Nuevo Laredo.

    Seems like a disconnect somewhere. But, maybe it's just me.

  3. Don't forget throwing the homeless's belongings in the back of a garbage truck. I know, some of you might applaud that. A que los homeless.
