I watched a COPS episode last weekend, and saw a local Sheriff's deputy, Officer Kent Mundell, being interviewed on the way to a call. Officer Mundell spoke out about his love for his work and the Pierce County Sheriff's Mountain Unit to which he was assigned. After the episode was over, I watched to see what kind of notice would be made of Officer Mundell's segment, given that he was shot to death last year answering a domestic disturbance call in his beloved Mountain Unit--but nothing was said, no notice of his sacrifice, no special reference at all. I was saddened that the producers of the show had no more respect for the people off whom they make their mega-bucks living than to be this insensitive. I guess the rough, tough sock'em viewers they attract wouldn't want such sentimentality.
