    Civil Rights Group Urges Fox to Cancel 'Cops'

    The civil rights group ColorOfChange would like to see Cops put behind bars.
    Good grief.

    ColorOfChange has asked Fox not to renew its unscripted law-enforcement show and is calling upon advertisers to withdraw support, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. On Wednesday morning, the group is sending supporters an email in which it asks them to sign a petition to that effect.

    "Although marketed as unbiased, Cops actually offers a highly filtered version of crime and the criminal justice system a 'reality' where the police are always competent, crime-solving heroes and where the bad boys always get caught," the email reads in part. It goes on to charge Copsand shows like it with over-representing whites as police officers and under-representing minorities as authority figures. According to ColorOfChange, Cops glosses over issues such as police misconduct and broadcasts "dehumanizing portrayals" of suspects.
    "We're sending the message to Fox and to advertisers that Cops is not worth saving," says Rashad Robinson, executive director of ColorOfChange.

    Wow. It's the one show that actually shows reality (minus the paperwork). I'd like to see them keep filming and cancel the kardashians instead. That is a waste of airtime

    And the "Housewives" of whatever area. I'd rather read an Enquirer.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
