Cops

I don't usually watch shows like "COPS," but happened to have it on in the background while working around the house yesterday. I found it to be very disturbing. They had an undercover female cop working as a prostitute along a well traveled road in the middle of the day. A old man agreed to meet her in a parking lot around the corner, and when he got there he was surrounded by two police cars. Five excited officers jumped out, guns fully drawn at the poor man, and asked him to get out. He must have been about 65, and he started crying. Is this where our tax dollars go? Including the undercover cop, there were 6 officers involved in a sting to lure an aged retiree into asking for sex. The undercover female cop was the only "hooker" on the street at the time. If she had not been there this poor man would have continued on to his destination. And plus, this could be the only way someone his age can even get sex.

These officers went out of their way to lure this poor guy into this horrible situation. And were 6 cops really needed to do this? And was it necessary to approach him with all their guns drawn? I mean, come on! I can think of many other things these cops can be doing with their day. I'm sure our tax dollars can be put to better use.
