Obviously public safety is of less concern than attracting tourist dollars.

Geez, NM is on the bottom of so many lists. At least we had a chance to be top rated for COPS.

Real reason may be some of the Albuquerque City Councilors didn't want to see relatives on the show.

Not only City Council but apparently the Mayor too.

You must be having a tin foil hat moment, right? I was going to explain it to you but then figured it'd fly right past your hat so I'll let you ponder it.

You must be an imposter - even the real BrB was smart enough to understand the link there with regard to how politicians view it.

Why is it that so many spineless politicians get elected into office?

It is not "spineless", it is "flexible". A prerequisite for the job. I call it "slimey".

Politicians live up to our level of expectations, so we get what we allow.

Maybe we don't need COPS, given the attention all these shootings have garnered on the national newscasts.

And they are worried about an outside show bringing us bad publicity when we have our own home grown actors out there.

Another shooting last night. Maybe we will become the Suicide By Cop capital of the US. People will travel here to....given media coverage etc. it is not beyond the realm of possibility.

I support here as well, but apparently the show has not expressed an interest. They should have the right to film in any city without having to be censored like China does with their citizens now or times of the past during the Stalin era. Way to go New Mexico.

Mr. Haney, The State of Oklahoma offers the film, television, and commercial industry up to a 37% rebate. It is capped at $5 million dollars per year. I see you know how to spell heel. "Good job".

I think it really doesn't matter if COPS return or not because regardless Abq has a bad rap anyway. Look at the fatal police shootings. Maybe if the show would come back there would be less police brutality.

We are just now worried about our reputation. Come on, get real.

And if "OFFICIALS" are Anxious about our reputation....then it is a problem. Because our Officials Know Best. Is this a farce and posturing or what?
