I'm watching an episode of Adam-12. There was a bomb planted in a factory by a disgruntled employee. Bomb is diffused. When they go to question the employee he's gone home early for the day.

This is the part that gets me: They send one patrol car with two officers (Malloy & Reed, obviously) to apprehend the bomber at his home. If it were today, it would have been 65 SWAT members, armored vehicles, probably a helicopter, and so on.

Yeah, it's only a tv show, but it does demonstrate how things change. :lol:

In 1973, I traveled to America from city to city to decide where I was going to live after moving from Korea. I left the states in 1963 and officially moved to Las Vgas in 1974.

Where is he going with this you wonder?

Ha. It was the first time I saw a color TV and the show I saw was 1 Adam 12 and I stared fixated at the screen (all 19" of it) in amazement. Later I would ask myself WTF.

Color TV. How things do change.

Vegas cops were assholes then and assholes now. Some things never change:roll:
