It's common knowledge that cops aren't the brightest of the bunch. In fact, a majority are just down right stupid. The officers here exemplify that fact superbly. The first couple claim to be fast runners, but they sure aren't fast thinkers. I guess they never quite figured out how a gate latch works. It is pretty complicated after all. And cop 2, well, he has a hard time differentiating between houses that are on fire and houses that aren't. I'm pretty sure all these guys show up to work in a short yellow bus.
