I started watching The Rookie this week. OK, yes, I know it's a TV show, but cops knowledge of Laws and Procedures is shown as a literal bedrock, foundation, "where's your Rook Book?" being a repeated line.

Equally though, I'm also aware that cops are put on your streets with mere weeks of training; when was the last time you started a job where you just knew all the rules?

The whole thing seems like a bumblebee ... it shouldn't fly, and yet, somehow ...

TBF, a fellow Brit imitating a Texican can be pretty embarrassing ... heavy on the "y'all", horses, hats and either "steers and queers" or "bushwackers".
