A spoof of the verite television series Cops, this low-budget, independent comedy from writer and director Beeaje Quick was an award winner for "Best of Fest" at the Long Island Film Festival. After being hassled and beat up by some LAPD officers, filmmaker Juan Pelotes (Randy Gatica) decides to get revenge by creating a mockumentary that satirizes L.A.'s boys in blue. Enlisting the aid of two Latinos just released from police custody (played by Quick and Jose Ignacio Alvarez), Pelotes costumes his stars in police uniforms and follows them around the city with a camera, recording their staged antics of bullying citizens and propositioning beautiful women.
