No, it's not a reality show on Fox (not yet anyway), it's the Chicago Police Department! They've purchased a whole bunch of Segway scooters to tool around the city on.
They also got scarves and assless chaps to match.
Seriously though, if you saw a cop careening towards you on a Segway, wouldn't you break down laughing? Wouldn't you lose it in a retarded fashion? Maybe this is a good crime fighting technique, because I know that if I were in the middle of committing some horrible crime, I would stop mid-spree to laugh if a cop came after me on one of those things.
Just because you carry a gun doesn't mean you can pull off a Segway. You don't look any cooler than someone with a pocket protector riding around on one of those things.
Sir, please pull over. . .you look like an idiot.
