Now that’s a band name.

When it comes to rocking the Middle East with explosions, you can’t beat Hamas. And now, they’re going to do what Steven Bochco only imagined and had fulfilled for a single season: their cops will rock.

According to Yahoo! News, there’s a special police unit devoted to bringing music to the demoralized. I hear they’ll be working with Timbalaand soon.

See my post at Beliefnet, which gives this story a context which contains an Israeli music flashback and a seemingly gratuitous reference to “West Bank Story.”

And because I love me a good singing cop, I present “Let’s Be Careful Out There,” from the first (and only) season of “Cop Rock.” My favorite part is the precinct piano with the double keyboard. Doesn’t every precinct have one?
