If Sawyer is a cop, then why didnt he bust Kate?

In the Airport when he saw her handcuffs?  he just made that little smirk of his.

He is mainly a cop just to find Sawyer.

He is a cop, just not a very dedicated cop.

I'll go with the whole "not very dedicated", but I think the reason he didn't bust her was so he wouldn't have to explain where he actually went when someone asked him why he was in the international terminal.

Good point. I was thinking it was cause the security guard was an @$$ to him, so he decided not to help, a la Parker in the first Spiderman movie.

This is what I figured as well. He didn't want to have to explain why he was there.

All he had to do was say something like "Nice bracelet.  Looks just like handcuffs."  He wanted her to get away.  I suppose we'll find out why eventually.

The top 5 reasons Sawyer didn't arrest Kate:

5. He wasn't eager to help airport security
4. He didn't want anyone to know where he'd been
3. He's too preoccupied with his search for the real 'Sawyer'
2. He was destined to help her and subconsciously had no free will to do otherwise

and the number one reason Sawyer didn't arrest Kate.....

1. She's hot!

#4 is the only one that is accurate as far as I'm concerned.

Why so serious?   ???  I know I'm no David Letterman, but I was just trying to make a funny!   :'(

Anyway, you're probably right, but I bet if she smiled at him and asked him to take her somewhere where the handcuffs might be more useful, he would have taken her up on it in a second!   ;)

Ding ding ding.  #2 rings true to me in a way.  I think there's some bleed-over between the different realities.  On some level maybe Sawyer remembers Kate the same way Jack vaguely rememberd Desmond on the plane.  We'll see.

maybe he's not allowed to arrest anybody in Airports because it is international grounds

Or because he was unarmed.  In any case he can always point at her and grunt and let the on-duty officers do their job.

I know you are half joking here, but I wouldn't be suprised if the order was pretty close to accurate. I mean Sawyer is still Sawyer, even if he is a cop. This is a guy that let himself be tortured just to get a kiss from Kate when they were trying to get Shannon's inhaler.

And he didn't even have the inhaler!
