Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Cholo Word Of The Day - Chota

La Chota is very similar to La Jura a previous word of the day. It seems we have a good number of word to describe the fuzz.

Word:
Chota

Meaning According To DT:
police, jura, fuzz, 5-O

Used in a sentence:
"Meli, si vez a la chota, run porque sino te meten a el bote."

"Porque chingados me van a encerrar, si I haven't did nothing."

Translation according to DT:
"Melinda, if you see the nation's finest, run because they will incarcerate you!"

"Why would those civil servants put me in jail, I haven't done anything?"

Of course it doesn't. "Por qué chingados..." means like "why the hell," or "why the fuck." It translates as, "why the hell would they put me in jail?"
