    But yeah, the vast majority of the cop shows portray the police and prosecutors as "good guys".
    And defense lawyers are portrayed as corrupt or evil, and when the defense lawyer isn't shown as evil, they are shown as having to prove the defendant's innocence.

    But these days, it seems that the media puts out the message that in a police officer must be a bad cop to be a good cop. We're expected to cheer for the police breaking the law. Dirty Harry was once shocking, but it's become the norm.
