Brutality. Protests. Riots. #DefundThePolice. #NotAllCops. “If you don’t break the law, you don’t need to fear the police.”

Regardless of what you think about what’s happening now in cities across the entire country, I want to talk about the perceptions people have of law enforcement and how the most popular genre in television shapes the way we think about criminal justice.

Love them or hate them, the police procedural has shaped the perspective the general public holds of the police for generations. And probably not for the betterment of society. Let’s talk about why.
