Wait didnt they do this on the Wire?
Both The Wire and Homicide were based on Simon's book, which was based on real stories from police officers.
I prefer The Wire version, but this was a good show.

I guess it's plausible.

Hell yes, 420 intimidate and trick people into giving up their rights everyday

See, when cops abuse people with cruel jokes and hilarious irony, it's okay.

The Wire was less cheesy!

They did this on some other cop show in the 90s too, only instead of a copier it was a cellphone (which was still a pretty uncommon thing for people to have at the time). I think it was Law & Order but I'm not sure.
And one day it will be repeated as a smartphone app.
This version is special because of how dreary the rest of the series was. I don't think any other cop show comes close to using so much non-action to drive home the mental degeneration of its characters.
Listen, if your complaints about a complex, realistic police-show are that it depicts a dreary, non-active bureaucracy? Consider yourself a moron with pre-conceptions.
