Added DiffLines:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: When the movie came out, many viewers and critics were skeptical of the scenes where Jake Hoyt smokes marijuana laced with PCP and Alonzo's explanation of how a cop who didn't take drugs offered to him on the street would be ID'd as police and murdered. David Ayer responded in an interview by holding up a highlighted section of the LAPD's rules and regulations; it stated that officers were allowed to use narcotics in very specific undercover situations, and hewed closely to what Alonzo told Jake.

* ContrivedCoincidence: Alonzo leaves Jake to die with exactly the wrong set of gangbangers. (Possibly a subversion as the plan seemed to be to set Jake up if he turned out not to be dirty and perhaps Alonzo remembered [subconsciously?] the name of the gang that the girl had mentioned from earlier and simply selected the easy option to dispose of his problem.)
