*** Wilson Fisk has numerous NYPD cops on his payroll who are so corrupt they're willing to murder fellow officers who aren't on the take. And as Det.

*** Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes fatally shoots Detective Rafael Scarfe, one of the corrupt cops in his pocket, after Scarfe tries to double-cross him. Scarfe lives long enough to disclose information incriminating Cottonmouth to Luke Cage and Misty Knight before he dies. Unfortunately, the information is useless on account of Scarfe's death, and Cottonmouth walks.
*** As part of his and Mariah Dillard's plan to manipulate the NYPD into buying [[AbnormalAmmo Judas bullets]] (the one thing that can harm Luke Cage), Willis "Diamondback" Stryker kills a police officer by punching him in the chest with a high-power glove, the blow being so hard [[MegatonPunch that the cop is thrown backwards 20 feet and his chest is caved in]]. He then flees the scene shouting "[[LargeHam I'M LUKE CAGE!]]" The police respond with aggressive brutality against Harlem residents, with Mariah exploiting the in-custody beating of one teenage boy to rally the public against the NYPD so that they'll feel the need to bulk-buy the "freak" killing Judas bullets.

* ''Series/MajorCrimes'' has the Reverend Daniel Price, known as "Reverend Cop Killer" to the LAPD. As a [[GangBanger member of the Bloods]] he murdered an off-duty police officer during an armed robbery, but the case was dismissed with prejudice due to one of the investigating officers perjuring himself on the stand. In the present he claims to be a changed man and has become a pastor and community leader, [[spoiler:which turns out to be true in season four's five-part episode "Hindsight"]].

** The first part of painting the infamous Stanfield Organization as [[DarkerAndEdgier more dangerous]] than the Barksdales is the fact that they're perfectly willing to use violence against the police. In one episode, Herc and Carver are sent to tell Marlo Stanfield to show up at a parley that Major Colvin is doing with various drug gangs in the Western District for his "Hamsterdam" project. When Marlo refuses, Herc gets up in his face over this disrespect....and then Carver notices that the various other members of Marlo's gang are all starting to reach for weapons, obviously with the intent of killing both Herc and Carver if they don't back off. Carver gets Herc to back off, but the fact that the Stanfield gang has absolutely no compunction about killing cops proves to be an early hint about just how ruthless and bloodthirsty the group will turn out to be.

** "Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa" sees an SFPD homicide detective get poisoned at a Christmas party. It appears to have been a case of bad luck as the detective drank poisoned port that had been delivered to the station earlier that day and seemingly was meant to kill Captain Stottlemeyer. After the investigation clears the original suspect (a man whose brother Stottlemeyer had killed in a bank robbery, and who'd fired at Stottlemeyer in a parking lot a few months prior to the party), Monk finds that the detective murdered was the intended target, and he was killed by his jealous ex-girlfriend, a fellow police officer who couldn't stand that he wanted to get back together with his wife.
