** Near the end of season 1, two soldiers of the Barksdale organization end up shooting the undercover Kima Greggs during a hit on Orlando, who had become a police snitch. Kima survives, but the police crack down hard on the Barksdale Organzation, whose leaders acknowledge the utter stupidity of their men's improvised actions. Little Man, the one who actually shot Kima (acting impulsively without checking with his boss), gets [[YouHaveFailedMe disposed of quickly]], and every crook who hears about them shooting Kima reacts with WhatAnIdiot because of the massive, city wide crackdown it provokes.
** In season 3, the undercover officer Kenneth Dozerman is trying to buy drugs when the dealers he's talking to simply rob and shoot him instead. Dozerman survives, but once again it triggers a massive police reaction with plenty of PoliceBrutality being used. Bunk finds himself stuck with the redball of tracking down Dozerman's service weapon, while Major Colvin sees Dozerman's shooting as the impetus for the formation of Hamsterdam.
** Roland Pryzbylewski quits the force in season 3, when, while he and [=McNulty=] are responding to a distress call, he fails to properly identify himself as an officer and ends up fatally shooting a plain clothes officer in a case of night-time mistaken identity. He is brought up on administrative charges and suspended because the officer was African American, and the shooting is seen as being potentially racially motivated. Prez vehemently denies being a racist but due to the press and Baltimore's majority African American population, the story leaks out and prompts a hearing from both the courts and the Vanguard (Baltimore's African American police officer union). Prez is horrified at having killed another officer and quits the force despite his fellow MCU colleagues Daniels, Caroline Massey and Lester Freamon (all of whom are African-American) agreeing to testify that they do not believe Prez to be a racist.

** The first part of painting the infamous Stanfield Organization as [[DarkerAndEdgier more dangerous]] than any previous criminal empire 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. 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.

** One example is [[spoiler: Flack's LoveInterest, Angell]], who's shot in the season 5 finale while protecting a DonaldTrump[=/=]UsefulNotes/RupertMurdoch {{expy}}'s son (who was due to testify against him; [[spoiler: the killers turn out to be kidnappers, who knew this would put [[RedHerring immediate suspicion on their target's father]]]]). The episode also ends with [[spoiler: the bar they're holding a wake for her in being shot up in a drive-by]]. Nobody's killed (although Danny ends up in a wheelchair for a while), but it fits the trope in spirit.

* ''Literature/InDeath'' series: This has happened a few times, and when it does, you can bet that this a considered a MoralEventHorizon for the cops at least and maybe the reader. This happened in books like ''Ceremony In Death'', ''Survivor In Death'', ''Judgment In Death'', ''Treachery In Death'' and ''New York To Dallas''.
