* while ''Series/TheWire'' largely focuses on detectives trying to make a case against major players in the drug trade, we occasionally see interactions between patrol cops and the corner kids who mostly view them as an annoyance or occupational hazard (barring the occasional [[PoliceBrutality violent bastard]]).

This is the beat cop who wears a uniform, patrols the neighborhood, controls traffic at cross-sections, and watches for infractions to the road code. Heroes who break the law whether unwittingly or out of childish mischief will likely end up on his wrong side, and be given a fine or taken to the local police precinct. Neither a RabidCop, a CowboyCop, nor an OldFashionedCopper, the MeddlesomePatrolman is still liable to be as annoying as the ObstructiveBureaucrat.

* There's a cop in ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' who shows up in a few episodes giving out tickets to characters ([[ButtMonkey Usually Squidward]]) for really petty crimes; in at least one episode where he shows up he blatantly ignores a more serious crime to ticket Squidward for littering.

** Funny story, actually; Paul [=McCartney=] wrote this one as a sarcastic love song to a woman who had given him a ticket not too long prior. When asked about the woman's name, his reply was something along the lines of "She looked like a Rita to me." It is no doubt merely coincidence that choosing that name made it easier to find rhymes for "parking meter"...
