** Ironically, when the series started, it was ''Olivia'' who was the borderline lawsuit waiting to happen, as she was the one who tended to browbeat people and assault suspects.

%%* Bad Cop in "The Lego Movie". DUH. ...To those who've seen the movie, at least.

%%* * Bad Cop in "The Lego Movie". DUH. ...To those who've seen His EstablishingCharacterMoment includes Good Cop giving Emmett a glass of water (after getting battered by B.C.) only for Bad Cop to instantly swat it away barking out "too late!" and carrying out his interrogation, and he uses absurd amounts of overkill to try to stop him from getting to the movie, at least.Kragle.


Added DiffLines:

* The titular ''Film/DirtyHarry'' Callahan tap-dances between being this and being a CowboyCop. He can be pretty damn brutal to crooks (to the point that when he's accused of PoliceBrutality by the Scorpio Killer on the first film, he points out that it's obvious the Killer is trying to set him up--because if it had actually been him, the Killer wouldn't have even been able to ''walk'' afterwards) he still tries to at least follow the rules for police combat encounters.
** The second film, ''Film/MagnumForce'', has a whole group of these as a DeliberatelyBadExample. They start the film by going after criminals that have gotten OffOnATechnicality, but they perform their exterminations with an absolute disregard for collateral damage (even killing fellow cops that get in the way), and Harry asks to them on the denouement what will happen when they eventually become bold enough [[DisproportionateRetribution to start shooting anybody they can classify as "criminal", even jaywalkers and owners of really messy dogs]], with the answer given to him being "we will do as we please".

* Richard Chance, in ''Film/ToLiveAndDieInLA'', is an already hot-headed Secret Service agent who goes off the rails after his partner gets killed. Over the course of the movie, he's brash with authority figures, doesn't like it when the rules get in the way of his plans, takes evidence without following protocol and resorts to ''blackmail and armed robbery'' to further his investigation. His antics [[spoiler:lead to the accidental death of an undercover FBI agent and his own killing]]. At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Vukovitch]] follows in his footsteps.

* John "Sleepy" Estes, tht titular ''Anime/MadBull34'', who currently graces the page with the picture on top. He doesn't does PoliceBrutality--he does Police ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Overkill]]'' (like carrying ''about a dozen hand grenades strapped like a loincloth under his pants'', just in case).

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/SinCity'': Even the Basin City cops who aren't [[DirtyCop actively corrupt]] or [[TheBadGuysAreCops on the payroll of the bad guys]] are usually pretty violent. For example, Lt. Liebowitz is perfectly fine with beating Hartigan right back into a coma in order to get a phoney confession from him (Hartigan still refuses), and he deals with the Colonel by just shooting him in face, though that guy ''really'' had it coming.

* Perhaps the ultimate example is ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'''s nemesis, Judge Death. He starts off his time in his reality's judge force [[HangingJudge executing perps for minor crimes]] (untied shoelaces, making too much noise, loitering...). ''And he only gets worse''. Eventually, he reasons that all crime is committed by the living, [[AllCrimesAreEqual therefore life is a crime]]. Cue the extermination of his world's entire population and his attempts to do this to Dredd's universe. Oddly enough, even when they have the actual capacity to be JudgeJuryAndExecutioner, this is averted by the Mega-City One Judges and ''especially'' Dredd--like any actual real police force, they frown greatly at members using excessive force without due justification and even so much as a single baton strike too many can put them in a whole heap of trouble with [[InternalAffairs the SJS]], if not worse. Of course, that's not to say Justice Department doesn't have any bad eggs. The likes of Judge Manners, who sodomises a juve with his daystick, or Judge Kruger, whose preference for using his daystick is so ingrained into him, he plants drugs on an innocent woman he beat to death, are rife within the department.

* Gotham City Police Detective Harvey Bullock from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' dips into this quite a bit - which makes it [[{{Hypocrite}} very strange that he also often scolds Batman for being a vigilante]]. Of course, this varies DependingOnTheAuthor; also, it could be that Bullock just resents Batman for making the police look incompetent.

Of course, this varies DependingOnTheAuthor; also, it could be that Bullock just resents Batman for making the police look incompetent. Also DependingOnTheWriter, ''Batman'' is seen as this to the rest of the superhero community, performing HighAltitudeInterrogation like nobody's business among other borderline-sociopathic steps to keep [[WretchedHive Gotham's]] crime in check.
