* 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.

* 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).

The Rabid Cop might be [[DirtyCop casually dirty]], or [[KnightTemplar overbearingly self-righteous]], or anywhere in between, but they all have two things in common: a reckless disregard for civil rights, and an unwavering conviction that any person they've identified as "the perp" really is a perp (regardless of any contradicting evidence) and deserves to suffer. In a GoodCopBadCop routine, they usually take the "Bad Cop" ball and run clear out of the stadium with it. Likely to enjoy using TortureForFunAndInformation.

* Before Andy Sipowicz, there was Mick Belker on ''Series/HillStreetBlues''. Dude even barked and growled like a rabid dog. Bit people on a regular basis. "You gonna tell me what I want to know or am I gonna have to show you my ass!"

"You gonna tell me what I want to know or am I gonna have to show you my ass!"ass!" Unusually for this trope, Belker is actually a surprisingly nice guy despite having a short fuse and a bit of a NapoleonComplex; he invariably treats victims of crime with compassion and respect, and goes to great lengths to look after his elderly parents.

* 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.
