* A non-shooting example in ''WesternAnimation/{{The Powerpuff Girls}}'' episode "Schoolhouse Rocked": When Lil' Arturo of the Gangrene Gang takes the spot for show-and-tell, he introduces to the class his most prized item, Maria Conchita-Theresa Rosalita (AKA Maria). The three girls, thinking he's carrying a knife, attempt to seize him despite Ms. Keane stressing that fighting is not allowed in the classroom, but it turns out Maria is just a styling comb -- albeit one that folds out, with a handle that looks like a switchblade.

* ''FamilyGuy'' has the episode "A Shot In the Dark" where Peter forms a neighborhood watch after his couch is "stolen" (due to him leaving it on the curb to use as an outdoor drinking couch). One night, he sees someone trying to break into Clevelands house, and when the figure reaches inside his pocket, Peter shoots him, only to discover that it was Cleveland Jr, who hadnt heard Peter ask him to step away from the window due to having his Ipod on, which was what he was reaching for. The entire affair turns into a hate crime debate (in reality, Peter could only see a dark shape and had no idea who it was, much less his skin color). Peter avoids jail only by a lawyer hired by Carter Pewterschmidt instead painting Cleveland as a dangerous thug, which Peter immediatly regrets and admits to shooting Cleveland Jr because he was scared, not out of racism, accepting jailtime. Cleveland, realizing Peter really didnt do it out of racism, confesses to the shooting, making it a black-on-black crime, [[TakeThat which immediatly makes the media lose interest and leave]].
* Season 2 of ''SouthPark'' has the episode "Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson", where the Nebraska police is laying siege to the house belonging to Cartmans grandmother due to an escaped Charles Manson having holed up there. When Manson decides to turn himself in, he sends Kenny out with a white flag...

** Sometimes this can be attributed to bad training. If you train an officer in a simulator to always fire at someone making a drawing motion (since it's always a gun in the simulation), then they will "sink the to the level of their training" when someone pulls an object on them and conditioned combat reflexes kick in. Some modern simulators now include subjects that draw non-gun objects to train officers to quickly differentiate on the fly to avoid this sort of problematic conditioned response.

* The main reason why toy firearms are always brightly colored or have a bright orange cap on the barrel are specifically to differentiate them from actual weapons. This is the same reason why [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Megatron]] is usually a tank nowadays. Of course, this won't protect you if you try something really dumb: Military and police personnel realize it takes no effort to [[http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-tucson/orange-tipped-toy-guns-a-good-idea-gone-bad paint a real gun's muzzle orange]], and they're not big fans of practical jokes in general.

* In a rather astounding example of incompetence, the LAPD in early 2013 was in the middle of a manhunt for SerialKiller Christopher Dorner when they stopped a blue Toyota truck and, suspecting it to be Dorner, immediately opened fire, injuring the driver, 47-year-old Margie Costanza, and critically wounding her 71-year-old mother, who was in the passenger seat. [[labelnote:*]]Dorner had previously been identified driving a Grey Nissan truck.[[/labelnote]] To compound on this mistake, less than an hour later, another police cruiser which was heading towards the shooting spotted a black Honda truck and proceeded to ram and open fire on the driver. None of the officers were charged with any crime.

* Controversy still persists over the shooting dead of three IRA members in Gibraltar by British special forces. The official justification is that it was feared one or all had access to bomb detonator controls which were small enough to be carried in a pocket or otherwise hand-held, and that they hadn't indicated surrender or displayed empty hands to the SAS team seeking to detain them. (Informed opinion is that this was a demonstration of intent not to Irish terrorists, but to a Spanish government that was making sabre-rattling noises over Gib's sovereignty. Not long after the Falklands War, this was a coded way of telling the Spanish that any military incursion would be met with resolution. Taking three terrorists out of circulation was secondary.)
