* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': In "New York's Finest," Karen Page drops by assistant district attorney Blake Tower's office to confront him with evidence that his boss, District Attorney Samantha Reyes, is crooked and will backstab him the moment trouble strikes her. Karen's visit is so that she can request his copy of the Punisher file. Tower steps out, "accidentally" leaving the Punisher file on his desk for Karen to steal.
-->'''Blake Tower:''' What makes you think I could help you, even if I wanted to?
-->'''Karen Page:''' You have information on the Punisher.
-->'''Blake Tower:''' That's classified.
-->'''Karen Page:''' Do I look like I'm going to post it on YouTube?

* In the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate universe's]] adaptation of the [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan Clone Saga]], Peter and Jessica Drew (his OppositeSexClone) find themselves trapped in a warehouse, with Nick Fury and a bunch of SHIELD soldiers there to arrest them. Before that can happen, Doctor Octopus comes waltzing in and smugly informs them all that he got off scot-free from all of the crimes he did ''and'' was able to more or less pervert Peter's life and all he stood for, by being signed on to run the CIA's cloning program and making a bunch of Spider-Man clone soldiers. Because of his protection with the CIA, Fury can't touch him. So Fury orders all of his soldiers to take a five minute coffee break, leaving no one to stop Peter and Jessica from beating the shit out of Doc Ock. Bonus points for Peter actually ''asking'' for Fury to invoke this trope, just so he can have a chance to beat Doc Ock up before being arrested.

See also CopsNeedTheVigilante for when the cops actively enlist civilians to work outside the law. Also compare IllPretendIDidntHearThat (an authority figure ignores an infraction while making it clear that it ''was'' noticed) and FakeStatic (a character pretends to not hear inconvenient orders or statements over a "noisy" communications channel). Overlaps with INeedToGoIronMyDog if the excuse is blatantly transparent. Not to do with a father [[DisappearedDad stepping out for coffee]].
