* MurderIsTheBestSolution: The whole franchise is loaded to the gills with people that get a bit too driven with their desire to take out an obstacle ([[AccidentalMurder accidentally]] or not). To provide some examples:
** "Cats In The Cradle": An eleven-year-old girl being denied one cat from the local CrazyCatLady (who doesn't want to part with it, even after the kid points out she has a dozen and it's not as if the cat will be taken far away because they live on the same block) drives the kid to bash the woman's brains in and [[CreepyChild be completely unapologetic about it]].

** "Go To Hell" in the end [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane leaves up in the air]] whether or not [[spoiler:Amy Macalino was so much of a [[EnfanteTerrible crazy sociopath]] that she honestly thought acting possessed by the Devil (complete with struggling through an exorcism) was a good way to create an InsanityDefense for the murder of her parents and younger sister, or if she was ''actually'' possessed.]]

** The post-"Fannysmackin'" arc regarding Greg's AccidentalMurder of Demitrius James in the defense of a man he and a mob were beating up has Sanders trying to defend himself in court and, overall, what looked like an open-and-shut case (Greg saw the crowd, he tried to scare them off with his car, James tried to attack instead, he hit him with the car because he couldn't brake in time, it's all clear) turns into a circus of accusing Greg of alleged PoliceBrutality, racism and even the possibility of having been a DrunkDriver during the act (thus ending with the James family forming IrrationalHatred for cops in general and Greg in specific) because of a jackass juror that wishes "all of the facts being brought to light" and won't vote until he hears them (even interrupting testimonies to question the witnesses).

* TheButlerDidIt: In "Random Acts of Violence", Nick is called to investigate who murdered the supervisor of a high tech company in the sealed computer room, with only three other employees in the floor outside. After thoroughly investigating them, he realizes that the real "murderer" is an AC repairman working in the room directly above the computer room, whom nobody had noticed. He dropped his hammer accidentally, it fell through an air-vent, hit the victim fatally on the head, and was then retrieved by the repairman, who said nothing to keep himself out of trouble.

* DisasterDominoes:
** In [[spoiler:"Chaos Theory"]], the solution to an apparent kidnapping, murder and disposal of a body in the dumpster turns out to be nothing but this, and therefore not a murder at all. [[spoiler: A college girl accidentally dropped an object through the garbage shut, went to the pail to retrieve it, a speeding car accidentally hit the pail, which injured her and caused her to fall inside, then her body was compacted and brought to the dump by the garbage truck]]. The episode ends with the victim's family being incredibly upset by the revelation and announcing that they will hire a P.I. to uncover the "real" murderer.
** In "Random Acts of Violence", Warrick becomes convinced that the murderer of his OldMentor's daughter is his HighSchoolBullyAllGrownUp, but all evidence pointing to him is circumstancial and he's released. When Warrick tracks him down to berate him, he is followed by his mentor, who beats the guy up, and gets himself arrested and charged with assault. This causes the neighborhood to close the facilities where the mentor coached local troubled kids and to disband their football team, implicitely making all those kids get into trouble later. [[spoiler:It turns out that while the bully stole from the mentor's home, he was actually innocent of the murder.]]
