* ThePunishment: Vic, for all of his sins and magnificent bastardom and success at manipulating everyone around him, is rewarded by [[spoiler:being given a $60,000 a year job as a Federal Law Enforcement Agent, with his supervisor (the one who was bamboozled into giving Vic immunity for his laundry list of sins and said job as an Agent of the US Government) having to neutralize the monster she empowered by giving him a cushy, if not unimportant, desk job for at least three years to keep him off the streets. It's also stated that, on top of her own duties, said supervisor will have to devote the next three years of her life, micromanaging Vic in order to make sure he stays neutered as well as bait him into quitting / committing an offense that would void his job contract/immunity deal, since if Vic manages to somehow last the full three years, his immunity becomes irrevocable and he can '''never ever''' be held accountable for his crimes. On the other hand, they can promptly throw him out. And with his laundry list public knowledge and his old nemesis slated to become the new mayor, his reputation as a Dirty, DirtyCop id permanent.]]
* PyrrhicVillainy: [[spoiler:Vic's final fate. He certainly fares better than most of the others. He has a well-paying job in federal law enforcement and full immunity for his sins, but his victory is hollow. Vic has betrayed all of his friends, who are either dead or now rotting in jail. His ex-wife and their children have gone into the Witness Protection Progam far away from him, while his mistress is determined that Vic will have nothing to do with their son, who will inevitably learn all about what a monster their father was. Furthermore, Vic's biggest strengths (his charisma and people skills) have been permanently tarnished, due to the fact that his KarmaHoudini required him to confess to all of his sins and as such; everyone knows now that he murdered a fellow law enforcement officer and betrayed one of his proteges in exchange for said immunity. And while he still has a job in law enforcement, the show portrays it as a three year prison sentence. He's working for people who can't stand the sight of him and intend to make his life such a hell he'll screw up, since the first and slightest violation of any term nullifies the deal. So not only is his supervisor is going to have a lot of help and support, they won't have to worry about being held accountable for any mistake he makes.]]

The focus of the show revolves around Mackey as he leads an elite anti-gang task force known as "[[TheSquad The Strike Team]]". The LAPD tasked the Strike Team with the monumental job of keeping the streets of Farmington safe from drug dealers and gang members. Mackey and the other members of the close-knit group generally go about their task with violent efficiency and a little corruption on the side: the team will often enter into Faustian deals with Farmington's criminal elements--which give said criminals free reign to run the city's drug trade--in exchange for bribes, intel on other gang members, and a promise to keep their illegal antics at reasonable levels to ensure an illusion of peace.

Other aspects of the show deal with the rank-and-file members of the Farmington Precinct. The most notable of these cast members, detectives [[BunnyEarsLawyer Holland "Dutch" Wagenbach]] and [[TheHeart Claudette Wyms]], deal with non-gang-related instances of rape and murder within the district. They serve as the moral opposite of Vic Mackey and the Strike Team, which leads to tension between the two sides when they work together on related cases (or when Dutch and Claudette have to clean up the inevitable fallout from the Strike Team's corrupt antics while trying to prove Vic's corruption). Several patrol officers--including [[TeamMom Danielle "Danny" Sofer]], her protegé [[BlackBestFriend Julien Lowe]], and rookie cop [[HiddenDepths Tina Hanlon]]--find themselves struggling to advance up the ranks while dealing with the unappreciated job of keeping Farmington safe.

A hyperactive Shakespearian counterpart to the Dickensian ''Series/TheWire'', '''''The Shield''''' follows a team of police officers working at The Barn, an experimental police precinct situated within the fictional Los Angeles district of Farmington. Although the show revolves around corrupt detective [[AntiHero Vic Mackey]] (Creator/MichaelChiklis), it gained a reputation as an ensemble show as the series explored the goings-on within the Farmington Precinct (including the various power struggles and interpersonal drama surrounding Mackey in the midst of the chaos and intrigue).
