Added DiffLines:

* MissingWhiteWomanSyndrome: Noted in a number of episodes, but heavily discussed (and ultimately deconstructed) in "White Balance", which focuses on two missing teens: a black male and a white female. The disparity in media coverage is heavily featured, as well as the UnfortunateImplications of the boy suddenly getting more media attention, but only when it looks like he might be behind the girl's disappearance. Famous for its ending - [[spoiler: a NoEnding in which it's revealed only one of the teens was found alive, but not which teen.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForCheating: "Midnight Sun" features as the victim Greg Pritchard, supposedly a loving family man but whom witnesses soon report having seen at a diner in the company of an attractive young woman. However, a trace on the woman's credit card reveals the truth: [[spoiler: she is a deputy U.S. Marshal, and Pritchard's handler in the Witness Protection Program.]]

* FakeAmerican: Half the damn cast. Malone and Spade are played by Aussies, and Johnson is played by a Brit.

* HollywoodPudgy: One episode had, as the victim, a girl with a noticeable but reasonable amount of heft to her. Needless to say she was treated as though she were morbidly obese: she had only one friend, was constantly terrorized for her weight, and had massive self-esteem issues.

* PaedoHunt: A more literal application of the trope happens in one episode. A young looking woman poses as underage bait, a fledging, wheelchair bound unofficial cop (an accident prevented him from getting a badge), and a cameraman ([[RapeAsBackStory who was later revealed to have been raped during a home invasion when he was 12]]) set up a sting operation to catch pedophiles, a la ToCatchAPredator. Unlike the Chris Hanson manned operation, this version is more vigilante based and not exactly fool-proof to prevent people from escaping, which one guy managed to do. The cop goes after him and gives him a ReasonYouSuckSpeech, which drove the pedophile to [[DrivenToSuicide shoot himself with the cop's gun]]. [[ItGotWorse To make things even better]], when the cameraman realized the cop was about to tell the police about what happened, he tried to kill him to shut him up, though was unsuccessful. By episode's end, the cop survived the assault but by killing the cameraman.
