* RealitySubtext:
** Any episode with Reverend Potter in it highlights the levels of distrust between the police and the black communities, and some of them were produced around the same time that the "Black Lives Matter" movement - started in the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner - took off.
** Some elements of "Forgive and Forget" and its lead-in "Custody Battle", specifically an officer using an unauthorized chokehold on a suspect that led to the suspect's death, invoke the controversy against the NYPD for the death of Eric Garner, himself the victim of an unauthorized chokehold.
** "Loss of Faith" has the NYPD dealing with the possibility of retaliation from a rogue ex-cop who was terminated from their ranks. The story does seem to have parallels to the case of Christopher Dorner, who went on a shooting rampage against the Los Angeles Police Department after he thought he was wrongly terminated.
