** JurisdictionFriction can be [[RealityIsUnrealistic exaggerated]] by fiction. While tensions obviously do exist between different law enforcement departments, they can and do work together more-or-less peacefully on a regular basis (and indeed have to -- otherwise, how's the system supposed to function?). The fact that they're on their best behaviour can be explained by the fact that they're being filmed and so probably don't want their friends and families to see them as "that obnoxious asshole".

* Many of these can also be explained by the simple fact that almost ''anyone'', much less a police officer, is likely to try and put forward the best possible version of themselves if they're being followed by someone filming their day-to-day lives, and especially if that footage is going to be shown to millions of people across the world on television. Would you want your friends and family to see you on national television being a lazy, incompetent boob?

Simply put, he was brought to trial, but none of the charges would stick, so they had to resort to JusticeByOtherLegalMeans. Was he convicted of tax evasion like Al Capone was. Who can say, reallY?...

[[WMG: The toyless characters were created for the cartoon and weren't Hasbro's property]]
While action figure lines do tend to shy from making females, that never stopped Hasbro from making them in the GI Joe line. But beyond the four female characters, Squeaky also failed to get a toy- and to make matters worse, the cancelled series of the toys also lacked them. It may have been a matter of [=DiC=] studios creating a few characters for the series. Hasbro would've had to pay money to make toys of those characters as they were the property of another company, for a line that was already short-lived and not a huge success. [=DiC=] actually had a major habit of doing this with licensed shows, a problem that still persists with licensing of certain characters or model sheets to this day for various companies.

** And of course, it wouldn't be because the police ARE the good guys in the real world (for the most part).

** The [[MagicalDatabase Police Computer]] is always right. All arrest warrants really are valid, all stolen cars really are stolen, all expired licenses really have expired.
