* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Danny's illegal actions that go beyond of criminals (i.e., threatening to shoot an unarmed and cuffed criminal) isn't seen as bad, given that Danny [[KarmaHoudini gets little comeuppance for his actions.]]



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Sarah Grant in "Bad Company." Giving her family's killer NoSympathy is quite understandable... initially. But bitterly and coldly continuing to do so even after knowing that he didn't intentionally do it (he was an untreated schizophrenic at the time) and is now lucid enough to try to be TheAtoner, is another thing entirely. And the icing on the cake is when she ultimately tells him that the only true way to make up for it is to commit suicide (despite her knowing that he already attempted just that in the past). Needless to say, it's pretty hard to watch her look so happy and unfazed at her wedding afterward, without one feeling bitter after all of that.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: UnintentionallyUnsympathetic:
** Danny Reagan whenever he is framed for performing corrupt actions. While the audience is supposed to feel sympathy for him given he's a good cop being railroaded by someone else, it's hard given the fact that Danny ''has'' committed DirtyCop actions (i.e., waterboarding, putting a gun to the back of an unarmed suspect, threatening to pull a suspect's medical tube, etc.), but has yet to face his comeuppance. His sympathy points are lost furthered given his statements on how people should be held accountable for their actions, but that doesn't apply to him.

** The Season 3 episode where Frank has to deal with a bigoted right-wing talk show host doing a show in the city. Mayor Poole and Rev. Potter want to cancel the show via LoopholeAbuse, but Frank allows the show to happen ... making sure that the security detail is assembled of African-American and Latino officers just to piss the off. Beginning in 2016,more and more white supremacists feel emboldened to spread their hate -- cultivating in a 2017 rally in Charlottesville, VA where one bigot ran his car into a crowd of peaceful activists protesting a white supremacy march.

* TheWoobie: Jamie has been put through ''a lot'': His fiance left him, he was tricked into a SuicideByCop, he watched his partner Vinny bleed to death, and he has strong feelings for Eddie, but they are forced to pretend they don't have them otherwise they'll be assigned new partners. There's also the fact that many cops think he's an EntitledBastard because his father is the PC, something that is ''not'' true, but because of the relation, he has yet to be promoted to detective (despite being qualified), and thus has [[TookALevelInJerkass taken a level in jerkass.]]
