NYPD Blue, and most TV "Cop Dramas", glorify police brutality. Then again, so do most "ra ra" war movies, etc.. This fiction of the out-of-control authority figure who doesn't play by the rules and takes justic into his own hands is some kind of sexy idol. I think it's disgusting. In the real world these guys are cowboys who usually don't know what the hell they're doing and just go around showing their dick to the world by slapping people around. These cop shows need to show a lot more cases of cops beating people up who did nothing wrong.
