'Law & Order: Fisher Price Unit' makes its debut this season

HOLLYWOOD - Leading law enforcement professionals throughout the US are becoming increasingly vocal about the sheer number of false portrayals depicted in police dramas.

"It's creating unrealistic expectations from the public regarding our capabilities," said Dana 'Danno' Starks, acting Chief of Police for the Chicago Police Department. "Even as the second-largest police department in the US, we seldom see things the way that that events are depicted on television."

The main areas of misrepresentation include: forensics capabilities, legal proceedings, level of violence, crime frequency, and criminal savvy.

"I am sure that doctors feel the same way when it comes to medical dramas shown on television," continued Boston Police Department Superintendent-in-Chief, Albert Goslin. He added, "The only exception to the rule might be the Hamish Macbeth TV series. On that one, the 'Wee Jock' character was especially spot-on."
