Beliefs have consequences
This episode deserves a higher average review. It's not often that a TV series is the era of wildly liberal writers and performers. Show the consequences of thousands of pages rules, regulations, and laws that our police have to deal with every day. In this story a budding liberal idealist college student gets to ride along in a two-officer squad car. And while she thinks she's not getting to see much real police work. She gets her eyes open in what she sees as a situation where police are not protecting a woman from an abusive husband. That young woman learns the reality of all the tinkering that has been going on for decades with the law. And that those sometimes protect and sometimes don't. The Police Chief also finds himself dealing with an ideologue lawyer when one of his officers makes a misidentification that leads to a forceful arrest. A good one. But it's not hard to imagine that any liberals watching this will just see this as excuses for the police mistakes. I would hope that watchers would see the terrible position law enforcement is in. On every contact they have with the public. A very provocative episode.
