What tv has taught me - part 2 Cop shows

The hero can shoot with amazing accuracy and will only ever need one shot.
The backup squad may or may not hit anything but can make do with revolvers or rifles.
The villains cannot hit anything even with sub-machine guns - unless the group includes one of the 'cannon fodder' cop groups.

What tv has taught me - part 1 Cop shows

Cops shows teach you that in a cop's career, there are 4 particularly vunerable stages

4 - Rookie cop - first week on the job
3 - Veteran cop - last week on the job
2 - Newly married or about to be

and the single most dangerous is

1 - Cop who is expecting first child within one month.

If some cop is going to die, these will be the first to go.
