  • The Shield TV show

    I just started watching the Shield TV show and I like it. I just wish we could legally treat some of the dirtbags that way. The crime rate would go way down. My question or comment is this. Anyone notice that all of the "officers" wear there badge on right side of their chest. What's up with that. Any Dept in the US do that? Are they just stupid or just plain dumb.

      I started watching it and then I realized how fake and pseudo-masculine/macho it was.

        Its just a show... a fictional tv show... made for entertainment purposes only. If you cant enjoy it, then dont watch it.

          Head for the hills, he's returned! I agree by the way, it's just a TV show.

          The Shield used to have LAPD uniforms and badges for their actors but the LAPD withdrew their endorsement from the show. As a result, the show had had to use different badges and wear them on the wrong side so they wouldn't be copying the LAPD uniform.

              Other shows and movies have replicated the LAPD uniform. They can only do so when LAPD grants their consent though.

                haha. Yeah I know it's a fictitious show, but it was still kinda not my thing I guess.

                  I can't imagine why the LAPD would disavow this show just because the original title of the show was "Rampart" and it was loosely based on the real life events of the special drug enforcement squad of the LAPD rampart division which was later found to be totally corrupt where the officers were stealing drugs and hoarding money.

                    Oh you mean CRASH? Yeah, I can't imagine why LAPD would frown on that...

                      ths shield

                      I would not and could not work for a department that operated in this manner nor any of its officers. I wouldn't even call this entertainment. I always took pride and honor in serving the public, I think this show is a disgrace

                          same with military uniforms, they can't be duplicated for a show. If you look closely tho, usually the discrepancies are with the ribbons (ie more then one of the same type) and in the insignia worn on the collar.

                            That is not actually true. Theatrical productions are exempt from the "impersionation" laws. The reason you see so many screwups is because the produces don't care.
