WaPo Op-Ed: Cancel All Cop Shows


The Washington Post’s Alyssa Rosenberg is calling for an end to all police shows on television: CSI, Law & Order, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, etc. The ridiculousness continues.

Why do we need people to tell us how to think about entertainment? Would it be limited to tv series?

Amid all the anti-police rhetoric consuming the country right now, The Washington Post’s Alyssa Rosenberg added to the mix by calling for an end to all police shows on television: CSI, Law & Order, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, etc.

According to Rosenberg, canceling cop shows would be the best way for the entertainment industry to put their money where their mouth is when issuing statements about race relations and police brutality.

“There’s no question that it would be costly for networks and studios to walk away from the police genre entirely,” Rosenberg writes, as reported by Newsbusters. “Canceling Dick Wolf’s ‘Chicago’ franchise of shows would wipe out an entire night of NBC’s prime-time programming; dropping ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ and a planned spinoff would cut even further into the lineup.”

Rosenberg goes on to write how Hollywood and police departments have been collaborating on projects throughout the years, leading the industry to whitewash police shootings and valorize the police.

“For a century, Hollywood has been collaborating with police departments, telling stories that whitewash police shootings and valorizing an action-hero style of policing over the harder, less dramatic work of building relationships with the communities cops are meant to serve and protect,” she writes. “There’s a reason for that beyond a reactionary streak hiding below the industry’s surface liberalism.” More

It seems to me if people wanted cop shows to go away they just wouldn’t watch them. How about we ban all rap music glorifying violence, gang activity, and degrading women. Which is more dangerous?
