    Because it's historically been a blue collar job requiring no more than a high school diploma and 20.5 years of age?

    Considering the epic blunders constantly witnessed in extremely serious real life cases, I wouldn't hold TV cops in lower regard.

    I think it’s authority figures on the whole. Police, Government officials, they all seem to be really stupid and obtuse in basically all movies and shows where they aren’t the main characters.
