This paper will discuss how media portrays the police as an organization that can do no wrong. By viewing this angle of the police through the media, we can see how this is a myth perpetuated by TV shows, Hollywood movies such as "Dirty Harry" and other ways that portray the police as never committing crimes of abuse. Citing these examples and making it clear how this is a myth within the police community leads us to a better understanding of reality within the criminal justice format.
