Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A staple of the Criminal Procedural when the writers want to create a "This Time, It's Personal" episode. Pretty much Exactly What It Says on the Tin: a criminal kills a cop and the dead officer's colleagues have to avenge him via a Cop Killer Manhunt. These episodes frequently end with Police Brutality, as cop killing is very serious business. When the cops find the cop killer, they don't treat him very well. Not to mention that they're more likely to have "accidents" or be "driven to suicide" at some point between arrest, trial, and imprisonment. Or even just make no effort to capture the cop killer alive in the first place. Conversely, a cop killer will likely be regarded as particularly notorious by fellow criminals (which may very well be why the cop killer does it in the first place).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })If the criminal is purposely going after cops who previously arrested him, this can overlap with Rage Against the Legal System. Other times, cops may be killed in the line of duty by trigger-happy criminals. Of course, they're in particular danger if they're three days away from retirement.
While this is often a villain trope, there are cases that this trope may be applied to an Anti-Hero or a vigilante (particularly if the character suffered some form of Police Brutality that would result in the Anti-Hero or vigilante hunting down cops as well). If The Bad Guys Are Cops this may be one way for them to meet their fate. Still, it's very rarely condoned, if ever; killing a representative of law and justice is generally agreed to be something of a Moral Event Horizon, for obvious reasons.
The inverse of Killer Cop, a cop who is a murderer, although in some cases they do overlap. Particularly with cases of a Dirty Cop killing an honest one who's discovered his crimes, or the local Vigilante Man making an Asshole Victim of a Killer Cop. See also Police Brutality and Pay Evil unto Evil, possible reactions by the police when they find the cop killer.

The Elite Squad: When a bunch of crooks mortally wound an off-duty member of the BOPE (the Brazilian equivalent of a SWAT Team and quite the Badass Army), they have a massive Oh, Crap! moment and rush him to the hospital (where he dies anyway). Captain Nascimento, the narrator mentions that the crooks are clever to be afraid, because BOPE's reaction to such a death would be a no-holds-barred manhunt... which happens on the third act of the movie, with tortures galore.

Terminator:
The T-800 in The Terminator massacres an entire police station in an attempt to get to Sarah Connor. Radio reports later reveal that quite predictably a nationwide manhunt was started for the mysterious gunman. The LAPD are still looking for the shooter more than ten years later in Terminator 2: Judgment Day to get justice for the officers who were killed on that night.
Terminator Salvation starts with the execution of Marcus Wright. We find out quickly that he killed a cop.
Supplemental materials enlighten that it was the final result of a drug-fueled Plethora of Mistakes that also took Marcus' brother (the police killed him, Marcus fired back). Even After the End and being reborn by Unwilling Roboticisation, Wright feels he's so past the Moral Event Horizon he deserves whatever he gets.
In Terminator Genisys:
The T-1000 that pursues Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor in 1984 impales a cop while going after Reese, then tries to go after Officer O'Brien, who is only saved when Sarah arrives and intervenes.
The T-3000 in 2017 does off several cops in its pursuit of Sarah and Reese.

Adam-12: "Elegy For a Pig." The actual crime (a beat partner and close friend of series protagonist Jim Malloy being killed in a gunfight with burglary suspects) is not seen, but the aftermath of the police officer's death is the one that takes center stage. To wit: When a "cop" gets killed, you've also taken someone who has a family, who is a key part of the community and who is a friend and valued co-worker who follows the sworn duty to keep people safe and stop the bad guys.

In "Officer Down" a patrol officer is mortally wounded when she blunders into the path of mafia-affiliated diamond thieves while coming back from lunch. The Mafia itself joins in hunting them down, because cop killers put the whole department on edge and make life difficult. Grandpa Henry Reagan remarks that when he was on the force the mafia even had explicit rules that, outside of certain circumstances, cops were off-limits. The killer gets cornered, tries to shoot his way out, and is hosed down with lead by several detectives and an ESU team. While searching for the killer, Danny finds and arrests an accomplice (whose father is a retired NYPD officer), who he takes to a spot on the water, then explains 50 years earlier the man's father took a cop killer to that exact spot, shot him twice in the head and dumped the body in the river. It was ruled an accidental death. Danny then explains the man's father would likely disown him if he killed a cop and was executed in such a fashion. This breaks the man into giving the real killer.

The Defenders (2017):
Jessica Jones (2015)
Will Simpson's sanity begins to slip after he's almost blown up by Kilgrave and ends up taking combat enhancers from Dr. Kozlov, who runs the IGH program Simpson used to be a part of. He stumbles upon Oscar Clemons, a detective two years from mandatory retirement with full pension, at the CDC facility where Jessica had tried to isolate Kilgrave. He grills Clemons for information about Trish's whereabouts and the whereabouts of Kilgrave's father, and after getting what he needs, Simpson shoots Clemons in the face before burning down the facility.
Kilgrave takes an entire precinct hostage and orders the officers to point their guns at each other or their own heads, and threatens to make them shoot each other/themselves if Jessica does anything to him. A season later, Detective Costa recounts how terrifying the incident was and how he had nightmares that only stopped when Kilgrave died.
Jessica herself accidentally kills in self-defense Dale Holiday, a corrections officer assigned to guard her mother and who turns out to be a serial killer who loves torturing inmates for his own amusement. Those that defy his authority, he murders them, makes their deaths look like suicides, and collects their numbers as trophies. To cover up her presence, Jessica stages his death to look like a suicide. That said, Dale turns out to have not been much better with his colleagues, none of whom are saddened to hear about his death.
When cornered by Detectives Eddy Costa and Ruth Sunday in Trish's hospital room, Alisa disarms and takes Sunday hostage, then leaps out the window, dragging Sunday to her death.
Daredevil (2015):
Wilson Fisk has numerous NYPD cops and FBI agents on his payroll who are so corrupt they're willing to murder fellow officers who aren't on the take. Fisk also has no qualms about having the corrupt cops and agents on his payroll killed when they become liabilities.
"Into the Ring": Clyde Farnum, a guard who owes money to Fisk, is threatened by James Wesley into attempting to hang Karen Page in her jail cell. When the attempt fails due to Karen clawing out one of his eyes, Fisk has Farnum bailed out, and then killed by a hitman who stages his death to look like a suicide.
"Condemned": Officer Sullivan, a rookie with just six months on the job, stumbles upon Matt Murdock and a wounded Vladimir Ranskahov in an abandoned building. Despite Matt's efforts to talk him into leaving, Sullivan calls in a hostage situation, forcing Matt to knock him out and handcuff him to a pole. This ends up summoning numerous cops to the scene including Christian Blake and Carl Hoffman, a pair of corrupt detectives who Matt just witnessed killing one of Vladimir's men in an interrogation room for saying Fisk's name. Blake has become a liability to Fisk as in the time since that incident, Matt has attacked Blake, broke his right arm, and stolen his cell phone, which contained the addresses of Vladimir's stashhouses. While Blake is trying to shoo away an increasingly suspicious Ben Urich, an ESU sniper in Fisk's employ suddenly opens fire on the cops, critically wounding Blake with a bullet to the chest and killing two uniformed cops nearbynote The latter two cops are established to have been shot to cover up the fact that Blake specifically was being targeted. The ESU team that enters the abandoned building, meanwhile, kills Officer Sullivan by cutting his throat with a knife.
"Shadows in the Glass": Because Detective Blake survived the attempt on his life, Fisk and Wesley know that he'll probably snitch on them. So they threaten Hoffman into killing Blake by injecting a syringe of poison into his IV. Matt shows up and overpowers Hoffman, but is unable to get anything out of Blake before he dies. Hoffman, wracked with guilt over the incident, is scooped up by Leland Owlsley and hidden away as a bargaining chip. When Fisk learns of Hoffman's location, he sends a team of corrupt cops to kill Hoffman, but Matt manages to stop them.
"Daredevil": Multiple FBI agents and NYPD cops are gunned down by the paramilitary team that are hired to free Fisk from the armored van transporting him to jail.
In season 2, we learn that Frank Castle's family was killed in a three-way shootout between three gangs. Frank's family's deaths were all covered up by the medical examiner, but when Karen interviews him, he tells her that he also disappeared one more body: an undercover DEA agent, whose presence at the scene would've made it established that the whole shootout was a police sting gone bad. That is, until it's revealed in The Punisher (2017) that the whole shootout was a smokescreen set up by federal operatives seeking to kill Frank for threatening to blow the whistle on war crimes he witnessed in his tour in Afghanistan.
"A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen": Nobu's lookouts on the roof of the warehouse where they are holding Karen and a bunch of other Daredevil survivors, end up killing the first pair of cops to respond after Karen activates Turk Barrett's tracking bracelet, by shooting them with arrows.
Dex makes his introduction in the second episode of season 3 singlehandedly wiping out an Albanian hit squad that ambushes the FBI convoy transporting Fisk to an FBI safehouse. The unit manages to kill five FBI agents and wound several more before Dex kills them all.
This ends up being how Ray Nadeem learns Fisk's corruption of the FBI isn't limited to Dex. He and OPR Agent Winn visit his SAC, Tammy Hattley, at her house, and Nadeem breaks his suspicions about Dex. Too late for him, Hattley is also working for Fisk, and proceeds to kill Winn with Nadeem's gun. Fisk's fixer Felix Manning then enters the room, pockets Nadeem's gun and the tape recording of the interview, and promptly blackmails Nadeem into working for Fisk as well.
"Reunion" marks the only occasion in season 3 where Fisk personally kills someone with his bare hands instead of hiring someone else to do his dirty work. In this case, Fisk beats one of his FBI bodyguards to death for informing him that Nadeem has gone rogue and prevented Dex from finishing off Karen Page as revenge for James Wesley's death. He then sends his men to Nadeem's house to get rid of Nadeem and his family, but Matt shows up in time to help Nadeem take them down.
In the second to last episode of season 3, Dex kills Ray Nadeem on Vanessa's orders, to keep him from talking after Fisk thwarts Nelson & Murdock's attempt to have Nadeem speak out against him in front of a grand jury. This ends up being Fisk's undoing, as Matt gets Felix Manning (who was in the room when Vanessa gave the order) to spill the beans, allowing him to blackmail Fisk into leaving him, Karen and Foggy alone (knowing that Fisk's love for Vanessa is his greatest weakness). On top of that, Nadeem is wise enough to record a confession video on his phone, that he sends to his wife prior to his death with instructions for the video to be plastered over the Internet, in which he apologizes to them for letting them down and also gives an outline of the extortion racket Fisk has set up using the FBI agents as his enforcers. And due to Nadeem being dead, the confession video (which would otherwise be easy for Fisk to discredit) is admissible in court per the "dying declaration" exemption rule.
Luke Cage (2016):
Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes fatally shoots Misty Knight's corrupt partner Rafael Scarfe, after Scarfe tries to double-cross him. Scarfe lives long enough to disclose information incriminating Cottonmouth to Luke and Misty before he dies. Unfortunately, the information is useless without a living Scarfe, so Cottonmouth walks. The fallout continues into season 2, where Misty deals with many convictions obtained by Scarfe being overturned due to being tainted.
As part of his and Mariah Dillard's plan to manipulate the NYPD into buying Judas bullets (the only thing that can penetrate Luke Cage), Willis "Diamondback" Stryker murders a random police officer. He walks up to a cop who is buying socks from a street vendor, and punches him with a high-power glove, which throws the officer backwards 20 feet and instantly kills him. He then flees the scene shouting "I'M LUKE CAGE!" The police respond with aggressive brutality against Harlem residents, with Mariah exploiting the in-custody beating of one teenage boy to rally the public against the NYPD so that they'll feel the need to bulk-buy the "freak" killing Judas bullets.
In season 2, Captain Thomas Ridenhour has managed to turn Shades' childhood friend and prison lover Darius "Comanche" Jones into an informant who reports to him information about Mariah. Shades becomes suspicious of Comanche's random disappearing acts and eventually catches him in one such meeting with Ridenhour. Comanche, who's tried to cover his ass by claiming Sugar is the snitch, abruptly shoots Ridenhour dead and tries to lie to Shades. But Shades doesn't buy it, and proceeds to shoot Comanche with Ridenhour's gun, intent on making it look like the two men shot and killed each other. Except, he botches the coverup because he is unable to bear letting Comanche slowly bleed out, and decides to grant him a swifter death by shooting him a second time with Ridenhour's gun.
The Punisher (2017)
The reason Frank Castle's family was killed was because Frank executed Dinah Madani's partner Ahmed Zubair on the orders of William Rawlins. Zubair was an Afghan National Police officer who discovered that fellow members of the illegal black ops unit Frank was a part of, like Rawlins, Colonel Schoonover, and Billy Russo, were trafficking heroin into the United States inside the bodies of KIAs, and using the profits to finance illegal black ops programs. Rawlins and Schoonover then ordered Frank be assassinated because they were led to believe Frank was the one who sent Micro a videotape of the Zubair assassination, as opposed to Gunner Henderson, the one who actually made the recording.
Once Frank is drawn back in to hunting down the people who ordered the death of his family, his first victim is Carson Wolf, the Special Agent in Charge of the DHS's New York City field office and Dinah Madani's current boss, and who, according to information dug up by Karen Page, was involved in the coverup of David Lieberman's faked "death". After torturing Wolf to get information on David, Frank breaks his neck.
Billy Russo and several Private Military Contractors on his payroll ambush Dinah Madani and her SWAT team when Dinah feeds them false information leading them to a warehouse where they think Frank will be making a gun buy. Most of the SWAT team is killed, as are all of Russo's men. Russo himself is approached by Madani's partner Sam Stein after fleeing into a nearby lot, and when Sam unmasks him, Russo proceeds to stab Sam to death with a retractable blade concealed under his right sleeve.
In the season 1 finale, Russo nonchalantly guns down DHS agents sent to arrest him at his pad as he goes out seeking out Frank for a final showdown.

CSI: NY:
One example is Flack's Love Interest, Angell, who's shot in the season 5 finale while protecting a Donald Trump/Rupert Murdoch expy's son (who was due to testify against him; the killers turn out to be kidnappers, who knew this would put immediate suspicion on their target's father). The episode also ends with the bar they're holding a wake for her in being shot up in a drive-by. Nobody's killed (although Danny ends up in a wheelchair for a while), but it fits the trope in spirit.
Aiden also counts, despite no longer being on the team. They were dead set on finding the perp and Danny was willing to beat up the guy he thought did it. Mac's speech in the beginning has a double meaning. He's talking about the dead Marine, being one himself, but it clearly shows with Aiden too. " You attack one, you attack us all.".
Mac himself was a variant in the season 8 finale, having been shot In the Back after stumbling into a drug store robbery. He only nearly died, but the NYPD's reaction was largely the same as in a straight example.

RoboCop (1987): Clarence Boddicker is a notorious crimelord. In addition to all his heinous crimes, he's killed 32 police officers, a number that is upped to 33 when he kills Alex Murphy. Killing Alex is Boddicker's undoing as OCP proceeded to take Alex's body to turn him into the first successful RoboCop, who (after regaining his memories) goes on a one-man Cop Killer Manhunt that resulted in Boddicker's death.

RoboCop (2014): The plot is kicked off when Alex Murphy and his partner Jack Lewis, while in the midst of doing an undercover buy with notorious arms dealer Antoine Vallon, are sold out by dirty cops on Vallon's payroll. A shootout unfolds and while Alex and Lewis manage to kill the henchmen that Vallon sics on them, Lewis is shot in the shoulder and badly wounded. Knowing that Alex will double down on him and go after the cops he owns, Vallon attempts to kill him by blowing up his car. Alex manages to survive in spite of being critically wounded, and Dr. Norton at Omnicorp decides to use Alex as a test for the company's plans to bring human-robot hybrids to American law enforcement. Once Alex overcomes Omnicorp's tempering, this bites Vallon in the ass as, much like the original Murphy and Boddicker, the new Murphy proceeds to go on a one-man Cop Killer Manhunt and kills Vallon.

Castle:
A variation in 'Love Me Dead' where the victim is an A.D.A. rather than a cop. It's treated the same way by the cops at the scene, though.
Subverted in 'Almost Famous'. Castle and Beckett respond to an "officer down" call, but it turns out the victim is a male stripper in a police officer costume.

This is the main reason why the titular protagonist of Empowered just gets tied up a lot. The oft-referred-to "unwritten rules" against killing or raping a superhero means that the majority of mooks, henchmen and lower-tier villains do not want to get branded as a "cape killer", because it will drive the rest of the hero community to come after them with extreme prejudice. This is why the disastrous attempt to capture Willy Pete at the end of Volume 5 is such a huge deal, and causes the entire caped community to stamp down very hard lest criminals and villains think the unwritten rules can be broken with impunity.
This is why Deathmonger is so feared by every cape: the villain goes after heroes on purpose, and gets little respect by other villains because the actual target is everyone with superpowers that happens to be killable. Those who know why, namely that she can control Bargainers, that is superpowered individuals who got their powers through a Deal with the Devil or similar whose superpowers keep them more or less alive even after death, are even more scared.

On Copper a rookie police officer is stabbed to death and the other cops tear though the Five Points neighborhood looking for the killer. When they have no success, the local ward boss, an ex-copper himself, orders the closing of all the local pubs until the killer is found. In a neighborhood populated by Irish immigrants this is extremely Serious Business. The killing was actually a gang initiation intended to make sure that the new member would never dare inform on the gang to the police.

Batman: Arkham Series:
Batman: Arkham Asylum sees the Joker and his men kill several guards.
Batman: Arkham City sees The Penguin's gang takes some undercover cops hostage and Cobblepot himself personally guns down one of them. Additionally, the Non-Standard Game Over for the Catwoman DLC sees the Joker kill Commissioner Gordon.
Batman: Arkham Origins opens with the death of Corrupt Cop Gillian Loeb from Batman: Year One—and despite being dressed as Black Mask, the deed is done by the Joker, much like in The Dark Knight.
Batman: Arkham Knight sees one of the first members of the Militia Batman encounters blow up a police car—with officers inside. They later launch an attack on GCPD headquarters with the intent of killing everyone inside and a nearby watchtower sees several of the people guarding it and consider firing upon it.

Among the victims of The Joker were police officers including a SWAT team in Knightfall (albeit in that case, he was working working with the Scarecrow) and Commissioner Gordon's second wife, Sarah Essen, at the end of Batman: No Man's Land.

Discussed in one episode. While appearing on a talk show Joe Friday explains to a TV audience that the reason cop killers get such a heavy response from the department isn't just because it's their friend. To paraphrase, if someone's willing to kill a cop, would they hesitate to kill a civilian?

Homicide: Life on the Street did this at least twice, with the same twist both times: the cop killer is himself killed shortly afterward, and the unlucky detective assigned to the case finds that nobody cares about justice for a dead cop killer.
"End Game" has a racist Smug Snake (played by Steve Buscemi) get away with cop killing and practically brag about it — only to be shot dead in the last few minutes. In the follow up, "Law and Disorder," the detective assigned to solve Buscemi's murder has to admit defeat because no cop will help him.
In the "Justice" two-parter, a cop killer is acquitted in court and murdered shortly thereafter. The dead cop's son (played by Bruce Campbell) is suspect number one, but nobody can figure out the evidence trail until one of the detectives casually mentions that Campbell owns a derringer. Da Chief explains that when he was a junior policeman, the Baltimore police always executed cop killers without trial, and usually did it with a derringer (which was easy to dispose of, and couldn't be traced back to the department).

The Elementary episode "End of Watch" starts with the murder of an NYPD Highway Patrol officer and the discovery that his sidearm has been replaced with an airsoft gun. The officer had been trading police guns for oxycodone, replacing them with airsoft replicas, and when he tried to quit, the arms dealer killed him in order to use his funeral as a diversion while he robbed the ESU armory. After the traitor gets exposed and his funeral cancelled, he then murders another cop (who was completely honest and got picked at random,) to ensure there's another funeral. When the killer gets arrested and dragged out of his hideout, his Smug Snake attitude towards the couple of officers holding him gets a severe knocking as he's greeted by the sight of dozens of cops lining the street as he's put in the car, reminding him that he's made a lifelong enemy of every single person in the NYPD.

In Beka Cooper, a group of drunk thugs kill Rollo and Verene in a bar fight. They're later captured, and Ahuda makes sure to defy the 'Imprisoned Cop Killer Suffers Unfortunate Accident' part by telling the Dogs under her to not kill them, as the law would make them pay for what they did.
Two thugs attempt become this by killing Beka in Bloodhound (they end up not finishing the job because Achoo the dog kept barking). As before, it doesn't work out well for them: Rosto the Rogue is rather annoyed by them trying to kill one of his friends outside his court, and has them beaten to death.

Luke Cage (2016):
Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes fatally shoots Misty Knight's corrupt partner Rafael Scarfe, after Scarfe tries to double-cross him. Scarfe lives long enough to disclose information incriminating Cottonmouth to Luke and Misty before he dies. Unfortunately, the information is useless without a living Scarfe, so Cottonmouth walks. The fallout continues into season 2, where Misty deals with many convictions obtained by Scarfe being overturned due to being tainted.
As part of his and Mariah Dillard's plan to manipulate the NYPD into buying Judas bullets (the only thing that can penetrate Luke Cage), Willis "Diamondback" Stryker murders a random police officer. He walks up to a cop who is buying socks from a street vendor, and punches him with a high-power glove, which throws the officer backwards 20 feet and instantly kills him. He then flees the scene shouting "I'M LUKE CAGE!" The police respond with aggressive brutality against Harlem residents, with Mariah exploiting the in-custody beating of one teenage boy to rally the public against the NYPD so that they'll feel the need to bulk-buy the "freak" killing Judas bullets.
In season 2, Captain Thomas Ridenhour has managed to turn Shades' childhood friend and prison lover Darius "Comanche" Jones into an informant who reports to him information about Mariah. Shades becomes suspicious of Comanche's random disappearing acts and eventually catches him in one such meeting with Ridenhour. Comanche, who's tried to cover his ass by claiming Sugar is the snitch, abruptly shoots Ridenhour dead and tries to lie to Shades. But Shades doesn't buy it, and proceeds to shoot Comanche with Ridenhour's gun, intent on making it look like the two men shot and killed each other. Except, he botches the coverup because he is unable to bear letting Comanche slowly bleed out, and decides to grant him a swifter death by shooting him a second time with Ridenhour's gun.

At the end of "The 2G Kidnapping Case", armed men kidnapping Fuerdais shot and killed Tsui Kin Hong while doing close protection duties with the SDU.
Senior Inspector Chin Hon-to has to calm his subordinates in the SDU when To Tin-yu and his girlfriend, Yiu Mei-ling, killed Yau Chun Hin in "King of Thieves Returns" for ruining the latter's face. Inspector Chin reminds his men that if they acts as vigilantes and go after them by themselves instead of using the law, then they'll be nothing more than just a bunch of rogue cops acting outside the law.

In The Twilight Zone (2002) episode "Another Life", a rapper keeps waking up to find himself in an interrogation room getting beaten up by enraged cops who accuse him of killing one of them. He protests that he has no idea what is going on, then wakes up and dismisses the events as nightmares. It turns out the events in the interrogation room are really happening and his life as a rich and famous rapper are a dream. The cops eventually beat him into a coma, trapping him in the dream permanently (which he sees as a happy ending). The cops are then informed that the real cop killer was caught, and the protagonist was innocent.

In the first Max Payne game, the titular protagonist's real problems start not when he loses his family but when he is framed for the murder of his fellow DEA agent Alex Balder, setting the cops after him when he already has the mob baying for his blood when his cover is blown. The guy who pulled the trigger on Alex and framed him is fellow DEA agent B.B., who Max then has to kill. In the second game, Max kills fellow NYPD detective Valerie Winterson when she tries to kill Mona Sax. She was the Big Bad Vladimir Lem's lover, but Max still feels guilt over it. Plus in the third game, Max has to kill an entire squad of Sao Paulo's UFE squad, they were corrupt, so it's actually justified here.

Blue Bloods:
Joe Reagan, brother to Danny, Erin, and Jamie, was a patrolman who was killed in the line of duty before the series began. Jamie's unofficial investigation into his death forms season 1's Myth Arc and leads to the unmasking of the Blue Templar, a fraternity of dirty cops in the NYPD.
In "Officer Down" a patrol officer is mortally wounded when she blunders into the path of mafia-affiliated diamond thieves while coming back from lunch. The Mafia itself joins in hunting them down, because cop killers put the whole department on edge and make life difficult. Grandpa Henry Reagan remarks that when he was on the force the mafia even had explicit rules that, outside of certain circumstances, cops were off-limits. The killer gets cornered, tries to shoot his way out, and is hosed down with lead by several detectives and an ESU team. While searching for the killer, Danny finds and arrests an accomplice (whose father is a retired NYPD officer), who he takes to a spot on the water, then explains 50 years earlier the man's father took a cop killer to that exact spot, shot him twice in the head and dumped the body in the river. It was ruled an accidental death. Danny then explains the man's father would likely disown him if he killed a cop and was executed in such a fashion. This breaks the man into giving the real killer.
In "The Bitter End" Jamie Reagan and his partner Vinny Cruz are lured into the Bitterman Housing Projects by a Latino gang with a beef against the NYPD. It's an ambush, and Vinny is fatally shot. By the end of the next episode, the NYPD, with Mayor Carter Poole's blessing, conducts a massive sweep of the Bitterman Projects, rounding up over 47 members of the Los Lordes organization for various charges including conspiracy to murder Vinny, an assassination attempt on the Mayor (which leaves the Mayor paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair), narcotics possession with intent to distribute, enterprise corruption, racketeering and a number of other criminal offenses.
Used a little oddly in "Above and Beyond". Steve Tomlin, a detective from Danny's precinct, is killed, and in typical fashion Frank firmly promises the widow to bring the killer to justice. They catch the killer at roughly the twenty-minute mark, however, and then the plot turns into a bit of a lurid look at the double life this detective was leading (due to the discovery that someone had emptied Tomlin's locker after his death without authorization). Turned out the undercover detective's cover was blown when his wife drunk-dialed a number on the detective's contacts list, thinking it belonged to the other woman, when in fact it was a member of the drug cartel her husband was investigating.
The two part season 5 finale concerned the death of recently-promoted Assistant Chief Donald Kent of the NYPD Gang Division, gunned down along with his wife Maggie in a drive-by shooting by members of the Warrior Kings gang. The hit itself was carried out on orders of an incarcerated gang member. Frank uses a loophole in the law from Kent's work on a federal case to have the Gang Banger charged federally with capital murder, having him transferred to Indiana for trial and execution.

Jessica Jones (2015)
Will Simpson's sanity begins to slip after he's almost blown up by Kilgrave and ends up taking combat enhancers from Dr. Kozlov, who runs the IGH program Simpson used to be a part of. He stumbles upon Oscar Clemons, a detective two years from mandatory retirement with full pension, at the CDC facility where Jessica had tried to isolate Kilgrave. He grills Clemons for information about Trish's whereabouts and the whereabouts of Kilgrave's father, and after getting what he needs, Simpson shoots Clemons in the face before burning down the facility.
Kilgrave takes an entire precinct hostage and orders the officers to point their guns at each other or their own heads, and threatens to make them shoot each other/themselves if Jessica does anything to him. A season later, Detective Costa recounts how terrifying the incident was and how he had nightmares that only stopped when Kilgrave died.
Jessica herself accidentally kills in self-defense Dale Holiday, a corrections officer assigned to guard her mother and who turns out to be a serial killer who loves torturing inmates for his own amusement. Those that defy his authority, he murders them, makes their deaths look like suicides, and collects their numbers as trophies. To cover up her presence, Jessica stages his death to look like a suicide. That said, Dale turns out to have not been much better with his colleagues, none of whom are saddened to hear about his death.
When cornered by Detectives Eddy Costa and Ruth Sunday in Trish's hospital room, Alisa disarms and takes Sunday hostage, then leaps out the window, dragging Sunday to her death.

Freeman's Mind 2: Gordon is convinced Alyx has been one for some time, and in murdering a room full of cops about to take him has roped him into it as well. And later on, facing one Civil Protection officer after the other, all of them opening fire from the start, he accepts that he's definitely become one himself, and thus they will be gunning for him fiercely the entire time. Little does he know he was screwed from the start; he had been the main target the entire time and isn't even aware of it.

In the first Mass Effect, one of the missions on Noveria has you fight through the facility's security force to retrieve incriminating evidence on the corrupt boss of the place. On the way out, you run into the irate sergeant, herself going behind her captain's back, who says, "You know what they did to cop killers on my world?" If Wrex is present, he retorts, "You know what we do to dirty cops on my world?"

In Jiraishin, it happens a lot with police officers being killed by determined criminals and assassins. The following are examples of police officers being targeted directly as the main plot in various story arcs.
Kyoya Iida's first partner, Tsuyoshi Yamaki, is shot to death by an illegal immigrant from China as he tried to stop an assassination attempt at a local bar.
Lin Fei, the wife on Taiwanese criminal Fan Tiamin, recruits a Taiwanese hitman to assassinate police officers throughout the Greater Tokyo Area until the Tokyo Metropolitan Police agrees to send the corpse of her sister back to Taipei instead of having it buried in Tokyo since it's against their Taoist beliefs.
Narita was gunned down by a hired assassin named Kei Amami near the end of the manga after she received a heart transplant from his deceased daughter. This began to conflict with her mental health that Kei decided to kill those who were close to her to end the "mental torment".

A complicated case was seen in Better Call Saul. Mike Ehrmantraut is a retired cop from Philadelphia whose son Matty also became a cop. Matty was completely idealistic, and when he found out that his partner and sergeant were dirty, was ready to turn them in to Internal Affairs. Mike frantically convinced Matty not to do this, because he knows cops will do anything to avoid prison, which could include killing Matty. Matty eventually backed down, but by that point the two Corrupt Cops killed Matty anyway, convinced that he was snitching on them, and made it look as though Matty was killed by a criminal they were pursuing. Mike eventually lured the two into a trap and killed them both. Because of the complications at work there's also a schism in the response of other police: younger cops who don't know how notoriously corrupt those two cops were want to bust Mike and are willing to follow him all the way to New Mexico to do so, older cops who know everything that was going on want to just let sleeping dogs lie and figure the two cops got what they deserved.

Batman has dealt with a few:
Wrath is an Evil Counterpart of Batman who specialises in murdering law enforcement officials.
The Hangman from Dark Victory mostly targeted cops, though Sofia Falcone also made an attempt on Batman and killed her brother, Alberto, with her ultimate target being Two-Face for killing her father.
Among the victims of The Joker were police officers including a SWAT team in Knightfall (albeit in that case, he was working working with the Scarecrow) and Commissioner Gordon's second wife, Sarah Essen, at the end of Batman: No Man's Land. Additionally, one of the alternate realities glimpsed in Zero Hour! was one where he opted to kill Commissioner Gordon instead of crippling Barbara.

The gangsters in Reservoir Dogs kill several police officers during the heist. At the very end of the movie during Mr. Pink's arrest (which can be faintly overheard), the cops angrily yell at him if he's a cop killer after shooting him. Mr. Blonde, who's the most psychopathic of them, is unapologetically sadistic about it when he mutilates the captured officer Marvin Nash.

Monk:
"Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa": Terry Chasen, one of Captain Stottlemeyer's detectives, is poisoned at a Christmas party. It appears to have been a case of bad luck as the detective drank poisoned port that had been delivered to the station earlier that day and seemingly was intended to kill Stottlemeyer. The crime is believed to be the work of a man whose brother Stottlemeyer had killed in a bank robbery, and who'd fired at Stottlemeyer in a parking lot a few months prior to the party. When the suspect turns out to be innocent, Monk finds that Terry in fact had been the intended target all along, and he was killed by his spurned ex-girlfriend, a fellow police officer who was pissed off that Terry had decided to end their relationship and get back together with his wife and kids.
"Mr. Monk and the Badge": a police officer named Russell DiMarco is shot and killed in a stairwell. As Monk finds out, he'd stumbled upon the identity of a recently apprehended serial killer while on patrol. Knowing that he was ineligible for the reward money as a city employee, DiMarco had a friend from his high school softball team make a false tip that led to the killer's arrest, with the promise that they'd split the reward money. Only, said friend double-crossed DiMarco, and thus shot him and kept the reward money for himself. This plotline was a loose adaptation of a plotline from the novel Mr. Monk and the Blue Flu.

RoboCop:
RoboCop (1987): Clarence Boddicker is a notorious crimelord. In addition to all his heinous crimes, he's killed 32 police officers, a number that is upped to 33 when he kills Alex Murphy. Killing Alex is Boddicker's undoing as OCP proceeded to take Alex's body to turn him into the first successful RoboCop, who (after regaining his memories) goes on a one-man Cop Killer Manhunt that resulted in Boddicker's death.
RoboCop 2:
Officer Duffy, a corrupt cop on Cain's payroll, is vivisected after Murphy interrogates him for the location of Cain's main lair.
Hob, the youngest member of Cain's cult, makes them look innocent in comparison. He's not above killing cops, even trying to garrote Lewis while Murphy is beating up Officer Duffy, and uses his age to avoid getting gunned down by Murphy.
RoboCop 3 sees Lewis gunned down by McDaggett after standing up to him. Additionally, the Rehabs fire upon the Metro West officers when Reed and company defend Cadillac Heights.
RoboCop (2014): The plot is kicked off when Alex Murphy and his partner Jack Lewis, while in the midst of doing an undercover buy with notorious arms dealer Antoine Vallon, are sold out by dirty cops on Vallon's payroll. A shootout unfolds and while Alex and Lewis manage to kill the henchmen that Vallon sics on them, Lewis is shot in the shoulder and badly wounded. Knowing that Alex will double down on him and go after the cops he owns, Vallon attempts to kill him by blowing up his car. Alex manages to survive in spite of being critically wounded, and Dr. Norton at Omnicorp decides to use Alex as a test for the company's plans to bring human-robot hybrids to American law enforcement. Once Alex overcomes Omnicorp's tempering, this bites Vallon in the ass as, much like the original Murphy and Boddicker, the new Murphy proceeds to go on a one-man Cop Killer Manhunt and kills Vallon.

In-game, he gets both a bonus against the Guard, and a combat buff for how high the bounty is on his head.

Daredevil (2015):
Wilson Fisk has numerous NYPD cops and FBI agents on his payroll who are so corrupt they're willing to murder fellow officers who aren't on the take. Fisk also has no qualms about having the corrupt cops and agents on his payroll killed when they become liabilities.
"Into the Ring": Clyde Farnum, a guard who owes money to Fisk, is threatened by James Wesley into attempting to hang Karen Page in her jail cell. When the attempt fails due to Karen clawing out one of his eyes, Fisk has Farnum bailed out, and then killed by a hitman who stages his death to look like a suicide.
"Condemned": Officer Sullivan, a rookie with just six months on the job, stumbles upon Matt Murdock and a wounded Vladimir Ranskahov in an abandoned building. Despite Matt's efforts to talk him into leaving, Sullivan calls in a hostage situation, forcing Matt to knock him out and handcuff him to a pole. This ends up summoning numerous cops to the scene including Christian Blake and Carl Hoffman, a pair of corrupt detectives who Matt just witnessed killing one of Vladimir's men in an interrogation room for saying Fisk's name. Blake has become a liability to Fisk as in the time since that incident, Matt has attacked Blake, broke his right arm, and stolen his cell phone, which contained the addresses of Vladimir's stashhouses. While Blake is trying to shoo away an increasingly suspicious Ben Urich, an ESU sniper in Fisk's employ suddenly opens fire on the cops, critically wounding Blake with a bullet to the chest and killing two uniformed cops nearbynote The latter two cops are established to have been shot to cover up the fact that Blake specifically was being targeted. The ESU team that enters the abandoned building, meanwhile, kills Officer Sullivan by cutting his throat with a knife.
"Shadows in the Glass": Because Detective Blake survived the attempt on his life, Fisk and Wesley know that he'll probably snitch on them. So they threaten Hoffman into killing Blake by injecting a syringe of poison into his IV. Matt shows up and overpowers Hoffman, but is unable to get anything out of Blake before he dies. Hoffman, wracked with guilt over the incident, is scooped up by Leland Owlsley and hidden away as a bargaining chip. When Fisk learns of Hoffman's location, he sends a team of corrupt cops to kill Hoffman, but Matt manages to stop them.
"Daredevil": Multiple FBI agents and NYPD cops are gunned down by the paramilitary team that are hired to free Fisk from the armored van transporting him to jail.
In season 2, we learn that Frank Castle's family was killed in a three-way shootout between three gangs. Frank's family's deaths were all covered up by the medical examiner, but when Karen interviews him, he tells her that he also disappeared one more body: an undercover DEA agent, whose presence at the scene would've made it established that the whole shootout was a police sting gone bad. That is, until it's revealed in The Punisher (2017) that the whole shootout was a smokescreen set up by federal operatives seeking to kill Frank for threatening to blow the whistle on war crimes he witnessed in his tour in Afghanistan.
"A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen": Nobu's lookouts on the roof of the warehouse where they are holding Karen and a bunch of other Daredevil survivors, end up killing the first pair of cops to respond after Karen activates Turk Barrett's tracking bracelet, by shooting them with arrows.
Dex makes his introduction in the second episode of season 3 singlehandedly wiping out an Albanian hit squad that ambushes the FBI convoy transporting Fisk to an FBI safehouse. The unit manages to kill five FBI agents and wound several more before Dex kills them all.
This ends up being how Ray Nadeem learns Fisk's corruption of the FBI isn't limited to Dex. He and OPR Agent Winn visit his SAC, Tammy Hattley, at her house, and Nadeem breaks his suspicions about Dex. Too late for him, Hattley is also working for Fisk, and proceeds to kill Winn with Nadeem's gun. Fisk's fixer Felix Manning then enters the room, pockets Nadeem's gun and the tape recording of the interview, and promptly blackmails Nadeem into working for Fisk as well.
"Reunion" marks the only occasion in season 3 where Fisk personally kills someone with his bare hands instead of hiring someone else to do his dirty work. In this case, Fisk beats one of his FBI bodyguards to death for informing him that Nadeem has gone rogue and prevented Dex from finishing off Karen Page as revenge for James Wesley's death. He then sends his men to Nadeem's house to get rid of Nadeem and his family, but Matt shows up in time to help Nadeem take them down.
In the second to last episode of season 3, Dex kills Ray Nadeem on Vanessa's orders, to keep him from talking after Fisk thwarts Nelson & Murdock's attempt to have Nadeem speak out against him in front of a grand jury. This ends up being Fisk's undoing, as Matt gets Felix Manning (who was in the room when Vanessa gave the order) to spill the beans, allowing him to blackmail Fisk into leaving him, Karen and Foggy alone (knowing that Fisk's love for Vanessa is his greatest weakness). On top of that, Nadeem is wise enough to record a confession video on his phone, that he sends to his wife prior to his death with instructions for the video to be plastered over the Internet, in which he apologizes to them for letting them down and also gives an outline of the extortion racket Fisk has set up using the FBI agents as his enforcers. And due to Nadeem being dead, the confession video (which would otherwise be easy for Fisk to discredit) is admissible in court per the "dying declaration" exemption rule.

The plot of 48 Hrs. is kicked off by psycho Albert Ganz and his equally vicious partner Billy Bear killing two prison guards to spring Ganz from prison. While hiding out at a hotel, Ganz and Bear ambush and kill two plain clothes detectives, and to show they're not finished with their disdain of law enforcement, later they kill a transit officer in a subway station. One hooker who Ganz roughed up even tells the cops that he seems to like killing cops more then getting laid.

Lono from 100 Bullets kills several police officer when resisting arrest. When he is sent to prison the corrupt prison guards make it clear to the cliques that run contraband that Lono is to be left alone as they intend to break him for it, as they don't want other inmates to think fighting the order is cool.

In the Shadowrun novel Lone Wolf, deep-cover gang investigator Wolf Larson is listed as a Cop Killer as part of his cover identity, to enhance his credibility with the Cutters street gang he's infiltrated. This backfires when he loses contact with his handler and needs to get word to authorities quickly, as he's afraid any other cop he contacts may retaliate against him as soon as they look up his "criminal history".

Witchblade:
In the pilot Mafia hitman Tony Gallo murders Sara's partner Danny Woo in cold blood in front of her, and she spends the rest of the episode trying to catch him while learning to use the Witchblade. Gallo also killed Sara's father, a beat cop.
"Agape":
Narcotics detective Dean Gorner gets into it with Sara at a murder scene, claiming that Homicide is dragging its feet on investigating the death of Gorner's partner Torres and taking umbrage. It turns out in the end that Gorner and Torres were Dirty Cops and Gorner himself was the triggerman. He killed Torres for his share of the take.
Following on from the above spoiler, a drug kingpin refuses to kill McCarty or Gorner, because "unlike you, I'm not a cop killer." But he's not above leaving them both guns so they'll kill each other. Fortunately Sara and Danny get there in time.

Person of Interest:
After the Dirty Cop organization HR fails at attempting to frame Detective Szymanski as a Dirty Cop in order to curry favor with The Mafiya, their leader, mayor's aide Alonzo Quinn, resorts to shooting both Szymanski and the DA trying the case. Quinn later sics HR on his own godson Detective Beecher after the latter asks the wrong questions about the Szymanski murder.
"The Crossing" and "The Devil's Share" form a two-parter with multiple examples.
At the end of "The Crossing" now-wanted HR member Simmons kills Detective Carter. The next episode there's a city-wide manhunt for him. Unfortunately for Simmons, Team Machine are also looking for him, and Reese in particular isn't inclined to be merciful. After the rest of the team stops Reese, Fusco tracks down Simmons himself and arrests him, openly refusing to kill him in Carter's memory. The Don Carl Elias is not so scrupulous and has him killed in the hospital because he liked Carter.
The page quote comes from a flashback in "The Devil's Share", where Fusco is unburdening himself to a police shrink that his first on-the-job kill wasn't a good shoot. He had hunted down and murdered a drug dealer who had killed an off-duty rookie and gotten off scot free.

The Wire repeatedly hammers home that criminals doing anything to incur the ire of the police is a very, very, bad idea, and everyone involved in organized crime is cognizant of this. Only the extremely foolhardy or most aggressive criminals try to do such a thing.
Near the end of season 1, Orlando Blocker, the guy who runs Avon Barksdale's strip club, is arrested for dealing drugs to undercover State Police cops. The Major Crimes Unit, under pressure from Burrell, arranges a buy-bust using Orlando, during which Orlando will meet with Savino Bratton on the pretense of needing money for his legal issues, accompanied by an undercover Kima Greggs. Unfortunately, it's a setup, as they are ambushed by Wee-Bey Brice and Little Man. Orlando is killed, while Kima is shot multiple times by Little Man and critically wounded. Kima lives, but the police proceed to crack down hard on the Barksdales. Avon, Stringer Bell and Wee-Bey acknowledge the utter stupidity of Little Man's improvised actions. For acting impulsively without checking with his boss, Little Man is killed by Wee-Bey as part of Avon's orders to clean house, and every other crook who hears about the incident is pissed off because of the massive, city wide crackdown that has happened as a result.
In season 3, Kenneth Dozerman, a Western District cop in Carver's Drug Enforcement Unit, is trying to buy drugs when the dealers he's talking to simply rob him, shoot him, and steal his gun. Dozerman survives, but once again it triggers a massive police reaction. When McNulty sees the brutality inflicted on the shooter, Bunk explains that the arrest van took an "unscheduled stop" at the Western District parking lot for a tune-up, and the officers "mistook him for a pinata." Major Colvin sees the incident as the impetus for forming his Hamsterdam project. Bunk meanwhile finds himself tasked with the menial duty of recovering Dozerman's missing gun, and is only saved from this when Omar hunts it down for him.
The first part of painting the infamous Stanfield Organization as more dangerous than the Barksdales is the fact that they're perfectly willing to threaten if not outright use violence against anyone who goes up against them. Major Colvin sends Herc and Carver to tell Marlo Stanfield to show up at a parley that Colvin is doing with the drug gangs in the Western District for his "Hamsterdam" project. When Marlo refuses, Herc gets up in his face over this disrespect....and then Carver notices that the various other members of Marlo's gang are all starting to reach for weapons. If not for Carver getting a proper read of Marlo's men and getting Herc to back down, they'd have a pretty bad day, and if they didn't have police badges, they'd be dead. The scene itself is an early hint about just how ruthless and bloodthirsty the group will turn out to be.

In CSI there are a few notable examples.
The Red Shirt who gets killed when Warrick leaves her alone at a crime scene in the pilot.
A random officer who's killed outside a burger joint...by another cop who claims it was an accident, but might have had a grudge ( it was dark and said cop was losing his vision).
Warrick Brown was killed at the end of a later season by The Undersheriff.
Arc Villain "Dr. Jekyll" makes his presence known at the end of his arc by blowing away a Red Shirt cop with a shotgun and severely wounding Nick.
A two-episode arc immediately following the "Dr. Jekyll" arc guest-starred Justin Bieber as a part of a sibling team of Right-Wing Militia Fanatic Mad Bombers that bombed the cop's funeral and (once the big brother was killed) driving the younger brother into a vendetta against Nick.

Soliloquy is a fanfic that rewrites the last two episodes of The Defenders (2017) to make the Hand a lot more sinister. With the Hand's leadership in disarray due to Stick killing Sowande and Elektra having just abruptly killed Alexandra and asserted herself as in charge of the Hand, the remaining three "fingers", Madame Gao, Bakuto, and Murakami, decide once Elektra is out of sight that they need to stop Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones (2015) and Luke Cage (2016) from coming to rescue Danny Rand and interfering with their harvest of the immortality substance, and the best way to do so is by attacking their loved ones. Subsequently, Bakuto, Murakami and their henchmen attack the 29th Precinct, which is where Colleen Wing, Claire Temple, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page, Malcolm Ducasse, and Trish Walker are being held, at the time that Matt, Jessica and Luke are there being questioned. Bakuto and his men storm the precinct, killing numerous cops with their guns and katanas. Bakuto kills Misty Knight's captain, then overpowers Misty and tries to kill the heroes' loved ones, but Colleen and Claire engage him, until he manages to stab Claire in the shoulder with a poisoned dagger. Luke and Jessica then attack Bakuto and his men, and hold them off while Matt and Misty get everyone else out of the precinct. They don't get too far, as they are ambushed by Murakami and his ninjas on the street right outside the precinct. A second fight breaks out, with Matt and Karen fighting Murakami, Colleen and Misty fighting Bakuto, and Luke, Jessica and Trish fighting Murakami's ninjas. By the end of the fight, Murakami has managed to stab Karen in the leg with one of his tonfas, while Bakuto cuts off Misty's right arm (like in the actual show), although Matt intervenes and stops Colleen before she can decapitate him.

Major Crimes has the Reverend Daniel Price, known as "Reverend Cop Killer" to the LAPD. As a member of the Bloods he murdered an off-duty police officer during an armed robbery, but the case was dismissed with prejudice due to one of the investigating officers perjuring himself on the stand. In the present he claims to be a changed man and has become a pastor and community leader, which turns out to be true in season four's five-part episode "Hindsight".

Star Wars Legends: Part of Corran Horn's backstory in the X-Wing Series is that his father Hal Horn, a Corellian Security Force officer like his son, was gunned down by the Trandoshan Bounty Hunter Bossk (who was after a confidential informant of Horn's, a smuggler whom he was meeting at the time). In I, Jedi he explains to Luke Skywalker that after he caught Bossk, he literally could've frog-marched him into the lobby of One CorSec Plaza and shot him "resisting arrest", and nobody in the building would've batted an eyelash.

The Cousins, Leonel and Marco Salamanca. Marco uses his chrome axe to murder a tribal police officer who happens to stumble upon them. They later are directed on Gus Fring's orders to assassinate Hank (since Gus forbids them from killing Walt). However, Hank gets tipped off by Gus about their impending arrival one minute before the attack begins. Hank is shot four times and critically wounded, but manages to fatally shoot Marco in the head and crush Leonel's legs with a car. Leonel survives, forcing Gus to send Mike to the hospital to finish him off. This orchestration of events allows Gus to force the cartel into a sitdown, and also turns up the heat on the cartel's operation, since DEA agents are normally off-limits for assassinations.
Jack Welker and his Neo-Nazi gang, who are responsible for the deaths of Hank and Steven Gomez.

Babylon 5:
"The Quality of Mercy" involves a serial killer who has murdered a number of people on the station, including a security officer, for which Garibaldi wants him Thrown Out the Airlock.
An odd variation in "Chrysalis" where we get the the typical police reaction without the actual death. Garibaldi is shot In the Back by one of his own men after uncovering a plot to assassinate President Santiago. He doesn't actually die but he's comatose until "Revelations" in season 2. The security man who shot him (who is still above suspicion at the moment) then guns down his co-conspirators in cold blood and claims to the other guards that they took a shot at him. The other guards go along with this, despite the deceased's PPG clearly not having been fired, because it's a fellow cop (their beloved boss) who got shot.
"Learning Curve" has Trace, a criminal overlord who brags about how he had heads of security on his last turf killed until he found one he could work with and he's trying to do the same on Babylon 5. A young Ranger gets involved, and since Trace sees them as some kind of law enforcement, he decides to use what he's got. The Ranger survives, barely, but Trace now has the Rangers' personal attention.

A variation in Prizzi's Honor. While the police are normally totally in the pocket of the mafia, after a policeman's wife is killed during a hit, they call off their special arrangement until the killer is turned in or killed.

In the Rampage games, you have the ability to kill/eat humans, including police officers, soldiers, and SWAT Teams who are shooting at you.

Terminator Salvation starts with the execution of Marcus Wright. We find out quickly that he killed a cop.
Supplemental materials enlighten that it was the final result of a drug-fueled Plethora of Mistakes that also took Marcus' brother (the police killed him, Marcus fired back). Even After the End and being reborn by Unwilling Roboticisation, Wright feels he's so past the Moral Event Horizon he deserves whatever he gets.

Justified: Since protagonist Raylan Givens is a US Marshal, most villains end up as attempted cop killers by default. In Season 3, Raylan's father Arlo Givens becomes the genuine article when he shoots and kills Raylan's friend, State Trooper Tom Bergen, believing him to be Raylan. In Season 5, Boyd Crowder becomes one when he has Sheriff Nick Mooney assassinated—though given that Mooney was deeply corrupt, nobody cares—and Daryl Crowe Jr. narrowly avoids it when he shoots, but fails to kill, Raylan's boss, Art.

The Punisher (2017)
The reason Frank Castle's family was killed was because Frank executed Dinah Madani's partner Ahmed Zubair on the orders of William Rawlins. Zubair was an Afghan National Police officer who discovered that fellow members of the illegal black ops unit Frank was a part of, like Rawlins, Colonel Schoonover, and Billy Russo, were trafficking heroin into the United States inside the bodies of KIAs, and using the profits to finance illegal black ops programs. Rawlins and Schoonover then ordered Frank be assassinated because they were led to believe Frank was the one who sent Micro a videotape of the Zubair assassination, as opposed to Gunner Henderson, the one who actually made the recording.
Once Frank is drawn back in to hunting down the people who ordered the death of his family, his first victim is Carson Wolf, the Special Agent in Charge of the DHS's New York City field office and Dinah Madani's current boss, and who, according to information dug up by Karen Page, was involved in the coverup of David Lieberman's faked "death". After torturing Wolf to get information on David, Frank breaks his neck.
Billy Russo and several Private Military Contractors on his payroll ambush Dinah Madani and her SWAT team when Dinah feeds them false information leading them to a warehouse where they think Frank will be making a gun buy. Most of the SWAT team is killed, as are all of Russo's men. Russo himself is approached by Madani's partner Sam Stein after fleeing into a nearby lot, and when Sam unmasks him, Russo proceeds to stab Sam to death with a retractable blade concealed under his right sleeve.
In the season 1 finale, Russo nonchalantly guns down DHS agents sent to arrest him at his pad as he goes out seeking out Frank for a final showdown.

In The Fugitive, Richard Kimble is believed to have killed a Chicago policeman (actually it was the one-armed man). U.S. Marshal Gerard knows that he has to get to Kimble before the Chicago cops do because they will be shooting to kill.
