Premise: After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

I've been home sick watching reruns and oh my, over-zealous cops flagrantly abusing their authority while they arrest and release numerous suspects without any screen-time or attention paid to the wrongly accused guys they've just abused, harassed and released. Not even a 'sorry', just a 'fuck you and we'll get you next time' on the way out.

Case in point, an episode where a university professor is murdered and a swim-team star was the last person seen with her. They approach him while he's swimming, say 'get out of the pool' and then say 'oh, you don't know nothing about this murder? Well then I don't suppose you'd mind if we look in your bag.'

And they immediately look in his bag and of course find some molly or whatever. They haul him downtown, treat him like a murderer, with one cop leaning in from behind him, resting his elbows on the guy's shoulders telling him how he's going to prison for selling drugs. The guy wasn't even the murderer.

I just found it all pretty gross. Maybe there was a time where this hard-line policing would have been cool to see on screen but now all I can think of is how I'd feel if these cops bullied their way through my life just to get a new lead in their case.

Anyone else found that this has made it hard to enjoy or am I just being a sensitive asshole?
