Corrected entry: Detective Parnell ends up in prison at the end of the film and is shown being led through to the general prison population. This never, ever happens. Ex police officers (and prison guards) who are sentenced to prison terms are always put in protective segregation. There are no exceptions and the prisoner cannot request they be allowed into the general population - it just doesn't happen.

Correction: This is a persistent urban myth, and it is wrong. If possible an ex-police officer or prison guard will be incarcerated in another state, well away from the scene of the crime. If that isn't possible they can request they be assigned to Administrative Segregation but they do not have to. They can request they be admitted to the general prison population, and most do. Drew Walter Peterson (look him up) probably wishes he hadn't as he got clobbered by a disgruntled inmate wielding a meal tray.

Other mistake: When they we're picking up the plexiglass off the floor, the piece they pick for a knife is way thicker than the rest of the plexiglass.
