Night in Chicago - S6-E13

Character mistake: Before Kevin Atwater and Doyle fight they both put their badges and guns down on a barrel. After Atwater beats up Doyle, he retrieves Doyle's gun and holds it to Doyle's head and drops it to the ground. Atwater walks away, but he never retrieved his own badge and gun before walking away. The gun and badge are on the barrel, and he does not return to retrieve them. (00:58:37 - 00:59:32)

Snag.1

Chin Check - S1-E3

Factual error: The cops raid a house and find some rifle ammunition. The female cop says "cop killers." A few seconds later three cops are looking at the bullet and a box used to store it, it appears to be a 5.56x45mm round used in the AR-15 style rifles. All high powered rifle ammunition, doesn't matter if its bullet is fmj or armor piercing will go through soft armor which is what all police officers wear. Such ammo is available to civilians in every store. All rifle ammo could be considered "cop killer." (00:03:50 - 00:04:56)

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the show Voight and Ruzek are in their car chasing the suspect who is running. Sgt. Voight gets out of the vehicle first and is chasing the suspect toward the stairs only a few yards away. When they get to the stairs Ruzek is in the lead.

Continuity mistake: Officer Jay Halstead shoots a suspect and jumps in to render first-aid. As he goes to render aid he tosses his police handheld radio.

Care Under Fire - S5-E7

Factual error: When Detective Olinsky calls out a license plate to Detective Upton he uses the wrong police phonetic alphabet. He uses the word Andy for A instead of "Adam", as is used by Chicago police. (00:35:00)

Snag.1

Answer: Because he is a great cop and gets the job done better than anyone.

Answer: Also, if you watch Season 1 of Chicago Fire it gives a little history of Voight before he goes to jail when he was actually a "dirty cop" and Antonio Dawson is actually the one who takes him down. I found it interesting and was surprised by his character back then.

Answer: And cuz he's only dirty to the bad guys. He takes care of the victims.
