Life imitates art: “The Good Wife” season premier based on real investigative report on cops

According to @nc5philwilliams, last night’s episode of “The Good Wife” was based on this story about police stopping cars essentially to shake down occupants for money, on the guise of pursuing drug traffickers.  I didn’t get to catch the show last night: my DVR failed me due to the late start time, so I’ll have to catch up online or on demand.  I’ll follow-up with a story in the next day or so.  According to Williams, CBS has confirmed that his story inspired part of the episode and said it was one of the “best series he [creator Robert King] had ever seen.”  Williams also reports that the episode discusses the issue of recording cops, something that has been a point of contention several times in Florida.  I can’t wait to sit down and watch the whole episode!
