44 Minutes: The North Hollywood Shoot-Out

Factual error: After the cops respond to the domestic disturbance (son hitting mom), we see the male officer get in the back with the boy to show him the crime scene photos and he shuts the door after getting in. Police cars are designed so that the back doors must be opened from outside, however, he exited the car with no help. (00:21:00)

Suggested correction: Police cars just use the child safety lock on the side of door that prevents the back door being opened from inside. It's simple to turn them off so the doors can be opened from the inside.

However, as an active police car that has just arrested a suspect, the child lock would be on to prevent escape. The mistake remains valid.

And it is worth noting that when Henry leaves the car he doesn't engage the lock but the suspect remains in the car.
