Minority Report (2002)

Plot hole: Burgess frames Anderton for Witwer's murder, using Anderton's gun in Anderton's house, but Anderton has an airtight alibi; at the same time as the murder, he was arriving at his ex-wife's home. His ex is even on the phone with Burgess, who asks if that's John arriving with Agatha.

Suggested correction: This is all a matter of trust and knowledge. At this point the precogs aren't available so they don't know who killed Witwer, the word of Burgess is enough for the precrime team to believe it was Anderton, especially considering everything that was going on. All the precrime team wants is get Anderton and put the halo on him. There is no trial, no interrogation of witnesses. The team simply don't see Anderton can't have killed Witwer and they don't care as they no longer act as real cops anymore (only Witwer did). They might find out later, but Anderton's escape changed that possibility anyway. It's not a plot hole that things went as they went.

11:00 A.M.-12:00 Noon - S1-E12

Character mistake: When Jack mentions the siege at Waco, he implies that the ATF's raid failed because an agent on-site screwed up. Their plan had actually been shot before the assault team even reached the compound; a reporter inadvertently compromised their advantage of surprise when he got lost and asked David Koresh's brother-in-law for directions, providing the Branch Davidians ample time to arm themselves in anticipation of self-defense.

FBI (2018)

Compromised - S1-E9

Character mistake: When she and OA meet Marshal Ackerman, Maggie is somewhat surprised to learn Damon Cruz was a federal witness. As a federal agent herself, Maggie surely would know that the Marshals Service's mandate includes the witness protection program.

Visions and Omens - S1-E1

Deliberate mistake: Per his own memoir, Gary Noesner was vacationing in Bermuda, celebrating his wedding anniversary, during the siege at Ruby Ridge. As one of the show's main characters, his insertion there was likely to keep him involved in the story.

The Strangers Across the Street - S1-E2

Factual error: Ed Wiggins and his media liaison are taken by surprise when they see the "Sinful Messiah" article in the Waco Tribune-Herald. The ATF had actually been aware of the article and tried to stop its publication.
