Character mistake: Frank implies that Joe is the oldest child, but he was born in 1977 (1x22), Erin in 1975 (6x07), and Danny 1973 (2x17). Erin also claims she wasn't born yet when the murder of Henry's friend took place in 1977 but she would have been about two years old.

Show generally

Question: Why why does Danny always yell, "hey!" When he's is a half a block from the perpetrators which gives the perpetrators 1/2 block head start running from Danny. Why doesn't he wait until he's close to him and he wouldn't have to chase him so far?

Answer: It's a common cop show plot device. If the police on the show always acted in the most logical way (i.e. not alerting a suspect to their presence) the show wouldn't have the opportunity for an exciting foot chase.
