That's one of the things I hate about cop shows. Any cop that is told that he is off a case would shrug and say, "Ok. Do you want me to hand off any of the other three dozen things on my desk, since we're in a share the wealth mood? Smith doesn't do crap around here, can I give him that stabbing I picked up on 18th last week?"
That, of course, makes for pretty poor cinema.
