The 25 Most Badass Gangsters In TV History

20. Vic Mackey from The Shield (2002-2008, FX)

Played by: Michael Chiklis

It might seem strange to have a cop on this list, but if you’ve ever seen The Shield you’ll know exactly why Vic Mackey here. He's not a by-the-books cop, and Mackey and his men would often work outside of the law in order to enforce it. Which included beating criminals, planting evidence, and even murder. There's little doubt that Mackey and his crew were a gang; the only difference here is that they wore badges.

This is all a means to an end for Mackey as he truly believes that his actions are completely justified as long as they produce the proper results. In addition to putting some criminals behind bars, Mackey also left a trail of bodies and crime behind him.

The sight of that bald head walking towards you in a dark alley is enough to make you think twice about committing a crime.
