Of course this is a tv show, because a few things in this episode wouldn't occur in the real world. 1) Ivan would be in solitary and allowed NO communications with anyone but a lawyer. Not when he's suspected of going after cops and CSIs. 2) No mob orgazation goes out of their way to target cops. Not to say they're best buddies but cop killings usually bring scrunity to them which is the last thing they want.
