For crime (and the criminal justice system), I must recommend...

Deadman Wonderland

Most people have given plenty of crime recommendations already, and I'd kind of feel like a mung if I just re-hashed the same thing, so I'll say Durarara. However, because I wouldn't necessarily label Durarara as a "crime" anime, I've noticed that you said you watched Breaking Bad? There is a show premiering on FX that is kind of a family situation of Breaking Bad, it's called Tyrant, and I'm watching it right now.

I absolutely can NOT believe that only 1 person has mentioned Detective Conan on this thread. I am /sadness right now.

Meitantei Conan or Case Closed in america (don't watch the dub and thank me later) is probably the best criminal anime there is. I love shows like this. I watch criminal minds, bones, dexter, breaking bad, psych, etc.. I live and breathe this type of stuff. So, I can assure you it is good.

Now, at first it seems a little kiddy but the blood is there. It is creepy at times and the ONLY annoying part is that there are a lot of revenge motives BUT the key to this anime is that it is nearly 750 episodes long and over 15 movies. It is the longest running anime ever and every episode has some new way of killing someone and it is always intriguing. I've seen just about every episode and REALLY wish crunchyroll would start simulcasting it. It becomes a little difficult to find the newer episodes subbed.

Funimation holds the license for this show in america and they dubbed the first 130 episodes. I don't recommend watching the dub cause they "americanized" it and changed the script....badly...and that is why it hasn't done well here but it is a great show.

I can't agree with you enough!

DC is definitely one of best crime anime out there but because most of the story arcs are episodic, this makes it kinda different from other long suspenseful crime anime, for example; 'Monster'. But once in a while, when the anime comes back to its main story arc that involve confrontations with the black organisation, I just couldn't be any more happier.

Actually, the longest running anime series is 'Sazae san' AND (lol) the anime holds the Guinness World Record for the longest running animated television series of all time with over 7000+ eps, but still DC may be the longest running shonen anime to date.

Holy crap....I never knew about that anime. Well, according to that list you linked, DC is actually like the 15th longest. Damn. It is still long as Frick though! Lol.

Lots of great shows where being bad never felt so good. There is Psycho-Pass, Black Lagoon, Code Geass, Death Note, Baccano, and so much more after that.

Psycho Pass, Kuroshitsuji and the FMA series if it counts.

If you want to see obscenely wealthy people who are above the law duke it out with their monetary assets, try Eden of the East.

Psycho-Pass is definitely one of the best crime related anime to ever come out.
