WHAT TIME DID THEY COME INTO THE BAR, SIR? AH, THEY COME IN ABOUT A QUARTER AFTER 1:00.
ONE ORDERS A JACK DANIEL'S, THE OTHER ONE A GIN AND TONIC.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF CROOKS-- JACK DANIEL'S, HE PULLS OUT THIS PIECE OF CRAP, LOOKS LIKE A .
22.
LIKE I SAID, THEY GOT A .
25 SHELL CASING OFF THE FLOOR.

" "A ROBBERY? WHO THE HELL DO YOU-- GET OUTTA HERE BEFORE I BEAT YOUR SKULLS IN!" AND THEN JERK-OFF SHOOTS ME IN THE HEAD.
ONLY WHAT HAPPENS, THE BULLET DON'T PENETRATE.
SO, I'M POURING BLOOD, I JUMP OVER THE BAR, "YOU YELLOW RAT BASTARDS, I'LL KILL YA.
" I'M CHASING 'EM AROUND UNTIL THEY, UH, RUN OUT THE BACK WAY.

WHAT ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE DRESSED LIKE? LIKE I WAS CHECKIN' 'EM OUT.
THE HELL DO I KNOW WHAT THEY HAD ON? ALL RIGHT.

THE DOUCHE BAG WITH THE GUN, IF I RAN INTO HIM IN THE SUBWAY, I BET I COULD SPOT HIM.
WE SHOULD GET YOU WITH A SKETCH ARTIST.

[ Sighs ] SON OF A BITCH.

AH, THAT'S DETECTIVE SIMONE.
THANKS.
DETECTIVE.
HI.
I'M EDDIE HAZEL, MIDTOWN SOUTH.
HOW YOU DOING? BOBBY SIMONE.
ARE YOU WORKING ON A BAR ROBBERY - FROM EARLIER THIS MORNING DOWN ON MOTT STREET? - YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THAT? ON EAST 38th STREET'S HELD UP.
COULD BE THE SAME PERPS.
SO, YOU WANNA COMPARE NOTES? YEAH, SURE.
LET'S GO INTO THE COFFEE ROOM.
OKAY.
TELL ME YOUR NAME AGAIN.
EDDIE HAZEL.
CALL ME EDDIE.
YOU NEW OVER THERE, EDDIE? SIX WEEKS.
JUST CAME OVER FROM TRANSIT.
YEAH.
SO HOW YOU LIKE IT ABOVE GROUND? LOVE IT.
HEY, GINA.
HEY, JAMES.
JAMES, SEE THAT WOMAN IN A WHEELCHAIR IN THE VENDING AREA DOWNSTAIRS? -I SAW HER WITH ANOTHER WOMAN.
- THE WOMAN WAS APPARENTLY THE VICTIM OF A CON GAME.
-SHE'S OUT $5,000.
- WHEELCHAIR BOUND? THESE SCAM ARTISTS, THEY'RE ALWAYS TARGETING THE WEAKER.
THAT'S THE LOWEST OF THE LOW.
LET ME GET SQUARED AWAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM, AND THEN I'LL GO DOWN AND SEE HER.
- I'LL TALK TO YOU LATER, GINA.
- BYE, JAMES.
GINA, THERE'LL BE TWO OFFICERS FROM THE 111th BY HERE SOME TIME THIS MORNING.
IF I'M NOT IN MY OFFICE, HAVE THEM GO IN THERE AND WAIT.
SURE, LIEUTENANT.
GOOD-SIZED CROWD IS WATCHING THE KNICKS.
THESE TWO COME IN AND ORDER A GIN AND TONIC AND A JACK DANIEL'S.
THAT'S THEIR THING.
COMES TO FIND OUT, THE BAR'S GOT A BETTING POOL GOING.
MM-HMM.
BARTENDER AIMS TO PAY OFF AFTER THE GAME'S OVER.
THESE TWO PERPS WHIP OUT THEIR LITTLE POOP-BUTT PISTOL AND WALK AWAY WITH $1,500.
SO, WHEN YOU HEARD WHAT WENT DOWN OVER ON MOTT STREET-- I WONDER IF THESE JOKERS FIGURED IT WAS THEIR LUCKY NIGHT.
YEAH, THEY'RE LUCKY.
THEY'RE LUCKY THIS DUDE THEY SHOT DIDN'T BEAT 'EM TO DEATH WITH A BARSTOOL.
I'D LIKE TO TALK TO THAT FELLOW.
WELL, IF IT'S COOL WITH YOU.
YEAH.
HERE YOU GO.
THIS GUY, GALASSO, HE'S GOT A BIT OF AN ATTITUDE, BUT HE WANTS TO COOPERATE.
OKAY.
BARTENDER AT HONDO'S NAMED BILL McGREGOR.
HERE'S HIS HOME PHONE NUMBER.
YOU MIGHT HAVE TO PUSH HIM A BIT.
BEHIND THE BETTING, HE WAS A LITTLE SHY TO OPEN UP.
ALL RIGHT.
HEY, UH, TELL ME SOMETHING.
WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR P.
A.
A.
? WELL, IF I CAN ASK.
ATTEMPTED RAPE.
SCUMBAG CUT HER UP.
DAMN.
WAS HE CAUGHT? MM-HMM.
OUR SQUAD GOT HIM.
WAY TO GO.
YOU KNOW WHAT? SHE'S STILL A PRETTY GIRL.
ALL RIGHT, UH, BOBBY.
THANKS FOR THE COFFEE, AND, UH, YOU TAKE IT EASY, MAN.
YOU TOO, EDDIE.
LET'S ONE OF US CATCH THESE JOKERS, MAN.
AND THE WHITE WOMAN TOOK OUT A CELLULAR PHONE AND CALLED HER BOSS, SUPPOSEDLY A LAWYER, AND ASKED WHAT WE SHOULD DO.
HE SAID BRING THE MONEY DOWN TO HIS OFFICE AND HE WOULD CHECK ON IF IT WAS COUNTERFEIT, AND THEN WE'D BE ABLE TO SPLIT IT.
YOU, THE WHITE WOMAN AND THE BLACK GIRL WERE GONNA SPLIT IT? I MEAN, I DID TALK TO THIS MAN ON THE PHONE MYSELF.
HE DID SOUND LIKE A LAWYER.
HE SOUNDED LIKE A LAWYER? OH, GOD, SIS, YOU'RE NOT THAT DUMB.
MRS.
DUFFY, WHAT DID HE SAY TO YOU, THE MAN ON THE PHONE? HE SAID FOR US TO SHARE THE $60,000, WE SHOULD EACH PUT UP SOME MONEY OF OUR OWN TO SHOW GOOD FAITH -WHILE HE CHECKED ON IF THE OTHER WAS COUNTERFEIT.
- YOU WEREN'T SUSPICIOUS.
THIS HAD TO BE CASH? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN, "SHOW GOOD FAITH"? I CAN'T EXPLAIN.
THAT WASN'T MONEY YOU COULD AFFORD TO LOSE.
THESE PEOPLE ARE EXPERTS AT MANIPULATING PEOPLE'S TRUST.
THEY'VE PROBABLY RUN THE SAME SCAM A HUNDRED TIMES.
DON'T FEEL ASHAMED YOU WERE VICTIMIZED.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT, MA'AM? THE WOMAN TOOK $5,000 FROM HER BANK, OR SO I THOUGHT.
AND THEN I WITHDREW MINE.
HER TAKING HER MONEY OUT FIRST, THAT WAS PART OF GAINING YOUR CONFIDENCE.
AND THEN THE BLACK GIRL SAID SHE NEEDED A RIDE TO HER BANK, BUT WITH MY WHEELCHAIR, I SHOULD WAIT AT THIS COFFEE SHOP.
I WAS GIVEN THIS ZIPPERED BAG TO HOLD ONTO IN THE MEANTIME WITH THE $60,000.
WHICH WAS REALLY CHOPPED UP NEWSPAPER.
OH, AS SOON AS I GOT IN THE CAR, I KNEW I'D MADE A TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE MISTAKE.
I'M GONNA DO MY BEST TO CATCH THE PEOPLE WHO DID THIS TO YOU.
[ Sighs ] WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO NOW, SIS, HUH? HOW CAN I HAVE PEACE OF MIND, YOU LIVING INDEPENDENT BY YOURSELF, IF YOU LET THIS HAPPEN? HEY, LOMBARDI.
WHAT'S DOING? YEAH, I'M GOOD.
LISTEN, UH, EDDIE HAZEL, HE CAME BY THE HOUSE THIS MORNING.
UH-- HE'S WORKING ON SOME BAR STICKUPS? YEAH, HE GAVE ME A PHONE NUMBER ON A WITNESS FROM HONDO'S BAR.
AND, UH, I DON'T KNOW, MAN.
I MUST HAVE WROTE DOWN THE NUMBER WRONG HERE, BECAUSE-- WHAT? REALLY? AH, OH, COULD YOU DO ME A FAVOR THEN, AND CHECK THE 61? YEAH, THE GUY'S NAME IS McGREGOR.
PSST.
THANKS.
WHAT'S GOING ON? SOME DETECTIVE FROM MIDTOWN SOUTH CAME OVER THIS MORNING, LOOKING TO SWAP INFORMATION.
SO, THERE'S A MIX-UP ON THIS PHONE NUMBER OF A WITNESS THAT HE GAVE ME.
LOMBARDI'S SAYING, "I'M SURPRISED THIS JERK WOULD EVEN GIVE A PHONE NUMBER TO"-- HELLO.
YEAH.
MM-HMM.
2739.
RIGHT.
WHAT ABOUT THE HOME ADDRESS? IS THAT ON THERE? UH-HUH.
SO, WHAT YOU WERE SAYING BEFORE ABOUT THIS GUY HAZEL, WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH HIM? YEAH, HUH? [ Whispers ] ASSHOLE.
YEAH.
ALL RIGHT.
THANKS.
THANKS FOR SAYING IT.
YEAH, TAKE CARE.
WHAT'D HE SAY? THIS EDDIE HAZEL, HE'S PISSED OFF HALF THE SQUAD OVER THERE ALREADY.
HE'S AN EX-TRANSIT COP LOOKING TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE.
HE'S STEALING COLLARS FROM HIS OWN GUYS.
THINK HIM GIVING YOU THE WRONG NUMBER'S ON PURPOSE? LOMBARDI SAID THAT.
SAID THAT'S THE KIND OF SILLY CRAP THAT HE'S DOING.
YOU GOT THE LEGIT NUMBER AND ADDRESS THERE? YEAH.
BARTENDER AT A PLACE GOT HIT A FEW HOURS BEFORE THIS MOTT STREET TAVERN.
LET'S CHECK HIM OUT.
SURPRISE THIS ASSHOLE DETECTIVE WE FOUND THE GUY.
LIEUTENANT? SERGEANT CALLS US AT HOME, SAYS WE'RE TO COME TALK TO YOU.
YEAH, GOOD MORNING.
I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE INCIDENT LAST NIGHT.
THE INCIDENT? I'M CURIOUS WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND, DECIDING A BUSTED TAILLIGHT WARRANTED ME AND MY WIFE BEING TREATED LIKE, UH, BONNIE AND CLYDE.
LIEUTENANT, I REGRET WHATEVER THE INCONVENIENCE TO YOUR WIFE OR YOURSELF, BUT WE GOT TO PROTECT OURSELVES OUT THERE.
YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE IF I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT PROTECTING YOURSELF.
I CAN'T HELP WHAT YOU THINK.
UNTIL I HAVE CONTROL OF A SITUATION OUT THERE, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT I'M DEALING WITH? DO YOU FEEL THE SITUATION WAS HANDLED APPROPRIATELY? IT'S ME WHO PULLED YOU OVER, SIR.
IT'S ME YOU GOT THE BEEF WITH.
OFFICER McCASLIN CAN'T SPEAK FOR HIMSELF? HOW ABOUT IT? WELL, POLICE HAVE GOTTEN SHOT DURING CAR STOPS.
WE NEED TO PROTECT OURSELVES.
- HOW LONG YOU BEEN ON THE STREET? - TEN MONTHS.
YOU? SIX AND A HALF YEARS.
QUEENS THE WHOLE TIME? SO WHAT? SO WHAT DID YOU PERCEIVE AS SO THREATENING ABOUT ME THAT YOU REACTED TO THE DEGREE THAT YOU DID? COLOR OF MY SKIN? I KNEW.
I KNEW YOU WERE GONNA MAKE THIS A BLACK AND WHITE THING.
YOU TELL ME ONE THING I SAID OUT THERE TO DISPARAGE YOU OR YOUR WIFE RACIALLY.
THE MINUTE YOU PULLED US OVER, YOU DIDN'T TREAT US LIKE TWO PEOPLE.
YOU TREATED US LIKE TWO BLACK PEOPLE.
UH-UH, NO SALE.
SHUT UP.
AND WHEN YOU FOUND I WAS A LIEUTENANT, YOU TALKED TO ME LIKE A BLACK LIEUTENANT.
HEY, I TAKE NO CRAP OUT THERE, NOT EVEN FROM AN OFF-DUTY BOSS WANTS TO QUESTION THE MANNER I'M DOING MY JOB WHEN HE'S IN THE WRONG.
YOU'RE A MEATHEAD, SZYMANSKI, AND A HALF-ASSED COP.
THIS JOB IS KNOWING HOW TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE.
ALL DUE RESPECT, I DON'T NEED TO STAND HERE AND BE CALLED NAMES.
CAN I GO? YEAH.
YEAH, THE BOTH OF YOU.
GET THE HELL OUT OF MY SIGHT.
[ Man ] YEAH.
BILL McGREGOR? -UH-HUH.
- YEAH, WE'RE THE POLICE.
WE NEED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE ROBBERY LAST NIGHT.
I TOLD ALL ABOUT THAT.
YOU MIND OPENING THE DOOR, SIR? DETECTIVE SIMONE.
THIS IS DETECTIVE SIPOWICZ, WITH THE 15th PRECINCT.
I SPOKE AT LENGTH WITH A BLACK DETECTIVE OVER AT HONDO'S.
YEAH, HE SAID YOU WERE VERY HELPFUL WITH THE DESCRIPTION.
WE THINK THAT THE SAME TWO MEN HELD UP ANOTHER BAR AFTER HONDO'S, AND, UH, WE'D LIKE YOUR HELP.
BY MY HELP, I HOPE YOU WOULDN'T LOOK TO DO DAMAGE IN TERMS OF MY EMPLOYERS, WHATEVER ELSE WAS GOING ON BEFORE WE GOT ROBBED.
NOBODY REALLY CARES ABOUT THE BETTING.
TRYIN' TO GET THE STICKUP TEAM.
WHY DON'T YOU TELL US WHAT WENT DOWN? LIKE I TOLD THE BLACK DETECTIVE, THESE TWO GUYS COME IN, THEY SIT AT THE BAR, THEY ORDER A COUPLE OF DRINKS, WHICH THEY NURSE FOR HALF AN HOUR.
WHEN THE BALL GAME'S OVER, ONE OF THEM PULLS OUT THIS POCKET-SIZE PISTOL.
.
25, MATTE NICKEL FINISH.
THEY DEMAND THE MONEY.
I GIVE IT UP.
THEY SPLIT.
THERE'S SOMETHING YOU'RE NOT TELLING US.
WHAT? WHAT'S WITH THIS SHOULDER RIG? YOU GOT A CARRY PERMIT? - NO.
- NO, YOU JUST COLLECT HOLSTERS? WHERE'S THE GUN FITS IN THIS RIG, HMM? BEHIND THE BAR MAYBE, WHERE IT MIGHT DO SOME GOOD? ONLY WHY, IF YOU GOT, UH, WHAT, A .
45 AT THE BAR, WHY DO YOU LET THESE THIEVES WALK THROUGH THE DOOR? - SEE HOW IT DON'T MAKE SENSE? - SO, IF WE START TAKING THIS PLACE APART, MR.
McGREGOR, ARE WE GONNA FIND ANY ILLEGAL FIREARMS HERE? WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME? THE TRUTH.
DID YOU HAVE A GUN AT THAT BAR? YEAH.
YOU USE IT TO DEFEND AGAINST THIS HOLDUP? THEY TOOK IT.
THE STICKUP GUYS TOOK YOUR GUN? -HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? - I FROZE UP, ALL RIGHT.
THAT .
25 IN MY FACE.
THE OTHER GUY COMES AROUND THE BAR TO TAKE THE MONEY OUT OF MY HANDS, SEES I HAVE A COLT 1911 DOWN THERE.
TAKES THE GUN AWAY FROM ME.
YOU TELL THE OTHER DETECTIVE THIS? THE BLACK DETECTIVE? NO.
NO, YOU DIDN'T? SO, THEY'RE OUT THERE NOW WITH A .
45 AUTOMATIC.
THE MINUTE SHE SAYS I'M SUPPOSED TO TAKE MONEY FROM MY BANK ACCOUNT TO SHOW GOOD FAITH, I WALKED AWAY.
IT'S GOOD YOU DID THAT.
THESE SWINDLERS OUGHTA BE STOPPED.
THEY'RE BRAZEN.
WELL, GIVEN THEY DIDN'T SUCCEED IN CHEATING YOU, IT'LL BE A TOUGH CASE TO DO ANYTHING WITH.
EXCUSE ME, DIANE.
MA'AM, ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT A BLACK AND WHITE TEAM, TWO FEMALES? SHOW A ZIPPERED BAGFUL OF FOUND MONEY? THIS IS DETECTIVE MARTINEZ, MA'AM.
OH.
YEAH, IT'S A BLACK AND WHITE TEAM.
AND THE BLACK GIRL HAD SOME KIND OF ACCENT.
- JAMAICAN.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT.
- YOU CAN IDENTIFY THESE WOMEN? I LOOKED VERY CLOSELY AT THEM BOTH.
YEAH.
CAN I TALK TO YOU A SECOND, DIANE? - PARDON ME.
- EXCUSE ME.
YOU WORKING SOMETHING WE CAN PUT WITH THIS? YEAH, I HAD A COMPLAINT THIS MORNING, HANDICAPPED LADY.
GAVE UP FIVE GRAND TO THESE SCAMMERS A WEEK AGO.
THAT WOMAN COULDN'T PICK OUT THEIR PHOTO.
WELL, I CAN SHOW MRS.
KLEIN SOME MUG BOOKS, AND IF SHE PICKS SOMEBODY OUT, YOU CAN SHOW YOUR COMPLAINANT A PHOTO ARRAY.
I ALSO WANT TO TALK TO THE BOSS ABOUT A STING, CATCH 'EM IN THE ACT.
MM-HMM.
MAYBE PUT YOU OUT AS A MARK.
- WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN SOMETHING LIKE THAT? - THINK I CAN PASS FOR 65? I WAS THINKING, WELL, YOU COULD, YOU KNOW, PLAY LIKE YOU'RE CRIPPLED, - ROLL AROUND IN A WHEELCHAIR.
- TALK TO THE BOSS.
- BUT I CAN SAY YOU'RE INTERESTED, RIGHT? - SURE, JAMES.
MRS.
KLEIN.
WOULD YOU COME WITH A MINUTE? YEAH.
HEY, GREG, YOU UP FOR A LITTLE OVERTIME TONIGHT? WE'RE GONNA SET ON SOME BARS TONIGHT.
WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE STICKUP TEAM? COUPLE OF SKELLS BEEN TAKING BARS OFF.
GOT SOME NEW ARTILLERY.
THEY CAN'T BE PROFESSIONALS.
THEY'RE LEAVING PRINTS ON EVERY GLASS THEY TOUCH.
- NO HITS OFF THOSE, HUH? - PLUS THEY SCORE A LOADED .
45 OFF ONE BAR.
A FEW HOURS LATER THEY GO TO ROB A PLACE IN LITTLE ITALY, THEY USE THE SAME PISSANT .
25 THEY'VE HAD ALL ALONG.
[ Simone ] WELL, IT COULD BE DIFFERENT NEXT TIME.
THEY BROKE THEIR CHERRIES THROWING A SHOT, MAYBE IT'S GONNA GET GOOD TO THEM.
- GOT ANY SKETCHES ON THEM? -FELLAS, TOPLESS BAR JUST GOT HIT IN MIDTOWN.
THERE WERE SHOTS FIRED.
VINCE GOTELLI'S INVOLVED.
-IS HE HURT? -I DON'T KNOW.
38th AND 7th.
- WHAT DID HE SAY, 38th AND 7th? - YEAH.
VINCE, YOU HIT? NO, NO, CHEST PAINS.
HOW YOU FEELING? BETTER THAN I DID.
I THINK I HIT ONE OF 'EM, ANDY.
TWO WHITE MALES TRY TO ROB THE PLACE, I INTERVENED.
- THEY THROW SHOTS.
- BOTH OF 'EM THROWING SHOTS? I GOT ONE OF THEM, I THINK.
THE ONE GUY YELLED, GRABBED HIS SHOULDER GOING OUT THE DOOR.
THEN I WENT DOWN, CHEST PAINS.
COULD JUST BE GOD SAYING KEEP AWAY FROM THESE TITTY BARS.
I HAD TO USE A PHONE.
I HAD TO GET TO A TELEPHONE.
THERE YOU GO, VINCE.
REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEBODY.
TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM, HUH? YEAH.
-HEY! [ Whistles ] -[ Simone ] OH, LOOK AT THIS.
WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING HERE? HOLD ON.
THAT'S VINCE GOTELLI FROM OUR SQUAD.
WE GOT WORD THAT HE WAS INVOLVED.
WE COME CHECK ON HIM.
- WAS HE SHOT? - CHEST PAINS, EDDIE.
WELL, WHY DON'T YOU GO KEEP HIM COMPANY, HOLD HIS HAND, HUH? YOU KNOW, YOU'RE SOME KIND OF JERK.
YOU HAD ME GOING.
- WHAT WAS YOUR PROBLEM GIVING ME A WRONG NUMBER? - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? YEAH, YOU PLAY WHATEVER KIND OF SILLY GAMES YOU NEED TO PLAY, EDDIE.
NEXT TIME YOU GIVE ME WRONG INFORMATION ON A CASE, ME AND YOU, WE'RE GOING AT IT.
BE GOOD TO CHECK THE EMERGENCY ROOMS IN THE AREA.
GOTELLI SAYS HE MIGHT'VE HIT ONE OF THEM IN THE SHOULDER.
I'LL HEAR WHAT GOTELLI'S GOT TO SAY WHEN I INTERVIEW GOTELLI.
SO, THIS HAS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH GETTING THESE ASSHOLES OFF THE STREET BEFORE SOMEBODY GETS KILLED.
MY MISTAKE.
LOOK, WHY DON'T YOU SAY IT MOVING THAT WAY, ALL RIGHT? HEY, THANKS FOR STOPPING BY, CAP.
SURE.
WHAT'S UP, ARTHUR? I, UM-- I NEED SOMETHING TAKEN CARE OF.
YOU'RE NOT BIG ON ASKING FOR FAVORS.

WHAT'S UP? - I GOT PULLED OVER LAST NIGHT IN QUEENS.

ORDERS ME AND LILLIAN OVER THE TOP OF THE CAR FOR A BROKEN TAILLIGHT.
I SHOW MY SHIELD AND THIS, UH, MEATHEAD SZYMANSKI STARTS IN LIKE HE'S GONNA WRITE THE SUMMONS ANYWAY.
SO, YOU WANT HIM TRANSFERRED? SZYMANSKI? SPENT HIS WHOLE CAREER IN BAYSIDE QUEENS.
THE ONLY BLACK PEOPLE HE SEES ARE THE ONES HE PULLS OVER, WONDERING WHAT THE HELL THEY'RE DOING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
HE NEEDS TO DO SOME TIME IN BROOKLYN NORTH OR HARLEM, WHERE HE HAS TO LEARN TO DEAL WITH EVERYBODY.
UNDERSTAND WHO'S A THREAT AND WHO'S NOT.
- YOU SURE THIS IS HOW YOU WANNA HANDLE IT? - I HAD HIM IN HERE TODAY.
GAVE HIM A CHANCE TO FIX IT.
ALL THIS GUY WANTS TO DO IS SMART-MOUTH.
CAN YOU HANDLE THIS FOR ME, CAPTAIN? ALL RIGHT, ARTHUR.
I'LL SEE WHAT I CAN DO.

YOU GOT BUSINESS HERE, SZYMANSKI? YOU TURNED MY LIFE UPSIDE DOWN 'CAUSE YOU THINK I'M A BIGOT.
I SHOULD TAKE MY BEST SHOT, 'CAUSE YOU DIDN'T GET MY BEST OUT THERE ON BELL BOULEVARD.
GO AHEAD, SPEAK YOUR MIND.
WHAT, YOU GOT THE PLACE WIRED UP? HUH? I SAY THE WORDS I WANT, YOU GET ME KICKED OFF THE JOB ALTOGETHER? YOU WERE IN THE WRONG, LIEUTENANT? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME? IT'S LIKE YOU SAID, YOU PULL SOMEBODY OVER OUT THERE, NO TELLING WHO YOU'RE DEALING WITH.
EVERYBODY, EXCUSE US.
WE'RE LOOKING FOR A MISSING GIRL.
WE'RE POLICE.
WE NEED YOUR HELP.
WE'RE GONNA BE COMING UP THE AISLE SHOWING YOU THIS PICTURE.
TELL US IF YOU'VE SEEN HER.
MA'AM, DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS GIRL? MM-MMM.
- SIR, EXCUSE ME.
DOES SHE LOOK FAMILIAR TO YOU? -NO.
MA'AM, DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS GIRL? - HOW ABOUT YOU? YOU EVER SEEN HER? -ANY OF YOU RECOGNIZE HER? EITHER OF YOU FELLAS SEEN THIS GIRL? GENTLEMEN? NO.
NO.
SURE? - DOES SHE LOOK FAMILIAR TO YOU? - DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS GIRL, SIR? COME HERE.
STAY CALM.
PUT YOUR HANDS UP ON THE CHAIR.
KEEP YOUR HANDS ON THE CHAIR RIGHT THERE.
EVERYBODY STAY CALM.
- STAY IN YOUR SEATS, PLEASE.
- GOD, PLEASE, IT HURTS.
THAT WAS A FRIEND OF MINE YOU THREW SHOTS AT YESTERDAY, SO YOU JUST SAVE YOUR BREATH ABOUT WHERE IT HURTS.
WHAT IS THIS CRAP? HEY, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE? YO, EDDIE.
YOU TAKING A TRIP TO BALTIMORE? THE BUS IS GONNA BE DELAYED, LIKE, 10 MINUTES.
LOOK, OUR SQUAD CAUGHT THE CALL, ALL RIGHT? THE TICKET LADY IDENTIFIED THEM FROM OUR SKETCH.
YOU BETTER EXPLAIN YOURSELF, SIMONE.
THIS LOOK LIKE THE DAMN 15th PRECINCT? HEY, HEY, WE GOT A TIP, WE MOVED ON IT.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DID IN THE TUNNEL ALL THOSE YEARS, BUT UP HERE, THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DO.
SO YOU GOT YOUR FIRST GRADE? THE HELL WITH THE NEXT MAN TRYING TO GET HIS.
IS THAT THE STORY, SIMONE? I GOT MY FIRST GRADE FROM A LOT OF HARD WORK WITH MY PARTNERS, NOT HUMPING OTHER DETECTIVES.
GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, EDDIE, OR YOU'RE NEVER GONNA BE ANYTHING ON THIS JOB.
YOU TRACK DOWN THE THIRD PARTNER IN THAT CON GAME? OH, NO, NOT YET.
BLACK GIRL'S GIVEN US A NUMBER OF ADDRESSES AND HANGOUTS ON HIM.
SHE REALLY WANTS TO HELP HERSELF.
- YOU DID GOOD WORK ON THIS, DIANE.
- IT WAS JAMES'S PLAN.
CAPTAIN? WE NEED TO TALK? YEAH.
ON THIS COP'S TRANSFER, I NEED TO TELL YOU, I DON'T THINK IT WAS YOUR FINEST HOUR.
WHY IS THAT? THE BOTH OF US KNOW THE JOB HAS AN ETHICAL AWARENESS COURSE FOR THIS KIND OF COP AND THIS KIND OF SITUATION.
THE SENSITIVITY CLASS ISN'T GOING TO DO IT FOR THIS GUY.
ARTHUR, IF SZYMANSKI'S LIKE YOU SAY HE IS, DON'T LIKE BLACK PEOPLE MUCH TO BEGIN WITH, PLUS RESENTFUL NOW, FROM HIS POINT OF VIEW, A BLACK BOSS LOUSED HIS LIFE UP.
IS THAT THE KIND OF COP YOU WANT WALKING AROUND A NEIGHBORHOOD DON'T NEED ANY EXTRA PROBLEMS? SO, YOU'RE CONCERNED I'D BE LOWERING THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN BED-STUY? I'M JUST POINTING OUT WHAT I KNOW YOU KNOW ALREADY.
AS BOSSES, OUR DECISIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES OUTSIDE THE ROOMS WE MAKE 'EM IN.
IF YOU WANNA DISCUSS THE QUALITY OF POLICING OF BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS, WE CAN TAKE THAT UP IN LENGTH, BUT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE IS WHAT ALWAYS GOES ON WITH THE BLACK MAN ON THIS JOB WHO ASKS FOR AN ACCOMMODATION.
IT'S ASSUMED HE'S GOT A HIDDEN AGENDA.
LOOK, I CAME HERE ASKING FOR YOU TO LOOK AT USING YOUR JUICE TO HURT THIS GUY AND REMIND YOU THAT PEOPLE NEITHER YOU NOR I KNOW ARE LIABLE TO PAY THE TAB.
PRETENDING IT'S ABOUT YOU BEING BLACK SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO FACE WHAT IT IS YOU'RE DOING, THAT'S ON YOU.
OKAY, OKAY.
TRANSFER HIM TO THIS PRECINCT.
TRANSFER HIM HERE? YEAH, THAT WAY I CAN DEAL EVERY DAY WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE DECISIONS WE MADE HERE.
I THINK OVER TIME, KNOWING THE KIND OF MAN YOU ARE AT HEART, MIGHT TURN OUT GOOD FOR SZYMANSKI.
- MIGHT BE GOOD FOR YOU TOO.
- I THINK WE'VE LOOKED ENOUGH INTO MY HEART AND SOUL.
IS SENDING HIM HERE ACCEPTABLE TO YOU? YEAH.
I CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN.
HEY, GREG.
HEY, ABBY.
YOU HAVE A GOOD SHIFT? YEAH, YEAH.
WE SHUT DOWN ONE OF THOSE "FOUND MONEY" CON TEAMS.
YOU JUST ON YOUR WAY IN? YEAH.
YOU LIKE IT THERE IN ANTICRIME? YEAH, I DO.
GREG, COULD YOU FIND TIME FOR DINNER SOMETIME IN THE NEXT WHILE? SURE, OF COURSE.
UH, WHAT'S THE OCCASION, JUST A PLEASANT MEAL BETWEEN FRIENDS? WELL, I HOPED THAT IT WAS A PLEASANT MEAL THAT MIGHT RESULT IN A SPECIAL OCCASION.
WELL, THAT'S VERY MYSTERIOUS AND INTERESTING.
WELL, I-I'M NOT COMFORTABLE BEING MORE SPECIFIC.
WELL, SURE.
UM, JUST LET ME KNOW THE DAY.
I GOT BROAD AREAS OF EMPTY CALENDAR.
THANKS A LOT.
SURE.
HAVE A GOOD SHIFT, ABBY.
NIGHT, GREG.
HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
WHAT'S GOING ON, ANDY? [ Clears Throat ] UH, YOU THINK IT'S POSSIBLE PEOPLE THAT HAVE PASSED ON, MAKING CONTACT WITH THE LIVING? - YOU MEAN LIKE GHOSTS? - YEAH, MORE SO BY WAY OF YOUR DREAMS.
- I DON'T KNOW.
- [ Sighs ] ME WORKING THESE ROBBERIES, ANDY JR.
BEING KILLED IN A BAR, I CAN SEE RATIONALLY HOW A DREAM MIGHT MANIFEST FROM THAT.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE DREAM? WE'RE IN CONTACT.
DON'T EXACTLY GET ALONG.
AH, I DON'T BELIEVE IT'S POSSIBLE.
I USED TO DREAM ABOUT MY WIFE QUITE A BIT.
YEAH? NEVER SEEMED TO HAVE ANY PARTICULAR MEANING.
ME COOKING MEALS FOR HER, TAKING HER OUT ON WALKS AND STUFF.
SO, SHE NEVER CAME WITH TIPS ON HORSES TO BET? NOTHING LIKE THAT? NAH.
SOMETHING ALCOHOLIC? WE COLLARED THOSE GUYS STUCK YOU UP.
IS THAT RIGHT? COLLARED 'EM ON A BUS.
LARGE VEHICLE.
SON! [ Chuckles ] I AM SO RELIEVED.
YOU KNOW WHO'S IN THE BATHROOM THAT I BROUGHT WITH ME? WHO? SYLVIA AND THE BABY.
THEY'RE BOTH IN THE LADIES' ROOM.
I TOLD HER TO KEEP HIS EYES COVERED.
TO BE TRUTHFUL, I-I DON'T THINK THEY SHOULD BE PRESENT HERE.
THINK I BROUGHT 'EM TO EXPOSE THEO TO LIQUOR? LOOK, I-- I DON'T WANNA FIGHT WITH YOU.
WELL, I CAN'T DO NOTHING RIGHT.
I BROUGHT HIM TO MEET HIS BROTHER.
THINK SEEING ME MURDERED IS GONNA MAKE A HAPPY MEMORY? [ Gasping ] THIS IS WHERE YOU WERE MURDERED.
I JUST DON'T WANNA COMPLICATE IT.
THESE MURDERING BASTARDS.
WHAT THE SYSTEM LETS WALK AROUND.
DAD, I DON'T WANNA COMPLICATE IT.
I'M A POLICE OFFICER, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? - IT MAKES CERTAIN CLAIMS ON MY TIME.
- OH, HERE WE GO.
- THESE ARE THE SKELLS KILLED YOU.
- GEE, POP, REALLY? YOU THINK THEY'LL STOP WITH KILLING YOU? THIS IS WHY I HAVE TO DO THIS.
THAT'S CRAP.
THE BALLS YOU SIT HERE.
-GREAT, DAD.
- YOU SHUT UP.
YOU DON'T KNOW NOTHING HOW THE WORLD IS.
YEAH, I WAS REALLY SHELTERED BEING MURDERED.
OH, MY GOD.
WHAT DID I DO? WHAT DID I DO? - WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM? - I GAVE YOU MY SEAT AT THE DINER.
WE'RE GONNA BE LIFETIME COMPANIONS? THAT'S JESUS CHRIST, DAD.
CONGRATULATIONS PISSIN' OFF JESUS CHRIST.
THAT'S YOUR BOSS? HE'S TRAVELING WITH YOU? DEAD AS WHEN HE STARTED.
- WHAT DID I DO? - WHAT DID I TELL YA? I DON'T RECALL.
TALK THROUGH ME.
TALK THROUGH ME.
PLEASE GIVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE.
WHAT DID YOU JUST HAVE? I-I LOVED HIM, AS BAD AS I AM.
OH, MY POOR BOY.
[ Sniffles ] GOOD BOY.
GOOD BOY.
[ Sniffles ] GOOD BOY.
