  • Book this abomination of a detective into general population. The ensuing events should be video taped and shown to every police dept in the country. Perhaps this can help convince all the other crooked cops to see the error in their ways

  • Reminds me of Alonzo from Training Day. Like Alonzo, this guy likely started off doing genuinely good work but eventually became corrupted by the position. They should review these officers and audit their work every 2-3 years to ensure they are not engaging in criminal behavior. Otherwise, they will continue to act with impunity.
