Another 48 Hrs.

Synopsis: For the past four years, San Francisco cop Jack Cates has been after an unidentified drug kingpin who calls himself the "Ice Man". At the Hunter's Point Raceway, Jack confronts Tyrone Burroughs and Arthur Brock. Jack kills Brock in self defense, but Burroughs escapes, and Jack is in danger of going to prison because Brock's gun can't be found. Jack finds a picture that proves that the Ice Man has put a price on the head of Reggie Hammond, who is scheduled to be released from prison on the next day. Jack tries to convince Reggie to help him clear his name and find the Ice Man, but Reggie says he won't help unless Jack gives Reggie the $500,000 that Jack has been holding on to for Reggie. Jack refuses to give Reggie the money unless Reggie helps him. After the bus that is transporting Reggie away from the prison is forced to crash by two bikers and Jack gets shot by the same two bikers, Jack forces Reggie to help him by having the hospital release Reggie into his custody.

had insufficient probable cause.

ln view of the ongoing investigation

by the lnternal Affairs Division,

this review board's ruling is that

the shooting was a wrongful action.

l never thought

they'd land on you so hard.

You'll be prosecuted for manslaughter.

l wish they'd found that gun.

- Sorry, Jack. l'm just doing my job.

- Right(!)

Your profile says: ''obsessed cop with

a record of stepping over the line.''

lt's quite likely the DA will choose

to prosecute you on third degree.

- ln other words, you're screwed.

- Unless l find the lceman.

Give it up, Jack.

That's what got you into this.

Jesus Christ, you sound like Wilson.

We're talking facts here. You've got

no leads, the department's got no leads.

This is manslaughter.

Protect yourself.

Hammond, let's go.

lt's a big day for you today.

- Just get me out of here.

- Yeah, yeah, come on.


- Come here.

- Excuse me.

You will keep your promise, right?

Don't worry, everything is cool.

That white cop that was here,

is he a problem?


l promise you, everything is cool.

But it might take

a little longer than l said it would.

Don't bullshit me.

Get that money and keep your word.

l kept you alive in this rat hole

for five years.

l can get you out there.

l can pull your fucking heart out.

- What was all that about?

- An old football bet.

That's a crock.

Hammond, Reggie A.

$100 cash and a free bus ride

to San Francisco.

All compliments

of the State of California.

- That's it?

- Yes.

Thank you for sparing me

the other crap.

Don't slam my shit down like that.

Where's my James Brown tape?

The shit ain't in here.

Nobody keeps me

and James in prison.

- We didn't finish our conversation.

- Get me my fucking money.

You're not getting your money
