Synopsis: Josh Pollack, a naive and ambitious reporter, is convinced the F.R.A.T., an elite force within the Edison Police Department, is corrupted. Working on a homicide case, he begins to unearth evidence which suggests that the entire justice system is willingly turning a blind eye to the abuses of the this force. When his life and that of his girlfriend are threatened from his research, he join forces with his editor, a once-famous reporter, and a renown private detective to bring down the F.R.A.T. and every one behind it.

He cried.

Jesus, Jesus.

That's enough.

- Jesus. Oh my God.

- That's enough, Officer Deed.

You may step down.

Thank you.

That'll be a 10 minute recess.

We'll reconvene at quarter past.

- What the hell was that?

- Testifying.

- to the Second Coming?

- Back off.

Officer Deed?

Officer Deed.


- Why'd he thank you?

- Who are you?

Josh Pollack.

Heights Herald.

- the Jewish handout?

- It's a community weekly.

The guy is Jewish?

You're shittin' me.

I don't know he's Jewish.

And, what do you care?

You busted him in Ashtown,

that's adjacent to the Heights.

Tell our Jewish friends not to worry.

They can still walk to worship.

So why'd he say thank you?

It's a manslaughter

and possession beef.

- It could've been murder.

- So Why did FRAT catch this?

Talk to public affairs.

Officer Deed, can you tell me why

FRAT is cruising the streets?

Talk to public affairs.

Guy thanked you?


I hate that fuckin' guy.

- Who's that?

- Wallace. Pussy.


How'd court go, Frank?

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

- Something I should know?

- No. Same old, Same old.

Deed's first murder testimony.

Yep, weapons possession

Rafe. Inspection Monday?

Be sure you're there.




Yes, sir?

What are you doing?

Article on the murder trial.

I told you to put the verdict

on the police blotter.

That's a sentence, not a tome.

It's a legitimate story.

Then find a legitimate paper

to publish it.

All I want is the verdict, okay?


Sorry, did you say something?

No, sir. I didn't.

That's what I thought.

Actually I said fraud.

Did you now?

You know why The Times

won't hire you Pollack?

You don't do the work.

A thousand words, not a single

fact except for the verdict.

Everything else is supposition.

FRAT wouldn't talk to me.
