for the sergeant's exams.

No problem. Hey, Fred?

I need you to work Galleria Sunday.

Sh*t. I can't, I got Raiders tickets.


you see your kid on Sundays?

- Yeah.

- Give them to him.

What Oates said about your

fellow officers respecting you is,

as you know, complete crap.

Most cops hate our guts,

if they credit us with having any!

They think we went into IAD

for the promotions, which is true.

They're polite

cos they're afraid of us.

- Judson, you got messages for me?

- Yeah. You got 18!

I got better things to do

than be your answering service!

Yeah, it must get tense

behind that desk!

Everything's a joke

with you guys, right?


I'll be inside.

Holy sh*t!

Hey, Raymond Avilla

Dennis Peck, my partner.

- Hillerman case.

- Right. At the Academy.

- Very impressive.

- I got lucky.

- Hey, it's great to see you.

- Good to see you, Van.

What the hell are you doing here?

He's IAD.

He came to see you, man.

I'm gonna talk to you soon, OK?

It's OK.

He says you forced him

to empty his pockets.

I asked him to and he wouldn't.

- He said, "Keep your hands off."

- Why were they on him?

They weren't.

Look, he wouldn't empty his pockets!

What prompted you to search him?

He's a f***ing junkie!

It's obvious.

He's jumpy, fidgety, talking fast.

Why did you hit him, Van?

- I didn't.

- Yes, you did.

OK, I did.

They made a move for my gun!

They both made a move for your gun?

They say you provoked.

Come on,

you know that's n*gger bullshit!


You've had three 181s

for excessive force.

You're wearing a hole in the carpet!

I just stand up to a**holes.

We tested the stuff in his pocket

against what you found in the car.

So? What does that mean? He had

two stashes - to use and to sell.

I mean, if they were different.
