National Security

Synopsis: Earl and Hank have only one thing in common: they're both L.A.P.D. rejects. One just got kicked out, the other can't even get in. After confronting each other on opposite sides of the law during a traffic stop that escalates out of control, these two luckless individuals end up partnered as lowly security guards. Despite being damned to the lowest rung of the law enforcement ladder, Earl and Hank uncover a sophisticated smuggling operation led by Nash and his band of thugs. When Earl and Hank get their hands on some hot property, they go on the run from, first the bad guys, then the L.A.P.D.--led by Lt. Washington and Detective McDuff. What these two unlikely partners do to law enforcement is a crime, but they just might save the day. That is, if they don't kill each other first.

- Settle down! Understand?

This is police brutality!

You ain't doing nothing but

compounding problems.

- I've had enough crap!

- I'm telling you, man. Get off me.


- What?

- A big-ass bumblebee behind you!

You don't think I'll fall for that, do you?

I'm allergic. If I get stung...

...I'm gonna seize up and die.

What? Just ignore him

and he won't touch you.

- Yeah. All right.

- Look! Right there.

I'm gonna...

Help! He's trying to kill me!

- Help! Help! He's trying to kill me!

- Get down! I got him!

Don't kill me!

I got him!

He's trying to kill me!

- You are seeing video...

- Check this out.

... taken earlier today, showing

Los Angeles officer, Hank Rafferty...

... brutally beating an

unidentified black male.

Police are withholding his name...

... but we have obtained

this photograph...

... taken after the beating, his face

grotesquely bruised and swollen.

It was a bumblebee.

Officer Rafferty's vicious

beating of a black suspect...

... has sparked a swift and angry

response from the black community.

Detective McDuff had this reaction:

The police and the district attorney's

office are treating this very seriously.

I urge the people of this city...

... to please be patient and

trust us to do our jobs.

Clearly, this is an isolated incident.

- It was a bee.

- Get the hell out of here.

Mr. Montgomery, this

is Detective McDuff...

...Lieutenant Washington and

District Attorney Robert Barton.

- Morning.

- Good morning. Call me.

I'm serious.

Giggler. All right.

Weren't you on TV last night?

Oh, snap, that is you.

- What's up, man?

- What happened to your face?

I was attacked by one of your officers.

What do you think?

I mean, what happened to the

swelling and bruises?

Oh, that. That ain't nothing
