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.

but allergies. Bee stings.

Come again?

Y'all mind if I have a seat? Cool.

Y'all gonna ask a brother questions,

don't even offer me a seat.

What's happening?

All right.

While I was being slammed into the car,

having billy clubs jammed in my neck...

...that psychotic storm trooper

y'all call a cop...

...also allowed this big-ass bumblebee

to nearly sting me to death.

You know what? I'm not even sure

that bee wasn't one of his own.

Like some anti-Africanized attack

bee, trained to hate black people.

That's the sort of thing y'all gonna

uncover in your investigation... I ain't tripping.

- Would you excuse us for a moment?

- Do your thing, man.

Thank you.

We can't put this guy on the stand.

- He's unstable. Not to mention that he...

- Yo.

Who's the Planet-of-the Apes-looking

lady in the dress?

That's my father.

Handsome man.

I don't believe this.

I'm calling this off. This is crazy...

Like it or not, Rafferty violated his rights.

People won't look the other way.

We can't go through this again.

Drop the prosecution and I guarantee

you got a riot on your hands.

Earl, do you work?

Do you have a steady job?

Yes, I work. I work in security, man.

- Ah.

- Until I get back in the academy.

- I see.

- You know what?

- Y'all need to investigate them...

- Mr. Montgomery...

...all allergies aside,

did Officer Rafferty assault you or not?

How many times I gotta say it?

All right. Let's get down to business.

Superior Court is now in session.

Please be seated.

The state of California

versus Henry Rafferty.

Case CV-34259.

Honorable Marsha Gailey presiding.

At this time the bee appeared.

Right here. There it is. It's coming in.

You can't...

You can't really see

it on the tape, but it's there.


I'm swatting it with my stick.
