No questions about the layout, right?

No questions.

Let's go over this shit again.

They got a small dinger on the door.

I'll get 'em to open it.

Then me and Levine go in. Giolito

and Pederson, block this door.

OK? Rondell and Leppert,

hit the back door.

No problem. It's a piece of cake.

McKee and Cline, you're outside

in case we get some jump-outs...

- Foley.

- Excuse me a sec.

Where in the hell is SWAT?

- Boss, I cancelled the SWAT team.

- You what?

I wouldn't raid

a church bingo game without SWAT.

These guys are carjackers.

They're mechanics.

We don't need SWA blowing holes in my evidence.

Besides, they might shoot somebody.

Let's do this.

This is your operation. I'm just

an observer, but I'll be watching.

Just observe how I don't have

to use SWAT, and trust me.

Everybody's ready?

Nobody need to take a nervous piss?

Let's mount up.

This is Dick Burton.

We've got 55 degrees this morning.

Here's Diana Ross and the Supremes,

Come See About Me.

What are you doing?

Bobby, they're here.

Any trouble with the hijack?

- Right where you said.

- Piece of cake.

- Anybody hurt?

- No.

Good. I don't like to see

people unnecessarily injured.

Nobody got hurt, boss.

- Keys?

- Ain't yours till we see money.

I just want to look in the back.

- Where's our money?

- Pay him.

You think we should have used SWAT?

- F*ck SWAT.

- That's what I say. F*ck SWAT.

- Some guy. What should I do?

- Kill him.

How you doing? Is this the illegal

chop shop where they chop up cars?

I got my wife's Buick. I want it

chopped, the bitch ain't been right.

Go, go, go!


They got f*cking machineguns.

- You said they had no guns!

- They must have changed their view.

Get the 12-gauge.

We should've called SWAT.

Police! Hands in the air!

Move it! Go! Go!

What the...?

Daniel, come on!

Cover me. I'm going in with Todd.

Axel, you on a coffee break?

Go get that son of a bitch.

Boss. Hey, man! Shit!

We got a tail.

Wax that clown.

God damn it!

Help me, man.

Police officer!

Trying to catch a killer. Move it!

- Get out of my way! I'm a cop!

- Take it easy.

Get the f*ck out of here,

all right?

Thank you. My name's Steve Fulbright.

Could I see some ID, please?

I am a Detroit police officer.

My name is Axel... Where's my shit?

I'm a police officer chasing

a killer who's getting away now.

- We know.

- You know what?

We know.

What's happened is you're in the

middle of a federal investigation.

What, income tax? The f*cking guy

just shot a police officer!

It's very important

he not be apprehended at this time.

We want to know where he's going

and who he's selling it to.

- It's drugs?

- We're not DEA.

We appreciate

your co-operation on this.

I checked with Washington,

Fulbright's kosher.

He's working

on something classified.

If they want these guys loose

we should close the investigation.

F*ck them. I want the man

that killed Todd. What you got?

Not a hell of a lot.

The dead mechanics were executed.

Only one was strapped,

he was still holstered.

The bodies of the shooters

had 30,000 cash.

- High-price heat.

- San Diego drivers' licenses.

San Diego PD's sheet says enforcers

for hire for Tijuana drug dealers.

It's about drugs?

An attach case had a towel from

the Wonder World Hotel, California.

Wonder World? Did you check out

that car they shot Todd from?

Rental from the airport.

The renter's a Dr Oliver Hirsch.

- A stolen ID?

- Yeah.

Doctor said it was lifted

while in an amusement park.

- I hope the park was Wonder World.

- Yeah.

- Excuse me.

- Wonder World.

I understand
