Mavis Hopkins (Character)
from "Brooklyn South" (1997)
Reverend Basil Matheson: Sergeant Santoro, were you in that roll call room when Dashawn Hopkins expired?
Sgt. Richard Santoro: In what capacity are you asking that question, Reverend?
Reverend Basil Matheson: In my capacity as an African American community leader.
Sgt. Richard Santoro: Well, until I've been notified to the contrary Reverend, the investigation into this morning's events is not to be conducted by community leaders.
Mavis Hopkins: [livid] Well, maybe that's the problem since you honkeys killed my brother!
Reverend Basil Matheson: Look, I'll tell you something, Sergeant. Regardless of who was conducting the investigation, if the African American community is not afforded access then we ALL will have a problem.
Sgt. Richard Santoro: Now you told me.
Reverend Basil Matheson: I'll tell you something else. If Dashawn Hopkins had to be killed in order to stop him from killing more white people, then we are prepared to accept that. On the other hand, if Dashawn Hopkins was killed subsequently and unnecessarily... and while in police custody, then we intend to see his killer or killers punished.
Sgt. Richard Santoro: Now you told me that.
Reverend Basil Matheson: I don't like your attitude, Sergeant.
