The character of Officer Alton Davis, played by Mario Van Peebles in the episodes "A Life of its own" and "Alton Davis Redux", is based on famous Rampart Scandal whistle blower Rafael Antonio Perez. Just like Rafael Perez, Alton Davis got the same police background and occupation : Field Enforcement Section Undercover operations in the Rampart Division and moonlighting as a bodyguard for a famous Gangsta Rap Music Company.

So refreshing vs East Coast Law&Order(s) wannabes..
It may wear thin but so far two for two. Sizemore's quirks, real issues (so far cops for hire/scandal, gangs), and a very current juxtaposition of that great and tarnished "to protect and serve" enigma work very well.
Even with great casting and good writing, East coast based cop shows are embarrassing predictable and dangerously thin (How big is the L&O franchise now?). And let's can both CSI's - Vegas crime lab as big as Quantico? In Miami, Caruso and Delaney still have those psycho NYPD Blue nauseating 'quiet and tense' personas.
I abhor helicopter MOVIES so I can't explain why I thought the opening episode's 'Air Unit' tracking was so cool as a very routine fact of life in L.A. "Bag 'em" in L.A. is a stun shot, not your gritty and cute 'body bag' line back East. One hairline crack already though.. why didn't they stun him a second round instead of forcing his hand and wasting him on the front lawn??
Thumbs Up! Let's go 4KING20!
