Safety Monitors
25 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"God is a Bullet" is the fifth episode of the fourth season of 21 Jump Street.

The storyline involves the 21 Jump Street crew intervene in a tough new principal when he goes too far in his operation of cleaning up an inner city school of drugs and criminal activities.Officers Thomas Hanson and Douglas Penhall go undercover to look into the proceedings.

The episode could have been good.Unfortunately,it drags and it loses its focus as proceeds.The safety monitors applied in the operation has some futuristic outlook in it especially at present times when issues such as the Patriot Act and NSA are being talked about.Unfortunately,the episode focused more on the principal rather that the operation applied.It talked more about the abuse of power rather than the negative effects brought about by lack of privacy.Maybe nobody really knew its effects when the episode was made.
