Young Kurt Russel

Kurt Russel plays here a rookie cop in uniform whose the elder patrol partner is killed by three young hoods, actually one out of the three. He ends by capturing all of them. Even with the three under custody, everything is not OK. Never when there is an officer down. The young patrol man is accused by his hierarchy of having neglected the killer to pursue instead the unarmed hoods. He argues for his defense that he did know that the gun which the hood had in hand was empty. In the same time, the delinquents are shown here in the most nasty way, terrorizing a poor woman whom they molested in the street just at the beginning. That's not a tale to be shown to audiences who could be one day asked to testify against hoodlums. For sure. One more thing. In usual stories like this, a cop is accused to have killed a guy whose the gun was empty - a detail which the cop did not know about... Here the cop is accused not to have fired on a guy, arguing the fact he knew the gun had no more bullets to fire.
