Drunk after a dinner date, precinct chief detective Daniel Salinger has a car accident, which allowed his service Beretta to be stolen. Moretta and Bryant reluctantly cover for him by searching rather then reporting it missing immediately. Their reward comes as this leads to discovering major plans from two criminal gangs and a godfather in a wheelchair who shamelessly abuses his privileges. As Cooper predicted, he and Ben, who proves himself adroit in self-defense, have a lunatic night due to 'good' citizens they would rather be able to arrest. A streaker is mistaken for a serial rapist. Written by KGF Vissers

Kid with Sign: It's not illegal; my dad's a lawyer.
Ofcr. John Cooper: Why you doin' this?
Kid with Sign: It's for the money, man.
Ofcr. John Cooper: The money?
[the kid holds up a jar filled with tips]
Ofcr. John Cooper: [both officers laugh] There's not even any radar up there!
Kid with Sign: *They* don't know that.
Ofcr. John Cooper: [laughing as Sherman hands the kid a dollar] Man... that's classic.

Moretta and Bryant kick Gang Leader Reggie's butt, Salinger's night from hell
13 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Moretta and Bryant investigate a suspect held to a wheelchair and looking innocent, but is dirty Gang Leader Reggie. Main plot centers around Det. Salinger trying to keep things silent about an affair with a sketchy girl in a nice suit named Mia. Salinger is trying maintain his self-respect while he has a domestic conflict riding on him. The tension of cops like Bryant and Moretta doing their jobs and Adams on a possible sex offender is complicated by the politics and dumb stuff that Salinger wishes never happened.

This a great look at the other guys besides Cooper (Cudlitz) and Sherman (McKenzie). Lot of fun and very tense.
