Mike Ehrmantraut came to Albuquerque to see his daughter-in-law Stacey and his granddaughter Kaylee. He also had good reason to leave Philadelphia. He was a policeman there as was his son Matt who died in the line of duty. Matt, his partner and his sergeant raided a drug den and Matt didn't come out alive. Now, some of Mike's former colleagues are in town to ask him questions. Mike insists on having a lawyer, even though is only supposed to be a friendly chat. Jimmy shows up, though Mike has a special request of him. In addition to Matt's death, his partner and sergeant were killed in a parking lot 3 months later, the night before Mike left Philadelphia. It's obvious they think Mike had something to do with that. Flashbacks show what happened that night.

For the purposes of policing, Philadelphia is broken up into "districts", not "precincts". The word "precinct" is rarely, if ever, used by either police officers or civilians. See more
You let some things slide and you look the other way. You bust a drug dealer that has more cash than you'll ever earn in a lifetime. Some of it doesn't make it back into evidence. So what? You took a taste. So did everyone else. That's how you knew you were safe. It's like killing Caesar. Everyone's guilty. Matt wasn't dirty. I was. Everyone was in that precinct. That's how it worked. You turn in your buddy, you're screwing yourself. You go along to get along.
And you went along?
