Storyline

Police sergeant Danny Waldron shoots unarmed criminal Ronan Murphy dead and, when his colleagues arrive on the scene, tells them it was an act of self defence, insisting they back him up. A witness disputes his account and he comes before the anti-corruption unit led by Ted Hastings, who is unimpressed by Waldron's arrogance. Kate goes undercover with his team, noting that officer Hari Bains is the weak link, though he will not testify against Waldron. Kate then joins the team's assault on a house, ending in bloodshed.

Goofs

Danny covers up his murder of the suspect by saying that the man drew a gun on them and his team had to shoot him. But forensics would have shown that the man was shot in the head at a downward angle. Combined with the trajectory of the bullet where it struck the ground and the height of Danny this would have shown that the man was shot while kneeling down. See more »
