From this cop, too, a great movie. Reminds me of some of the Police Story shows by Joseph Wambaugh (THE master of real cop fiction).

I couldn't agree more. From one LEO to another, I felt they did a wonderful job portraying our life and culture. Finally, a law enforcement movie made that law enforcement professionals find realistic and can actually identify with.

Thanks for weighing in as pros. I loved this movie and was profoundly moved by it. Policing might be different in other towns, but the people who work these nightmare streets in L.A. are at the center of controversy over here these days over shootings and rough treatment of civilians. It helps to be reminded of the insanity that you all have to wade into as a matter of course, the life-and-death decisions that have to be made quickly, the horror of seeing daily the worst that humans can do to each other.
I needed to see this movie because I feel weird about cops since the demonstrations last year. I felt demonstrators were treated as criminals, and not people with a right to seek redress of grievances. Part of my thinking on this is that when representatives do not represent taxpayers, protest is the only avenue possible; that, and finding others with common ground so as to make a push for policy change.
But, clearly, when this puts you in a face-off confrontation with the police, people whose reflexes are conditioned by dealing with violent criminals, there's something missing from the equation. After watching what happened last year it became clear to me that the people demonstrating failed to convince cops of the importance of what they were doing, in the end.
I did not join the protests, but I followed them daily online and in the news.
I wonder what law enforcement officers would suggest to activists who believe civil disobedience is the only recourse left available?

I have great respect for cops, but if this is how real cops act no wonder so many people hate you.
