stop his partner from profiling, following, harassing and assaulting another person.
I have to agree with those who are saying that cops who sit idly by while watching fellow cops behave badly should be held just as accountable.
It is much like at the end of A Few Good Men - it was proven they were just following orders - but the judge still decided on dishonorable discharges - here is the part:
Downey: I don't understand... Colonel Jessup said he ordered the Code Red.
Galloway: I know but...
Downey: Colonel Jessup said he ordered the Code Red! What did we do wrong?
Galloway: It's not that simple...
Downey: What did we do wrong? We did nothing wrong!
Dawson: Yeah we did. We were supposed to fight for people who couldn't fight for themselves. We were supposed to fight for Willy.
And cops are supposed to fight for the innocent - not sit by while seeing them harassed, profiled and ultimately attacked. The fat cop should have grabbed his partner.
