Benson reluctantly teams up with a tough detective from the Brooklyn DA's office when the latter's colleague is thrown off a roof following a violent attack.

male announcer:
IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM,

SEXUALLY BASED OFFENSES ARE
CONSIDERED ESPECIALLY HEINOUS.

IN NEW YORK CITY,
THE DEDICATED DETECTIVES

WHO INVESTIGATE
THESE VICIOUS FELONIES

ARE MEMBERS
OF AN ELITE SQUAD

KNOWN AS
THE SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

THESE ARE THEIR STORIES.

- WHY AM I STILL HERE
AND YOU'RE HEADING HOME?

- CAN'T WORK
ALL NIGHT LIKE YOU, SUNNY.

- MOST GUYS CAN'T, RIGGS.
- SMARTASS.

- WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE,
WALDEN?



GOING HOME
TO KISS THE BABY?

- YEAH,
AND THEN PASS OUT.

- LIGHTWEIGHT.

WHO GETS THE
RIVERA WITNESS STATEMENTS?

- OVER HERE.

- COFFEE RUN.
MY TREAT.

TRIPLE ESPRESSO.

AND GRAB
ONE FOR PAGE.

- PAGE LEFT.
- REALLY?

- HER PHONE AND GLASSES
ARE STILL HERE.

- I WATCHED HER WALK OUT
THE DOOR HOURS AGO.

- THIS IS SALIYAH QADRI,
12TH FLOOR.

IS PAGE FERGUSON'S CAR
STILL IN HER SPACE?

I'LL WAIT.
- WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?



SHE PROBABLY JUST WENT HOME.

- YEP, I'M HERE.
OKAY, THANKS.

HER CAR'S GONE.

- LIKE I SAID, SHE WENT HOME.

- WITHOUT HER BAG?

DID PAGE GET ANY CALLS
BEFORE SHE LEFT?

- UH...I DON'T KNOW.
- FIND OUT!

- THIS IS THE SERVICE VEHICLE
OPERATING SUPERVISOR.

THERE'S STILL NO RESPONSE

FROM THE VEHICLE'S
EMBEDDED CELL.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED?
- IS PAGE FERGUSON'S CAR

STILL PARKED
IN UPPER MANHATTAN?

- GPS SHOWS IT'S BEEN IDLING
IN THE SAME LOCATION

FOR 30 MINUTES.

IS THE CUSTOMER IN DISTRESS?

- I DON'T KNOW YET.

- THEN I'M VIOLATING
HER PRIVACY

AND NEED VERIFICATION
BEFORE WE--

- I SEE HER CAR.
JUST STAND BY.

- [stifled yell]

- PAGE!
IT'S SUNNY!

- [screams]

- NO!

- MS. FERGUSON,
CAN YOU HEAR ME?

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

YOUR VEHICLE
SHOWS SIGNS OF IMPACT.

FIRE AND RESCUE HAVE BEEN
DISPATCHED TO YOUR LOCATION.

MS. FERGUSON?

[dramatic music]

*

- IT'S TOO EARLY FOR THIS.
- LATE NIGHT?

- EMPTY APARTMENT,
I COULDN'T SLEEP.

- BETTER THAN BEING
LAID UP WITH THE FLU,

LIKE YOUR PARTNER.
- HE'LL LIVE.

WHAT DO WE GOT?

- SHREDDED PANTIES,
SIGNS OF PENETRATION,

BUT NO FLUIDS.
- HE RAPES HER,

THEY STRUGGLE...

SHE WAS EITHER PUSHED
OR SHE FELL.

- AFTER HE CUT HER UP.

SLASHES ACROSS
HER THROAT, ARMS, AND GROIN.

NONE OF THEM FATAL.
- PSYCHO-SEXUAL TORTURE?

- KNIFE'S USUALLY BIGGER.
THE KILLER USED A BLADE

MEASURING NO MORE
THAN THREE TO FOUR INCHES.

- WELL, IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE
SHE WAS STRANGLED.

BUT SOMETHING WAS CUT OFF.
- I.D., MAYBE?

- IS THIS THE VICTIM'S CAR?
- DON'T KNOW.

TAGS AND REGISTRATION
ARE MISSING TOO.

- WELL, SOMEONE SANITIZED
THE CRIME SCENE.

- MAYBE THE WITNESS SAW WHO.
- WITNESS?

- SAID HER NAME'S
SUNNY QADRI.

- WHERE'S SHE NOW?

- SHOWING CSU WHERE
THE VICTIM TOOK A NOSE DIVE.

- THEY MAY HAVE STRUGGLED
AGAINST THE GLASS HERE.

BUT I THINK
SHE WAS PUSHED FROM THERE.

- ARE YOU THE WITNESS, OR
ARE YOU ON THE JOB, MS. QADRI?

- BOTH, I'M
A DETECTIVE INVESTIGATOR

FOR THE BROOKLYN D.A.
- OKAY, WELL, THIS IS MANHATTAN,

AND YOU'RE TAMPERING WITH
MY CRIME SCENE.

- I DIDN'T REMOVE ANYTHING
THAT WOULD LEAD TO HER KILLER.

- DID YOU SEE HIM?
- NO, I HEARD A NOISE.

THEN SHE SCREAMED,
AND CAME FLYING OVER THE EDGE.

- WHAT WERE YOU DOING HERE?

- I WAS LOOKING FOR HER.
WE WORK TOGETHER.

I DIDN'T WANT HER
NAME GOING OUT OVER THE AIR.

- YOU STRIPPED HER I.D.,
HER TAGS, AND HER REGISTRATION

TO AVOID THE PRESS?
- AND ONE P.P.

- I THINK
YOU BETTER TELL ME WHY.

- PAGE FERGUSON'S
THE UNIT CHIEF

FOR A MAJOR
NARCOTICS BUREAU.

- HOW DID YOU KNOW
THAT SHE WAS IN TROUBLE?

- STUFF ON HER DESK,
PURSE IN HER DRAWER,

GUN STILL INSIDE.
- GUN?

WHO WAS SHE AFRAID OF?

- ANGEL RIVERA.

HE IS A MEMBER
OF THE LATIN KINGS,

AND THREATENED PAGE
IN OPEN COURT.

WE PUT PROTOCOLS IN PLACE,

SHE WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE
WITHOUT TELLING SOMEONE.

- ANYONE ELSE SHE
DIDN'T GET ALONG WITH?

- PAGE DEALT WITH
CONVICTS AND HUMPS.

YOU WANT A SUSPECT?
LOOK IN HER FILES.

- WHAT ABOUT A BOYFRIEND?
SOMEONE IN HER PRIVATE LIFE.

- SHE DIDN'T HAVE ONE.
SHE WORKED 90-HOUR WEEKS.

- WELL, THE VIOLENCE
TO HER BODY

SUGGESTS THAT
THIS ATTACK WAS PERSONAL.

- HER PARENTS ARE DEAD.
NO HUSBAND.

THAT'S WHY IT WAS SO TOUGH

WHEN SHE GOT
BREAST CANCER LAST YEAR.

TO HAVE A MASTECTOMY
AND CHEMO ALMOST KILLED HER.

BUT SHE RALLIED,
REMISSION GAVE HER A PURPOSE--

TO LIVE EVERY MOMENT,
TO SMELL A FLOWER...

TO START AN OFFICE FLING.

- THAT ENDED BADLY?

- WITH VISIBLE
CUTS AND BRUISES.

SHE WAS ASHAMED OF IT.

- DID YOU KNOW THE GUY?

- SHE WOULDN'T TELL ME.

SO I GAVE HER A GUN
AND SHOWED HER HOW TO USE IT.

- HOW MANY MEN
WORK IN YOUR OFFICE?

- AROUND 50.
BUT WHOEVER HE IS,

PAGE WOULDN'T HAVE
GONE ALONE TO MEET HIM.

MY MONEY'S ON RIVERA.

- AND WHERE IS RIVERA NOW?

- RIKERS.
WITH PLENTY OF LATIN KINGS.

ANY ONE OF THEM
COULD'VE PASSED THE MESSAGE

TO A GUNMAN OUTSIDE.

- EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT
RIVERA'S A THUG.

IF HE WANTED HER DEAD
HE WOULD'VE USED A BULLET.

- YOU SURE ABOUT THAT?

A YEAR AGO,
RIVERA NAIL-GUNNED

THIS FAMILY'S
APARTMENT SHUT.

THEN POURED GASOLINE

UNDER THE DOOR AND
LIT A MATCH.

- THE BASTARD ACTUALLY

SHOWED HIS FACE
AT THE CRIME SCENE.

- THE FAMILY DID EVERYTHING
WE ASK THE PUBLIC TO DO.

THEY CALLED POLICE,
KEPT AN EYE ON THE DRUG TRAFFIC,

AND STEPPED FORWARD
AS WITNESSES.

- SO WHY WEREN'T
THEY IN PROTECTIVE CUSTODY?

- BUDGET.
IT WASN'T A RICO CASE.

- WHEN DID YOU FINALLY
PINCH HIM?

- WE FLIPPED
ONE OF HIS CORNER BOYS.

DAMON MERCED,

WHO IS GOING TO TESTIFY
AGAINST ANGEL RIVERA.

TRIAL STARTS IN TWO DAYS.

RIVERA MUST HAVE FOUND OUT
THAT DAMON IS OUR WITNESS.

SO HE TOLD THE HITTER
TO LURE PAGE OUT

WITH PAGE DEAD, THEY'LL ASK FOR
A CONTINUANCE AND GET IT.

- I'VE PULLED THE LUDS
ON THE VICTIM'S CELL PHONE.

SHE GOT A FORWARDED CALL
FROM A BURN PHONE

TEN MINUTES BEFORE
SHE LEFT THE BUILDING.

- WHERE WAS PAGE
WHEN SHE GOT THE CALL?

- WITH HER BOSS,
DEPUTY D.A. IAN WOFFORD, WHY?

- AN S.O.S. EXPLAINS
WHY PAGE LEFT HER STUFF

AND WENT STRAIGHT
TO THE CAR.

WOFFORD'S OFFICE
IS NEXT TO THE GARAGE.

- SO THE CALLER MUST'VE
BEEN SOMEBODY THAT SHE KNEW

AND DIDN'T
CONSIDER A THREAT.

SO WHERE DID SHE GO
AFTER SHE GOT THE CALL?

- WELL, THE NAVI ROUTING
SHOWS AFTER THEY LEFT BROOKLYN

THEY WENT INTO MANHATTAN,
THEN INTO NEW JERSEY,

THEN THEY ENDED UP AT
KING OF PRUSSIA,

AND WENT RIGHT BACK.
- WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE UP TO?

- MAYBE SOMEBODY ELSE GOT
IN THE CAR WITH HER.

- THERE'S NOTHING ELSE TO SAY.
LIV?

NO. NO, I AM NOT
TALKING OFF THE RECORD.

CALL THE PRESS ROOM
AT ONE P.P.

- PRESS FOUND OUT
THAT PAGE WAS A D.A.

- YEP.

AND I AM TEMPTED TO HAND THEM
RIVERA ON A PLATTER.

[phone ringing]
- HE DIDN'T DO IT.

- THE GUY IS
A CREATIVE KILLER.

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
HE DIDN'T ORCHESTRATE A HIT?

- THE LATIN KINGS WOULD'VE
DONE HER AND DUMPED HER,

NOT HELD HER FOR HOURS
AND THEN CUT HER UP.

- IT'S PERSONAL.

- PAGE WAS IN AN ABUSIVE
RELATIONSHIP WITH A COWORKER.

SHE SHOWED ALL THE SIGNS
OF A BATTERED WOMAN.

- OKAY, YEAH.

BUT TALK TO RIVERA,
COVER YOUR ASS.

- AND YOURS TOO.

[phone ringing]

[buzzing]

- MY CLIENT HAD NOTHING TO
DO WITH PAGE FERGUSON'S DEATH.

HE'S BEEN SITTING
AT RIKERS WITH OUT BAIL

FOR OVER SIX MONTHS.

- WITH PLENTY OF
ACCESS TO A PHONE.

- CHECK THE LOGS, BITCH.

- MAKING THREATS
AGAINST PAGE IN OPEN COURT

WASN'T SMART.

- UNLESS I WALK THROUGH
WALLS, IT WASN'T ME.

- SOMEONE ELSE
DID IT FOR YOU, ANGEL.

- FOR WHAT REASON?

- MR. RIVERA'S
STILL FACING TRIAL.

AND ANOTHER PROSECUTOR
WILL JUST TAKE HER PLACE.

[cell phone rings]

- WELL, I GET THE FEELING
THAT ANGEL LIKES TO KILL

JUST FOR FUN.

- I FIND OUT
YOU ORDERED THE HIT,

I WILL END YOU.

- ANYBODY CAN GET GOT.

EVEN YOU.

- BRING IT.
SEND A HITTER MY WAY,

HE'S GOING STRAIGHT
TO THE MORGUE.

- OKAY, THAT'S ENOUGH.
THIS FISHING TRIP IS OVER.

- WARNER'S GOT SOMETHING.

- THE FALL'S IMPACT
SEVERED HER SPINE

IN THE CERVICAL
AND THORACIC REGIONS.

- DEATH WAS IMMEDIATE.
I WATCHED HER DIE.

- BUT SOMETHING'S
BUGGING YOU.

- HER HANDS.

SHE'S GOT OVER 30 STAB WOUNDS
AND SHALLOW CUTS ON HER BODY.

AND YET, THERE
ARE NO DEFENSIVE SLASHES.

- WAS SHE
RESTRAINED OR DRUGGED?

- THE ONLY DRUGS IN HER SYSTEM
WERE ANTI-DEPRESSANTS.

I ALSO FOUND HEALED SCARS--
SOME SHALLOW, SOME QUITE DEEP

BASED ON THE ANGLE,
THEY WERE SELF-INFLICTED.

- YOU THINK SHE'S A CUTTER?
- YES.

- WELL, PAGE
DIDN'T RAPE HERSELF.

- SHE MIGHT HAVE.

ONE-INCH HEALING CUTS
IN THE VAGINAL CANAL

CONSISTENT
WITH A SMOOTH-SURFACED,

HARD-EDGED INSTRUMENT.

- YOU'RE SAYING THAT SHE
SODOMIZED HERSELF WITH A KNIFE?

- PEOPLE CUT THEMSELVES
TO COPE WITH TRAUMA.

SHE MIGHT'VE SUFFERED
FROM ALGOLAGNIA,

WHERE THE BRAIN INTERPRETS
PAIN SIGNALS AS PLEASURE.

- THAT'S HORRIBLE.

- IT'S WHY THEY SUFFER IN
SILENCE AND HIDE THEIR WOUNDS.

DID THE VICTIM OWN A BLADE?

- A PEN KNIFE.

IT BELONGED TO HER FATHER.

- BUT THERE WAS NO KNIFE
IN THE CAR OR ON HER BODY.

DID YOU TAKE IT
FROM THE CRIME SCENE?

- NO!

PAGE DIDN'T DIE FROM CUTS.

SHE WAS SHOVED OFF
THE BUILDING.

- SUNNY, YOU DIDN'T SEE
ANYBODY FLEEING THE SCENE.

- YOU'RE RULING IT
A SUICIDE?

- THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL.

- SHE WAS WITH HER BOSS
WHEN SHE GOT THE CALL.

LET'S TALK TO HIM

AND FIND OUT IF HE KNEW
WHERE HER HEAD WAS.

- YOU'LL HAVE TO TALK TO
IAN WOFFORD BY YOURSELF.

- WHY?

- HE'S MY BOSS TOO.

- PAGE FERGUSON'S DEATH
IS A REAL LOSS,

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

- PAGE RECEIVED A PHONE CALL
HERE IN YOUR OFFICE

RIGHT BEFORE
SHE LEFT THE BUILDING.

- I COULDN'T TELL YOU
WHAT IT WAS ABOUT.

SHE HUNG UP, APOLOGIZED
TO ME, AND RAN OUT.

WAS SHE KILLED
BY THE CALLER?

- NO, RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS
LIKE SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE.

WAS SHE
UPSET ABOUT ANYTHING?

STRESSED, WORRIED?

- YOU JUST DESCRIBED

EVERY PROSECUTOR
IN THE BUILDING.

- AND YOU DIDN'T
ANSWER MY QUESTION.

[door closing]

- I DON'T WANT THIS
GETTING OUT.

PAGE IS DEAD AND
CAN'T DEFEND HERSELF.

- SHE'S BEING INVESTIGATED.

- THE FEDERAL INQUIRY
WAS LOOKING INTO HER UNIT

OVER MISSING DRUG MONEY.
- TAKEN FROM EVIDENCE?

- NEVER LOGGED IN.

WE BUSTED A DEALER WITH
15 KILOS, SEVERAL HANDGUNS,

AND 700 GRAND
IN SMALL BILLS.

HE CLAIMED CASH ON HAND
WAS $1.2 MILLION,

AND THAT
OUR COPS STOLE THE REST.

- WHO GOT THE COLLAR?

- PAGE.

AND THREE DETECTIVE
INVESTIGATORS,

SEAN RIGGS...

MICHAEL WALDEN...

AND SUNNY QADRI.

- THEY TAKE POLYGRAPHS?

- RIGGS AND WALDEN PASSED,
PAGE SHOWED SOME DECEPTION.

ABOUT WHAT,
WE CAN'T BE SURE.

- WHAT ABOUT SUNNY?

- SHE REFUSED TO TAKE ONE.

- YOU THINK
THAT SUNNY AND PAGE

WERE IN ON IT TOGETHER.

- QUACKS LIKE A DUCK,
DETECTIVE.

FOLLOW THE MONEY.

- NOSE DIVE.

- BROOKLYN D.A.'S
CUTTING THEIR LOSSES.

FEDS ARE INVESTIGATING
MAJOR NARCOTICS

FOR A MISSING HALF MIL.

SO THEY LEAKED
PAGE'S DEATH AS A SUICIDE

- BLAME THE DEAD WOMAN.
PROBLEM SOLVED.

- I GOT THE SURVEILLANCE TAPES
FROM BROOKLYN.

PAGE GOT THE CALL,
SHE'S LEAVING WOFFORD'S OFFICE.

WALKING INTO THE HALLWAY.

LEAVING THE BUILDING.

- DOESN'T LOOK LIKE
ANYBODY'S STALKING HER.

- INTO
THE PARKING STRUCTURE.

LEAVING IN HER CAR.
- WELL, ANY CHANCE

SOMEBODY WAS
IN PAGE'S BACKSEAT?

- WELL, IT LOOKS
LIKE SHE WAS ALONE,

BUT IN A HURRY.
- ANY FLAGS ON HER FINANCIALS?

- OH, PAGE
WAS DROWNING IN DEBT.

FROM STUDENT LOANS,
CREDIT CARDS, AND MEDICAL BILLS.

- CANCER FREE BUT CASH POOR.

I'D BE TEMPTED
BY THE DRUG MONEY TOO.

- IT DOESN'T
MAKE HER A THIEF.

- EXCEPT FOR THE FACT
THAT SHE PAID OFF

HALF OF THOSE BILLS...
WITH MONEY ORDERS PURCHASED

FROM A POST OFFICE BOX
IN RED HOOK,

AND CHECK CASHING PLACES
ALL OVER THE BRONX.

- DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.
- FOR SUNNY EITHER.

SHE REFUSED
A LIE DETECTOR.

MAYBE SHE'S DIRTY TOO.

- IT'S TIME WE TALKED TO
THE REST OF THE UNIT ABOUT IT.

- DID YOU TRACE
THE DISPOSABLE CELL

THEY USED TO LURE PAGE OUT?
- SERIAL NUMBER WAS SHIPPED

TO AN ELECTRONIC STORE
IN MIDTOWN.

I CALLED THEM AND TOLD THEM
TO PULL THE SECURITY TAPES.

DETECTIVE TUTUOLA, I CALLED YOU
ABOUT THOSE SURVEILLANCE TAPES.

- DON'T YOU PEOPLE TALK
TO EACH OTHER?

HEY!
I'M WATCHING YOU.

- JUST GIVE ME THE TAPES AND
I'M OUTTA YOUR HAIR.

- I GAVE THEM
TO THE OTHER COP.

REAL HOT NUMBER.

YOU SHOULD TELL HER
TO COME BACK AND SEE ME.

- LET ME GUESS--
TALL, BRUNETTE, ACCENT?

- AND BEDROOM EYES.
JUST MY TYPE.

SET ME UP?
- SHE WOULDN'T LET YOU

TOUCH HER TO WIPE HER ASS.

JUST MAKE ME
A COPY OF THE TAPES.

- SHE TOOK THE ORIGINALS.

- DETECTIVE RIGGS AND WALDEN.

WE GOT THE ORDER
FROM OUR CAPTAIN

THAT YOU WANTED TO SEE US.
- YEAH.

HAVE A SEAT,
I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS.

- FIRST, THE BOSSES TAKE
THE WORD OF A DRUG DEALER.

AND NOW PAGE IS DEAD?
IT STINKS.

- EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT
YOUR PROSECUTOR WAS DIRTY.

- PAGE WOULDN'T RISK
HER CAREER OVER A FEW BUCKS.

- UH, 500K
ISN'T CHUMP CHANGE.

- FEDS ARE ALREADY DIGGING.

IF YOU HAVE PROOF,
WHY TALK TO US?

- 'CAUSE MAYBE
SHE DIDN'T DO IT ALONE.

- HEY, YOU WANT
A WITCH HUNT?

TRANSFER TO I.A.B.,
SWEETHEART.

- OKAY, YOU CAN
HELP ME CLEAR THIS UP

OR THE FEDS CAN
HANG YOU OUT TO DRY.

HONEY.

- I PASSED THE POLY,
SO THEY'RE NOT LOOKING AT ME.

- AND I HAVEN'T MET A COP YET

WHO DOESN'T KNOW
THE TRICKS TO BEAT IT.

- IF YOU'RE TURNING OUR SCREWS,
YOU MUST LIKE SUNNY FOR THIS.

- COULD BE ANY OF YOU.

NOW I UNDERSTAND
THAT PAGE FERGUSON

HAD AN OFFICE ROMANCE.

ANY IDEA WHO?

- NOT A CLUE.

- THOUGHT THIS
WAS A TIGHT UNIT.

- NOT LATELY.

PAGE AND SUNNY
WEREN'T GETTING ALONG.

LOT OF ARGUMENTS,
LOT OF COLD SHOULDERS.

- YOU KNOW WHY?

- ASK SUNNY.

- WALDEN?

DO YOU KNOW WHY THEY
WERE AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS?

- MAYBE ONE OF THEM
HAD A GUILTY CONSCIENCE.

MAYBE THE OTHER ONE HAD
TO STOP HER FROM SQUAWKING.

- YOU KNOW, MY PARTNER'S NEW.

SUNNY'S A STAND-UP COP.
SHE WOULD NEVER CROSS THE LINE.

[phone ringing]

- WHERE'S
DETECTIVE QADRI NOW?

- SHE'S WITH THE FEDS.

- OLIVIA,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?

- SALIYAH QADRI,
YOU'RE UNDER ARREST

FOR EVIDENCE TAMPERING
AND OBSTRUCTION.

- I WAS GOING
TO HAND OVER THE TAPES--

- YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE
TAKEN THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.

- WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
YOU CANNOT ARREST HER

IF I DON'T FILE CHARGES.
- IT'S NOT UP TO YOU, CHRIS.

- PAGE FERGUSON'S DEATH
IS TIED TO MY INVESTIGATION

INTO MISSING DRUG MONEY.
I AM TAKING OVER.

- SHE TAMPERED
WITH MY VICTIM'S BODY,

SHE LIED TO THE POLICE,
AND SHE STOLE

SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE OF WHOEVER
LURED PAGE TO HER DEATH.

- TAKING THE TAPES
IS SUGGESTIVE,

IT'S NOT ENOUGH
FOR AN ARREST.

- SHE'S GOING IN, CHRIS,
WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

- THIS CASE
BELONGS TO THE FBI.

- SEND ME THE PAPERWORK.
LET'S GO.

- [chuckles]
AFTER YOU.

- I TOOK THE FOOTAGE
BECAUSE I WANTED TO KNOW

WHO KILLED
MY COLLEAGUE AND FRIEND.

- THAT'S A NICE SPIN,
BUT I'M NOT BUYING.

- EVEN IF I FOUND OUT WHO?

THE PHONE WAS SOLD

TO A HOOD RAT
NAMED LAKEISHA WATKINS.

THE STORE OWNER
SAYS SHE'S A REGULAR.

I RAN HER NAME
AND GOT A HIT.

- YOU SHOULD'VE TOLD ME
YOU WERE UNDER INVESTIGATION.

- YOU WOULD'VE
CUT ME OUT OF YOUR CASE.

- SO WHAT
SET YOU OFF, SUNNY?

WAS IT PAGE
FAILING THE POLYGRAPH TEST?

OR DID SHE GET COLD FEET
AND WANNA MAKE A DEAL?

- THERE WAS
NOTHING TO CONFESS.

- BUT SHE WAS
GONNA TURN YOU IN.

YOU WOULD'VE LOST
YOUR JOB,

YOUR PENSION,
YOUR FREEDOM.

- PAGE DIDN'T TAKE THE MONEY,
NEITHER DID I.

- SHE PAID OFF HER DEBTS
WITH THE MONEY ORDERS.

AND THAT'S WHEN YOU SNAPPED.

SO WHAT DID YOU DO?
YOU CUT HER UP,

YOU TOSSED HER
OFF THAT BUILDING,

AND YOU STAGED
THE CRIME SCENE.

- IT'S A SET-UP!

ANYONE COULD
BUY MONEY ORDERS

AND MAKE IT LOOK
LIKE SHE STOLE THE CASH.

- BY PAYING HER BILLS?
- A DEALER ONCE TRIED

TO DEPOSIT MONEY
IN MY BANK ACCOUNT.

TO SKIP ON A DRUG CHARGE,
MAKE A COP LOOK BAD.

- SOME COPS ARE CROOKED.

I'M LOOKING AT ONE
RIGHT NOW.

- I DIDN'T TAKE THE MONEY,

AND I DIDN'T KILL PAGE.
- OKAY.

OKAY.

SO WHY NOT
TAKE THE POLYGRAPH?

- IT WAS A SLAP IN THE FACE.

25 YEARS ON THE JOB,
NOT EVEN ONE ACCUSATION.

THEN MY REPUTATION GETS
BLOWN TO HELL

FOR A LOW-LIFE SCUM BAG.

IF THEY THOUGHT
I WAS GUILTY,

THEY WERE
GONNA HAVE TO PROVE IT.

- SO WHY BOTHER
TO TAKE IT NOW?

- IT WAS THE ONLY WAY
TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT.

THE UNIT'S UNDER
A CLOUD OF SUSPICION,

THEN PAGE GETS KILLED...

I HAD TO PROVE THAT
NO ONE ON OUR TEAM'S DIRTY.

- SATISFIED?

- NOT TILL I FIND
PAGE FERGUSON'S MURDERER.

- SUNNY SHOWED NO SIGNS
OF HESITATION OR DECEPTION,

SHE PASSED THE POLY.

- SO DID RIGGS AND WALDEN.

- WHICH JUST LEAVES
THE VICTIM.

- [sigh]

IT'S PROBABLY
WHAT GOT PAGE KILLED.

- UNLESS SHE REALLY DID
COMMIT SUICIDE.

- WELL, IF SHE DID,
SHE HAD HELP.

LAKEISHA WATKINS.

THIS GIRL
BOUGHT THE BURN PHONE.

POSSESSION, RESISTING,
AND ILLEGAL WEAPONS CHARGES.

- THE GIRL LIKES KNIVES.

- PICK HER UP.

- WHAT'S LAKEISHA DOING

WITH BROOKLYN SNITCH
DAMON MERCED?

- LET'S ASK
BEFORE THEY TAKE OFF.

- HEY, STOP.
POLICE.

OH!

DROP THE KNIFE!

- LEAVE!
I DON'T KNOW YOU.

- YOU WANT AN
OPEN OR CLOSED CASKET?

- DROP THE GUN!
DROP THE GUN!

NOW!
[sirens blare]

[tires squealing]
- WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?

- I'M ON THE JOB,
PUT YOUR PIECE AWAY.

- YOU PUT YOUR PIECE DOWN!
- RELAX!

RELAX, RELAX.
PUT YOUR WEAPON DOWN.

PUT YOUR WEAPON DOWN.

- RIGGS, WHAT GAME
ARE YOU PLAYING?

- I SHOULD BE ASKING YOU.

LOCAL COPS
ARE MOVING MY WITNESS

TO A SAFER LOCATION,
WHY ARE YOU HERE?

- WE CAME TO QUESTION
LAKEISHA ABOUT PAGE'S MURDER.

- WHAT WOULD
SHE KNOW ABOUT IT?

- SHE LURED
PAGE FROM THE OFFICE

AND NOW HERE SHE IS
WITH RIVERA'S RAT.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

- YOU NEED
TO BRING HIM BACK HERE

OR EITHER DELIVER HIM
TO OUR PRECINCT.

- THE ONLY PLACE I'M
TAKING DAMON IS TO COURT.

YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT,
CALL THE BROOKLYN D.A.

- LATIN KINGS PUT
A PRICE ON DAMON'S HEAD.

YOU CAN TALK TO LAKEISHA...

- IT TOOK HOURS
TO CUT HER UP, RIGGS.

SOMEBODY DROVE PAGE
ACROSS STATE LINES,

TORTURED HER,
THEN THREW HER OFF THE ROOF.

- I READ
THE CORONER'S REPORT, SUNNY.

PAGE DID IT TO HERSELF.
SHE JUMPED.

- THE CAUSE OF DEATH
WAS INCONCLUSIVE.

- DAMON USED HIS GIRLFRIEND

TO LURE PAGE
FROM THIS BUILDING.

DON'T YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY?

- YOU REALLY
THINK HE DID THIS?

- YOUR SNITCH
HELD A GUN TO MY HEAD.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- THAT HE BETTER
HAVE A DAMN GOOD STORY

WHEN I HAND HIM TO YOU.

- WHY DID YOU CALL PAGE FERGUSON
ON THE NIGHT SHE DIED?

- DAMON WAS FREAKING OUT.

SAID HE SAW ONE OF HIS OLD CREW
AND WE WASN'T SAFE.

- WELL, RIGGS IS HIS HANDLER,
WHY DIDN'T YOU CALL HIM?

- TRIED HIM FIRST,
KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

COULDN'T FIND HIM.

- WHY DIDN'T DAMON
MAKE THE CALL HIMSELF?

- I DON'T TALK ON THE PHONE,
THAT'S HOW YOU GET PINCHED.

- BUT WHY HAVE LAKEISHA
CALL THE VICTIM?

- VICTIM?
THAT BITCH KILLED HERSELF.

- ANSWER THE DAMN QUESTION,
MERCED.

- LAKEISHA
CALLED MY HANDLER FIRST.

WHEN HE DIDN'T PICK UP,

I TOLD HER CALL THE OFFICE
AND TALK TO HIS WOMAN.

- WHO TOLD YOU THAT
RIGGS AND PAGE WERE A COUPLE?

- NOBODY.

I CALLED HIM AT HOME
LATE ONE NIGHT,

AND SHE ANSWERED THE PHONE.

SHE SOUNDED
JUST LIKE LAKEISHA

AFTER I WAS DONE
GIVING HER A GOOD POUNDING.

- I THOUGHT YOU JUST SAID THAT
YOU NEVER USE THE PHONE?

- DID PAGE
OFFER TO PICK YOU UP?

- MM-HMM, MM-HMM.
NEVER SHOWED.

- HOW LONG YOU WAIT?
- COUPLE HOURS.

- WHAT KIND OF CAR WAS
PAGE DRIVING?

- A BLACK SUV.

- HOW WOULD YOU KNOW THAT
IF SHE NEVER SHOWED?

- SHE TOLD ME
WHAT TO LOOK FOR.

- SO WHERE'D YOU GO
AFTER PAGE STOOD YOU UP?

- WE SPLIT UP.
I TOLD MY GIRL,

"GO HOME AND
JUST STAY OUT OF SIGHT."

- AND YOU DIDN'T
CALL THE OFFICE BACK

HOPING TO GET
SOMEBODY ELSE TO HELP YOU?

- I DON'T
KNOW ANYBODY ELSE.

I KEPT MY HEAD DOWN,
AND I JUST KEPT IT MOVING.

LOOK, I'M A SURVIVOR,
AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO.

- YOU AND THE COCKROACHES.

- COME ON,
BACK TO THE SAFEHOUSE

- I HOPE DAMON'S
MORE CREDIBLE ON THE STAND

THAN HE WAS
IN THAT INTERVIEW.

- HE'S NOT
THE ONLY LYING BASTARD.

RIGGS WAS INVOLVED WITH PAGE
AND SMACKING HER AROUND.

WE NEED TO SIT HIM DOWN.

- NOT ON THE WORD
OF SOME PISSANT INFORMANT.

- WHERE WAS RIGGS
WHEN PAGE WENT MISSING?

- IN THE OFFICE.
I SAW HIM RIGHT BEFORE

I REALIZED PAGE WAS GONE.

HE WAS LEAVING
FOR THE NIGHT.

- LAB CHECK THE KNIFE
LAKEISHA PULLED ON ME.

IT DOESN'T MATCH
THE VICTIM'S WOUNDS.

- IT'S GONNA BE
TOUGH TO PROVE MURDER

WITHOUT MORE EVIDENCE.
- BUT WHY KILL PAGE?

DAMON IS A WITNESS
FOR THE PROSECUTION,

WHAT DOES HE
GAIN BY HER DEATH?

- I RAN
RIGGS' PHONE RECORDS.

NOT ONE INCOMING CALL
TO HIS WORK OR CELL

FROM LAKEISHA'S BURN PHONE.

- PROVES THEY'RE LYING,
BUT DOESN'T PUT THEM

IN THE SAME
ABANDONED BUILDING WITH HER.

- NO HAIR,
NO FIBERS, NO PRINTS.

IT WAS COLD, THEY HAD TO
BE WRAPPED UP IN WINTER GEAR.

- UNLESS THEY WERE
SITTING IN A HEATED CAR.

TELL ME
YOU HAVE SOMETHING, JUDY.

- WE FOUND
A SMALL POOL OF BLOOD

BELONGING TO THE VICTIM

BEHIND THE DRIVER'S SEAT
AND UNDER THE MAT.

- THE KILLER FORCED PAGE
INTO THE BACK SEAT

TO SLASH HER UP.
- BASED ON HER WOUNDS,

THERE SHOULD'VE BEEN
A LOT MORE BLOOD ON THE SEAT.

WE DIDN'T FIND ANY.

- BECAUSE SHE
WAS SITTING ON PLASTIC.

- THAT'S WHAT I'M GUESSING.
NO OFFENSE TO WARNER,

BUT THIS LOOKS
LIKE A HOMICIDE TO ME.

- GOT ANYTHING
TO BACK THAT UP?

- THIS TOLL RECEIPT.

- WELL, IT'S FADED.
HOW CAN YOU TELL?

- POINT OF SALE,

THERMAL PAPER
FADES WHEN IT HEATS UP.

SO WE COPIED THE IMAGE,
THEN USED INFRARED AND UV LIGHT.

RECEIPT WAS PRINTED
AT A TOLL BOOTH

HEADING INTO NEW JERSEY
AT 2:00 A.M.

- THERE'S BLOOD ON IT.

- YEAH, BUT
IT'S NOT THE VICTIM'S.

WE RAN IT THROUGH CODIS,
NO HITS.

- THE TICKET IS TIME-STAMPED,
AND THE BOOTHS HAVE CAMERAS.

LET'S PULL THE FOOTAGE
AND FIND THIS KILLER.

- ANY SIGN OF PAGE'S CAR?
- NOTHING YET.

THERE'S A LOT OF TRAFFIC
ON THE ROAD

AT 2:00 IN THE MORNING.

- SO WHERE ARE WE?

- WE THOUGHT PAGE
WAS DRIVING THE CAR ALONE,

BUT THE BLOOD ON THE TOLL
RECEIPT ISN'T HERS?

- SO WHO WAS IN THE CAR
WITH HER?

- MAYBE HER BOYFRIEND, RIGGS.

- YOU THINK THAT HE GOT TIRED
OF SLAPPING PAGE AROUND?

DECIDED TO END THEIR
RELATIONSHIP ONCE AND FOR ALL?

- THE GUY SEEMS ON EDGE.

HE'S DEFINITELY
HIDING SOMETHING.

- MY BET'S ON HIM.
- YOU LOST YOUR BET.

LOOK WHO'S DRIVING
PAGE'S CAR.

- THAT'S PAGE'S SNITCH,
DAMON MERCED.

- PAGE'S OFFICE
IS PROTECTING HIM.

WHY WOULD HE KILL HER?

- GO ASK THE RAT BASTARD.

- I ASKED FOR DAMON'S
LOCATION, NOT YOU.

YOU CAN'T COVER UP
FOR YOUR INFORMANT THIS TIME.

- THAT'S NOT WHY I'M HERE.
YOU DON'T GET TO COLLAR

THE SCUMBAG WHO KILLED PAGE
RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE.

- DON'T EXPECT ME
TO SIT ON THE SIDELINES.

SHE WAS MY FRIEND.

- THAT'S WHY YOU
SHOULDN'T BE HERE, SUNNY.

- FORGET IT.
- BY THE BOOK.

- UH-HUH.

- THIS DOOR'S
BEEN KICKED IN.

SOMEBODY
EMPTIED A CLIP IN THEM,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE
THEY'VE BEEN DEAD FOR A WHILE.

- IT WOULD'VE BEEN LOUD.

HAD TO HAVE WITNESSES.

- IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD,

YOU'D BE LUCKY IF
ANYONE ANSWERS THE DOOR.

- BULLETS TRAVEL.
SOME CITIZENS COULD BE HURT.

- ANYONE ELSE KNOW
THEY WERE STASHED HERE

BESIDES YOU?

- WHAT, ARE YOU
ACCUSING ME OF SOMETHING?

- THEY KILLED PAGE.

YOU WERE IN ON IT TOGETHER
AND HAD TO SHUT THEM UP.

- THAT'S CRAZY.
- HEY, KNOCK IT OFF, SUNNY.

- WHAT THE HELL'S
WRONG WITH YOU?

- WHY DID YOU DO IT?
WHY KILL PAGE?

- HEY, I GOT
NO PROBLEM HITTING A WOMAN

SO I SUGGEST
YOU GET OUT OF MY WAY.

- CALM DOWN.
STEP ASIDE.

I WOULDN'T GO TOO FAR.

- FOUND GOD?
- DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS LOST.

A NEIGHBOR TURNED IT IN.
SLUGS IN THE SPINE.

- YOU SHOULDN'T BE
HERE, SUNNY.

- WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?

- YOU KNOW DAMN WELL
YOU CAN'T WORK A CASE

OUTSIDE
OF YOUR JURISDICTION.

YOU GOTTA HIT THE BRICKS.

- FINE.
BUT IF I WERE YOU,

I'D CHECK THE DUMPSTER.

- WHO TOLD YOU THAT?
THE SAME NEIGHBOR?

- HIS TEN-YEAR-OLD SON.

DON'T MAKE THE BOY
A TARGET, FIN.

- WHAT'S YOUR NAME, KID?

DON'T WANNA TALK TO ME?

- NO.

- LOOK, I UNDERSTAND.
YOU'RE SCARED.

BUT YOU GOTTA
TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.

- MY DAD'S UPSET.

HE SAYS WE GOTTA MOVE.

- WHY?
'CAUSE YOU SAW WHO DID IT?

- HE SAW ME
WHEN HE DUMPED THE GUN.

- OKAY,
WHAT'D HE LOOK LIKE?

- BORIQUA.

HE HAD A SNAKE ON HIS NECK,
BLACK AND GOLD BEADS.

HE'S GONNA COME BACK
AND KILL ME, ISN'T HE?

- NOT UNLESS
HE HAS A DEATH WISH.

LISTEN, I'M NOT GONNA LET
ANYTHING HAPPEN TO YOU, OKAY?

COME ON.

- 26 .9 MILLIMETER
SHELL CASINGS.

- HOW MANY SHOOTERS?
- MY GUESS?

ONE.

PRELIMINARY EXAM
OF LANDS AND GROOVES

SAYS THEY ALL
CAME FROM THE SAME GUN.

- THE SHOOTER HAD TO RELOAD.

- PROBABLY USED
A MAC-10 WITH A FULL MAGAZINE.

- WHERE'D YOU GET THAT?
- THE KID LED ME TO IT.

- IS HE WILLING TO TALK?
- WELL, I TOLD HIM NOT TO.

- FIN, HE HAS TO COME FORWARD
TO GET PROTECTION.

- I GOT THIS COVERED.

- DETECTIVES...

- THIS IS PAGE FERGUSON'S
PEN KNIFE,

WHERE'D YOU GET THIS?

- IN LAKEISHA WATKINS' PURSE.

- WE HAD THEM
AND WE LET THEM GO.

- LAB REPORT, THE BLOOD SAMPLE
AND THE TOLL RECEIPT

BELONGS TO LAKEISHA WATKINS.

- WELL, I GUESS HER DEATH
IS ONE WAY

FOR PAGE TO GET JUSTICE.

- WE STILL GOTTA
FIND THE SHOOTER, LIV.

THE KID I TALKED TO SAID

HE SAW A LATIN KING
DUMP THAT GUN.

BUT I WANNA
KEEP HIM OUT OF IT.

- OH, I'M WITH YOU.
THERE'S NO NEED

FOR HIM TO RISK HIS LIFE
BEFORE IT'S EVEN STARTED.

- OKAY.
LAKEISHA AND DAMON

WERE IN A SECRET LOCATION.

SOMEBODY HAD
TO FEED THEM THE ADDRESS.

- PROBABLY THE SAME PERSON
WHO ARRANGED PAGE'S MURDER.

- SHE WAS SET UP.

- DAMON SLIPPED
HIS ELECTRONIC BRACELET,

SLAP ON THE WRIST.

ARRESTED FOR DRUGS,
VACATED.

PINCHED WITH A GUN,
VACATED.

- SOMEBODY'S
LOOKING OUT FOR HIM.

- HIS HANDLER.

SEAN RIGGS.

SO DAMON LURES PAGE,
DRIVES AROUND FOR HOURS

WHILE THE GIRLFRIEND SITS IN
THE BACK AND CUTS HER UP.

- MOST BANGERS
DON'T GET OFF ON TORTURE,

BUT HE WANTED THAT DRUG MONEY.

- PAGE IS A CUTTER.

SHE HAS A HIGH
THRESHOLD FOR PAIN.

WHEN THE SERVICE OPERATOR
SPOOKS THEM,

THEY HAVE TO
GET OUT OF THE CAR--

- THEN THEY PUSHED HER OFF
A BUILDING TO SHUT HER UP.

YOU THINK RIGGS
MIGHT'VE LET IT SLIP

THAT PAGE
STOLE THAT DRUG MONEY?

- THE FEDERAL INVESTIGATION.

HE NEEDED HER
TO TAKE THE FALL.

- I NEED A UNION REP.

- WE CAN WAIT FOR ONE OR
YOU CAN CLEAR THIS UP RIGHT NOW.

- WHAT DO YOU WANNA KNOW?

- HOW THE LATIN KINGS
FOUND YOUR INFORMANT.

- IF YOU THINK
I LEAKED HIS LOCATION,

FORGET IT,
I DON'T OPERATE THAT WAY.

- YOU HAD YOUR INFORMANT
KILL A D.A. FOR DRUG MONEY.

DAMON WAS YOUR WEAKEST LINK,
SO HE HAD TO GO.

- THAT'S A LIE.

OKAY, I HAD
A RELATIONSHIP WITH PAGE.

I LOVED HER.

- YOU HAD SEX WITH HER
AND YOU ABUSED HER,

I WOULDN'T CALL THAT LOVE.

- WE WERE TOGETHER
FOR ALMOST A YEAR.

ALL RIGHT, I HAD
TO SNEAK INTO THE HOSPITAL

WHEN SHE HAD CANCER.

NOW SHE'S GONE,
I CAN'T EVEN GRIEVE.

- WHY THE BIG SECRET?
- SHE WAS THE HEAD OF OUR UNIT,

HOW WOULD IT LOOK
IF WE WENT PUBLIC?

- AND THAT UPSET YOU.

SHE EMASCULATED YOU,
ORDERING YOU AROUND THE OFFICE.

SO YOU SLAPPED HER
AROUND AT HOME.

- I NEVER TOUCHED HER.
- YOU SAID IT YOURSELF,

YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM
HITTING WOMEN.

- WHO COME AT ME!
OKAY, YOU WEAR THE UNIFORM,

FEMALES ARE THE FIRST ONES
TO TRY TO TAKE YOU OUT.

SO I WON'T HESITATE
TO PUT A BROAD DOWN HARD.

- OKAY.
SOMEBODY SAW HER BRUISES.

- THAT SHE GAVE TO HERSELF.

I MEAN, SHE'D BEEN
SELF-HARMING FOR YEARS.

- PERFECT WAY TO MAKE
A MURDER LOOK LIKE SUICIDE.

- PAGE WAS
IN AND OUT OF THERAPY.

SHE USED TO
PULL HER EYELASHES,

SLAM HER BODY INTO DOORS.

AND NOBODY COULD EVER
TELL HER WHY.

AT FIRST, THEY SAID
THAT HER BRAIN WAS WIRED WRONG.

AND THEN SHE JUST
WANTED THE ATTENTION.

PERSONALITY DISORDERS.

ANXIETY, DEPRESSION.

I WALKED IN ON HER ONCE,
AND SHE HAD...

SHE CUT HER THIGH TOO DEEP.

AND SHE APOLOGIZED TO ME
ALL THE WAY TO THE E.R.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY,

TILL THE COPS
SHOWED UP TO TAKE ME IN.

YOU CAN CHECK THE 61s.

- WE DID.

THE COPS DIDN'T CLEAR YOU.

- THEY THOUGHT PAGE
WAS A BATTERED WOMAN.

ARGUMENTS AND STRESS
TRIGGERED HER NEED TO CUT.

SHE SAID IT
RELIEVED THE PRESSURE.

YOU KNOW, SHE SWORE
THAT SHE WOULD RESIGN

AFTER THE RIVERA TRIAL.

THAT SHE WOULD
FOCUS ON HER HEALTH.

- YOU THINK
SHE COMMITTED SUICIDE?

- BETWEEN THE MISSING
DRUG MONEY AND THE RIVERA TRIAL,

WHAT WOULD YOU THINK?

- DID PAGE QUESTION YOU
ABOUT THE MONEY?

- I TOOK THE POLY
SO SHE WOULDN'T HAVE TO.

I GUESS IT DIDN'T MATTER
IN THE END.

[knocking]

- ANGEL RIVERA HAD A VISITOR

THE SAME DAY
DAMON AND LAKEISHA GOT KILLED.

- WHO SIGNED
THE VISITOR'S LOG?

- LET'S GO.

- THIS A CONJUGAL VISIT?

- YOU'RE NEVER
HAVING SEX AGAIN.

AT LEAST
NOT THE CONSENTING KIND.

YOU DON'T WANT YOUR LAWYER?

- I DON'T NEED HIM.

PUNK WITNESS IS DEAD.

CHARGES GOTTA BE DROPPED.

CASE CLOSED.

I'M GONNA BE A FREE MAN.

- IN YOUR DREAMS, ANGEL.

COME TO KISS ME
GOOD-BYE, TOO?

- NO, I CAME
TO THROW AWAY THE KEY.

YOU AND YOUR GIRLFRIEND
ARE GONNA BE IN HERE

FOR A LONG TIME.

ISN'T THAT RIGHT, GINA?

- WHAT SHE DOING HERE?

- SAME THING AS YOU.

CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT MURDER.

- STUPID VACA.
WHAT DID YOU TELL THEM?

- SHE TOLD US EVERYTHING.
- THEY MADE ME, ANGEL.

- YOU CALLED HER HERE
YESTERDAY.

YOU GAVE HER THE ADDRESS
WHERE DAMON AND LAKEISHA

WERE HIDING,
AND YOU TOLD HER

WHICH ONE OF YOUR LATIN KINGS
WAS GONNA KILL 'EM.

- I DIDN'T DO NONE OF THAT.

- [sobbing]
THEY KNOW, BABY.

- SHE'S LYING.

- SUCH A TRAGEDY.

- WHAT IS?

- THAT YOUR KID
IS GONNA BE BORN IN PRISON.

BOTH PARENTS DOING TIME.

NO REAL FAMILY,
IN THE SYSTEM,

AND SCREWED FOR LIFE.

- DOESN'T HAVE TO HAPPEN
THAT WAY.

- WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

- WELL, THERE IS ONE THING
THAT WE DON'T KNOW.

WHO TOLD YOU WHERE DAMON
AND LAKEISHA WERE HIDING?

- TELL US.

AND GINA WALKS.

- PLEASE...BABY.

- COME ON, ANGEL.

PRISON NURSERIES
DON'T HAVE TOYS.

- THAT BITCH SAID
IF I CLEANED UP HER MESS,

SHE'D CLEAN UP MINE.

- WHICH BITCH?

- YOU LIED, SUNNY.
- THIS SHOCKS YOU?

- YOU DID KNOW DAMON.
YOU ARRESTED HIM IN '95.

- I ARRESTED A LOT OF PEOPLE
OVER THE YEARS.

CAN'T REMEMBER THEM ALL.
- BUT HE WAS YOUR SNITCH.

HE GAVE YOU INFORMATION
AND YOU BAILED HIM OUT.

FOR YEARS,
YOU DID IT OVER AND OVER.

- HE WAS ALMOST AS EASY
TO MANIPULATE AS YOU.

- WANTING TO SEARCH
FOR DRUG MONEY,

YOU WILLING TO COOPERATE?

- SURE.

WHAT ARE
WE TALKING ABOUT,

3 1/2 YEARS?

I'LL DO A YEAR, TOPS.

- LOOKS LIKE YOU
GOT IT ALL FIGURED OUT.

- I TOOK THE CASH AND
HOPED YOU WOULDN'T CATCH ME.

I WAS WRONG.

- OH, YOU DID
A LOT MORE THAN HOPE.

YOU INSERTED YOURSELF
IN THE MIDDLE

OF MY INVESTIGATION
FROM THE BEGINNING.

- YOU'RE UPSET.

- PAGE FIGURED OUT
THAT YOU STOLE THE MONEY,

AND SHE ORDERED YOU
TO TURN IT IN.

SHE ACTUALLY CARED
ABOUT YOU.

- NO.
I CARED ABOUT PAGE.

UNLIKE HER,
I PROVED IT EVERY DAY.

- YOU DIDN'T
GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HER.

YOU SOLD HER OUT
FOR THE DRUG MONEY.

- YOU CAN'T PROVE THAT.
- I CAN SELL IT.

- PAGE OWED ME.
- HER LIFE?

YOU TOLD YOUR SNITCH
THAT SHE LIFTED THE DRUG MONEY

AND HE KILLED HER FOR IT.

- ASK ME WHY.
- I DON'T NEED TO.

YOU'RE LIKE
EVERY OTHER LOWLIFE

LOOKING FOR AN EASY PAYDAY.
[dog barking]

- DETECTIVE.

[dog whimpers]

- WHAT THE HELL DO YOU KNOW?

PAGE AND I STARTED
TOGETHER IN BROOKLYN.

FEW WOMEN MAKE IT THAT
FAR UP THE FOOD CHAIN

WITHOUT STABBING EACH OTHER
IN THE BACK.

WE WATCHED OUT FOR EACH OTHER.

WE HAD A DEAL!

- UNTIL SHE DECIDED TO QUIT.

- PAGE USED ME
TO MAKE UNIT CHIEF.

MY CONTACTS, MY SNITCHES
MADE HER CAREER.

AND WHAT DO I GET FOR IT?
- WHAT DID YOU WANT?

- I WAS SUPPOSED
TO MAKE CAPTAIN!

SHE GETS SICK
AND WANTS TO BAIL

FOR A MAN!

- YOU WERE JEALOUS.

- [tired chuckles]

SHE OWED ME.

SHE DOESN'T WALK
UNTIL HER DEBT'S PAID.

SO WHAT?
I TOOK THE MONEY.

I EARNED IT.

- I WANNA
ASK YOU SOMETHING.

WAS IT WORTH IT?

- TALK TO ME IN TEN YEARS
WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING--

NO FAMILY, NO FUTURE,
AND A DEAD CAREER.

HOW'S THAT SOUND?

- I'M NOT YOU, SUNNY.

I'M NOTHING LIKE YOU.

- [chuckles]

THEN WHY ARE YOU
SO SCARED?

- YOU HAVE RIGHTS,
DETECTIVE QADRI.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
TO REMAIN SILENT

ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN
AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU

IN A COURT OF LAW

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
TO AN ATTORNEY.

IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD ONE,

ONE WILL BE APPOINTED
TO YOU.
