To Protect and Serve is a 1992 action thriller directed by Eric Weston. The film follows the Detroit police detective Philip Egan (played by C. Thomas Howell) who is considered to be a loose cannon by his boss when he refuses to ignore the awful abuses his fellow officers in the police force have been committing. However he himself is facing charges of sexual harassment. Regardless of this Egen is determined to get justice for an unarmed suspect he saw get beaten to death by other cops. To do this he must battle broad corruption within the force, as well as suspicion. Meanwhile all throughout this a serial killer has been targeting the cops of Detroit. This film went straight to video when it was released. The film features a pretty heavy twist ending that won't be spoiled here.
