  • QUOTES (1)

    • Reed: (after surviving a gun fight with four armed burglars) Malloy?

      Malloy: Yeah.

      Reed: Just one thing. Did you know your gun was empty?

      Malloy: Yeah, I knew it. Trouble was, if I had stopped to reload, I could've wound up dead!

      Reed: Ya know that stuff the Sgt. was talkin' about today..officer presence? I guess I just got the message!

  • NOTES (1)

    • In this episode, it's shown that Malloy and Reed are back on the road again patrolling immediately after the gun fight with the burglars. In reality, what is not seen in this episode is that Reed, Malloy, and Brinkman would be tied up at the scene for hours. First securing the suspects, clearing the rest of the building to make sure there was no one else there to get hurt or to hurt others, then mark their "brass", where their shots were fired from. Anytime an officer fires his weapon, a shooting team must come out and evaluate the shooting to justify it. There would be interviews by the shooting team, walk-throughs, superiors would arrive and have to be briefed, union attorneys would also come and evaluate the shooting scene before it was cleared up for future legal issues, the bodies of the deceased suspects would remain until the detectives arrived, who would interview the officers and get their story while it was fresh in their memory, etc. They would most likely be there until the end of their shift and even later. Then most departments have a policy that would put officers who discharge their weapons, especially if there was a death involved, on mandatory paid leave or a desk position until the department's Internal Affairs Department had finished their own investigation and cleared the officers for street duty again.
