    • (Having heard of Green's actions against Otum, Van Buren calls him and Briscoe into her office.)
      Anita Van Buren: You're on desk.
      (Green sighs)
      Lennie Briscoe: Hey, a week or so tops. It'll all be straightened out.
      Anita Van Buren: Excuse me. Both of you. (to Briscoe) You were the only witness. (to Green) Otum names the city, the department, and you individually in his suit. He claims you profiled him.
      Ed Green: Right. He's a drug dealer and a murderer!
      Anita Van Buren: And he's black!
      Ed Green: Have you looked at me recently?!
      Anita Van Buren: (lifts a finger) He also claims that you never identified yourselves as cops!
      Lennie Briscoe: Come on! I said police!
      Anita Van Buren: And the icing on the cake is the pounding he took with snapshots to prove it!
      (She shows her detectives the snapshots.)
