Scummy narcotics cop Stan Mizelll's autopsy shows he died full of illegal drugs, and his safe deposit box turns out to have a couple of ounces of coke, $40,000 in mint 100s, and a pair of fur-lined handcuffs. At the funeral, Councilmember Detweiler tells Furillo, who he'd previously demanded choose sides, that he's going to bury him and Chief Daniels with the Mizell revelations, but Furillo argues for Fuchs anyway, even after dressing him privately down about Mizell's lack of supervision.

Fay is intolerable
25 June 2019 | by polite-45692See all my reviews
