Capt. Frank McNeil: Hey, wait a minute, hold on. We're down here to talk to you about a case. You've got this set up like an inquisition.

Unusual partnership
22 June 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode is a great illustration of why when one is a cop one should not take the job too personally. It's the hardest thing you can do, especially for someone like Theo Kojak.

Telly Savalas has it in big time for Madison Arnold because an innocent civilian was badly and permanently injured in a crime Arnold was committing. After a stoolie tips off Kojak and a search is conducted Arnold then counters with saying Kojak solicited a bribe.

This particular episode is a great example of why I told my nephew not to go into the NYPD. Even a Theo Kojak has to put up with this.

In fact with James Luisi as an internal affairs captain, Internal Affairs and the Manhattan South Squad have to work together to both catch a crook in the act of a crime and clear Kojak. Makes for an unusual partnership.
