rampartNothing  fascinates like a dirty cop. In real life they’re terrifying, but in the movies  their upending of law and order can open deep explorations of psychology,  morality and violence.

So meet Dave Brown, Brown is a cop long ago unleashed from the rules of the Los  Angeles Police Department. Roving the streets in his black-and-white cruiser, he  governs and punishes at will. His home life is a riddle. Somehow he has fathered  children with two sisters. Somehow he still lives casually with them both,  slipping in and out of a family life thats as tangled as his long career on the  force. His own daughter calls him Date Rape. Thats because, years ago, Brown may  have killed a rapist and gotten away with it. The shadow of the incident still  haunts him, so when his Rampart division gets caught up in a corruption scandal,  Brown makes an easy target. As the controversy seeps through the department and  into city hall, this hardened, reckless officer finds himself at the centre of a  sordid L.A. story.
