A somehow-pushover swat-whatever officer becomes embroiled in southern USA drug stuff.

The people of Detroit are being forcefully evicted and relocated to a corporate-owned city.

A cop's early investigation into a police fund theft has him killed, leaving his framed hostage-negotiator partner to use the only tool he has available to find the real killer.

A really great movie with a unique topic. Recommended.
