Monolithic accusations are bad for cops and communities
There are 8 million stories in the naked city. Each crime is the story of individual guilt and individual suffering. Each action by the police — for good or for ill — can be an individual story of heroism or wrongdoing. There is nothing more deeply personal than crime and punishment. And as we know, whether from Sherlock Holmes or Harry Bosch, each character is a mix of imperfections, to be judged not by his purity but by his actions and intentions and where these fall on the scales of justice.
