** Jake and Alonzo argue over "street justice" when the latter doesn't even attempt to take in the attempted rapists of a high-school girl, and and himself notes that they'll probably be killed by the gangsters she's related to. Alonzo even says that they hope that the "scum sort each out", as it gives the LAPD less work to deal with. [[spoiler: It seems out of all the lessons Alonzo taught him, Jake took this one to heart, as by the end, Jake has Alonzo at gunpoint - the latter as much a scumbag as those he fights, when a GangBanger assures him that they'll deal with him, and he can leave. Jake complies and leaving him to "street justice"]].

* FlatWhat: Alonzo gives this when Bone walks back to grab his gun, and tells Jake he's free to go, and what he'll take care of things from here, holding Alonzo at gunpoint.


Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: Jake Hoyt. As shown as early as when he prevents two drug-addicts from raping a teenage girl. Alonzo even notes that he applied an illegal chokehold on one of them, [[BaddieFlattery and applauds him for it]]. Later during his final confrontation with [[spoiler:Alonzo]], he beats him up, holds him at gunpoint, and shoots him in the buttocks, [[spoiler:after he hired three GangBangers to kill him]].


Added DiffLines:

* YouWouldntShootMe: In the climax, Alonzo taunts [[spoiler:Jake]] as the latter holds him at gunpoint, calling his bluff on shooting a police officer, even going as far as turning around and walking to grab the gun of a GangBanger laid on the ground to shoot him. [[spoiler:[[GoodIsNotSoft He finds out the hard way that Jake would shoot him]]. [[ShotInTheAss In the ass]]. He even warns him what would happen if he tries a stunt like that again]].
-->'''Jake:''' The next one ''will'' kill you.

* BulletsDoNotWorkThatWay: The result of a shootout after "searching"/robbing a house in the ghetto is a back window with a few bullet holes. There is no visible damage done to the vehicle anywhere else, or to the occupants who should have been included in their trajectory.

* ForcedFriendlyFire: Jake is trying to bring Alonzo (who's currently unarmed) to justice. But as he's climbing over a railing, Alonzo gets the drop on him and causes Jake's gun to be discharged into the local projects (the Jungle), thereby turning the confrontation into a fist fight. [[FridgeBrilliance This act was probably the final straw for the disillusioned people living on that street, considering Alonzo's history of using them for his own needs]].
