* ContrivedCoincidence: Alonzo leaves Jake to die with exactly the wrong set of gangbangers. (Possibly a subversion as the plan seemed to be to set Jake up if he turned out not to be dirty and perhaps Alonzo remembered [subconsciously?] the name of the gang that the girl had mentioned from earlier and simply selected the easy option to dispose of his problem.)

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]].

** 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"]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheCorrupter: Virtually every police officer is corrupt and not at all shy about extortion, robbery and murder. The DA's team is not that much better.

* CloudCuckooLander: The rather eccentric Sniper comes across this way. But it's soon apparent he's [[AxCrazy nowhere near harmless]].

Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: A doozy. Jake looks out the window to see Alonzo's car gone. He instantly realizes that Alonzo has left him there to be killed.

* PetTheDog: After Jake saves the girl from the rapists, Alonzo seems impressed, to the point where he tells a sullen Jake that he did good.
