. Precinct captain Frank Daniels
(Bruce McGill) is pissed, so he reassigns Orin to 15th precinct - the worst precinct in the city. Amidst attending anger management classes, Orin begins to suspect that local affluent drug dealer Latrell Walker (Earl "DMX" Simmons) and his fast-talking sidekick T.K. Johnson (Anthony Anderson
) are engaged in shady business. However, he turns out to be wrong. Actually, it's corrupt police who are running the precinct's drug trade.
Thus, he and his new partner George Clark (Isaiah Washington) set out to stop them.
