Magnum Force

You sure you don't want a local for this?
Takes about seven stitches.

No, thanks.
Okay, it's your ass.
My head, cut's on my head.
Why does everybody suddenly
become a comedian in here?

Does he have to stay in here?
No, l could stop and let the man's
brains run out all over his shoes.

Rogers, l don't need to have a doctor
display that kind of attitude.

A police officer is dead.
l got those warrants
for a search of the premises, Callahan...

...not for you to become
judge, jury and executioner.

lt was supposed to be a simple arrest.
Arresting a killer like Palancio
isn't always simple.

People are guilty until proven--
l mean....
Goddamn it, you know what l mean.
The city's on the edge
of the worst violence in its history...

...and you have to start
full-scale military operations.

l didn't start shooting at anyone
who didn't start shooting at me first.

Each time you pull out that gun,
my paperwork backs up for three months.

The chief and l have already
conferred on this matter.

A full investigation is warranted here.
What about a dead cop?
-l warned you against taking them.
-Sweet was killed with the first shot.

Besides they were tipped off.
They knew we were coming, Briggs.

How? Don't hand me that crap.
They knew we were coming.
After 200 arrests, l know the difference.

lf l have my way, Callahan, you won't make
another arrest as long as you live.

ls that all, Lieutenant?
No, that's not all.
l want that slug you showed me.
l ran that through ballistics, it was nothing.
The rifling was totally different.

lt's still State's evidence.
l want it anyway.
