So he'd like him if in reality he played the part of the good cop, but took bribes and worked closely with criminals and gangsters to manage crime better than fighting them would and just conveniently lining his pockets in the process?
lol sounds like another way to say corrupt cop to me.
I'm thinking of a well off woman, her husband was rich(much of this money is likely to have come from more recent real estate deals. His early wealth was from Alcohol distribution and figures and activities unknown. Basing him on someone from that time period) but an abusive cheating asshole. So she plotted with her brother I'm thinking to kill him, they couldn't prove she had anything to do with so she got all of her husbands money and holdings and so forth. Still not sure if I want to make it her brother, or some man she tricked into it...debating.
But totally open for links if someone wants to plot with me.
