Here is the plot description for “Brooklyn’s Finest”:

In the course of one chaotic week, the lives of three conflicted New York City police officers are dramatically transformed by their involvement in a massive drug operation in “Brooklyn’s Finest”: a searing new crime drama from acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”).

Burned-out veteran Eddie Dugan (Richard Gere) is just one week away from his pension and a fishing cabin in Connecticut.

Narcotics officer Sal Procida (Ethan Hawke) has discovered there’s no line he won’t cross to provide a better life for his long-suffering wife and seven children. And Clarence “Tango” Butler (Don Cheadle) has been undercover so long his loyalties have started to shift from his fellow police officers to his prison buddy, Caz (Wesley Snipes), who is one of Brooklyn’s most infamous drug dealers.

With personal and work pressures bearing down on them, each man faces daily tests of judgment and honor in one of the world’s most difficult jobs. When NYPD’s Operation Cleanup targets the notoriously drug-ridden BK housing project, all three officers find themselves swept away by the violence and corruption of Brooklyn’s gritty 65th Precinct and its most treacherous criminals.

During seven fateful days, Eddie, Sal and Tango find themselves hurtling inextricably toward the same fatal crime scene and a shattering collision with destiny. The film captures the volatile and deadly world of one of New York’s most dangerous precincts through the eyes of the men and women pledged to protect and serve as they face the wrenching choices that make them Brooklyn’s finest.

“Brooklyn’s Finest” stars Golden Globe winner Richard Gere (“Amelia,” “Internal Affairs”), Oscar nominee Don Cheadle (“Hotel Rwanda,” “Crash”), Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke (“Training Day,” “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”), Wesley Snipes (“New Jack City”), Will Patton (“The Fourth Kind”), Lili Taylor (“Public Enemies”), Brian F. O’Byrne (“The International”) and Shannon Kane (“Blood and Bone”) with Ellen Barkin (“Ocean’s Thirteen”).

It is written by Michael C. Martin. Producers are Basil Iwanyk (“We Are Marshall”), John Langley (“Leaves of Grass”), Elie Cohn (“88 Minutes”), John Thompson (“Rambo”) and Avi Lerner (“Ninja”). Joe Napolitano and Kat Samick (“Shooter”) are co-producers. Antoine Fuqua, Robert Greenhut (“The Departed”), Jesse Kennedy (“Wild Cherry”) and Mary Viola (“Lost Boys: The Tribe”) are executive producers.

Patrick Murguia (“Fuera del Cielo”) is director of photography. Editor is Barbara Tulliver (“Lady in the Water”). Production designer is Thérèse DePrez (“Fighting”). Costume designer is Juliet Polcsa (“Paper Man”). Original music is by Marcelo Zarvos (“Lost Boys: The Tribe”).

I am not certain what selling out a police force entails, but I believe one of the duties of law officers is to uphold justice. If somehow selling a police force out was being done to uphold justice, then maybe I would if I had the balls.

In the long run the democratic societies work because law, order and justice system works. This is what is different about us in the USA and others. No I would not sell out never ever.
