Character mistake: When Harry walks up to look in the car which Ricca and his men were shot in, he places his hands on the driver's side and back seat passenger's side window sill, while the crime scene is being investigated. No senior Inspector like Harry would do this. (00:09:40)

Trivia: After Lou Guzman is killed by a police officer, we cut to a scene where Charlie McCoy is confronted by the officer who shoots him dead in the process. In this scene McCoy was played by another actor as Mitchell Ryan was too ill to film his death scene.

Question: I'm not sure if he already suspected them at the time, but why exactly did Harry want to take Davis and Sweet to arrest the gangster?

JohnShel91

Answer: Because Davis and Sweet demonstrated keen interest, skill and knowledge of firearms (particularly of Harry's .44 Magnum) when they first met. They were flattering Harry, probably in anticipation of inviting him to join their death squad. Harry was impressed and asked for them specifically, even though they were rookies, but he didn't suspect them of being the vigilante killers at that point.
