The clip Richie is asked to join the new narcotics burearu from American Gangster (2007)
In order to fight and defeat this enemy,
it is necessary to wage a new, all-out offensive:
Federal authorities have announced their intention
to establish special narcotics bureaus
in Washington, New York, Los �ngeles, Chicago:::
A detective without the support of his fellow detectives
really can't do much.
You know why I don't have it.
Doesn't matter. You did what you had to do.
Greatest city in the world! And it's turning into an open sewer.
Everybody's stealing, dealing.
Look at you. You can't work because you did your job.
Good news is, you're not the only honest cop in town.
The special narcotics bureau in Washington is not a dog and pony show.
They are sincere. I know this because they want us to orchestrate it.
And I want you to head up things here on our end.
If it's federal, who do I answer to, the post office?
No, you answer to me,
me and the US Attorney, nobody else.
You never step foot in a police station again.
You work out of your own place, you pick your own guys,
guys that you know would not take a nickel off the sidewalk.
