Betraying The Badge Preview & Spoiler
The second season will talk about the hidden life of a group of police officers who have their lives strangled in an illegal business for a fictional mob boss. The corrupted police officers keep their lives at stake to smuggle illegal drugs, stolen art pieces, and guns. The series shows how the group of four, including three convicted police officers and an undercover agent, becomes “emblems of corruption.” The corruption of police officers is not a myth, and this season will show people exactly that. It’s sad to see real-life stories where truth does seem stranger than fiction.
The first episode of this season, “Diamonds and Dirty Cops,” featured a jewelry theft ring that was tied to a former police officer. The ex-Police Chief of Chicago was managing the ring that was later investigated by the FBI. William Hanhardt, the ex-Police chief, along with his right-hand man Joseph Basinski, was found to be behind this jewelry theft ring. In this episode, Ted McNamara, the FBI agent, takes it upon himself to reveal the story of their investigation.
Episode 2, “The Dirty 30,” goes back to the year 1994. This episode deals with the corrupted NYPD police officers from the 30th Precinct in Harlem. Stories of these officers who were associated with a breach of civil rights, lying under oath, and other serious infringements of law like theft and drug dealing. The stories remind people that even the protectors are completely capable of lying under their oath and betraying the sacred badge.
