the new centurions

In the movie, The New Centurions, it shows the good, the bad, and the evil. It is a good
reality movie that give you a feel for policing in LA. Even though it is out dated, the
same things happen today in our society that happen in the movie.

Roy Fehler, a rookie cop out of the police academy is assigned with Andy Kilvinski, a
veteran cop. They got a good relationship started right in the beginning. The only bad
thing that I saw was the fact that Roy was being exposed to the bad habits of Andy. Since
Andy is training him he thinks these habits are alright. As Roy's mentor and partner, Andy
teaches him a lot including most of Mr. Wilson's four principles, the primary objectives,
and the three B's ; booze, broads, bribes. Kilvinski showed Roy in many ways that the
right and wrong aren't always black and white. And the fact that life isn't fair. Roy and
Andy become very close over the coarse of five years. And even afer Andy retires and moved
away he came back to live. Andy then shot him self because of all the stress that he had
came across over the years. I believe when he came back in town, he had seen all the guys
at the police station and missed it. Also seeing a guy he trained (Roy) train someone
else. Before he shot himself he called Roy and told him a story about an old man on the
porch. This old man symbolizes loneliness. I believe Andy became that old man on the
porch. He became very lonely and had no family or friends. He and Roy were friends but it
seemed that Roy had no time for Andy. Andy was a cop and that was the most important thing
to him.
