These debriefings, which occur after every mission, are blunt and confrontational. Tempers sometimes flare. Here, away from lawyers and suspects, the officers don't sugarcoat their feelings. Off-color jokes relieve some of the anxiety.

"It wasn't in close enough. What happened?" asks one detective. The driver explains that a civilian got in his way at the last moment.
