The rotation may not be a perfect system*, but it's a system and even good systems can start to break down when there's a rogue element hell bent on rocking the boat. Notice that nobody (not even the cops who so far have been portrayed as being more competent/sympathetic) seems particularly happy about what McNulty did. Nobody's reaction is "well it's about damned time!" Instead they range from annoyed to astonished to mildly amused.
Good insight! How many times have you seen this pilot episode? You seem so wise!
Will something come of the 2 male officers missing a gun and mishandling the paperwork? I am guessing this was just to show them as incompetent compared to their female counterpart
