Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 2: "Uncertainty Principle" Quotes
Robinette: Have you ever been arrested?

Robinette: Goes to credibility, your Honor.
Judge: I'll allow it.
Witness: No, I have never been arrested.
Robinette: Has anyone in your family ever been arrested?
Witness: Yes. My brother James. He was on the El.
Robinette: What was your brother James doing on the El?
Witness: They said he was disturbing the peace. His teacher had given him a ticket to United to see the Bulls. I guess a black man sitting on the El disturbed some people.
Atwater: You want me to say it's okay, you tried your best, Antonio? Nothing makes this okay. I got a badge, I'm guilty. Simple as that.
Antonio: You don't know that.

Frick: Cell phone videos of Justin Wilkes' arrest from people who otherwise would not have come forward.
Jeffries: I suppose we should be glad they haven't been posted on the Internet.
Frick: These are good people. They don't want to get involved with the cops.
Jeffries: Meaning cops aren't good people?
Frick: These videos give definite evidence, Mark. Justin Wilkes was murdered.
Carerra: When I was in the cell with Wilkes, he might have said a cop hit him.
Valdez: Might have?
Carerra: Depends on what you got for me.
Antonio: No one's saying you did anything wrong, Atwater.
Atwater: No, but it seems like you're working me over. Ask, 'Officer Atwater, did you kill Justin Wilkes?' No, investigator, I didn't. See how easy that is?

Atwater: The suspect was resisting arrest, so I used reasonable physical force to subdue him. End of story.
