so ive been re-watching bits and peices training day the past few days and im really understanding denzels character more and more every time i watch it. he has the right idea of being a wolf to protect the sheep. he just has problems that prevents him from taking advantage of this knowledge, mainly being a manipulative scheming hothead. but i feel like his redeemable traits speak louder than his faults. hes still that naïve rookie wanting to save the world taking out one bad guy at a time but covering that is all the abuse hes seen and taken on the streets. he knows what this world is and what it aint. it aint built for nice guys and good guys, he knows they always die first. he knows when it comes down to it, u gotta do what u gotta do in order to survive in the streets.
