Development Pitch

Police Officer - protagonist - becomes disillusioned with those around him also in uniform. His agency learns of his disillusionment and attempts to kill him, only to make him a hero to the public. The protagonist discovers that he himself is not adverse to violence when he believes his violent actions have a noble end, seeking revenge on his former partners in uniform. A journalist who had been researching the association between anti-government militias and White Supremacist groups and law enforcement, aids our protagonist on his quest for revenge.
