I enjoy the show... but I am confused sometimes at the moodswings of Brenda.
In this episode she is 100% behind and orchestrating the essential-execution of that guy for his crimes... but a couple of weeks earlier was all "by the book" when looking for Sanchez' brother's killer. Where was the cop-justice then?
Similarly, the business last season with the guy who was beaten into confessing about the rape/murder of that young black girl... Brenda was once again by the book (although she did help cover up the indiscretion of beating the prisoner)... but back in a previous season she helped ensure that the 17 year old who had killed a Mexican citizen was left to rot (or more likely be executed) in that Mexican prison after he had fled there.
I'm not making moral declarations here, mind you... but it confuses me from one episode to the next when characters have no problem jumping over the line in one scenario but in a similar scenario build a wall up and stop everyone from crossing the line.
I actually empathise with the line crossing many times... but the almost righteous "we must follow the law" mantra in other situations seems hypocritical.
