So, basically, the premise of this show is that the various law enforcement agencies in the US are incompetent and have a total lack of inter-agency communication or cooperation. Instead they're engaged in an endless series of pissing contests. Meanwhile minor criminals (or non-criminals) get completely screwed by the whole "We'll let you off the hook if you become an informant" deal.
Tonight’s new screw-ee is Salomon. He works at a bank, launders money, and informs on people to the DEA and ICE, depending on who asks him to do a job. When we first meet him, he’s the buyer in an undercover operation, there on behalf the DEA and–big shock–the seller is also undercover, working with ICE. Fortunately, no one dies, but some poor restaurant got trashed.
