Chicago PD Season 8 Episode 8: "Protect and Serve" Quotes

Whelan: I’m not the criminal here.

Whelan: I defended myself.
Atwater: From a college student?
Whelan: I had the right to defend my life.
Atwater: From what?
Ruzek: Kev, don’t.

Atwater: Just let it go? He’s standing in front of you too.
Ruzek: All I’m saying is we might be here awhile. None of this is helping. All I’m saying.
Atwater: We gotta stop hiding behind…
Ruzek: Behind what?
Atwater: Being white.
Ruzek: Being white? Really…
Atwater: You don’t gotta be Black to know wrong from right.
