Anyone who’s familiar with law-enforcement tactics knows that good cops get nowhere without their bad-cop counterparts and that bad cops would get canned if their good-cop pals didn’t keep them in line. Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) defies convention. He’s a good guy, for sure. But they don’t call him Dirty for nothing. He won’t follow the law, but he isn’t corrupt. A lawyer (or concerned citizen) might point out that, for all his do-gooding, he has the unfortunate habit of leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. But supporters counter that Harry’s victims are (mostly) the bad guys. So is he a good cop or a bad cop? Let the facts be the judge.
