Cooper's "Legacy" unfolded as he got his 20 year pin from the LAPD. Of course he'd been on the job almost 22 years. Isn't that just how these things work?

Cooper and Tang were again my favorite duo tonight as they dealt with all the crazies.  In what other job can you take a report from a woman who claims her son is Jesus Christ and he' been kidnapped because Judas betrayed him.
