Agreed Goren has had a bad start in life. That set the stage for some of his bad choices in adult life. He knows he has father issues and authority issues but that didn't stop him from letting that get to him when he went after Croyden. There have been other examples over the span of the episodes Croyden is merely one. Sometimes he uses his bad start in life to his advantage. Sometimes he seems blind to how those early problems are impacting a case and/or his judgment. All in all I have to vote for his wounds being self inflicted.
As to Copa......I would have thought he would have had some jail time considering he abandoned his post for a sexual encounter with a groupie and as a result his partner was shot and killed. He then lied during the investigation. He lied about where he was, what he was doing and what he saw. He implicated an innocent man as the killer. Granted the innocent man was a thug but he was innocent of the cop killing. Copa had a physical impairment to a such a degree that he was a danger to himself and his fellow officers yet he continued to operate on the front line. He put everyone around him at serious risk.
so you have dereliction of duty, impeding an investigation and whatever else goes with the rest of it. If it had gone to court Copa would have been lying on the stand committing perjury to send the innocent thug to jail and perhaps a death penalty. Yeah, Copa should have lost his pension, his job and spent some time in jail for his actions. Yet the boys in blue circled the wagons and took up his cause. It is not a boys club.....it is a pack, with a pack mentality.
