Name:Vic Mackey
Location:Los Angeles, California, United States of America
Nah, good cop and bad cop left for the day, I'm a different kinda cop.

Mackey is a corrupt yet effective police officer; he steals from drug dealers, beats suspects and has committed murder on three occasions. Two of the victims were violent gangsters, though the first was an undercover officer trying to put Mackey and his team behind bars. Mackey sees his tactics as a means to an end.

Vic Mackey's morality is a classic example of dualism. While he has a solid status as a family man, he has cheated on his wife with a number of women (including fellow officer Danny Sofer). He is sworn to uphold the law, yet regularly breaks it for professional and personal gain. Mackey's personality is often viewed as amoral or machiavellian, believing that "the ends justify the means." However, this may also lead to his downfall, which he has narrowly avoided throughout the course of the series.

[Vic Mackey belongs to Shawn Ryan and his show The Shield. Muse and mun are over 18 and given the nature of Vic and his canon there will be adult content within.]
