Why did Stallworth have to continue pretending being a white man on the phone when Flip could have taken over completely
Why have a black cop pretending to be a white guy on the phone when they could have just as easily have a white guy handle the phone. Especially when you have the added advantage of not sounding like 2 different people on phone and face-to-face.
I'm not sure of the real life version of events but the movie looked like it was bending over backwards to have Stallworth as part of the plot. Logically, the police chief would have just taken Stallworth off the case and put Flip on it so as not to risk jeopardizing it.
