Good Cop, Bad Daughter's Karen Lynch was raised by a counter-culture tribe in summer of love Haight-Ashbury, where she was taught to despise -The Man.- But when the San Francisco Police Department was court ordered to hire women, she found herself compelled to prove to the world that women could cut it as cops, a betrayal that caused her police-loathing mother to brand her a Nazi.
