The Bro code.
The idea of "all for one and one for all" takes on an entirely different meaning on Chicago PD Season 6 Episode 10.
Personally, I'm not fond of how the series portrays brotherhood and loyalty because it's wishy-washy.
Everyone should learn from Olinksy's mistake.
He was loyal to his longtime friend Voight on Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 21 by taking the fall in a murder investigation, and while it was a noble gesture, it also cost him his life.
Voight wasn't joking when he said this kind of loyalty comes with a price.
Voight: Who the hell do you think you are? You don't protect me. I protect you. That's my job. I'm the one who allowed Antonio to be there. This is on me. From this point on, you don't say another word about this, you get me?
Ruzek: Yes, sir.

I would have expected Ruzek just to tell the truth and throw Antonio under the bus (some might say that's well-deserved) to protect his boss.

And while I'm sure Antonio wouldn't want anyone taking the fall for him, he let it happen. That's not only upsetting but hypocritical on his part as he's always preaching about playing by the rules.
Will he come clean once he finds out about Ruzek's sacrifice?
I understand that Ruzek is just trying to save everyone, but why wouldn't the person who put them in the tight spot have to be held accountable?
There were many other times the bro code took precedence over logic on this series; however, Ruzek ignoring all reason was the one that did it for me.
It's one thing to be loyal to your boss, but it's another thing to go above his orders deliberately.
So many people were trying to talk Ruzek out of taking the fall, and Platt had probably the most convincing argument: Voight would find a way out of this.
He always does.

Ruzek? Not so much.
Sure, corporal would attempt to dig up all incriminating evidence on Voight, but he's also Voight.
He can handle his own battles, he has friends in high places, his name carries weight, and he knows how to make deals and negotiate. That's how he's gotten so far despite his unconventional tactics.
The one thing everyone in Intelligence needs to realize is that Voight is untouchable; he does not need his team to take one for him.
So, as Platt pointed out, y..
