Spotting an addict talking to a police officer, two dope pushers beat him to death, but a veteran detective played by Andrew Duggan is suspected of the cop's death, and is suspended. When a newsman takes up the cry of police brutality, a riot threatens to break out. This episode reflected the high level of unrest that would result in riots in Detroit and Newark later that year.
