Abstract:

"This hour long dramatic series portrays police work in a decaying section of a big city. ... The racially-mixed Hill Street area presents special problems to the precinct captain, Frank Furillo, who attempts to control crime and maintain order while preserving the civil rights and human dignity of the citizens he protects."--1981 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. In this episode, Furillo and Washington investigate the shooting of an unarmed, black youth by Charlie Weeks, a racist narcotics detective, who claims he was acting in self defense after being shot at by another black youth. La Rue's drinking causes several near death accidents, including Belker nearly being shot because La Rue failed to answer his call for back-up. Hill and Renko try to help Shirret, a young black woman accused of neglecting her children.
