Storyline

When Gillespie returns home from being away at a police convention, Virgil, Bubba and rest of the squad go to his house to give him a surprise welcome home party. When they arrive they find the house in shambles and Joanne unconscious with a bullet wound. However, the bigger shock is that the chief is missing. Even though it looks as if the chief was kidnapped by African-Americans, Virgil and Bubba soon suspect that acting chief Tom Duggan had something to do with it, but their investigation is thwarted by an FBI agent. She then reveals that Duggan is an FBI operative investigating the activities of a white supremacist organization called the Brotherhood of Aryan People (BOAP), who have recruited his Godson. Now, Duggan's life is in danger because the group think he is now a liability. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>
