Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A white youth is killed in a black neighborhood after a botched drug deal. The victim's racist father (Thomas G. Waites) arouses the ire of Lt. Fancy (James McDaniel), resulting in a controversial confrontation. Elsewhere, Greg (Gordon Clapp) and Jill (Andrea Thompson) investigate when an African-born youth finds his mother's butchered body in their refrigerator. And while taking sick leave, Diane (Kim Delaney) suffers a miscarriage. When originally telecast, this episode ended with a surprise musical rendition by the entire cast of "Stop in the Name of Love" (running during the end credits), as a promotion for an upcoming network special commemorating the 40th anniversary of Motown.
