Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The inner-city activist who had previously elicited a racist remark from Sipowicz (Dennis Franz), thereby triggering a media firestorm, is found murdered. Much to the dismay of the activist's constituents, Sipowicz is assigned to investigate the killing. Before this episode is over, the viewer will learn yet another secret in the turbulent past of Andy Sipowicz. And elsewhere, Martinez (Nicholas Turturro) and Medavoy (Gordon Clapp) can't get a murder witness to cooperate. This episode earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing.
