Plot Overview

A death threat mailed to Tony at his office doesn't rattle him at first, but when he receives another threat at his home, he begins to worry about his family. The threats have a residual effect when the parents of Rachel's students start pulling their kids out of school for their safety, and ultimately, the Principal orders her to stop teaching until the threats end, which in turn causes friction between her and Tony. On the plus side, Arnie, Tony's freeloading brother-in-law, leaves temporarily until the threats end. Back at the precinct, Tony and his men try to gather evidence against a poacher who shot a deer illegally and out of season, but it soon becomes a comedy of errors trying to get bullets from the dead animal to use as evidence. Noting that animal rights protesters have gathered outside the station, Tony pulls a ruse using the poacher's mug shot that gets a confession.
