Plot Overview

Walker and Trivette lead a raid on a warehouse that is run by the Bodine Brothers, two arms dealers. After gathering enough evidence against the brothers and presenting them in court, the case against the Bodines is dismissed on a technicality. Naturally Walker, Trivette,and Alex - who had brought the case into court - are visibly upset. The Bodine brothers walk out of the courtroom smug. Walker vows to get them next time. The Bodines, however, do not plan to stay around long enough for Walker to arrest then again as they makes plans to leave the country. They do get the chance to leave as both Bodine brothers are killed. One, while he had been jogging; and the other, as he was about to get into his car. The murders committed were not by rival criminals, but by two Brookdale County policemen: Sergeant Bob Horne and Officer Foster. Along with another Brookdale policeman, Sgt. Ross, they have become frustrated with the technicalities of the law which allows criminals to be set free. These three would later place an explosive device on a bus containing early released inmates. The explosive kills all but the bus driver. Walker and Trivette are investgating this, believing that a group of Brookdale police officers are behind this and the recent murders. While Walker and Trivette are looking into these cases, a young man, whom Walker had helped out of a gang and into a better life (the young man even joined the Marine Corps), Ernesto Lopez, has been arrested for statutory rape. With a sample of Ernesto's DNA, which will prove his innocence, Ernesto will be released and all charges against him dropped. Meanwhile, the vigilante bad cops are going over a list of alledged sex offenders and will be going after them. The first name on their list is Ernesto Lopez, who was already out on bail and going to his mother's house. Will Ernesto become the next victim of the Death Squad? Will Walker pursue the Death Squad to put an end to their own brand of cleaning up crime? Watch and find out.
