Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Randall Chase who was found bludgeoned to death with a softball bat at the Haven, the community center that he ran. Chase was highly respected in the community showing many youth gang members a different path for themselves. The police suspect that he may have crossed a gang member and they learn he did accept a $5000 donation from a local hood Ricky Carter that now can't be accounted for. The police arrest Jerome Warren, now a college student thanks to the help Chase gave him. However, there is every indication that Warren was failing at school, something that was not reflected in the As that he received at the end of term. Warren is charged with murder but the defense attorney tries to use affirmative action as part of his defense. Written by garykmcd
