Storyline

The infant baby of Sam and Anne Bennett is critically hurt after been hit by a bottle thrown by a gang of juvenile-delinquent hoodlums known as the Wolf Pack. Police Detective Tom Lynn takes charge of the investigation and orders shakedown of youth gangs in the city's toughest section, but this fails to locate members of the Wolf-Pack gang. A savage beating is given an innocent witness by Bennett, who takes matters in his own hands in the belief that the law authorities are too slow. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

It takes a while before reality is suspended in this one.

This begins with Wolf-Pack gang members...no, wait it begins with a prologue spoken by Tennessee Senator Estes Kefauver saying..."When young people become angry and violent, it affects the whole community...your town and mine. Anger breeds anger, until finally it sweeps over all age groups. Here now, is a story of how one police department in a great American city fought to bring this destructive human fire under control"...and then Wolf-Pack gang members Paul Dubov, James Delgado, and Spanley Clements go "on the town" and make an unprovoked attack on a young family.

The infant baby of Keefe Brasselle and Cathy O'Donnell is critically hurt after been hit by a bottle thrown by the hoodlums. Police Detective Frank Lovejoy takes charge of the investigation. Orders shakedown of youth gangs in the city's toughest section---pick up Aaron Spelling for one---but this fails to locate members of the Wolf-Pack gang. Savage beating is given innocent witness by Brasselle, who takes matters in his own hands in the belief that the law authorities are too slow. Plausible. Brasselle slugs Lovejoy and rushes out to make a one-man probe of the gang. Still plausible. Brasselle locates Karen Sharpe, girlfriend of the Wolf-Packers, and she says she likes being useful and what can she do for Brasselle. He asks her to get him into the gang.

Karen Sharpe is leaning over her bed and asks Brasselle what can she do to be "useful" and all he asks for is an address? Not plausible.
