A police inspector hires the A-Team to shut down a group of crooked SWAT police officers who moonlight as assassins-for-hire. To eavesdrop on the group and gather as much information as possible on their targets, Face and Amy con their way into the police locker room and sew tiny microphones onto the renegade officers' uniforms. Hannibal then proceeds to rattle their cages with a series of phone calls and interruptions until the microphones are discovered. Their edge lost, the officers and the A-Team barrel head on to their final confrontation -- a showdown at a deserted amusement park! Written by R. Bernard Ment
