Storyline

Friday and Gannon are working out of the juvenile division when they get called to a movie theater to investigate an attack on a high school student who had acid thrown on his back. The suspect is another boy named Gerald Paulson, who is emotionally disturbed. Later, Gerald has an argument with his stepfather and runs out of the house carrying a live hand grenade. Eventually, Friday and Gannon trail him to a house where a girl he attends high school with is throwing a party and he is holding them hostage and threatening to pull the pin. It is now up to the two detectives to get the grenade out of his hands before he kills himself and seriously wounds several other people. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Dragnet Predicts the Future once Again.
17 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode includes a scene where Friday and Gannon discuss whether some kids are born sour or not. Then they discuss how parents are giving their kids too much - too soon.

All true - all too true.

Once again Dragnet predicts the future of what was to become of the spoiled "Baby Boomers" - and now we understand why today's teenagers are lost to the world.

Why - we as a society paid attention to Sociologists instead of the Police who had to deal with all the day to day problems in real time - not in some long terms study where you never actually meet the people who have taken the wrong turns in life - is beyond me.
