While Troop is gone, Johnny tries to arrest a local man, Bill Watts, accused of Stealing $36 and two junkie watches. When the man refuses to give up, Johnny is forced to kill him. Bill's younger brother Jessie, who Johnny grew up with, picks up Bill's gun and forces Johnny to shoot and kill him as well. The stress from it causes Johnny to quit. Troop doesn't want to force Johnny to stay so he hires Harry Jensen but Jensen's rough personality irritates Johnny. When Jensen uses excess force in the Birdcage on two cowhands from a cattle drive, the victims return with several co-workers to teach Jensen a lesson. When Jensen folds under the pressure and Troop is outnumbered, Johnny stops them with the stage driver's shotgun. The stage leaves and Johnny decides to pin the badge back on after picking it up from the ground where Jensen threw it. Written by Anonymous
