Storyline

The Korean mob (led by Philip Ahn in his last role) tries to put muscle on Koreatown by extortion and murder. An immigrant organizes a neighborhood association to fight them, so the gang targets the honest man's cute 8-year-old niece for kidnapping, with the price for her safe return being that he remain silent. They then arrange for her to be "adopted" and sent back to Korea by a native family they've hired, using their Washington connections to threaten the man with arrest for violating immigration laws if he, Pepper or a friendly journalist interfere. The title comes from a Jimmy Carter speech denouncing the South Korean regime (at the time) for violating the rights of its citizens. Plays very much like a "Lou Grant" episode until the final 10 minutes. This was the only major role for young actress Shang-Hur. Written by Peter Harris

Best of the fourth-season episodes; should have been the finale
12 March 2007 | by (Lubbock, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is the best of the late episodes and maybe of the entire series. The interplay between Angie Dickinson and the young actress playing Tiki Kim (who was close in age to Dickinson's own daughter) is really delightful. Although many might see the ending as a cop-out compared to "Lou Grant" (which would have stopped at a scene where the girl is taken away to Korea), it is hugely satisfying for '70s viewers. Curiously, when the entire series was rerun on ABC Late Night immediately after it concluded its NBC run, the episodes were shown in order of production and this one aired after "Good Old Uncle Ben," the final telecast. It would have been an immensely better series finale than that show, which I have reviewed elsewhere.
