Storyline

Sam leaps into William "Willie" Walters Jr. who along with his brothers Neil and John are in the process of robbing a bank. It seems that the bank has foreclosed on the family farm and the Walters boys are robbing the bank in order to get the money to pay them back. History records that the brothers are killed trying to escape and Al thinks Sam is there to get them to try and surrender. Sam is also in his home town and knows many of the people involved. Sam suspects that the local banker, Gus Vernon, is repossessing farms to sell the land for commercial development. He gets the evidence they need but not before one of the brothers is shot.

Quotes

Gus Vernon: What the hell's going on, Clyde? One minute I'm doing business, the next I hear my bank's being robbed.
Sheriff Mundy: Well, first of all, your bank isn't being robbed, it's being occupied. Secondly, it isn't your bank. It belongs to the town.
Gus Vernon: I didn't drive 30 miles to get a lesson in semantics.
