During World War II, crooked officials in a small town mistakenly imprison an innocent woman on charges of treason. That action indirectly leads to the death of another woman. The dead woman's brother, furious at the city for causing his sister's unnecessary death, sets out to "teach everybody a lesson" and foolishly tampers with the city's water supply. Rumor, innuendo and panic spread across the town, eventually leading to more phony arrests, riots and vigilantism. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

A good, solid story

I am amazingly surprised by this episode which I would have perfectly seen from a Martin Ritt's film, I don't know why. A drama, not a crime story, with a social background too. It takes place in a small American town during WW2, when unscrupulous bureaucrats mistakenly send an innocent woman in jail, and provoking another person's death. The brother of the victim intends to take revenge by poisoning the town water supply. so, as you can guess, the panic begins spreading all over the city...

Exciting and also tremendously played by convincing actors. I guess one of the best episodes of the whole show, at least the ones I have seen.
