I only know what I see Joe and so far I've seen nothing

***SPOILERS*** Treasury case file #2474 has to do not with a crash out of a state prison but a crime committed in it by a number of inmates in the print shop involving the printing of counterfeit 20 dollar bills. This scheme was hatch by inmate Joe Navarri, Harry Landers, who planed to print up as many as 20 thousand dollars worth of the phony 20's and have them snuck out of prison to his ex-convict friends to use mostly at the race track and gambling casinos where they can easily be switched for the real currencies. The rub in Joe's plan is that the person in charge of the print shop inmate Ed Emery, Eduard Franz, who's up for parole, after 14 years behind bars, wants no part of Joe's plan and at the same time is needed for him to pull it off!

It's Ed's reluctance to go along with Joe that make him a target for retaliation in fearing he'll talk to the prison warden McClure, Robert Lynn, in order not to be implicated in Joe's printing and smuggling operation that would not only suspend his parole but extend his stay behind bars for at least another five years! Long enough for him to go psycho and end up in a mental ward not at home with his wife and two kids who by then would have long forgotten about him!

Ed needed not to worry in that the law did the job for him in getting Joe & Co. caught red headed in printing up and planning to distribute counterfeit money right of of state prison. In fact it was the sloppy work- in letting fake 20 dollars bills fall into the prison guards hands- on Joe's part that did him in more then the law did. As for Ed despite not going along with Joe's hair brained plan ended up getting 6 months time added on to his sentence, and then given parole, for not ratting him out to the authorities which was a small price for him to pay for what he was facing: A shiv stuck between his ribs if he did talk!
