A city official is murdered in a botched mugging by a gang of three sophisticated criminals unaware of his high profile. The mayor, convinced it was a political assassination, orders Stone and Keller to crack the case.
Did You Know?
Stone and Keller are faced with a possible "political assassination" when they are called to city hall to investigate. They are seen gathering information in the actual mayor's office at city hall. The mayor's aide (the fictitious Mr. Skowlownowski) tells Stone: "I have had it with these political assassinations... if you don't like someone else's views, you get a gun and blow them apart". These are ironic words, because just 6 years later, in these actual same offices, the real mayor of San Francisco, George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, were killed by former Supervisor Dan White who shot each of them multiple times, in one of the most infamous political assassinations in American history.
