Mayor Manuel Delgado (as Carlos Gomez)
Angela Corbin
Judge Jane Briar
Kevontay Jackson ...
Reshaun Ferris


Julie Stark is charged with drunk driving. The mayor wants the team to investigate police detectives Ray Tillman (black veteran) and Kenny Leary (white rookie) who shot and wounded in the explosive poor neighborhood Angelino Heights drug dealer Reshaun Ferris and his close 17 year-old cousin, model student Thomas Broussard, who dies in hospital. A video confirms Ferris, who was already facing a third strike life sentence, opened fire, which makes him legally homicidal. Then journalist Angela Corbin airs a surveillance recording showing the cops manipulating the murder gun, sound analysis shows Reshaun didn't shoot at all -the first bang was a car muffler- and was arrested in vain thrice by Tillman. Shark charges the trigger-happy cops... Written by KGF Vissers
