A very worth episode

I decided to comment this very interesting story of this rather usual and predictable TV show...

I will reveal the whole story, so BEWARE THE SPOILERS. You are warned.

Our leads, the SFPD detectives, get the visit of a man who tells them that his son is a criminal. The cops begin the investigation and finish by catching the son in question, a petty hood who dies in a gun accident during his arrest. No the cops fault. And afterwards, or before, it appears that the man who came to the police officers is not the actual father of the deceased, but only the victim's father's best friend. A man who died years earlier after being executed for murder. And this man asked his best friend - the mysterious cops visitor - to take care of the young boy, and so consider him as his real son...

And just before the end of the episode, the poor man confesses that his friend was executed for a crime he - the visitor - actually committed.

I consider this story very poignant and could have been made for a very good classic movie, not just a TV show.
