When Tony Alika's guns shoot out a tire on a police car, resulting in the death of a cop and the near-death of Duke, the whole crime is captured on film by a free-lance photographer (a "stringer" in the trade), who goes to Alika and tries to blackmail him and a mainland hood. One of several stories by Paul Williams as guest-star vehicles for himself; this one was apparently taken by writer Robert Janes to revive his popular story line about the Hawaiian kumu mob.
