Two friends were taking a stroll in a chilly and snowy night. They noticed a guy on the sidewalk and they thought he felt asleep: he was actually strangled to death. The guy was a college student very active as an anti-war protester; forensics stated the killer must have skills that come from military training by the way the strangulation occurred. Detectives realized he was a chain-smoker and they questioned at first the owner of the neighborhood tobacco store. The same day the victim, who had a bad temper, had an argument with a mailman and with a policeman. Someone stashed his tyres and scratched his car door and later on he confronted a war veteran (Paul Calderon) at a local pub, located nearby the crime scene. It wasn't the first time the two had a fight: months earlier they argued at community board over the decision to name a road after the veteran's son, a soldier killed in action. At trial all becomes a matter of poor or rich backgrounds.

This episode show us how the public opinion is torn between who is pro and who is against war. Anyway in every war only poor guys face the battlefield.
