Five students aged 19 are found horribly murdered in a vacant house in Terra Mesa, New Mexico, unbound, skinned alive, one impaled alive: traditional Indian torture methods. The team quickly suspects it must be the collective work of a 'pack'. First they consider the local reservation policeman Benjamin Blackwood's son John, a teacher noted for Indian activism. His tracker skills on the murder site concludes it was not the work of real Indians, as no tribe practiced all these methods, he agrees to act as a consultant. As the killers were probably not Indian but wanted it to appear so, next suspects are the heavily armed ADU.

An episode based off pushing an agenda, not for entertainment or quality
18 February 2017 | by l-32423-39401See all my reviews

It's another anti-white episode from an anti-white show. "le ebil white man indians dindu nuffin."

This episode did not focus on quality, it was a show geared towards the manipulation of public perception. The story was terrible and unrealistic, especially the ending.
