Jamie's patrol buddy 'Skiny' Vinny has been fatally shot in Los Lordes' neighborhood, but none of the terrorized Bitterman housing tenants dare testify. The mayor commandeers reluctant Frank to join him as key speaker on an event for that public, only to be shot himself. The easily arrested perpetrator, Hector Santiago, is a mentally handicapped 'adult' whom Vinny often babysat. Overzealous detectives question him black and blue, so Jamie reports them to Frank. Jamie talks to Hector, since he remembers Jamie. Jamie uses the radio to keep Hector calm during the interview; something Hector's family told him about, to learn how he was manipulated. That proves crucial for Danny's overzealous crusade to close in on the crafty street gang lord Santana, a master at intimidation and abuse, even on his loyally jailed girlfriend.
