Joyce Nankin, a 62 year old white female, is found murdered with a brick lying near her body in South Central. This sidetracks Squad Six-William-Nine (Sam and Brian) from tap dancing all over Brian's bigmouth snitch, Mike Vickery. Ken and his partner fret and fuss about the dirt "Charlie" has on them and arrange a meeting with a record producer. No one in primarily black South Central is talking to the cops; when "Bunchy," a mouthy member of Nation of Islam interjects himself, he gets arrested and ticks off a Vietnam vet. Delusional Charlie continues to use, abuse and apply the screws to further his music career, at any cost. Bruce makes assumptions about Sam and shoves his personal life in his face; but, Bruce is angry at the wrong people. Sam's son, Walter, returns from 'Nam, which worries Sam. Grace Karn conspires with Sam to expose Ken's lies and find Emma, but the truth is so much more than any of them could fathom.
