A gentle reminder from Sergeant Joe Friday & his shift partner Officer Bill Gannon of the Los Angeles Police Department as they head out in an unmarked squad car II deal with a situation wherein a mother got her two kidnapped daughters back after they had been sexually molested & beaten. Sgt. Friday is happy he got the kids back, but has to calmly yet firmly tell the mother that the molester got free & over California state lines, thus making it more difficult to arrest him due to jurisdictional matters. So he has to build up her hopes in her kids & her hopefulness for a better future after their nightmare, & yet he also act to act humble & sad that their abuser is still out wandering the streets.
"No ma'am I'm afraid there's more to it than that. The man that did it is still free."
