  • Officer Wilson Sweet(Geoffrey Thorne),while growing up, was told how his Grandfather, Louis Sweet, was murdered in Sparta by 3 negroes. But Wilson believes that there is more to the story.

    I think that this episode should go down in the history books as one of the greatest episodes in
    the series. It was well written, descriptive, and very suspenseful. Especially, how it depicted the way we, as African-Americans, were mistreated over stupied reasons years ago.
    Two Thumbs Way, Way Up. And you can quote me on that.
