  • Episode has a real tearjerker ending.

    The lead detective showed the human side of police work. He had to encourage his partner to follow his lead. An old man in the apartment building feels sorry for the children living there because their parents can't afford to buy them presents for Christmas. He is determined the kids will have presents and makes them that promise. Well he doesn't have a job or extra money so he has a problem. He answers a help wanted ad and gets a seasonal job as a Santa Claus bell ringer. Turns out the Santas are part of a scam and get busted in the end.
