Vigilante
AIRED:
Paul Julian, a radio repairman and ham operator, has patched in on the S.W.A.T. radio band, where he listens in on calls. This allows him to arrive at crime scenes ahead of S.W.A.T. and find concealed observation positions. Bent on avenging his wife's murderers, he kills two disarmed gunmen who have been talked into surrendering by Lt. Harrelson, and leaves S.W.A.T. facing intense media pressure and accusations that they are behind the senseless killings.moreless

  • Another Vigilante Theme Episode

    9.0
    A Man whose wife was murdered by criminals takes the Law into his own hands,as has been the case for some dramatic,and even comedy series.Though in all fairness,in some shows it is not a loved one that has become a victim of crime,rather it is the justice system that has turned many a characters into Vigilantes.Ordinary Citizens,and even Police Officers,and Judges have takens to do what they believe to fit crcks in the systems.Sadly,the cracks that they seek to fix,becomes bigger the more that they try to repair.Check out various dramas like "Starsky and Hutch",Walker Texas Ranger,The Equalizer,the original Hawaii 5-0,and even the cop comedy parady "Sledge Hammer".These are but afew shows that have had Vigilante Theme shows.I might not hold to Vigilantism,but it is understandable why characters like Paul Julian commits such acts.May nobody in real society copies Paul,and others actsmoreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (upon successful conclusion of an assignment)
      Luca: Well, Another day, another dollar.
      McCabe: You're all heart Luca.
      Luca: No, all stomach. Do you know what it costs to feed a growing Italian boy like me?

    • Luca: One crazy morning, huh, Lieutenant?
      Lt. Harrelson: You bet. While we go after the bad guy trying not to kill him, the real bad guy, who thinks he's a good guy, I guess, kills the bad guy.

    • Kay: But, there were three IDs on the car (fleeing the crime scene), descriptions we picked up.
      Street: Yeah, one black, one dark green and one light blue. The only thing the three eyewitnesses agree upon is that the car was about ten years old.
      Lt. Harrelson: Great. That narrows it down to about 100,000 black, dark green or light blue cars.
      Luca: Yeah, we're doing just dandy.

    • (entering Lt. Harrelson's office)
      Kay: Homicide's latest list of possible suspects.
      Lt. Harrelson: Anything?
      Kay: Nope.
      Lt. Harrelson: Every suspect in this town has got an alibi for those two snipings. Obviously, nobody did it.
