Dear Gordon:

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."

A Difficult Balance To Be Sure Sarge,

  1. I was under the impression that crossing state lines to evade justice was rather a thing of the past. Not so however. USA Today did a series on this very thing earlier this year: Mostly it has do with jurisdictions being unwilling to go to the trouble and expense of extraditing. Los Angeles County lists 38 per cent of its fugitives as non-extraditable. Dr. Richard Kimble being pursued all the country by Lt. Philip Gerard was obviously something that doesn't happen often.
