The Streets of San Francisco - Season 1 - Episode 23

after spending ""a lousy"" 12 years in prison for a rape / torture / murder, a young punk returns to san francisco to seek revenge against mike stone who was the arresting officer. for starters, the guy murders a girlfriend of mike stone's daughter..... so the killer is REALLY a sicko. the episode spends quite a lot of time on the supposed legal manuvers of the suspect to harrass without going over the line and getting arrested. its okay for hollywood, but the techniques used were fairly shallow and not really something that could be used and especially today. all ends well, though, and mike's daughter says 'bye daddy' as she rolls out on her busride back to her college in AZ.
