Abstract:
Police captain Jim Fitzpatrick is shipped out to the suburbs by crime boss Sam Belmonte. Now rid of the do-gooder, Belmonte's stranglehold on the city tightens and crime is on the rise. Not to be thwarted, Fitzpatrick sets out to clean up the streets as well as the corruption within the department. When his brother Ed takes up with the gangster's moll, Fitzpatrick finds the war against crime hitting too close to home. Convinced that the legal system does not work, Fitzpatrick takes matters into his own hands.
