"Blue Murder"
AIRDATE: 12.03.83


WHAT SAID:  

Pursuing the killers of criminals freed on technicalities is Hooker's unhappy task: the suspects are fellow officers.

SYNOPSIS:  

When Hooker and Romano are called to the scene of a murder, they ask to check out the room overlooking the alley where the murder took place. Through a friend in Vice, they get Claudia's address, the prostitute who was using the room at the time. Claudia confesses that two cops killed drug dealer Sweet Willie. An autopsy reveals that the same .22 caliber gun was used in the murder of two other hoods as well. Hooker believes it is the work of a vigilante group. Meanwhile, he and Romano receive orders to protect and transport Nick Sypes, a professional killer. When the call comes in to pick up Sypes, Hooker and Romano arrive at the location minutes after the vigilante cops. Sypes is killed in the exchange, but his bodyguard tells Hooker about the other cops who arrived just before him. Through a tip from Claudia, Hooker discovers information that leads him to Officers Roper and Kelly. He confronts their precinct captain, Frank Medavoy, with the evidence. Medavoy promises to get back to Hooker. When he calls Hooker later on, Hooker agrees to meet with him. When he sees Medavoy give a signal, he suspects a trap and pulls Medavoy in front of him and Medavoy takes Roper's bullet. After a brief battle, Hooker wounds and apprehends Roper and Kelly.
