Captain Canelli passes on the word to the shift as the change is made, and marched out. Among the things to watch for is a juvenile delinquent who is on a crime spree of robbery. His parents come in to ask the cops for help in getting their son off the street. Maybe what he needs is a good role model? Is Canelli the man for that job?
The parents and neighbors weigh in on the trouble making son. Is he on a fast track to becoming a worthless bum, or is he a good kid at heart?
Paul, the youth in question, is brought in for a heart to heart talk from Captain Canelli. The teenager talks a good talk, and seems to be turning over a new leaf. Has he convinced Canelli of his sterling character? It doesn’t take long for Paul to get involved with his gang, and return to stealing. How many second chances will Paul get? Not any more from the cops who he had fooled.
