Deadline: Daniel in the Lion's Den

When a community activist who is running for city council turns out to be a fugitive living under an assumed name after being convicted of throwing a rock at police during a student protest 30 years earlier, Benton and Nikki suspect that the man was actually framed by the infamous "Red Squad", some of whose members are still around.
