To Kill a Cop (1978) TV Movie

Joe Don Baker stars as chief of detectives, Eischeid, in the 4-hour, 2-part TV film "To Kill A Cop". Eischeid must contend with a series of seemingly unrelated bank robberies and the vicious murders of two police officers. Eischeid deduces that the culprits are members of a violent African-American revolutionary movement, but he is blocked in his investigation by the politically ambitious chief of police. As time runs out, Eischeid must prevent the planned wholesale slaughter of civilians at the hands of the revolutionaries. Scripted by Ernest Tidyman (The French Connection), "To Kill a Cop" served as the pilot for the TV series "Eischeid", which ran from September 1979 to January 1980. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
