In defiance of a warning, a bootleg gang transports liquor and is stopped by the police. Through the intervention of a powerful politician who wants the votes controlled by the gang, Nick Scarsi, the leader, is freed. Later, Scarsi is caught murdering a patrolman. McQuigg, a police captain with a long-standing grudge against Scarsi, captures him and kills him when he tries to escape.
