Entirely too conveniently coincidental. Matt Dillon didn't have to save the same woman that he molested, the young white cop would never have offered the black hoodlum hitchhiker a ride (no matter how young and idealistic the young white cop was) and sadly, the reality of the storekeeper shoooting the locksmith would have been that the gun was not loaded with blanks. In the real world, the little girl would have died, but everybody got a second chance in this movie, everybody had the opportunity for redemption. With such a self-serving storyline, it's impossible to call this a good movie, despite the quality of the individual performances and the relevance of the racial message.
