Ferdinand Rieche was a policeman, but found the legal constraints of that profession too stifling. He gets into the business of protecting manufacturing plants and outfits and trains his men like a private army expecting an invasion. After his excesses prove too much for his bosses, he is fired, and Ferdinand takes his strong opinions back into public life.
