Plot details follow.
In this episode, a person is molesting chickens in town. When Officer Barbrady starts the investigation, he is confronted with his inability to read. He resigns in shame and anarchy immediately breaks out. Barbrady is put into the boys' class to learn to read. Meanwhile, the "Chickenlover" (as he is euphemistically called, as the adults do not think it would be socially appropriate to call the attacker "Chickenfucker") strikes again.
Officer Barbrady's book report on Go, Dog, Go! gives him an A and he starts to enjoy the school life a little too much. Mayor McDaniels forces him to learn reading more quickly to solve the case. He promotes the four boys to deputies to help him in his task. From then on, Cartman patrols the town on his bigwheel, enforcing his own brand of justice and dealing violently with those who fail to respect his "authoritah." Cartman also does a lot of pulling people over and uses the line "Sir could you step out of the car...Sir step out of the car...damnit I am a cop and you will respect my Authoritah!" he then precedes to hit the person in the shin with a night stick. Meanwhile, Barbrady put some clues together by reading some children's books. When he almost gives up, the boys keep up his spirits.
The molester is finally caught in the petting zoo, who turns out to be the Book Mobile driver (who actually started molesting chickens before Barbrady admitted that he couldn't read). He plotted this all along to encourage Barbrady to learn to read. He gives Barbrady a copy of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which convinces Barbrady that reading "totally sucks ass." Barbrady then kills the molester by hitting him in the head with a nightstick. In the end, he swears never to read again.
