  • Conti's past haunts him.

    Nice catch-22 in the episode. Conti uses the same techniques he's railed against to get the actual killer to confess.



    No one minds when the murderer gets the third degree and a confession extracted. The police are lauded. However when the same techniques work and produce a false confession we're up in arms or so this episode would have us believe.



    Not sure how accurate it was - is it true that children can be interrogated without a parent present or informed. I believe he asked for a lawyer and was pushed off. Though I think this varies state by state - on L&O this would be enough to get the confession tossed but then again that was the heart of this episode.



    Seeing David? Kyle in jail was great. I like drama shows that can introduce humor and still work.

    • Conti: We ran your name through Megan's List, Douglas...
      Megan's List is a listing of registered sex offenders, created after Megan's Law, named after seven-year-old Megan Kanka, a New Jersey girl who was raped and killed in 1994 by a twice-convicted sexual offender who had moved in across the street from the Kankas without their knowledge.

      On May 17, 1996, President Clinton signed the federal "Megan's Law," which required the release of relevant information to protect the public from sexually violent offenders.
