Episode Summary

EDIT
Dungaree Justice (1)
AIRED:

Harm and Mac are assigned to prosecute three sailors charged with the vicious beating of a man they say raped a fellow shipmate. The rape victim, Petty Officer Lopez, tells Mac that, after an evening of drinking with her three male shipmates, she found herself alone at the bar where they ditched her as part of an initiation into their team. The next morning when she awakened in her car, she realized that she had been raped. When the shipmates heard Lopez's story, they exacted revenge on the man they thought attacked her -- the bar owner. But as Harm and Mac wear down the testimony of the three sailors, a very different story about what happened that evening begins to emerge. This episode starts with tying up the loose end of Mac being charged in an Article 32 hearing for perjury (People vs. Mac). She is acquitted, thanks to fancy legal-speak from Harm - although she does not have to face a court-martial, she does end being sent up on an Admiral's Mast, which just might be worse.

  • I throughly enjoyed this episode.

    A bar owner is severally beaten by three sailors who claim he raped their female shipmate. Meanwhile, Bud's brother feels he mad a mistake enlisting.



    When Seamen Hendrix mentioned that they took Petty Officer Lopez's keys, I figured it was Petty Officer Colbert that raped Lopez. Turns out that P.O. Colbert gave the keys to Seamen Olin for safety, and S. Olin was the one that raped P.O. Lopez.



    Honestly, I never knew that the Navy had artist going into combat zones to document the war efforts. I find that amazing, I would find it irresistible to have the opportunity to go Washington, D.C. and view the wonderful works of art.moreless
  • Interesting episode.

    In this episode a bartender is beaten up and it's up to the JAG team to find out why. Naval personnel have a bad rap with the civilians at many ports. Why? I'm sure they vent all their frustrations and hormones at whomever they can find when they hit land. Well, JAG finds out that the Naval guy that does the beating does so because of a lie. The ending is not as predictable as you think. Is he guilty? Are his buddies? Was the female raped? A classic tale of "Whodunnit?".moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Title: "Dungaree Justice" is a form of vigilantism taken by sailors against a particular segment of a community when they feel that justice hasn't been done on the behalf of one of their own by local authorities.

    • Bud: (referring to a painting) 'The Eternal Band of Brothers', painted in Korea by Colonel Charles Waterhouse.

      Bud got the painter right, but the painting is actually called "The Band of Brothers at Frozen Chosin".

    • The Navy Combat Art Program was founded in 1941 because of the determination, fortitude, willpower and diligence Griffith Baily Coale, a well-known muralist. Believing that war was just beyond the horizon Coale felt it to be significant to have proficient artist on site to document history in the making.
