  • Law and Order Special Victims Unit!

    When six year old Carly Jackson is shot and murdered on the playground of her school, the shooter is brought into the Special Victims Unit for questioning. The shooter, Elias, was a schoolmate of Carly's, who is only seven years old himself. The detectives are at a loss as to what the motive could have been. Through their investigation, the learn that Elias was not plotting to murder Carly, but was a victim of circumstance. He had witnessed the murder of a teenage boy nicknamed Shorty. Elias then took the gun in order to protect himself.

    This was a good episode of the series. It is sad to see what children will do to one another when they are subject to viloence every day. One act of violence is enough to fuel another one.
