  • The cop killer evades the justice. The 60's revived.

    I appreciate the Law and Order approach to cop killings and shooting at all: very rare are the episodes when a cop is shot or shoots, which underlines the actual statistics: some of the officers never shoot from their service gun during the whole line of duty. That is why this episode was special, and dramatic too, as soon as a cop is shot, everything is scrutinized by One Police Plaza and Lt. under constant pressure - but here the suspect happens to be a former Black Panther and with his arrest the old passions come back to life. It was a difficult trial, no one couldn't tell what kind of officer the victim really was, what actually happened in front of the door of the defendant's apartment, one moment I sympathized with the shooter, the Jack's final speech convinced me, nonetheless. And I expected the same from the jury: the guilty verdict, the bigger was then the surprise. An excellent episode, perfect acting, interesting plot and surprise at the end.
