  • Bounty Hunters (bail officers) Misconduct

    10
    This episode was about bounty hunters hired by a bail bondsman who commit murder. There should be regulation to these kinds of people. They're like cops who act like they have all the authority, but none of the responsibilities of a law enforcement official. There was an episode of Homicide also about bounty hunters shooting and killing an unarmed civilian. (Pre-SVU Chris Meloni playing a bounty I am wondering, does anyone know which news story this was based on? They use to be listed in wikipedia, but most of them are gone. Can someone help here? Maybe someone who saw the news at the time?moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (after finding Millie Bender's dead body)
      Ron Difka: Always eatin' our dust, huh, Briscoe?
      (Briscoe punches him.)
      Lennie Briscoe: Don't even think about it!

    • (Carmichael interviews a suspected arms dealer regarding phony gun licenses.)
      Abbie Carmichael: They traced the gun licenses you arranged. A 72-year-old paraplegic. A blind grandmother in Queens.
      Lennie Briscoe: And my personal favorite, the guy who died three years before you sold him two .38s and a Magnum. He's the best-armed corpse in Greenpoint Cemetery.

    • Rey Curtis: Counting the nine millimeter, he's got 22 weapons registered. Most of 'em handguns, all on Federal permits.
      Lennie Briscoe: If Canada ever invades New York, this guy's ready for a fight.

    • Rey Curtis: (talking to a suspect) Crimes on airport property are covered by the Interstate Commerce Commission.
      Lennie Briscoe: That's the Feds, Johnny.
      Rey Curtis: Foreign cargo... You might even have to do time in the country of origin.
      Lennie Briscoe: Yeah. How's your Turkish, John?

    • Adam Schiff: Arrest the bounty hunters. If they don't know what kind of a case you've got, maybe one of them'll be dumb enough to take a deal.

    • Abbie Carmichael: So how'd the 9 mm get from Barak to Max Sheridan?
      Rey Curtis: Maybe he sold it.
      Lennie Briscoe: Maybe he lost it.
      Abbie Carmichael: Maybe you ask him.

    • Lennie Briscoe: (Looking around the bail bondsman's office.) You know, I once had an idea about putting my money into a place like this.
      Rey Curtis: So you can have a financial interest in keeping the crime rate up? That makes sense for a cop.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Judge Antonia Mellon: Under the statute you have five days left to indict. If you haven't done so by then, Mr. Sheridan will be on the midnight train to Georgia.
      This is an allusion to the 1974 Grammy Award-winning song by Gladys Knight & the Pips, "Midnight Train to Georgia".

    • Terry Barrick: The only Max I ever knew was Schmeling.
      Max Schmeling was a boxer from Germany who was unfairly tarred as a Nazi when his 1937 win against the previously-undefeated American boxer Joe Louis was hailed by the Nazi regime as supposed proof of Germans' superiority over other races. By the time Louis got a chance at a rematch in 1938, tensions between the United States and Nazi Germany had grown so bad that American promoters cast the rematch as a symbolic battle between American ideals and Nazi brutality. Schmeling lost the rematch, and for some time afterwards was ridiculed (Terry Barrick would probably not have been the first person to call Schmeling a "Kraut pantywaist").
