  • Illegal immigrants and the Citizens for Border-Control.

    2.8
    Citizens for Border Control.....these people really do exist. They have licensed firearms and their motivational speech is that they are taking up the slack of the police and INS.



    But, in my opinion, their real motivation is racism.



    The episode was all over the place....the CBC guy rigged the driver's truck to kill a bunch of immigrants and make his life and work easier and safer....no wait..... it was his buddy who acutally did it.



    I'm tired of these dumb and baseless L & O episodes that they have been ditching out lately.

    • Nathaniel Prentiss: You're not terrified to see more buildings fall? More planes crash? I am. Terry is. He's gonna see it stops.
      Alex Borgia: By murdering innocent illegals?
      Nathaniel Prentiss: You know they were innocent? I don't... and for my money, they shouldn't have been on that truck in the first place.

    • Jack McCoy: Dorn didn't want Clayton Stack killed to prevent illegal immigration but to keep himself out of jail.

    • Ken: I knew something was going down with his hauls.
      Ed Green: Who maintains the rigs?
      Ken: I do.
      Ed Green: So when you were cleaning out blood, hair, loose fingernails from people who tried to claw their way out of a boiling hot trailer box, you classify that as "something going down"?

    • CSU Tech Lowden: I think at some point this trailer overheated, and the people inside, the cargo, were literally cooked.

    • Terry Dorn: (While getting arrested.) What kind of country locks up its patriots?
      Ed Green: The same kind that gives you the right to remain silent. Exercise it.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The title of the episode, "New York Minute", is also a well known song by Don Henley of The Eagles. The song was on Henley's solo CD The End of the Innocence (1989) and also was on the Eagles reunion CD Hell Freezes Over (1994). In slang terms, when something is referred to as taking place in 'a New York minute', it refers to the rapid pace at which things take place in New York City.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Tyrone Williams case.
