  • The accused uses the defense of black rage.

    9.0
    When the police accuse a wall street broker of murder he uses the black rage defense but Jack and Claire fear if he isn't found guilty it means people could use the black rage defense to get away with murder and in the end it was only right that he was found guilty because like Jack said he is a thief hiding behind his race Whatever the decision it was going to cause arguments and people will complain.moreless

    • Jack McCoy: You don't scare me, Mr. Greer. But you do disgust me. You're nothing but a thief and a murderer --hiding behind your race.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The parts of this episode dealing with the "black rage" defense appear to be "ripped from the headlines" of the Colin Ferguson case; Ferguson used the affirmative defense as mitigation in the Long Island Railroad shootings of December 7, 1993 that resulted in the deaths of six people and wounding of nineteen others. During the course of the trial, Ferguson fired his counsel and undertook a pro se defense. Upon the jury's rejection of the "black rage" assertion, Ferguson was sentenced to 315 years, 8 months on combined multiple counts of murder and attempted murder.

    • Mike Logan: The guy makes more money than God, but he lives worse than I do.
      Anita Van Buren: Howard Hughes never clipped his toenails. Got any homicides we can pin on him?

      Millionaire industrialist Howard Hughes was known for acting eccentric, especially towards the end of his life. He let his toenails, fingernails and hair get very long and he became reclusive and paranoid about germs. Some people think he had obsessive-compulsive disorder.
