  • Another fine example of this show, but most episodes are.

    9.5
    I was recently watching this episode and I really liked it. One of the things I think I liked most was that Van Buren was out there with them when they arrested the kid and Morales. I loved seeing her in action. Once again Law and Order dealt with a problem we really don't even want to think about, but I'm sure it's happeneing all the time. In the end the we find out the mother owed the drug dealer $800 and sells her son to him. This is one of the disgusting facts of drugs. I also liked the way we saw Curtis a little torn about the father hitting his kid (Clayton). As a father he understood the man was trying to protect his son, but as a cop he should have stopped him. Once again an above average episode and one of the reasons this show has been on as long as it has and really shows no sign of coming to an end.moreless
  • A woman is found shot in her bed, but when the detectives find the suspect, he too is a victim.

    A ripped from the headlines storyline that Law & Order is famous for. Although the crime that starts the show is a woman who's been shot while sleeping, the real crime is the child neglect of Lonnie Rickman, who has been basically been traded for drugs by his mother. It is a very disturbing episode. People tried to help, like his friends mother feeds him, but he stands up for the mother who has sold him to a drug dealer. At the end, in the courtroom you know Lonnie is looking for his mother to show up and she never does. Heartbreaking.moreless
