Episode Summary

EDIT
The Brotherhood
AIRED:
When a prison gang puts out a contract on a Sing Sing corrections officer and his family, assigning the job to a newly released ex-con, the terrified officer pleads preemptive self-defense after he's brought to trial for the parolee's murder. As the trial proceeds, the gang attempts to affect the outcome of the case by sending a death threat to the presiding judge, who refuses to be intimidated. Shortly after the conclusion of the trial, McCoy discovers that the defendant's fears about the power and the reach of the gang were well-placed.moreless

  • The correctional officer tried for having killed a paroled gang member. An episode with a frightening ending.

    10
    How far can the organized crime go and is the prison enough to protect the world outside? The highlight of this episode lies mostly in the order part. We can watch a correctional officer who chooses to shoot a paroled felon, member of the Brotherhood gang in order to protect his family. Although you can doubt whether his motive was fear or rather a revenge since he wasn't being on the best terms with inmate during his time in prison, there are moments when you understand the fear the officer could have. I couldn't help myself shivering when I saw the gang boss, in prison and mostly at the courthouse - his testimony persuaded at least some of the jurors the risk had been imminent and it saved the CO his life. For, the only thing better than a dead CO is the CO on the side of the bars.moreless
