  • The DA and the cops realize that the suspect that they have been treating like crap is the eyewitness to a murder. Then, after some legal screw ups, the ex-suspect is the only one who can put the killer in jail.moreless

    A fine episode! My favorite episodes of the Law and Order series are the ones that don't use a touchy political issue as a major plot device, and this is one of the better such episodes.



    The plotting, writing, and most else of this episode are above the law and order standards, which I wouldn't call low.



    An interesting aspect of the episode is that it doesn't focus of the efforts of police and the DA as much as it focuses on Mike Bodack, a poor fellow who becomes the prime suspect then main witness in a carjacking-murder.



    I suppose the theme of this episode can be summed up with Schiff's observation at the end "It is nice to know that the entire legal system rises and falls with a Mike Bodack"moreless
