AIRED:
When two children are shot by a 7-year-old boy, Mannion makes it his mission to find exactly how the boy got his hands on a gun. When Mannion questions the 7-year-old, he learns that the youngster took the gun from his 15-year-old brother who reveals that he got the gun from a "guy on the street" near his school. With the help of Temple and Debreno, Mannion sets up a sting and discovers that the weapon was actually a gun that the police had confiscated in a "buy-back" program. Now, with the Public Safety Commission breathing down Mannion's neck, he must track down the culprits before any more guns hit the street or any more children get hurt.moreless

  • Children and guns

    8.5
    The child bringing the gun to school and shooting the kids who had been bullying him was very scary. I could not believe that the older brother thought it was okay to have guns because they are “cool.” And the fact that the guns were so easily accessible to the children was bone-chilling. I felt bad for the parents, because they really did not do anything careless or irresponsible, yet they were blamed for the actions of their children.



    The curse thing was stupid. The woman was funny, but there was no point in actually having the curse be real.



    I really do not like Temple’s new attitude. I get that he’s still mourning his wife’s death. But he is so bitter!



    The race issue that Mannion brought up was a very good point. I think it’s terrible that the board did not call him in until a white child was shot.



    Mannion showing Remy the “law” that Congress passed that was really his VCR manual was classic!



    I was relieved AJ’s blood test turned out clean.moreless
