Stupid with the right stuff
5 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode points out a weakness inherent in Law And Order because it is based in New York City. Although the death penalty was reinstated under George Pataki for various reasons no one to this day has gotten the lethal injection in New York State. It doesn't help with the veracity with an episode like this. Not like a few of the defendants on Law And Order wouldn't deserve it. Including serial killer Ritchie Coaster.

This is one scary dude. In fact his original attorney Susan Floyd begs off the case this guy scares her so much. She's a seasoned criminal attorney and that should say something. I wonder what Hannibal Lecter's lawyers must have thought?

In walks Alexander Chaplin, young idealistic Legal Aid attorney who does one colossally stupid thing in dealing with Coaster and it puts him in a jackpot similar to the one Al Pacino was in in And Justice For All. It has to do with attorney client privilege.

Actually Sam Waterston is the one who should be censored by the Bar Association but he covers his tracks well.

For his mistake Chaplin becomes the most hated man in New York and liable to blow his whole career. In the end though you have to respect him for his courage if not his smarts.
