Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the death of a Nigerian woman, Kelani Amoda, who died soon after her arrival in New York City. She was a drug mule and had ingested packets of heroin but one obviously burst killing her and her unborn child. Her husband was already in New York and she had arranged a job with a Nigerian oil company's US offices. Her visa was sponsored by her tribal chief Ola-Gimja Nwaka who also holds diplomatic status in the United States. ADA Stone has every intention prosecuting Nwaka and receives some cooperation from the Nigerian Embassy's lawyer, Sir Idris Balewa. Stone's case is shaky however but Sir Idris has a solution for that. Written by garykmcd

Different Cultures
26 May 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a good episode, which made an important point about the world we live in, and how cultures in our world are vastly different. A drug smuggling ring in NYC is uncovered, and it appears that a very prominent member of the Nigerian community is running it. He is both a diplomat and a chief in a tribe in his homeland, and of course has many character witnesses praise him as a man of tremendous integrity. The investigation is interesting, as is the result in court, which I will not spoil. Most interesting for me, however, is a point made about the cultural differences between the USA and Nigeria. A man suspected of smuggling drugs insists he is innocent, and it looks as though may go free. However, all the prosecutors have to do is suggest he might be extradited to Nigeria to face justice there, and he suddenly cooperates with the District Attorneys and is desperate to do whatever they want. This shows the extreme differences between the two cultures, and, not to offend anyone from Nigeria, but how lucky we are in the free world to have a high standard of living and basic human rights. This episode made me think.
