Storyline

While investigating the death of a homeless man, the police believe that someone struck him with a car and wouldn't help him. But when the defendant's lawyer asks for an autopsy which was not initially performed because the man's family wouldn't let them, they discover that the defendant hitting him with a car was not what caused his death but from being struck earlier. So the police investigate again and learn that the victim had earlier gotten into a fight with another homeless man over food. And his lawyer builds a defense around how hard life is for the homeless. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

One of the most touching episodes !
16 October 2012 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Law & Order season 14 episode 11 is perhaps on of the most touching episodes I've watched in all the series... Homeless people are actually not a mystery but a cancer grown in the society which everyone ignores even to realize there's such a thing. The last words of the episode "We're moving him from one jungle to another." is what describes best what we, people deal with the problems. We put them away, away from us. Is there a way to prevent this ? Perhaps there is ! But nobody even cares, and that's where everything goes wrong. The society ( whatever & wherever & whenever ) must learn how to share. That's what must be. It reminds me Gandi's reply to some reporter who asked him what he thinks about the Western Civilization : "It would be appreciated !"
