Briscoe and Green investigate a shooting rampage in Central Park where all 15 of the victims were female college students. Using the serial number of the gun they've recovered they trace the owner, Dennis Trope, but when the judge dismisses most of their evidence, Jack McCoy has few options open to him. When he learns that the gun could be turned into an automatic weapon using an inexpensive kit you can buy at any gun show, he decides to go after the manufacturer. Despite evidence that the gun manufacturer knew that most of their sales were because of the ease of conversion, it's obvious McCoy is going to have a hard time getting a conviction.

Det. Green first show. Learn of his two excessive force comp.

I like Green and Brisco together. It was a good episode. I really enjoy the show. My wife and I never miss it. You can see the two Det's feeling each other's patterns and how they work. Lenny the old school cop who has seen it all. Green who's father had a good living and you can tell by the way Green dresses and carries himself. Atlantic City poker trip overnight. Hey they are still people. Its to bad about Orbach. He was a fine actor, and not just in L and O. In all of his films. Fontana took some getting used to but he has grown on me. One thing I really did like is when Green is interrogating the suspect and getting him to show his displeasure so to say with the opposite sex. It was clever directing and it really showed his different range of character. Lets face it he almost beat him on the street when he caught him and Lenny had to calm him down. I wish you just knew more of their pasts. I think it would help us get to know them better.
