Comes with the territory

Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

The law is something that gets in the way here as Jack McCoy decides he's going after rightwing merchant hate peddler Michael Cumpsty. In his position I might have done the same thing.

A young teenage girl, one whom we find out is incredibly naive and just wants to fit in is found clubbed and stoned to death and left hanging like Mathew Shepard on a tree in Central Park. It turns out she fell in with a group of white racist skinheads who think she might spill some club secrets. And it is poetic that she be left like Mathew Shepard since during the course of show, a gay bashing is described.

The real doer here is a hate filled kid played by Paul Dawson and he's positively unnerving in his hate for all that is different from him. But there's a zealot played by Cumpsty who has a farm where Dawson and his crowd come and hear how they have to kick some gluteus maximus for the white race.

As leader of the skinheads Dawson's guilt is unquestioned, but Cumpsty's speech revolting as it is, can it be translated into a call for action, especially against one particular victim?

When you say you have a society that relishes free speech, problems like these come with the territory.
