True remorse
6 October 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

While searching the crime scene of an arson fire Detectives Dennis Farina and Michael Imperioli discover a handgun that has a body on it. It's the weapon of a nine year old homicide of a man who was at that time going out with one of the tenants of the building. It was a mixed racial couple with the victim being black.

A very short investigation reveals Jim True-Frost as the perpetrator and he quite willingly owns up to the crime. In the intervening ten years however he's gotten religion and apparently walks the walk as well. The pastor of his church happens to be black and back in the day what True-Frost objected to was his sister going out with a black man. He's gotten over whatever racism he had at the time of the murder.

This theme about repentance was done already a decade earlier on Law And Order where a punk rocker killed an undercover cop and she received Jesus while awaiting the sentencing portion of her trial. True-Frost walks into this one a true believer and his attorney tries to get charges dismissed on that basis.

It's a well acted story, but the most zealous defense attorney couldn't possibly believe that one would work
