Detectives Joe Fontana and Nick Falco investigate when a commuter train strikes an SUV parked on the tracks. A dozen people are killed but it's not clear which of the dead or injured might have put the car there. It leads them to Davey Buckley who admits that he tried to commit suicide that day. In court his lawyer, Rodney Fallon, tries to present an insanity defense but mid-way through the trial, Buckley fires him and changes his plea to not guilty. Written by garykmcd

I don't make social policy.

Any episode of Law & Order is worth watching, but some are way above others.

With the exception of Sam Waterson, this is the worst cast of the series: Dennis Farina, Michael Imperioli, and Annie Parisse are all the least of the characters in their respective roles.

The case was interesting in that a man tried to commit suicide and 12 people ended up dead instead. His lawyer, capably played by Giancarlo Esposito, tried to indict the social services not provided by the State for his client's condition.

It turns out, however, that he was just an alcoholic loser.
