Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the murder of Eva Harrison who appears to have been shot on the street in an attempted purse snatching. Eyewitnesses say it was a Hispanic kid on a silver mountain bike but can't agree on much else about him. The investigation leads them to Bobby Sabo, who has a long history of purse snatching. The detectives are under a lot of pressure to solve this case and Lennie in particular want to get evidence against Sabo. When they arrest him, Sabo tells Lennie the woman got what she deserved but no one else heard the confession. After crucial evidence is thrown out, Lennie begins to overreact when his credibility is called into question. Written by

Det. Lennie Briscoe
You mean how you only killed him because he wouldn't give you his watch? Yeah, put that in there, the D.A. would really like that.
