Give us your tired, your poor, your terrorists
19 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two policemen were out patrolling when an explosion took place in a building, broken all windows in the first floor. A casualty occurred, the tenant who lived in the apartment. He was from Middle Eastern descent and he worked at a local garage at minimum wage. Detectives were stunned when they figured out his bank account is well above his means: 89.000 $. Furthermore, he faked his ID and he came from Yemen. Some people living in the Big Apple holding a grudge against these Arab people and a former army officer (a decorated one, having received a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his duty in Iraqi "Desert Storm") set up a team for tracing down potential terrorists or "sleepers" (a reporter and a translator in a wheelchair were the other members). Who are the real terrorists?

A matter pretty heartfelt at the time of the shooting, shortly after 9/11 attacks. Anyway what happened doesn't mean authority had the right to overcome people's privacy and citizens can't take on the role of judge, jury and executioner, as stated by McCoy at the trial.
