Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the shooting death of Dr. Eleen Reed who worked at a family planning clinic and had been targeted by anti-abortion groups. She had received many threats and there is a permanent group of protesters outside the clinic where she worked. The investigation leads them to Drew Seely, a defrocked minister who is clearly seeking a podium for his anti-abortion views. Seely ordered the hit but both he and the actual shooter refuse any deal ADA McCoy may put on the table. In the end, McCoy outwits him when on the stand. Written by garykmcd

Judge's comment on bail
31 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm watching this episode this morning on TNT for the (I don't know how many)time(s). When the defendant was in court regarding a plea and bail as usual the ADA called remand and the defense lawyer said he should be free on his own recognizance. I'm not sure exactly what the judge said because I wasn't recording it but what I heard was that on behalf of all the unborn future doctors and lawyers she agreed to remand. I'm not sure how this makes sense to her; the Judge. I'm somewhat ambivalent on the abortion political issue but it seems to me that the doctor was "killing" possible future doctors and lawyers. One of my sons can probably get it on Netflix or somewhere for me to see/hear again.
