Quotes

Jack McCoy: He pleads to murder two. No special circumstances, no death penalty. Twenty to life, and he serves it in an Israeli prison.
Nathan Becker: He must be under the impression they're winning.
A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael: That's a pretty high-stakes gamble if we are.
Brad Feldman: Twenty to life isn't exactly a generous offer.
A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael: Considering this is a murder for hire, I think it's exceedingly generous.

Of all the bad L&O shows, this may be the worst
2 June 2010 | by (Lubbock, Texas) – See all my reviews

Jack McCoy hits a new low for prosecutors in this case, prosecuting a man for first-degree murder (which at the time could have meant the death penalty) because he skimmed off funds from his company and sent them to Israel, and killed a man who threatened to rat on him. This show was made before the 9/11 attacks, which showed exactly how vulnerable Israel (and the United States) are and how crucial it is to support the state. One would hope that Israel issued a warrant for McCoy for kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder among other things (he and the United States Government would ignore it, of course, but he should have that on his head). It is not stated, but I find it very likely that some Islamist prisoner in the pen quickly murdered the man for standing up for his country.
