Quotes

D.A. Nora Lewin: If the case depends on the jury believing a career criminal who's cut a deal, I'd say we're in trouble.
Jack McCoy: We have a defendant who left the country rather than stand trial.
D.A. Nora Lewin: Which the defense will attribute to a combination of panic and religious fervor.
A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael: Well, we could also establish that he was stealing from the business.
D.A. Nora Lewin: A business his father half owned.
Jack McCoy: Are you suggesting that we offer him a deal?
D.A. Nora Lewin: After what we went through to get him back here? Not on your life.

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.
