Blood Diamonds
15 September 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Five years before Leonardo DiCaprio's extraordinary film Blood Diamond came out, the subject of blood diamonds came up in this Law And Order episode involving a triple homicide. One quite deliberate, a second an innocent bystander, and a third thought to be an innocent bystander but who wasn't.

Viewers now that Law And Order is in syndication if they've Blood Diamond can appreciate far more the complexities of the problem. Even in the movie a lot is simply labeled T.I.A., This Is Africa.

But this is Manhattan and the trail that Jesse Martin and Jerry Orbach follow leads them to Lance Reddick working in an autobody shop, but also a captain in the rebel army of Sierra Leone. He murders the two men, a banker and a diamond dealer to obtain a cache of diamonds that can help finance revolutionary activities.

What he doesn't know is that he got misled and was indirectly working for an international diamond cartel and Michael Hayden who has the international market almost monopolized. It's Hayden who goes to trial.

It's a good episode, but seeing the DiCaprio film is a lot better.
