Detectives Max Greevy and Mike Logan investigate the shooting of two young African-Americans on a crowded subway train. There are several witnesses to the shooting leading them to hospital technician Laura Di Biasi, a one-time dancer who had to give up her career as a dancer after a violent assault some years before. She doesn't deny the shooting but is claiming self-defense as she was afraid of being raped by the two men. The police conclude that she may have been out to deliberately avenge her earlier attack against anyone and Executive ADA Stone agrees to charge her with murder. He realizes however that should he lose the case, it will be sending New Yorkers a message that it's okay to shoot and ask questions later. Written by
