People who incite
10 April 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This is but one of many shows dealing with when and where advocacy spills over into action in the Law And Order franchise. All of them usually involve the internet in one way or another. Our law and judicial opinions still haven't caught up. And the District Attorney of New York County is forever trying to convince juries to hold responsible people who incite.

Case in point is Erin Gann who runs an environmental website. The case that Sam Waterston brings in this episode is to convict him of inciting the destruction of various properties he says is damaging the environment. In this story a new apartment project in Manhattan that had not yet been opened. A young woman who had used the unfinished building as a trysting place is burned to death.

Dianne Weist puts it so well with "we're we all that stupid when we're 20". The four young people Andrea Anders, Evan Neumann, and John Sutherland who do the actual deed and Jeff Edgerton who is a kind of middle man are all these fresh faced idealistic kids. Like Bernie Sanders supporters now.

There is something truly loathsome about Gann who exhorts this stuff, but stays far enough away to not get burned (pun intended).

The New York County DA wins some and loses some in these kinds of cases. Tune in to find out.
