Thought-provoking installment, hearkening to September 11
13 June 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

"Hate" is a powerful episode that explores the origins of racial hatred and how far some will go to fulfill their own personal "agenda" against a perceived enemy.

In the story, guest star Renaldo Rosales portrays a young man accused of killing three individuals of Arab descent solely because he feels that they are out to kill Americans, basing his prejudices, so it seems, on the attacks of September 11. It is later revealed that his contempt and hatred stems from something more personal that occurred in his life, an event that contradicts the defense that his lawyer (played by recurring guest Barry Bostwick) has developed.

As often happens in an SVU episode, Munch (Richard Belzer) and Finn (Ice-T) get to be a sort of "Greek chorus", chiming in with their respective opinions that allow the writers to "vent" politically.
