All its pacifist tenets
9 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This story begins with Captain Craigen testifying before a police review board and getting reamed by the chief for his closure rate. Rather arbitrarily the chief picks out a cold case where 3 women are raped and all that links them is the DNA of the perpetrator. So with only that the squad goes to work on a case where they have 72 hours to close it before the statute of limitations runs out.

The women victims are Jenny Bacon, Judith Hawking, and Susan Kofoed and all are an interesting study in reaction to victimization. Kofoed is the most interesting, she's withdrawn into herself and post the crime has embraced Quakerism and all its pacifist tenets about forgiveness and non- violence. Which doesn't sit well with the other two victims as well it shouldn't.

I thought SVU went a bit overboard on this one. I cannot conceive of a believing Quaker not wanting the official criminal justice system to run its course. And Kofoed does know something the others don't and she won't reveal.

As for the doer when they catch him, it's quite a surprise. Basically hiding in plain sight due to a clerical error.
