It was actually very powerful
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This episode was incredibly complicated. It started with one crime, followed the threads to another, and then onto something even bigger. The first crime was a terrible shooting of some school students. It appeared to have been a racially motivated crime. While interviewing students and searching for suspects, the detectives stumble across a sexually abused student. This young girl was awesomely acted, although I found her scenes incredibly disturbing. And then there was a very powerful scene afterwards involving her abuser. It just made me so sad.

Anyway, links are discovered to a particularly nasty white supremacy organisation, which even seems to have its own special youth division headed by the sons of one of the leaders. Marcia Gay Harden has a great guest-starring role as one very scary character. The whole concept of nasty racist organisations is explored and it's absolutely terrifying. We are then treated to a dramatic stand-off which I have to say I actually quite enjoyed. This was a very slick, well-written and well-paced episode.
