Storyline

Detectives Joe Fontana and Ed Green investigate the shooting of the owner of a neighborhood restaurant, Oscar Morales. It turns out the shooter is 14 year-old Jeremy Miller whose sister Emily died a few days before from AIDS. His intended victim was really the administrator of the hospital where Emily died, Dr. Elaine Clemens, who was wounded in the restaurant attack. Jeremy blamed the hospital for killing his sister and just as the police try to get the contrite young man to give himself up he commits suicide. They learn that Emily's foster mother had visited her just before she died but the autopsy reveals she was being administered drugs outside of her treatment protocol, including an experimental AIDS drug that was supposed to be used only on animals. They arrest Andrew Copeland, Emily's doctor, and determine that other foster children have died in a similar way. Written by garykmcd

Some sad lives
22 December 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jesse Martin and Dennis Farina investigate a shooting at a diner where the owner is killed and a patron slightly wounded. As it turns out the patron is the intended target.

That shooting leads them to a hospital which specializes in pediatric care of juvenile AIDS sufferers. Most particularly those who might have been born with the disease.

The motive for the shooting has to do with the death of a young girl who apparently never had a chance and her older brother who was seeking revenge on the hospital staff. One doctor Vondie Curtis Hall has been conducting unauthorized and almost ghoulish experiments on those patients of which he has an unlimited supply because for the most part these kids have been abandoned. It's he who the DA's office goes after and it's not an easy task since Hall is respected in the field.

Pay attention to Eugene Jones, III the actual shooter at the diner and his performance. He's got one scene, but it really registers as someone who truly believes he's got nothing to live for.
