Disappointed
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the first episodes in a long time I did not enjoy. Apparently, according to the storyline, you're allowed to stab people and get away with it - as long as you're an angry Muslim. This sends a message that is so wrong, it's mind boggling. Can you imagine if other groups in this country start adopting that policy? There are plenty of angry people that live here, of every conceivable background (including hate groups like the KKK and the Black Panthers). Should they be allowed to hurt others with impunity also, because they SUSPECT someone did something wrong??

The woman never apologized, never had charges filed against her - nothing. She simply got away with stabbing someone. I hope this series doesn't devolve into one of those pro terrorist, anti American "message shows" - that seems to be a trend right now.
