Storyline

Bringing in a cocky criminal, Ben and Cooper pass a school bus which was robbed of the kids' field trip cash by two armed teenagers. Standing around is a wandering orphan, whose rambling about a 'magic cave', although waved away by the social worker, inspires their seemingly hopeless search, leading them to its grim content. Sammy peeks in a file to identify Nate's Latino murder suspect and kidnaps him, makes him dig a grave but walks away, only to find widow Moretta has sold Petey's home to move back to her parents in El Paso. A lush would-be actress, the sole witness in a murder after the rookie cop failed to mirandize the suspect, proves troublesome for her minders but also acts far too much. Written by KGF Vissers

It's Credibility ***1/2
25 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The theme of this episode is definitely credibility.

We see our officer steadfastly out for revenge as his partner was killed several episodes before. We observe that he is brought to the brink when he feels he has apprehended the killer. We see how he backs away ultimately from what he is going to do.

We observe the social service system when they show an uncaring social worker whose work load has made her like this.

Since everyone supposedly saw a man kill another man, a woman on the block takes it upon herself to say in court that she witnessed the killing. After doing this, she has lunch with Regina King and her partner and admits that she saw nothing. What a scene when King slaps the cuffs on her.

The L.A. environment with their gangs is well shown on this show. You don't know what you're in for.
