Beyond the power of temporal justice
31 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Terrence Howard crosses over from the LA Law&Order series and across the aisle so to speak to defend his cousin accused of rape. The victim is Virginia Kull who looks to be a sweet young woman who teaches in minority areas and even is living in Washington Heights.

After one false start with a neighbor who has gone off his meds the squad zeroes in on Vondie Curtis Hall who has some really fascinating history with the family of this victim.

Turns out the man who would have to answer in celestial court is Kull's grandfather Robert Hogan. The statute of limitations puts Hogan way beyond the power of temporal justice. More I really can't say about this episode.

Marc Antony put it best the evil can live on and on and it will after Hogan is no longer among the living.
