Marvin Exley:What Ledger would love nothing more than to have a test case involving First Amendment and NYPD. Please, go ahead. Try us.
Captain Donald Cragen:You three are playing this while there's a missing kid out there?
Bureau Chief Michael Cutter:Yeah, let's cut to the chase, Mr. Exley.
Marvin Exley:Okay. Griscomb gives you everything he has on the missing boy's phone records, he gets full immunity from prosecution.
Bureau Chief Michael Cutter:No, this is how it works: wiretapping is federal. It's out of our hands. He give us something we can is use, we'll mis-D the felony eavesdropping. Take a minute to think about it. And by a minute, I mean fifty-nine seconds.

Only the gypsies know, 8 December 2013
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

The SVU squad in Manhattan is called in when a Brooklyn boy never comes home from his school in Manhattan. The problem that Mariska Hargitay and Danny Pino have is that this kid is from a gypsy clan and from breakaway parents from said clan. It's the first instinct of the police to start looking at the gypsy culture for clues.

A really big clue is this man-child, a Lenny like individual who lives on the same block as the victim and his family. Michael Barra plays the suspect who lives at home in a locked room with his and it's a performance modeled on what Lon Chaney Jr. did in Of Mice And Men.

No one from the gypsy community will talk unless the local headman gives permission. Michael Margolis plays him and the power he has over these people is frightening.

It's solved in the end and it's solved when Barra starts talking. As for who did it, all I'll say is the perpetrator is quite an amoral character.

Make sure you check this one out.
