Law Unto Themselves
10 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have seen increasing reliance on these private military contractors who employ soldiers of fortune. Unlike regular army personnel these folks don't operate with any rules of war so to speak. When you have power like that you become law unto yourself.

Holt McCallany who was a soldier and also works for private security had his daughter raped in Iraq while working for the company. No one was brought to justice so McCallany decided on a little payback. Let's just say that the CEO John Doman got a taste of exactly what McCallany's daughter went through.

This episode was the first of a few episodes where Harry Connick, Jr. made an appearance as a new Executive ADA. When he hears McCallany's story the whole thing intrigues him. In the tradition of Jack McCoy Connick jumps into this feet first with SVU doing their thing in the investigation.

This one isn't easy of course because forgetting even that the crime took place in Iraq, the New York County DA's office has some real tenuous jurisdiction. But they are investigating the cover-up as opposed to the crime itself. Doman's corporation has a long reach and plenty of juice.

Doman is one of those arrogant bad guys you love to hate. He's equally abetted by the company counsel Lola Glaudini.

Obviously far fetched but still good.
