Cops go the extra mile for the wealthy
15 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The son of a wealthy real estate magnate is kidnapped while the father and the kid are on a subway on the way to a ballgame. This one requires a full maximum effort by the NYPD as this is a rich kid and probably being snatched for a ransom. But the whole thing bothers Mariska Hargitay who had eerily similar case of a young Hispanic kid around the same age, snatched just like that and was never seen again.

Digging a little deeper the squad finds a couple of more cases with same MO and they're also just like Olivia's case the method was the same, but how does the wealthy kid fit in.

When you're wealthy you can expect the cops to go the extra mile. Maybe if Benson had had the resources put out on this case she might have made an arrest and saved her victim.

Liza Colon-Zayas as the mother of the cold case victim gives a very touching performance. And the perpetrator of all these crimes is Tom Sizemore. Telling you what his connection was to all the victims will spoil it, but I will say he's some piece of work.

In the end the inequality of it all still bothers Mariska Hargitay.
