Taxi driver Rajeeb Khandewahl accidentally runs over a teenage pedestrian boy and is brutally battered in hospital, where he later dies, by a gang of white trash who think the 'foreign scum' runs away. Grissom remarked his intestines are at the outside, which is very rare, and Dr. Albert Robbins' autopsy shows that the boy was run over after being killed by a stab wound; his blood traces to the park, where a hidden handgun is found, not a knife, and another dead man. His mother identifies the stabbed kid as Todd Branson; she says she was on the run with Todd and his kid brother Eric for her violent ex, which she told them to be dead. The corpse in the park has a typical knife-wielder's hand-wound and a fatal bullet-wound in the heart. The gun was John Ruark's, the corpse is Mrs. Branson's boyfriend Stewart Bradley and has a posthumously dislocated shoulder, as if dragged by a woman or a kid. Written by KGF Vissers

Mob Violence
15 January 2021 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A foreign taxi driver inadvertently runs over a young man. As he tries to call it in, a group of men assault and kill him. They claim he was trying to drive away. But there is more to it. The kid he ran over had been stabbed and probably passed out on the street and then was hit. This leads to a lot of connected characters and an interesting conclusion.
