When attempting to determine the rifle used by the sniper, Stella says it "appears to be a military issued AR-15.". The AR-15 is a civilian rifle, the military has never issued or used it. A CSI would know that fact. See more »

Never liked stella after this
31 December 2019 | by dtj-71251See all my reviews

This episode really put me off the stella character. Before this she always came across as an arrogant know all. The way she was quite happy to kill the horse, a police horse at that, was terrible! I was glad when she left the show. The episode itself was quite good, apart from her attitude to a working police animal. That's why I give it 7 stars but I never watched this episode again
