Did You Know?


Four months before this episode aired six hunters were killed and two wounded in western Wisconsin when someone was ordered off private property. Detective Fontana made reference to hunting in Door County, Wisconsin as a boy. Door County is on the peninsula east of Green Bay. See more »


One of the people Fontana and Green interview says he and his friends like to go on day hunting trips to a local state park. It is actually against the law to hunt and to openly carry a loaded firearm on state park land. Though sometimes a person has to pass through park land to gain access to land where hunting is legal, while passing through park land their guns must be fully unloaded and there cannot be any rounds in the magazine, nor the chamber. Though this applies to any guns being openly carried, namely rifles and shotguns, it is legal to carry a loaded handgun on park land, as long as it remains holstered and concealed and the person carrying it has a valid concealed carry permit.

We all need heroes, Jack
18 December 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A SUV crashed into a restaurant during an ordinary day. The driver died right away, while one passenger and some customers were wounded. Witnesses outside the diner stated the car was chased and then ran off the road by another car, but they were not able to identify properly the make and model. The victim had actually stolen the car, so detectives tried to trace down what really happened that morning: in a wood upstate, four hunters had been killed by the victim who left the crime scene together with a hostage (Jake M. Smith), throwing shortly after the murder weapon (a semi-automatic rifle) in a dumpster placed just outside a gas station. A man noticed everything and he wanted to play a hero. When the teenager died at the hospital for kidney failure, McCoy was the only one who wanted to prosecute the "hero", against other people's advice:;the point is: is he a hero or a vigilante?

I like pretty much the plot, but I find it too unrealistic: there wasn't any reasons for what the killer had done apart from a little dispute on hunting issues. Then I think people shouldn't take the law into their own hands.
