Storyline

Detectives Lennie Briscoe and Ed Green investigate the murder of Eva Harrison who appears to have been shot on the street in an attempted purse snatching. Eyewitnesses say it was a Hispanic kid on a silver mountain bike but can't agree on much else about him. The investigation leads them to Bobby Sabo, who has a long history of purse snatching. The detectives are under a lot of pressure to solve this case and Lennie in particular want to get evidence against Sabo. When they arrest him, Sabo tells Lennie the woman got what she deserved but no one else heard the confession. After crucial evidence is thrown out, Lennie begins to overreact when his credibility is called into question. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

When Marisol threatens to kill Bobby, Green says "Be our guest," referring to the classic song from Beauty and the Beast (1991), which starred Jerry Orbach. See more »

Goofs

Briscoe threatens the gang banger that sold the defendant the murder weapon by telling him they're going to charge him with murder in the second-degree and send him to prison for the next 25 years if he doesn't cooperate and tell them who he sold the gun to. However the victim in this episode was killed during the commission of first-degree robbery, which means that the homicide charge would be murder in the first-degree, not murder two. If the gang banger knew he was potentially facing the death penalty he probably would have talked sooner. See more »

Your superiors were all over you. You were failing.

A married girl was shot dead at close range by a hispanic guy who ran away with a 800 dollar mountain bike after an attempted purse snatching. Police didn't manage to find the shooter but they found the bike, owned by a guy who live in the housing Project. Unfortunately, the guy (Guillermo Diaz) was too fast for Lennie, but Green is fluent in spanish and the suspect was located at the airport terminal where the detectives arrested him. But Briscoe and Green had to work hard inside hispanic community to find enough evidences to lock him up. Lennie heard the suspect's confession during a street basketball game, but he was the only one, so he need a double shift together with Green to find the murder weapon. Did the old detective manage to get over all odds?

Police investigation took the greater part of this episode, lawyers took only the back seat. Lennie confronted his partner several times and he seemed to be the one under investigation. Anyway uncle Lennie, you will always be the best.
