The gun "Elvis" uses is a Steyr AUG (pronounced "Steye-er A-U-G"). Everyone keeps mispronouncing it as "st-air aweg". See more »


A.D.A. Paul Robinette: Cristobal's son, 19, police report says Gaitan put three bullets in the back of his head. Maybe Frank Hoover has a point.
Executive A.D.A. Ben Stone: Terrific. You don't like the system, go get a gun. We can paint the courthouse steps red.
Adam Schiff: A lot of people would rather give him a medal than a sentence. Frank Hoover has a case for extreme emotional disturbance.
Executive A.D.A. Ben Stone: I'm not hard hearted, but I don't get this one. It's premeditated, it's wrong.
Adam Schiff: I'm not up on my Catholic theology, but is self-righteousness a mortal or a venial sin...

Leave no witnesses
1 August 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Chris Noth and Paul Sorvino catch a heartbreaker of a case. A Colombian national and his wife gunned down in a fancy restaurant with their child looking on. As it turns out the man was heavily involved in the drug trade and was no solid citizen. Still, in front of his child?

The doer was also heavily involved in that trade and this group believes in leaving no witnesses. He is also a well known contract assassin for the Colombian cartel.

One truly shocking event happens courtesy of Michael Margolis one strung out druggie who will really frighten you with what you see. Sad for him he did this thing under police surveillance.

There's not much left for Michael Moriarty and Richard Brooks to prosecute when this is all over.
