Trivia

Writing a illegitimate prescription with either a stolen prescription pad, or attempting to forge a prescription pad of your own, or altering the dosage, drug strength, drug quantity, refill quantity or dispense date of a legitimately written prescription in New York state is forgery in the second degree, a class D felony which can carry a prison sentence of 1 1/3 to 7 years. If you successfully pass the forged prescription and the pharmacy fills it and the prescription was for a controlled substance, but it is later discovered that you used a forged prescription you will face an additional charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, also a class D felony. However if you intended to sell the controlled substance you obtained with the forged prescription you could face a charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony with a sentence of 3 to 5 years with no prior record and a maximum sentence of 25 years if you have priors.

Danny Ross: Bring Tommy and Malia in together, break them apart.

Hard to listen too.

This isn't a bad episode. It's just a topic that pushes my buttons. This isn't the first episode in the Law & Order franchise to deal with this subject. And every time I come across one of these it reminds me how much I dislike that part of this so-call community. Celebrating yet another group misbehaving and looking for even more special treatment is something that's just not needed. I'm an RN and I've been around this kind of deaf radicals myself. And I find it just a primitive and inexcusable as any bigotry. In my opinion stories like this serve as recruitment tools. Tools that help poison minds. All through this episode, the police have to deal with the same kind of lack of cooperation seen from street gangs. The story was difficult to sit through. Not because of the regular players. They did their usual good jobs. It was the subject matter that was the problem here. Radical deaf people that a grateful for children being born deaf is despicable in my view.
