Compound with a coverup
28 December 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

On the flimsiest of pretexts this particular Law And Order episode starts with Jesse Martin and Jeremy Sisto investigating the murder of a young attorney who was representing her parents and their dry cleaning business when some over litigious nitwit decided to sue them for several thousands of dollars when the pants of a suit got misplaced. You have to see how this poor man suffered so.

But it's the pants they were misplaced lead this case into an investigation of a giant retail store chain that's rich enough to have its own police force. Ron Canada formerly of the NYPD and a mentor of S. Eptha Merkersson has quite the crisis of conscience as she waits for Canada to do the right thing that she knows he's capable of.

Will Chase is the retail store executive who's a bottom feeding skunk who thought of profit and loss and the balance sheet when he made an honest mistake and then tried to compound it with a coverup. And the image conscious business will do all to protect said image.

Business people can be loathsome.
