When two young girls are similarly murdered a little over a month apart, Detective Odafin Tutuola decides to investigate the gruesome crimes. After a third killing, Fin discovers that all three children were "anchor babies" of immigrant families, and reaches out to the Center of Immigrant Services. After sifting through the Center's hate mail, and witnessing a fight between immigration lawyer Randall Carver and Joe Thagard, a fanatical follower of a xenophobic talk show host, Fin begins to narrow in on the killer.

Donald Cragen: [to Fin] When the Chief of D's gives an order, we follow it.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Unless Liv or Elliot bends the rules. Then you're out on a limb with them.
Donald Cragen: You disobeyed a direct order from your commanding officer.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Only thing I'm sorry about is I didn't get the front page. Three inches and no photos. If our victim looked like Elizabeth Smart, we'd have a task force and a million-dollar reward.
Donald Cragen: This isn't about race.
Detective Odafin 'Fin' Tutuola: Sure. You keep telling yourself that.

OK here it is
26 December 2010 | by ZebrafilSee all my reviews

The point of this episode which has firmly eluded O'Reilly and others is this: If one blames the pundits for what idiots do in their name, the same idiots will escape responsibility for their actions. O'Reilly unconscionably accused Dick Wolf of cowardice. Wolfs program showed the bad side of liberalism when it goes to far. And by the by; Glenn Beck accuses everyone who corrects his history as being a nerd blogger in his underwear living in his Moms house. Beck IS as his image is depicted in this episode: an impotent little man who has to make noise and O'Reilly needs to man up if he does not want to fall into the same hole.
