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.

A radical political agenda disguised as entertainment
1 May 2011 | by highwaytouristSee all my reviews

I am willing to let some slide political commentary in the shows I watch. But this episode of Law & Order SVU was a flagrant appeal to political correctness on a scale I've never seen before. Is there any real life case of murder that's even remotely like this episode? In it, there is actually a white child killer who claims he kills minority children because of patriotism. Then they put forth the claim that a conservative talk show host incited the crimes. The people who wrote and produced this episode are more guilty of indoctrination and inflaming people than the fictional talk show host it vilifies. They conclude this episode with one of the most ludicrous courtroom scenes in television history. This episode deserves universal condemnation.
