When Barba asks Benson about how many suspects she has shot, he says her file says she has shot two, and Benson agrees that is correct. However, by this time, Benson had shot three suspects-- Roger Silver, Eric Plummer, and Gordon Rickett (though Rickett was a non-fatal shooting). See more »


Olivia Benson: Carisi, bring in last week's vic. Show her a photo array. Go over every video from the shooting. Maybe he tosses the gun. And Rollins, where the hell is that DNA?
Amanda Rollins: It just went down to the lab.
Olivia Benson: So follow it. Test it yourself if you have to.

The cops shoot an unarmed Black Fulbright Scholar for running while black and matching the description of an active rapist. Sgt Judge Dredd Benson pretty much sits this one out.
