....as in Homophobia
8 April 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode of Law And Order has a gay man being killed and a baby being snatched from its cradle. The baby that the victim and his partner had adopted. Complicating things the baby came from a crack mother and is prone to seizure.

After the police find the killer and the infant, the trial starts and what it was turned out to be the kid's biological father urged by his biological mother to snatch the kid. She's cleaned up from rehab and wants the kid back. So Catherine Kellner prays on David Vadim's homophobia to get him to snatch the kid. It's not right for two gays to adopt his kid. When the victim resists Vadim beats him to death leaving a grieving partner played by David Pittu.

In this tragic story there is one amusing part and its provided by Santo Fazio who plays a delivery driver who happens to be on the scene of the crime. He decides to cash in on the crime by sending a ransom note because he's got lots of debt. Let's just say that some people are just not cut out for a life of crime. This one suffers from terminal stupidity. His interrogation by Jesse Martin and Jerry Orbach is priceless.
