One of the police officers on the committee (the one on the far right end) has error's on his uniform. He is wearing the rank insignia of a Captain (two gold bars) on his collar and shoulder, yet is wearing the badge of a Deputy Chief. If he were a Captain he would be wearing the same style of badge that Cragen wears and if he were a Deputy Chief he would be wearing a single star on his collar and shoulder. See more »

Too big to take down?
16 June 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One of the big criticisms I have of SVU is that a lot of the episodes went far afield from sex crimes. This is one of them, but I liked it as the events flowed both logically and frighteningly.

Christopher Meloni while driving on the Cross Bay Boulevard taking his daughter home finds a burning body in the marshes, bullet through the head and flames originating from the crotch. It has sex crime written all over it.

Well it is the right genre of crime, but the story is far more complex than that. The victim worked in some top security defense contracting firm making missile guidance systems. As a sideline he liked to molest boys until they became big enough to resist. He adopted one of them, played here by Adam Kaufman.

Kaufman confesses, a bit too readily for some. Benson and Stabler keep digging and for once Richard Belzer's conspiratorial turn of mind has some positive effects.

If you watch this episode you will love Gerry Bamman giving a performance of someone you could develop an addiction to hating. He's the deceased's employer, smug, self satisfied, and arrogant enough to think no one can touch him.

Stephanie March makes her first SVU appearance as ADA Alexandra Cabot and Ice T shows up at the very end to announce his transfer to the SVU squad. All in all a benchmark episode.
